Around the years 2015–2016, Skales was the target of constant mockery. After signing with Baseline Records, he really needed something to truly represent his entrance onto the music world.

He released the Afro-fusion song “Temper” in the fourth quarter of 2016, along with a music video.

The Krizbeatz production was very outstanding, and it was merited to be touched on by someone with legitimate Afrobeat experience.

Enter Burna Boy, who at the time was also coping with some non-musical difficulties and negative press. He combined it with his distinctive lyrics and his Fela persona, and the music was universally appealing.

Burna Boy took the original song, tore it to bits, and then pieced it back together, giving the impression that it was a completely new work.

This song became a certified banger thanks to the fresh vibe and rhythm that it had.
