Toronto-based hip-hop songwriter and artist, Kafayé, is on
the rise! From performing on large stages alongside Reggae greats like Beres Hammond and Nadine Sutherland, to raging in mosh-puts as a member of “No Tourists,” Kafayé has the positive vibes and creative influence that make him shine! There’s no question that this song is from over the border, but like we’ve seen with so many of the artists from Canada, this song has all the makings to be a hit song.
Kafayé’s single, ‘By Your Side,’ is a mix of feel-good pop music, with influences of hip-hop and soul. With an urgency and verve, its catchy hook and rhythmic melodies, it is meant to make you reminiscent of your first love.
‘By Your Side’ is an amalgamation of past experiences and moments shared with those who have left a lasting impression on Kafayé’s heart, whether from an intimate relationship or a platonic one.
Kafayé understands that when you find something real, you want to hold onto it forever. ‘By Your Side’ channels this, showing us his vulnerable side. This is a narrative on the beauty of love, proudly professed by Kafayé, through his expressive lyrics, full of unrequited emotion.
“As long as you need me, I’ll stay by your side.”
‘By Your Side’ is the led single off his upcoming 12-track EP “Far from Perfect” which dropped November 17th 2020.
