If you love Olamide’s music and treasure the bars of late Yoruba rapper, DaGrin, you’ll love Davolee. Born Oluwasegun David Shokoya, Davolee was signed to Olamide’s YBNL record in November 2016. He hit the limelight after his ‘Panda’ cover went viral. Now, he’s back with a fire Yoruba rap song with an interesting story line. No metaphors, no complicated Yoruba adages, just pure rap telling the stories of Segun himself working in ‘Festival Bar’, (a drinking parlour in Ikotun, Lagos) with his smart-ass colleague Salewa and their abusive boss, Mama Gee. Check it out!

Warning: Fire Yoruba Rap Ahead!

If that sounded like total gibberish to you, we feel you. These guys have translated the song into English for your pleasure.

Isn’t this fantastic storytelling? More of this, please!
