If there has been anyone that took the Nigerian music industry by storm the most, HKN music artist,David adeleke aka Davido ,is a name to reckon with, in this regards. He is one afro-pop sensation that has proved over and over again that he is not a one hit banger. The ‘dami duro’ crooner climbed to limelight and is still waxing stronger ever since he dropped his debut album not quite long. He’s quite young and considered by many to be naive, but not withstanding, we all love his music, even as frivol as the lyrics may sound. so far, he has done well enough to the point where every right thinking person can say categorically that he didn’t just get lucky. Although he had support and funding in millions of Naira to advance his cause, the Kid undeniably has got something to offer, having studied the game and mastered the art. From he’s debut LP; O.B.O, here is a list of my favorite top 5 songs;
at no.5 would be ‘Ekuro’; an indigenous love song – to put it simply. The hook of this song was in fact, a profound adage in Yoruba and I think that’s what makes it special. His sincere and ingenuous delivery on the track made it my pick for the no. 5 spot.
at no.4 is Feel Alright* ft ice prince. a song for the boys. It had this lay back feel that just makes you want to chill. a fusion of rap and afro-centric singing always pans out to be something worth hearing and this was another one of such nomenclature that lived up to expectation. Hence, it graced my no. 4 spot.
‘Gobe’ is at no 3, and at no.2 is *one of a kind and my no 1Davido song which I feel is everybody else’s number one as well, is a song we all loved so much and did vibe to like never before. It was produced by shizzy for HKN music and recently featured international act Akon on the remix . Its none other than ‘Dami duro’!
