We've hacked the code: when you want something to happen, talk about it on Konbini! We discussed how female Nigerian musicians rarely ever collaborate, and shortly after, we got the Yemi Alade and Waje collaboration.
After this, we asked for the next collaboration to be a better song and here we are now with "The Way You Are" by Di'ja ft Tiwa Savage off her brand new EP, Aphrodija.
Di'ja came on to the scene after being signed to Mavin Records in 2013 and was introduced to us on their monster hit "Dorobucci". After the release of her hit single "Aww" in 2014 her fan base grew, and given her sparse single releases here and there over the years, it was time for a full body of work!
Her debut EP, Aphrodija came out last week and consisted of seven brand new songs - one of them featuring Tiwa Savage. The music gods really heard our cries and gave us what we wanted, as the song is super danceable and enjoyable. Di'ja and Tiwa Savage's vocals really compliment the catchy mid-tempo beat produced by Baby Fresh, and will warrant a dance move or at least a toe tap when it's played!
Now that this window has been opened, we hope to see even more female collabs in the music industry. Since we're getting what we want by just talking about it, we would like a song from Simi and Niniola next! Do your thang music gods!!
