Negative reception greets D'banj's new single

Multiple award winning Nigerian artiste Dapo Oyebanjo’s (popularly known as D’banj) latest single ‘Oyato’ has continued to elicit negative reception from music fans across Nigeria.

Released on Saturday, the 3.24 minutes track is the first song the G.O.O.D Music star would release since he left Mo’Hits Records early this year. 

Though dedicated to his fans who stood by him through his “trying times;” D’banj also reached out to his haters in the song telling them he’s still the best around.

“I see all these Pharisees/ All them say all na fallacy. 

Wetin dem talk no matter at all/What God has done no man can destroy.

At the end of the day no contest/They know me they know what I’ve accomplished….,” he sang.

Playing his trademark harmonica in the track, Oyato is also D’banj’s first song without his former partner Don Jazzy’s signature beat.

Reactions to the song began to trend on twitter minutes after its release as his fans began to express their dissatisfaction.

“As wack as ever… Never expected something better though,” a fan said in a tweet.

“With ‘Oyato’, I am inclined to think that D’banj would have never made it as an artiste if Don Jazzy wasn’t his producer,” another one said.

Another disappointed fan said in a tweet: “At some point when you are listening to ‘Oyato’, you would check again to see if you actually downloaded the right song (because) d song is too wack.”
