Davido may be young but it doesn’t it doesn’t stop him from consistently dropping hit records. The talented singer’s latest, ‘Aye’ is a modern day masterpiece. Produced by Tspize, associated with Runtown, the song tells the story of a peasant farmer who fell in love with the King’s wife and couldn’t resist her. The mid-tempo nature of the song is a slight departure from Davido’s usual sound, but it works really well.
I remember the first time i heard the song, I was at a bar and the bartender couldn’t stop humming it, as a result the melody stayed in my head for days!
The video, directed by the one and only Clarence Peters compliments the song perfectly, it has been commended for it’s creativity and fresh perspective on African culture.
With ‘Aye’ Davido has proven a point that he is something to be reckoned with and it looks as though he will be out to dominate the charts for a long, long, time.
