British rap pioneer Sway Dasafo teams up with Turkish born producer and guitarist Zagor to bring you “Return” by 5ive 9ine.
The duo’s debut EP features two new singles, ‘Born a King’, along with lead single ‘Punch Back’ featuring British YouTube personality, comedian, actor and rapper KSI.
Both tracks were used as part of the build up for the 25-year old’s second amateur boxing fight against American vLogger Logan Paul, which drew a crowd of 22,000 at Manchester Arena and over five million viewers online on August 25.
After six 3 minute rounds, the bout was ruled a draw by the ringside judges, with the duo set to face off in a rematch at an as-yet unconfirmed location in 2019.
