Nigeria’s King of R&B Darey just released an exciting remix of ‘Sisi Eko’, one of the lead tracks off his recently released double album. On the track, he features the prince of Highlife and ‘hook master general’, Flavour Nabania. The new single was produced by Darey and Del B at Soul Muzik studios (SMS) in Abuja.
Darey’s international profile is growing rapidly, following the release last month, of his first UK single. On June 16, he landed at Number 2 on the prestigious Billboard (Next Big Sound) chart. He was Number 25 only few days earlier. His debut UK single ‘The Way You Are’ featuring Chamillionaire is getting rave reviews from the UK press – with analysts suggesting he ‘could be the one that’ll finally import African-made R&B into Europe’. His self-titled UK album is due to be released later this year. Listen to the track below.
