PREMIERE: Darey ft. Jozi & Ice Prince – Asiko

Post by Ovie O, May 9th, 2012

Darey’s back! Read the write-up below then listen to the track.

“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”.

“I am never scared of stretching my imagination. Africa is the future, and the world will know that through our music”.

The new work, he says, is “a product of an unquenchable desire to make good music even better; and make happy fans even happier”

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.

Darey’s pedigree as a creator of good music and his professionalism makes him one of the few contemporary Nigerian artistes recognized and respected globally. He released his first UK single “The way you are remix” featuring Chamillionaire on June 19, 2011 to commercial and critical acclaim; topping the Billboard Next Big Sound.”
