Tiwa, Fireboy, And Now Darey! August 2020 May Be The Most Memorable Month in Nigerian Music History.
For all the craziness that 2020 has blessed us with, one of the highlights of the year has been some really good music, as well as the promise of new music by some of our faves.
From Burna, to Wizzy, to OBO, to Tiwa and even Fireboy, there is a long list of A-list stars that are waiting in line to “burst our brains” with some good music.
But there just might be a wild card, one that may have slipped under the radar, but also one that has the potential to eclipse them all.
Multi-talented singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and Creative Director, Darey aka Dare Art Alade has been trying his hands at some new interests over the last few years, and his last time in front of the camera saw him host the music talent show, “Access The Stars”. However, many will remember that Darey is still one of the most talented vocalists in Nigeria, nay, Africa.
So, with his recent tweet hinting at new music, after a four-year hiatus, fans are super stoked to hear what the music maestro has been up to.

Wow! Turns out Darey Art Alade is dropping new music, years after his last project.
This one's titled 'Jah Guide Me,' and will make Darey's return to the mic after his last showing. https://t.co/krHXggTSNA

Music heads like Joey Akan and Bizzle are already psyched at the announcement and the whole of twitter was waxing lyrical about the potential of a 2020 album from Darey. Particularly, after he teased some new music when he graced the stage with Teni during the BAFEST concert in Lagos, late last year.
Check out the pre-order link here, and let’s keep our fingers crossed on what to expect from the man that gave us classics like “Pray For Me” and “Not the Girl”.
