Femi Kuti & Wizkid's 'Jaiye Jaiye' Acoustic Cover From Newcomer Dunnie

Nigerian newcomer Dunnie covers Wizkid and Femi Kuti's 'Jaiye Jaiye' collaboration on her acoustic version.


Nigerian newcomer Dunnie found one way to grab our attention. The Abuja-based soulstress recently introduced herself by way of a stripped down cover of one of our favorite tracks of the past year, the massive cross-generational Femi Kuti/Wizkid collab "Jaiye Jaiye." On her mellow-cized (albeit still foot friendly) makeover, Dunnie belts over campfire guitar-lines in lieu of the original's staccato-laced saxophone lines and Wizzy's signature dancefloor call. Listen/download the acoustic "Jaiye Jaiye" below and look out for more covers from Dunnie. We hear this is the first in a series to come.
