“One year after releasing his double album “Double Dare” King of R&B Darey Art Alade has released a smashing new cut – the first single from his forthcoming fifth album. 

Titled ‘Asiko’, Darey’s new single is diverse in style, exciting in vocal delivery and generally super confident in theme. And the music giant recruits beloved South African group Jozi and acclaimed rapper Ice Prince, to deliver a material that’ll please fans across Africa and beyond.

Darey, a multiple award-winning singer-songwriter, regarded as king and pathfinder for the R&B genre in Africa, says “Asiko is Way ahead of my time; it is something fresh and futuristic”.

Produced by Chocolate City’s Jesse Jagz and the Soul Muzik team, Asiko blends Pop, indigenous sounds and rap music to create a collaboration that’ll break music barriers and open a new vista in African music.

“Working with Jesse Jagz, Jozi and Ice Prince was really nice, I love the fact that we come from different music backgrounds. They have this flavor that’s good for the kind of music we wanted to make, and they loved the idea, the music. It was fun all the way…”

After the release of his last single “Sisi Eko” (remix, featuring Flavor) in July 2011, Darey took a brief time out to handle a couple of high profile gigs – hosting popular TV musical reality show, Glo Naija Sings, Gulder Ultimate Search and Amstel Malta Showtime to name a few. Then he followed up with the signing of his protégé Mo Eazy, as well as putting together machinery to drive his label Soul Muzik to the top.


ASIKO LYRICS – DAREY ft Jozi, Ice Prince

Chorus

Mo koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, no
Mo ti koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, won kere si numba wa

Verse1

I’m sick of this car, I’m about to hop up on my spaceship, headed for the future, my mind is way ahead, of all these haters wishing I was dead, but who they can’t get they can’t touch…
We taking this to the sun, cos we the chosen ones
We gon’ do this anyhow anywhere through any kinda weather. Y’all better realize, this is part of our lives.
Call me a dreamer I’m a believer….

Chorus

Mo koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, no
Mo ti koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, won kere si numba wa

Verse 2

She look like she wanna go, anywhere that’s beautiful, I look at her cutie cool and tell her things that she needs to know. Strange enough I ain’t really the type, to tell you what I don’t like, that’s what you mean to me that make me wanna ride;
I ain’t the one to judge but why lie when you can lie in the arms you love, I still try even though I ain’t the one to trust, but man I just can’t get enough. You’re like me, always on another level. Same bike, same ride but a different pedal. Same mind, same grind but a different mettle. So I gotta let it be better…

Chorus

Mo koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, no
Mo ti koja Asiko, won le fi mi sere
Awon eleyi won to, won kere si numba wa

Verse 3

I believe I can fly, I believe I can rise,
The kinda strength that takes me through the ocean and the tide. And even when I’m weak and all my muscles getting tired, I hustle hard till I’m the boss in the black tie.
I turn dreams to reality, I fight demons for real I’m beaming for sanity. And I think I’ve found a meaning to action, I’m scheming for real till my name’s in the caption. We let bygones be bygones, we dey make cheese and mehn we no need to buy gun. See me sittin on top I guess its my turn, dem haters wanna bite me, shey na python. Okoja asiko, me I go dey carry go, me I go dey hustle till my Dangote like Aliko, ladies wanna see me flow, some wanna have my baby yo, some wanna do me do me do me do me till I crazy yo, right…
