Watch the Humorous Video For Davido's First Single of the Year, 'Flora My Flawa'

Davido returns with a fun and playful new single to start the year off.

After a prosperous 2017, Afrobeats heavyweight Davido shows no signs of slowing down. The "Fia" singer returns with his first official song of 2018 "Flora My Flawa."

The lighthearted song boasts a unique, uptempo melody. One that, at first, is not as easy to sing-along to as previous hits like "If," but we're sure it'll grow on us eventually.

The video follows a girl whose friends poke fun at her for being in denial about her and Davido's relationship. The video starts in present day, and ends 30 years in the future, where Davido now has a potbelly—but is still performing with ease—and the three women are now Auntys, still trying to convince their one naive friend that Davido isn't the one.

It's quite entertaining, and features fellow artists Dremo and Mayorkun, Nollywood vet Ngozi Nwosu and more.

Davido announced an upcoming feature with South African rapper, Cassper Nyovest back in January, so it looks like we can expect even more heat from the artist very soon.

Check out the video for "Flora My Flawa" below.
