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.

Here's What You Need To Know About The Political Unrest In Sudan

Thousands have been protesting the Sudanese government over the weekend, supporting the military's plans for a coup.

Sudan's transitional government is in turmoil as thousands of citizens conducted a sit-in protest against them, over the weekend. A group of Sudanese citizens have called on the military to disestablish the nation's current government, as the country struggles with the greatest crisis they've seen since the end of former dictator Omar al-Bashir's controversial ruling, two years ago. The weekend's pro-military protests come as anti-military protestors took to the streets earlier this month to fight for civilian-ruled laws.

Military-aligned demonstrators assembled outside of the famously off-limits entrance of the Presidential Palace located in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum on Monday. Gatherers set up tents, blocking off access to two main intersections, cutting off access to the capital for those inside. Police attempted to wave off crowds with teargas, with Khartoum state officials saying they had, "repelled an attempted assault on the seat of government," in a statement issued Monday.

The assembly was called for by a coalition of rebel groups and political parties that support Sudan's military, accusing the civilian political parties of mismanagement and monopolizing power under their ruling. Demonstrations began on Saturday, but Sunday's gathering saw a lower attendance. According to Reuters, by Monday afternoon, thousands, between 2,000 - 3,000, had returned to voice their concerns. 52-year-old tribal elder Tahar Fadl al-Mawla spoke at the helm of the sit-in outside of the Presidential palace saying, "The civilian government has failed. We want a government of soldiers to protect the transition." Alongside a 65-year-old Ahman Jumaa who claimed to have traveled more than 900 kilometers (570 miles) from Southern region Nyala to show his support.

Protesters are demanding the appointment of a new cabinet that is "more representative of the people who participated in the December 2019 revolution that eventually led to the ousting of former president Omar al-Bashir", Al Jazeera reported from Sudan. Protesters headed towards the Presidential Palace, where an emergency cabinet meeting was being held when they were met by police forces.

Pro-civilian political parties have plans for their own demonstration on Thursday, the anniversary of the 1964 revolution that overthrew Sudan's first military regime under Ibrahim Abboud and brought in a period of democracy that the country still struggles to uphold.


Sudanese Twitter users shared their thoughts online, with many drawing similarities between the current unrest and other political crises the nation has faced.
