Skales’ ‘Ajaga’ Featuring Timaya & Davido Belongs on Your Summer Playlist

The ‘Shake Body’ singer impresses with his latest club-ready drop.

Skales shows no sign of slowing down after parting ways with his longtime manager Osagie Osarenkhoe and signing a new management and PR deal with Upfront and Personal last month.


The “Shake Body” crooner delivers club-ready joint “Ajaga” with the help of fellow Naija artists Timaya and Davido, who recently left the Barclays Arena crowd beaming after the historic One Africa Music Festival.

Produced by Egar Boi, the bass-rumbling “Afrofusion” track, as Davido likes to call Nigerian pop music, sizzles and will be a welcomed addition to your summer’s playlist.

We’ll be definitely on the lookout for the “Ajaga” visual as it could introduce us to the next dance craze that rivals Shoki.

Press play at the top, and groove.
