I must confess that the first time I heard the single ‘Ba Ni Kidi’ (Give Me the Beat), the respect I had for Dare Art Alade hit a new peak. I thought it was pure brilliance in the form of a song. With its thumping baseline and ever changing tempo, the song delivers not only in production but composition as well; only normal in the work of the enigmatic producer Cobhams Asuquo, a long time Darey collaborator. (‘Ba Ni Kidi‘ is one of the singles off the Double Dare album released late last year.) Darey is yet to disappoint with any of his videos and after seeing this one, I don’t think he’s about to start now. The video was directed & produced by Mark Hofmeyr and Soul Muzik. Darey once again shows there’s no substitute for quality. Enjoy!
