Lady Donli Shares the Music Video for Her Infectious Single 'Cash'

The Nigerian artist declares she's #AddictedToCash on an exciting new single, produced by The Cavemen.

Update 4/8/19:

Lady Donli shares the music video for her latest single "Cash," directed by Kewa Oni and Seun Opabisi. It sees the singer performing before a small, intimate audience in a disco ball-filled room. She's cool and energetic as she sings about her love for cash, backed by the talented production crew The Cavemen. And, since it's only right, the video ends with the singer being sprayed with wads of dollar bills.

Watch the music video for 'Cash" below.

Lady Donli is back with her first single of the year, and it doesn't disappoint. The Nigerian artist has shared the infectious track "Cash," from her forthcoming album Enjoy Your Life.

The fun, mid-tempo track, produced by Benjamin James and Kingsley 'Knote' Okorie of the Nigerian live band The Cavemen as well as the artist herself, is all about the pursuit of money. "I'm addicted to cash" she sings several times in her honeyed voice atop the song's catchy production.

The song gives us major warm weather vibes, brought together by the singer's alt-jazz vocals and The Cavemen's airy and string-filled production.

"Fueled by the hustle of life, rhythmic flows of highlife and the addiction to chasing the key to the beauties of the world, this song speaks our truth; we're all addicted to cash, making it, spending it, losing it," said the artists of the song's theme.

Last year, the artist spoke with OkayAfrica about some of the struggles of making it as a Nigerian artist. She shared the single "Games" last June, and we've been looking forward to more from the singer since. It looks like we won't have to wait too much longer though, as her upcoming album Enjoy Your Life is set to drop this summer.

Angélique Kidjo on Africa Day: 'We demand not to be at the mercy of our circumstances anymore.'

We speak to the inimitable Angélique Kidjo who shares some of her refreshing thoughts on Africa Day.

Today is Africa Day and while primarily a commemoration of the formation of the African Union (AU) back in 1963, it has also become an opportunity to unapologetically celebrate Africa while providing a moment for reflection on how far we've come as a continent and as a people.

With this year's theme focused on "Silencing the Guns in the context of the COVID19", there has never been a more important time for deep reflection on our collective present and future as Africans.

And who better to share in that reflection than the legendary and inimitable Beninese musician Angélique Kidjo? A fierce African and artist who has paved the way for many of her contemporaries including Burna Boy, Davido, Thandiswa Mazwai, and several others, the four-time Grammy award winner emphasises the urgent need for unity among Africans. 'It's about time that people start realising that Africa is a continent. I've been saying this my entire career,' she says passionately.

OkayAfrica spoke briefly to Kidjo who shared some of her refreshing thoughts on this year's Africa Day.
