Listen to DJ Neptune's Spirited New Song 'Ojoro'

The renowned disk jockey features Nigerian great D'banj and up-and-coming artist Flash in this single.

After teaming up with Davido on his first single of the year "Démo", DJ Neptune continues collaborating with exceptional Nigerian musicians. The talented D'banj, who needs no introduction, as well as the fast-rising singer Flash, join DJ Neptune this time around to bring us "Ojoro", his second official single of the year.


A few weeks ago, DJ Neptune released the EP Love and Greatness which featured artists such as Davido, Runtown, Mr Eazi and Olamide and several others. Following that 6-track project, he's already onto the next musical production with his new single "Ojoro".

On the track, both D'banj and Flash make promises to their respective lovers about how they wont commit "ojoro" (which translates to cheating) even if they're presented with some very tempting opportunities. The new school sound of Flash, who takes charge of the song as he sings both the hook and two verses, mixed with D'banj's veteran sound in the closing verse, make for a song that you definitely need to be listening to.

The up-tempo beat, which was produced by Magic Sticks, samples from the great Fela Kuti's 1976 song "Zombie".

Listen to "Ojoro" on Apple Music and Spotify.

How You Can Help Nigeria’s #EndSARS Protests

We round up some ways you can support the movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.

Widespread protests against Nigeria's notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are becoming more of a revolution. The movement is an outcry from youths demanding a general reform of the country, majorly characterized by poor governance, with a focus on the harassment and assaults committed by SARS. The movement has been raging through the city of Lagos for the past three weeks, as protesters home and abroad have taken to the streets in masses to express their keen dissatisfaction.

Hashtags like #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality, and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria have brandished across all social media platforms to amplify the voices of the youth people fighting back. These hashtags have, in turn, gained traction with the help of celebrities like singers Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Beyoncé, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and many others. Nigerian stars, Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and many more also joined in the movement, as many of them took to the streets with placards.

To date, the peacefully protesting Nigerians' needs have not been met. With said needs not being satisfied as they demand justice for lives lost due to the brutal and corrupt practices of police officers.
