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.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
