Things Are Hard, the build-up track leading to the release of the album. reflects on the state of affairs in Nigeria; ranging from societal issues like FSARS brutality to the continuous decadence of the Nigerian economy and the hope of a better Nigeria.

Baba Kuboye features extracted vocals from his mother, Fran Kuboye’s 1995 album on the lead single of the album,  titled One Day. According to him, he grew up performing alongside his mother but never anticipated losing her at an early age; which was his source of inspiration in creating this song, even 20 years after her demise: “…a long overdue tribute to her memory.” he said.

Championing the #OneDayEGoBetter Campaign / Initiative, the artiste reiterates that having an icon like Fela Anikulapo-Kuti as a model helps him focus on the real things that give depth to his music. He is a civil and women rights activist, who makes conscious effort to create socially relevant music, and airing the oddity in the Nigerian economic system, all of which is packaged in this new project titled – One Day.
