Johnny Drille confronts naysayers in new single 'Palava'


Progressing at an impressive pace, Nigerian singer-songwriter Johnny Drille isn't showing any signs of slowing down. He has released his second official single of the year titled Palava, and he has a lot to about "bad belle" people.

Johnny Drille gets refreshingly candid on this self-produced track, addressing the struggles and challenges that come with his success. He doesn't shy away from calling out his doubters and haters, the "enemies" who haven't believed in him.

However, Palava isn't just about the Palava (negativity/problems). It embodies Johnny Drille's resilience and faith. While acknowledging the struggles, he weaves in prayers and pleas for divine intervention, showcasing his trust in God. Combining his vulnerability and determination creates a powerful and relatable listening experience.

Following the release of his earlier single, For You, Palava injects a fresh dose of energy into Johnny Drille's musical calendar. With its candid lyrics, an expertly produced sound, and a good message, Palava is that one song every true lover of good music should listen to.
