You Need to Hear Lady Donli's New Single 'Games'

-The rising Nigerian maverick drops an ambitious funk-filled banger featuring GJtheCaesar.

Zainab Donli, popularly known as Lady Donli is the 21-year-old singer-songwriter spearheading the new wave of Nigerian alternative music. The "all-round creative" is known for her soothing vocals and soulful alt-jazz sounds.

We got to know the talented songstress a little better in her 2017 debut EP, Letters to Her, an intimate 6-track project exploring the complexities of relationships and unrequited love.

Donli positively returns with "Games," the long-awaited first single off her forth-coming album. This time she experiments with a more up-tempo production that blends funk, soul, R&B and dance music.


With a playful yet mature lyricism Donli showcases her artistic growth and London-based talent GJtheCaesar offers an enigmatic energy to the track as they sing about the mind-games that lovers often play.

We definitely cannot wait to see what's in store for us from Lady Donli's upcoming project but right now it's safe to say she's clearly not playing any games when it comes to her music.
