Watch the Music Video for DJ Spinall's 'Dis Love' Featuring Wizkid and Tiwa Savage

The artists drop another massive collaboration for our listening pleasure.

Tiwa Savage and Wizkid have done it again. The Nigerian superstars and frequent collaborators have reunited for another banger—this time joining forces with DJ Spinall on his latest track "Dis Love."

The sultry banger, produced by Spellz, sees them once again delivering a song made for the dance floor in the vein of their massive 2017 collaboration "Ma Lo," and DJ Spinall and Wizkid's 2018 standout "Nowo."

The song opens with Wizkid singing about an intense love, and Tiwa Savage joins in on the second verse, following suit. The real standout is the song is its catchy hook. The video is equally sultry, with Spinall, Tiwa and Wizkid in a dimly-lit lounge performing the song while surrounded by several dancers.

Wizkid and Tiwa teamed up last year for the highly-buzzed about video for Wizkid's "Fever" which was the most watched Nigerian music video of the year. The two seem to always make a statement when they collaborate, and "Dis Love" is no different.

Both artists appear on Beyoncé's recently released The Lion King: The Gift compilation album, with Tiwa appearing on "Keys to the Kingdom" and Wizkid joining Queen Bey and Blue Ivy on the popular "Brown Skin Girl."

Last year, DJ Spinall dropped his fourth studio album Iyanu, and we're excited to see what else the artist is cooking up for the rest of the year.

For now, check out the music video for "Dis Love" below.

Interview

A Candid Conversation With Olamide & Fireboy DML

We talk to the Nigerian stars about the hardest lessons they've learned, best advice they've ever been given and what Nigeria means to them.

Olamide and Fireboy DML have been working together for three years, but the first time they sit down to do an interview together is hours after they arrive in New York City on a promo tour.

It's Fireboy's first time in the Big Apple — and in the US — and the rain that's pouring outside his hotel doesn't hinder his gratitude. "It's such a relief to be here, it's long overdue," he tells OkayAfrica. "I was supposed to be here last year, but Covid stopped that. This is a time to reflect and refresh. It's a reset button for me."

Olamide looks on, smiling assuredly. Since signing Fireboy to his YBNL Nation label in 2018, he's watched the soulful young singer rise to become one of Nigeria's most talked-about artists — from his breakout single, "Jealous," to his debut album Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps, hit collabs with D.Smoke and Cuppy, and his sophomore release, Apollo, last year.

Even while he shares his own latest record, UY Scuti, with the world, Olamide nurtures Fireboy's career with as much care and attention as he does his own, oscillating between his two roles of artist and label exec seamlessly. His 2020 album Carpe Diem is the most streamed album ever by an African rap artist, according to Audiomack, hitting over 140 million streams. When Olamide signed a joint venture with US-based record label and distribution company, Empire, in February last year he did so through his label, bringing Fireboy and any other artist he decides to sign along for the ride, and establishing one of the most noteworthy deals on the continent.

Below, Olamide & Fireboy DML speak to OkayAfrica about their mutual admiration for each other, what makes them get up in the morning and how they switch off.
