At a young age, I was addicted to MTV Base, that showed every week day, on Silverbird. A lot of my favourite artists, I discovered them through the show. But I can’t forget how I got addicted. That very day, in 2012, I had seen the Video of Darey’s “Sisi Eko,” the remix which featured Flavour.
To be honest, it was classic!
That must have been the big break for Darey, the general acceptance of the single was just impressive. Darey is an RnB artist, and ’11 was a year, when rap music was still dominating. If it was not hip-hop, then it was Afro-Pop. Never highlife, never RnB. But, somehow Darey had managed to gain his ground, in the Soul/RnB music genre. Flavour too, was doing fine.
Having served us a sound that stood out.
So, Darey wanted to do an album, and the highlife “Sisi Eko” actually made the cut. His “Double Dare” album had dropped, and the critical reviews were in favour of the Soul Muzik singer.
Then, just when we thought he was done with the album, he wowed us by releasing a Remix to the track ” Sisi Eko.” And, on it he had featured “Oyi” crooner, and one of the few Igbos making waves in the industry, Flavour N’abania.
Flavour added his own spice to the jam, and it went gaga, across the country.
While many other bangin’ collabos have come out of Nigeria, don’t you think “Sisi Eko” is the classiest?
