New Music: Darey – Ba Ni Kidi | Sisi Eko



Darey keeps the ball rolling by releasing two more singles from his forthcoming album.

One of the songs is “Ba Ni Kidi,” which in English means “Give Me The Beat” – The track was produced by Cobhams alongside Eldee and Darey and is described as a “spine-tapping Euro-styled pop club banger, laced with some traditional Hausa style melodies.”

The other track is “Sisi Eko” – This track is “dedicated to everyone who has ever made a sacrifice for love!”
The track was produced by Cobhams and Darey.
