Nigerian British Hip-Hop and drill emcee Tion Wayne, born Dennis Junior Odunwo, has released his highly anticipated drill record “Healing”. The hard-hitting single, produced by South London’s Crumz & GA, is released alongside a massive visual treatment shot in Nigeria, Ghana, Great Britain and at Sidhu Moose Wala’s residence in Punjab, India.
Wayne had been teasing the record for a while and was perhaps working on the single while travelling across Africa, Britain and India. In fact, the ‘Celebrity Killer’ rapper arrived in India this week to film the ‘Healing’ music video in Mansa, Punjab and give Moose Wala his flowers. The far-reaching visuals are directed by London’s influential filmmaker Wowa.
Notably, with ‘Healing’, Wayne has made a ruthless return to U.K. drill laced with incendiary lyrical prowess.
“T Wayne, I don’t f*** with snitches
From Rambo blades in kitchens
Nearly cried at my first six figures
Funny how I came in the dance laughin’
Now I send them home with stitches
It’s funny how things change (Things change)
Thousand pounds on slippers (Slippers)
Twenty pads on my shooter (Shooter)
Fifteen bags on my Mrs.
I made a mill’ on the lifestyle, didn’t know I came up with killers (Grrt)
Nino got my back, that’s bro, got my back like Vidić (Ayy)
Four .44’s long, auto semis, ran through more than a military
Now I really donate guns in Eddy
What’s that? Big smoke like Skeppy (Mm-mm),” Wayne raps on the Crumz & GA-produced drill record.

Tion Wayne’s latest single is one of the numerous ways through which Hip-Hop superstars across the globe continue to remember Moose Wala. The Punjabi rap’s tall figure was killed on May 29th last year.
Further, Wayne gave London-based Punjabi and UK rap superproducer Steel Banglez and Outlaw Records’ Sandy Joia for “making India possible.” Banglez linked up with Sidhu Moose Wala and Burna Boy on “Mera Na” – Moosa’s third posthumous effort since his controversial murder in Punjab.
