Davido introduces a chinese themed video for The Best ft. Mayorkun

Davido has released the visuals for his single “The Best” featuring Mayorkun. “The Best” is the 7th song produced by Fresh VDM on his 17 track sophomore album, A Better Time, dropped last year. The album features the likes of Mayorkun, Nicki Minaj, Tiwa Savage, Bella Shmurda, Sho Madjozi, C kay, DaBaby and a host of many others.

Speaking on this project and what it means to him, he put out a tweet stating;

“The Best” they say is relative. They say we should all regard ourselves as ‘The Best’ in order for us to believe sufficiently in ourselves. Others say you’re arrogant when you proclaim yourself the best. While some of us are just happy to be able to produce some that others call ‘THE BEST’. Whichever way you look at it, you’re looking at THE BEST!!! OBO x Of Laylay!! @iammayorkun @dammytwitch#ABT

Plunge into a world of Swords, Karate and broad-rimmed Chinese hats. Mayorkun learns from Davido to become the best fighter in order to steal the heart of a girl. Wande Coal even makes a cameo appearance. The video was shot in Lagos and directed by Dammy Twitch. Click here to watch.

Mayorkun & Davido Hold On To Love In ‘Betty Butter’

Mayorkun has had quite an impressive run in 2020. First with his stab at grime and Afro-swing ‘Geng‘ which birthed a wide range of freestyles, covers and official local and international remixes. Then he stumbled into the Southern Amapiano sound with the self crowing record ‘Of Lagos‘ whose video was made of a story-so-far montage. And now, the singer is back to afrobeats with what he calls his first official single of 2020, ‘Betty Butter‘.

This is a full in-house product as Mayorkun taps Speroach Beatz for the production and secures an assist from his label boss, Davido. ‘Betty Butter‘ is a team-up many DMW fans are so delighted to see,  as the last time we had the duo on a record was 2018 smash hit record, ‘Bobo‘ which is still a fan favourite.

On this record, however, the pair aren’t playboys flaunting wads of cash or brandishing the perks of their celebrity status. On ‘Betty Butter‘, they are pleading for love. “Which one be say you no wan come give me your heart? Baby, I’m never letting go” Mayorkun declares in the chorus.

Listen to the soothing love single above.

Watch The Video For Dapo Tuburna And Mayorkun’s ‘See Finish’

About a month ago, fast-rising singer Dapo Tuburna teamed up with DMW star Mayorkun to release ‘See Finish’, his first single since ‘Penthouse’ with trap sensation Psycho YP and former label mate, Ycee. Produced by Quebeat, the track meditates on over-familiarity. It finds both acts dishing out guidelines to prevent ‘see finish’ and demystification which would strip you of your respect. “No let them see you finish,” they ultimately submit.

And just earlier today, Dapo Tuburna has unveiled a very colourful video to accompany the raving single, directed by Bash Em. Enjoy the video above.

 

Mayorkun Fields A Super Team Of M.I, Vector, Sinzu & Ycee On ‘Geng’ Naija Remix

Mayorkun scored a big one with ‘Geng’. Released to kick off the year, the song has been one of the most successful Nigerian songs in the past couple months. The song also generated it’s viral moment when it dropped with several acts jumping on the beat to deliver their covers. This cultural moment has now morphed into a four-track EP the DMW star titles “Geng Remix.” This compilation includes remixes from different geographic zones featuring an all-star cast of Kwesi Arthur, Ms.Banks, Ricky Rick and others.

For the Naija remix, Mayorkun taps some of the best rappers we have around, feilding a super team of Sinzu, Ycee, Vector and M.I. Over the all too familiar Quebeat-production, Sinzu opened the floor with a fire verse which we had initially heard on Twitter. Sinzu rides the beat like a wave with a bullish delivery that set the bar high for the other rappers coming behind. Ycee followed up with his cheeky verse enwrapped in multiple flows. Vector, however, did not live up to the hype, coming through with a lukewarm verse while M.I came out guns blazing at detractors to close the record.

Enjoy this record above and let us know who you think killed it.
