Out of all the songs that Davido has been a part of this year — from DJ E Cool’s “Ada” to Mayorkun’s “Bobo” — DMW’s “Mind” remains one of the standouts. So, we were pretty excited when “Aje”, the second DMW collaboration of the year, was announced.
Unlike the solid “Mind”, which found Davido teaming up with Peruzzi, Mayorkun and Dremo, “Aje” replaces the last two artists with Yonda and Fresh VDM (who still retains production duties, but gets tagged as a featured act) — making for a much less impressive outing.
The song starts off with Peruzzi — who just landed a ‘Rookie of the Year’ nomination at The Headies — praising his lover over other girls he’s met around the world. Davido and Yonda follow suit on their verses, with each singer taking turns with the catchy but repetitive chorus.
For the drab music video, which was directed by Dammy Twitch, they all head to Dakar, Senegal. Save for the welcome change in location, everything else about the video is rudimentary. The fact that they went to the stunning Dakar and couldn’t capture even a bit of its beauty is really telling.
