Davido’s “If” In Review

Listening to Davido’s new single for the first time, this phrase kept ringing in my mind ‘Davido is back!’ This new song is a hit back to back in contrast to the other songs he released after his creative control was offered to Sony and began to experiment with new sounds that had seen him struggle.

Produced by talented producer and singer, Tekno, the tempo, beats and drop-stop drumkicks were impressive and gave this song it’s uniqueness.

The lyrics of the song is filled with humour as well as a lot of meaning. It tells of the wooing and promises he offered his lover so she could accept him. Even the epic line ‘no do no do no do gra gra for me…..’ from Lagbaja’s hit song brought a swift acceptance and recognition by Nigerians.

The video which endeared his fans more shows Davido on a street in London, in love with a lady played by popular dancer and video vixen, Nqobile Danseur. She is also a model who’s worked with Wizkid, Rihanna, Drake and so on. Davido as usual also bragged about his money and how he uses it to attract women.

 All in all, it is not out of place to think that Davido is back on track with this hit single and is sure going to wow his fans with more mind blowing songs.
