Davido Just Dropped a New Remix of 'Fall' Featuring Busta Rhymes & Prayah

Davido's massive 2017 hit is still making the rounds in 2019.

Davido's mega-hit "Fall" is two years old, but it hasn't slowed down a bit.

In fact, it seems that the 2017 song is gaining more attention than ever, as it recently became the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history. And now, the Nigerian pop star has released a brand new remix of the song featuring Brooklyn-based MC Prayah and the veteran rapper Busta Rhymes.

Busta Rhymes, who teased the remix on Instagram, opens the track with a few of his signature animated lines, before Prayah jumps in after the first verse. The remix stays pretty true to the original, with the original production and verses from Davido still in tact.


The record-breaking track became the first Nigerian video to amass 100 million views on YouTube last year, and has been a defining song in the growing international afropop scene. With its ongoing success, it makes sense that Davido would try and give the song an extra push with the new remix.

Was it necessary per se? Maybe not, but it's here. Have a listen down below.

This past Tuesday, protesters calling for the disbandment of the infamous and an end to police brutality, were shot at by security forces at Lekki Toll Gate. The incident occurred shortly after an abrupt 24-hour curfew had been imposed by the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the AU has called for all involved "political and social actors to reject the use of violence and respect human rights and the rule of law" and recommended that they "privilege dialogue".
