Darey in advance of the release of his new EP titled ‘Way Home’ scheduled for October, has released another single ‘Jojo’. The single which already seems like a hit single was released September 18. The single ‘Jojo’ which features the reggae dancehall artist Patoranking is the second single from the upcoming EP. It was released immediately following ‘Jah Guide Me’ which the artiste released in August.
Darey took to his social media page to announce the release of the new song which is quickly becoming a sensation not only in Nigeria but in Africa and UK. Seems like ‘Jojo’ will be a banger as the promising single came with a dance step which Darey was seen showing radio presenter, Walepowpowpow of maxfm in an interview session on the wetindey show which the presenter co anchors.
The newly released track has already shot it’s way to #1 on the Nigerian Singles Charts and the Top 20 UK iTunes Chart. It has definitely announced the comeback of the artiste since his last musical work in 2015.
Although, Darey is popularly known for his hits such as ‘Not the Girl’ and ‘Pray For Me’, the silky-baritone singer is redefining his taste through a groundbreaking genre that he terms Afro&B. Looks like ‘Jojo’ promises to relive the party spirit with its high-energy percussion, compelling vocals, and pulsating beats.
Shot entirely in Lagos, Nigeria, the music video is pristine and tells a story of a world post-lockdown, a reality which humanity longs for. Apart from the iconic city shots,
electrifying dance moves, sweet vibes, and colourful outfits, the video features an all-female biker crew.
