While Speaking about “Alone” and its creation with Afrocritik, Kemuel said, “It was a Thursday when ‘Alone’ took shape, I remember because it felt like the weekend, but it wasn’t. Having crafted the beat earlier that day, I kept listening to it until the lyrics came pouring out. I’ll be honest with you about the inspiration – before (the) music started happening for me, there was a girl in my life, but relocating to Lagos to pursue music was detrimental to our relationship. I realise now that I was somewhat blind to the strain that caused. We had gone through countless fights because of the distance between us, so this song is all the things I would’ve said to her to provide some level of assurance, but I never did, and in the end, we broke up.”
