New Music: Iyanya Feat. D’banj – Kukere Remix



This is definitely one of this year’s hottest collaborations!

When MTN Project Fame West Africa season 1 winner – Iyanya, released Kukere in March 2012, it was no doubt that the song would quickly become a national anthem as it was a breath of fresh air from Iyanya, who had previously released other buzz worthy singles including Love Truly and I’m the One.

Now, the Kukere master has collaborated with the Koko Master himself – D’banj for the remix of this hit track. We are totally loving the track produced by D’Tunes with the two masters (Kukere master & Koko master) as it is definitely one all party goers will enjoy all day and all night.

Iyanya, we do have one favour to ask – Can you kindly release a video for this remix. Thank you, we wait in anticipation!

Listen to Iyanya Feat. D’banj – Kukere

Also, here’s a clip of Iyanya‘s performance of “Kukere” at Davido‘s album launch

    This is remix is really unnecessary because the original was very good. I still prefer the original.

    Sorry but you guys(Bellanaija) sometimes make such bold claims about some songs. “One of this year’s Hottest collaborations”, says who? I say simply post the song with info about it and leave us to form an opinion.

    Anyhoo my opinion is that this remix is trash, love the original though.

    ok so i know that dbanj has never been great lyrical but seriously what the hell was he talking about in this remix??..not only was he spitting rubbish but his delivery did not go well with the beat…mehn, there is just something off about dbanj now

  14. Annie

    August 20, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Lol before dbanj’s voltron attack me y’ll this song is totally not for dbanj like dis is totally diff frm what we knw dbanj for hence d wackness.Dbaj’s genre is comletely diff frm iyanya’s.

    Crap, Crap, Crap! Original was perfect, so perfect in fact that a remix was not necessary!

  21. Amarachi

    August 21, 2012 at 1:22 am

    @Henry I totally agree with you D’banj spoiled this joint. Inyaya you should have left the original and featured d’banj on another track, see how d’banj has put sand in your garri now.

    Most of us find it hard to be very objective when reviewing music in Nigeria. Check out my post and read my own view of the song.

    I love D’Banj and I’m glad that he has too much money in escrow like he says in the song but the original by my towns boy Inyanya is Gr8, If fact it’s off the hook!!. Ova Sweet dey worry the Tune! BTW check out the Etighe dance that’s hot in Calabar now. From London to Calabar that’s how I play!!!

    i swear, i have said it before, the moment d’banj joins illuminati, it will be the beginning of the end of his career

    dbanj is forever chatting shit in songs man..

    The difficulty of not being too subjective when doing a review. Tsk!
    I like this remix though 🙂

  37. adeseyi

    August 21, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    iyanya’s a certified “ODE”…..did he have to make a remix of dt song wif the “kolo master” of all people….you should have featured terry g, reminisce, or timaya if you wanted to do sumfin crazy wif that song….definitly not d;banj….that was a turn off….GOD, am super angry…so sure sum pple were dancing kukere in ur brain wen u tot to do d remix of dt song…

  38. Wildeyeq

    August 21, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    You all just want to hate on Dbanj that you have so easily forgotten that you were all so in love with his eccentric lyrics. Has he ever advertised himself as a lyrical genius or wordplay master? What does “Tongolo” mean anyways and didn’t we all love it?

    • Truth Sayer

      August 21, 2012 at 7:25 pm

      mehn you dey yan dust…… look at what you wrote again and see if that makes any sense to you…. be honest with yourself

    August 21, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    forward ever backward never. D my love, I think you are losing focus looking back. Nothing to do with this record. Just a side comment.
    The song not bad in itself then again the first version was good and could stand on it’s own.

    August 21, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    H8 Dbanj nd prefer d original version thumbs up @Iyanya

  41. me

    August 21, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Meaningless and offbeat lyrics from Dbanj…. It gets obvious by d day hw much crap Don jazzy was covering up b4….. I prefer d original anyday, anytime….

    @haters,may God help all of u!Hate D’banj frm now till eternity,he’s still on top of his game!So many of u don’t even think to digest wot the guy says regardless of his comical self.Once some of u hear him sing,the next thing is for u wicked ppl to get on ur computers or whatever and type ‘lyricless,meaningless,bullshit,crap etc.For Heavens sakes,give D’banj a flipping break and let him be.The fact that he starts off with his slangs ‘Filee,Oooooshee etc doesn’t mean he’s chatting rubbish’.U same pathetic people wld av prolly criticisized him if he switched to or switches to some different slogan.U haters always av summin silly to say all in the name of beefing the guy.Some of u are deafened by the hate u have for him and/or blinded by the hate u have for him that u don’t even give him a break.Regardless of some of ur hateful comments,D’banj is still doing verry very well with or without a Don Jazzy!Afterall,the singers who have featured him in recent times go to meet him and not the other way round so that tells u lot that he’s even more significant than he was whilst at Mo’Hits.
    @Truthsayer,ur the one who probably has issues with understanding wot ‘Wildeyeq’ wrote down….For ur information,Wildeyeq made ABSOLUTE sense so go check urself mehnn and quit beefing.

    Terry G, Danny Young or even Timaya would hav done better on dis track. Dis style wasn’t meant 4 D’banj. It’s a pity dat Iyanya doesn’t understand music genres

  48. John Tapiya Joseph

    August 22, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    from what I can see D’banj has so much fans that are ready to die for him even if he’s caught cheating red handedly, I dont hate the guy but the truth be said this did not come out as a remix Jor, D’banj failed to make the required impression please lets help our artiste by telling them the truth. the last time I checked even Vic-o had fans so am not surprised.

    August 23, 2012 at 9:37 am

    the lyrics was forced and very lame! yo an entertainer fine,an excuse for u not havin a good voice but not an excuse for u to voice out durt bags in the air cos u cant build good lyrics,whiz kid and tu face always make their collabos better than the original,u shd take a cue from them or hire a song writer if its hard for u to put together!his remix is a complete apology!il pass
