All thanks to Davido, Liya has one mild hit potential on her EP, “Alari.”
Oh, wait, it’s all thanks to OBO that she is an artist worth talking about, in fact. But today I’m not here to talk about DMW’s only girl. Neither am I here to talk about her recently released EP that has all but gone into oblivion.
Instead, this is about how Davido is not getting enough credit for the things he’s been doing as of late.
Davido‘s album did not live up to the hype, granted. But hey, the poor guy put in a lot of effort to get “A Better Time” done, and it was a decent effort, if we’re not going over-the-board. People say it’s disappointing, fans say it’s okay, I honestly don’t care.
What I care about however is what Davido has been doing with guest features.
For the most part of 2020, he was all over the place, giving out guest verses to everyone, from the relatively known Ajebo Hustlers to the promising Cheque, to the South African sensation, Focalistic, and even offshore to people like the deceased Pop Smoke.
And, while you can say there’s nothing special about his album or his own songs, what you can’t say is that he has not delivered when it comes to collaborations. Davido has simply done more than anyone else, on that front.
2021 is almost over and Davido hasn’t stopped delivering. He’s not gearing for a new album and he’s not on the Billboard Hot 100. But he’s still everywhere he can be, making other artists’ songs better.
One of his recent stellar performances will be what he did for his artist, Liya, just about a month ago. On the song “Lakiriboto,” which was released as a part of Liya‘s debut EP, “Alari,” Davido stole the show by bringing back a vibe that only he is known for.
The song was perfect for Davido. The instrumental was phenomenal, as afro as Davido wants it, and it has that amapiano vibe that Davido‘s been on lately too. The combination makes it a perfect one for the “Heaven” singer.
Liya played her part, wove in a catchy hook, leaving Davido with the work of finishing up the song. Without Davido, the song would have been okay. But after hearing it with the boss on, I don’t think anyone even wants to hear the version he’s not on. And it’s not just because of the contagious ad libs.
Davido had a short verse on the song. And since the song is kinda fast-paced, he had to just enter the song, drop what he has to drop, and get out before it gets cold. That’s exactly what he did.
The verse he did is reminiscent of the old Davido. Forget what you heard, but this is one of the few times when Davido screaming at the top of his voice didn’t spoil the song.
