A few days ago, Lady Donli hosted a very energetic Stay at Home concert on Instagram Live. Alongside performing some of her fan and personal favourites, the alte frontman also teased new music. And as promised, ‘Wonda Wonda’ her first 2020 single is finally here.
Featuring Darkovibes, one of Ghana’s leading singers, this new record serves as the first Donli record since her culturally successful debut album “Enjoy Your Life”, which was one of the best projects of 2019.
In a recent interview with Native Mag, she revealed that “I made “Wonda Wonda” in November of 2019 in Lagos. I was meant to drop it in like February, but like the dates kept getting pushed back by reasons beyond me. I actually wanted to shoot a video, we had even done the treatment and everything was set to be shot in April, which is when I was originally slated to return to Lagos, but obviously, that didn’t happen.
Right now, there’s so much uncertainty on whether I will ever get to shoot a video or when all this COVID-sh*t will end so yeah I was just like let’s drop it now cause it’s been ready and people want to listen to it.”
Produced by Kuvie, ‘Wonda Wonda’ picks up where “EYL” left off, leaning heavily on Donli’s traditional African influences. It is a highly infectious single that features Lady Donli’s sharp but simple songwriting that drives the lyrics home right from the first listen. It’s also blessed with an easy-to-catch sing-along hook that will have you humming along as you listen. Enjoy the single above and tell us what you think.
