The song has attracted mixed reactions from listeners, with others saying it had political connotations, while others felt it carried sexual innuendo.

“I talk about a driver who has to be cautious on the road to avoid accidents. Others also describe the song in a sexual manner but, well, it is for the listeners to give meaning to the song.”

“We have worked together with Tamuka as a collective with other artists, but this was the first time we worked together without anyone else. The song was his idea. He just shared the concept with me when we were in the studio. I sampled the beat, wrote the lyrics and recorded in one day,” she said.

Health: In 2018, Lipsy decided to come out and tell the world about her medical condition in a lengthy Facebook post, she told of how society had shunned her and how she had lost friends because of epilepsy and it has impacted her career-making it hard to perform at times.

“Other musicians shying to disclose their medical conditions need to understand that we are the people’s voice and our job is to entertain and learn at the same time. So they need to speak out and share what they go through from what they know,” said Lipsy.

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of recurrent unprovoked seizures. A person is diagnosed with epilepsy if they have two unprovoked seizures (or one unprovoked seizure with the likelihood of more) that were not caused by some known and reversible medical condition like alcohol withdrawal or extremely low blood sugar.
