HKN record label singer, B-Red, has let the cat out of the bag about his much talked about song, 'Cucumber' which he featured international act, Akon.

B-Red narrating how it all happened said he actually wrote the song himself and recorded it but when he and Davido decided to stop by at Akon's studio in America, the story changed after the singer listened to the song which he kept putting on replay.

Speaking with Nation newspaper, he said, “While at the studio, after Davido played his songs for him, I also played 'Cucumber for Akon and the way he reacted, he was like 'please play that song again'.

Even Davido and his manager were surprised that what's going on! Then he made me play it for him like four times. He fell in love with the jam and said I should leave it with him and the next day, I collected it.”

The singer who many would have thought paid a huge amount of money to have Akon on the track, stated that everything was free as he never asked for a dime.

“Normally you have to pay for something like this, but it is the Grace of God, I got it for free. Akon is a legend so I am happy and thankful to God,” he said.
