It’s the track that’s generating a growing word of mouth in the region.

Kuwaiti artist Daffy’s first single Samboosa has been making the rounds on YouTube and social networking sites ever since its release last September.

Produced by fellow compatriot DJ Outlaw, the RnB song is built on a minimal drum track (akin to Snoop Dogg’s Drop It Like It’s Hot) and boasts an ear worm chorus that will surely lodge in your brain — for better or worse.

As for the quirky song title, the song is not an ode to the famed pastry.

Speaking to the Gulf Daily News, Daffy explained Samboosa is a nickname for a stranger.

“Samboosa is about someone that you like and want to approach, but you don’t know his or her name,” he said. “So you nickname them something, in this case Samboosa.”
