What will artists not do to generate hype and draw attention. Cameroonian artist Tity -P has not only remixed P-Square’s “Chop ma money” hit, he has also translated it. Yes people, translated it. After lacing the song with some coupé-décalé- style  singing, the guy goes ahead to translate the chorus into French. I know you’re  all eager to get the translation. Well, you’ll only have to listen to the track below. If this guy was seeking hype, he will surely get tons of  it. In a competition between this version ,the original and the Akon- featured remix, I think this one comes in second after the original. Nice try Mr. Tity-P but when the hype fades we’ll still be expecting more of your own hits.
