Davido And Tilla Just Dropped A Video For Their Perfect Collab “Oni Reason”

More afropop 🔥.

April 07, 2016

Last fall, I spent a few days with Nigerian pop star Davido in his hometown of Lagos for the cover of The FADER's Global Issue. On a balmy Saturday night, I watched as he and a producer-engineer spent a couple of hours in his home studio recording a freestyled verse for "Oni Reason," a collaboration with fellow afropop singer Tilla (not to be confused with the London singer and Little Simz affiliate of the same name).

This week, Tilla and Davido dropped a video for the infectious, club-ready track, a contemporary Naija pop tune that recalls the vibe of South African house. Watch above as Tilla and Davido play a pair of lackadaisical cops tasked with responding to a home invasion; it's not a particularly convincing performance, but the song goes super hard.
