And best of all, the release features none less than seven fantastic versions covering different genres, making it appeal to difference audience.” (March 25, 2012). Based on the strength of this single, Mwalim won the 2012 'Best Male Jazz Artist' category at the New England Urban Music Awards, also having earned one in 2010 for the album “The Liberation Sessions” and the single “Dem Big Girls”.
