Reekado Banks Shines On Catchy New Dance Anthem, 'Yawa'

At this point, it's common knowledge that anything Reekado Banks touches turns to musical gold. He brought that energy into the new year with his fantastic feature on Tolani's "Ba Mi Lo", and now, he's continued to impress on the catchy and energetic new song,  "Yawa".

The beloved afropop star announced his surprising departure from Don Jazzy's Mavin Records late last year, and he has now officially announced the launch of his own record label, Banks Music, with the release of this song. 

Save for the tasteless R Kelly sample, the song is an absolute jam — in usual Reekado Banks fashion. The energetic beat arrests you immediately the song starts, assuring you that Reekado Banks is about to deliver a banger. 

"Yawa" is a feel-good song that finds the singer imploring us to dance our sorrows away, and given the infectious beat and his chantable hook, which says 'me I can't kill myself', the song is the perfect soundtrack to do just that.
