Davido’s massive hit “Skelewu” has been lighting up the airwaves from Nigeria to the UK and beyond. Renowned BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Trevor Nelson recently named it as his favourite “afrobeats” track of the past few months, adding that “every time that comes on, I just wanna dance.” It’s hard to disagree with that sentiment and, to keep the momentum going, Davido recently dropped this electronic shot in the arm remix of “Skelewu” from Major Lazer and their fellow Mad Decent signee Wiwek.
