Everything Is Okay, D’banj says in new single
Frontline singer, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo well known by his stage name D’banj has released a new single titled Everything Is Ok.
The song underlines the songwriter, rapper, entrepreneur and television personality’s new state of mind — joyous mood, after a dark few months of loss and turbulence.
Earlier in year, the No Long Thing crooner began the roll out for a new album, with the back-to-back release of two singles, Shy and the Slimcase-assisted Mo Cover Eh. Since then, there haven’t been any new updates about any project from him. Many pundits believe the singer has been busy with fatherhood duties in recent months.
The last time anything the self-proclaimed Mr Endowed had a major project was in August 2017, when he released the album titled King Don Come, with guest features from the likes of Gucci Mane, Wande Coal, Harrysong (Mr Songs), Bucie, and Busiswa. The album includes singles It’s Not A Lie, El Chapo as well as his 2012 mega hit Oliver Twist.
Set against fast-paced afropop drums, D’banj sounds as boisterous as ever, celebrating his good fortune, while urging listeners to dance away their problems since it will all get better soon.
“E bami yi s’oke, eyin bobo e jeun s’oke (help me turn the volume up, let guys enjoy themselves)”, he sings on the hook, adding a harmonica section that brightens the song even more.
Recall that ‘Mr Mensah’ like he is called by Ghanaian fans was introduced to the harmonica by his late older brother, Femi Oyebanjo, who died in a plane crash at age seventeen.
With D’banj’s love for music being greater than his parents’ military aspirations, he struggled for his parents’ approval; this can be best heard through an album track, All Da Way from his debut album.
