Davido And Mayorkun’s Prayer Song … For The Church Or The Clubs?

Prayer

Review by @jimancipation

The guys at DMW have taken it straight to church with this very impressively sonorous and tuneful offering that immediately gets you up on your feet, bumping your head, snapping your fingers and wriggling down your waistline to the inducing beat. The production obviously shone the most with how a variety of local percussion were improvised in their individual parts to sync almost effortlessly into a unified and harmonious celebratory sound.

One might say the song lacked that high energy in vocal showcase that a Tope Alabi would have wired into the mix, still, you can’t help but applaud the efforts in vocal direction from both Mayorkun and Davido. The blend in voices was nothing short of perfect especially from Davido who by the way did major work in serving some cream and honey on the backups. Then again, we got to hear Mayorkun voice beam like the star we all supposed him to be. But come to think of it, Davido and his crew are the ones who found a common denominator that unites the church goers and the night crawlers? How inapt!

Rating: 3.2/5

Wedding bells need a jingle. This song, Prayer, is a good fit for that purpose. The high life sound would definitely get people rocking. Interestingly, it is not lacking in lyrical content too. Its lyrics touches different areas of life but the central story is about recording success in life. The general mood of the song can be described to be a mood of celebration.

Although, Mayorkun did most of the singing on his own, Davido added a welcomed flair. It excites me that Davido appears to be getting it right with DMW unlike the HKN formation. Good musical releases are coming from not just him, but other artistes in the label like Mayorkun. For Mayorkun, he has serious doubts to clear, as he seem to have struggled since he released Eleko, but with this song, he delivered the goodies.

Rating: 3/5

I’m guessing this was supposed to be the official “owambe” anthem for the next few months or the whole year even. The intention was obviously to keep the lyrics (especially the chorus) as simple as possible and also throw in a bit of “Baba God” in there seeing as religious stuff seems to catch on fast with people in these parts.

It has a very likable tempo which makes it easy for the older folks to relate with; however, like a lot of the music from the DMW camp, there’s nothing special about it.

Mayorkun hasn’t rediscovered the formula that birthed “Eleko”, and Davido…well…is just being Davido. Puts together a couple of watery lines, plays around the rhythm and flows on it. Again, nothing particularly special about his being on this song.

I would have loved Mayorkun’s vocals to be tested a lot more with this song because we all know the brother has a decent voice.On a scale of 1 to 10, this song gets at best a 5 from me.

  1. Make sense,na church nd club song,mayorkun nd davido did a good job on it.

  2. It’s a wedding jam… None of the above, that should be common sense

  3. Club

  4. The song was more of a wedding stuff, so I’ll say it’s aimed at Valentine’s period

  11. for me i both church & club

  12. #Prayer by HKN ft Mayorkun Adewale Davido
    Title : Prayer
    Artists : DMW_Hq ft Mayorkun Adewale Davido
    Minutes: 03:35
    Here is Davido’s first song for the year 2017. The song got the DMW baby boy Mayorkun working his magic as usual.
    Title: Prayer
    When i first heard the title of the song i felt relaxed like , meen Mayorkun can help OBO on this song and we wont be listening to ; i get 24 ni***g in ma hood…. i get private jet tins… lols .( you know what i mean)
    I think the song will enter every party now most especially the #WireBoys cough***
    Production :
    The production was fantastic!
    The trumpet was well placed at the right place thumbs up to #FreshBeatz! .
    But why copying the Talking drum intro of @AdekunleAdekunleGold`s #MyLife from the Gold Album (track 2)
    ”eromi eromi, irorun lobe Maggi” — ”fikan wekan, emalo fikan wekan”
    Please i`m not against being natural , but lets be ORIGINAL and come up with something new.
    then while talking about your people in America, why did you miss the beat ? blike say na highness in the studio abi? please dont tell me its suspense or skill from the producer .
    Style :
    Do we call this Fuji-Hipop/Highlife ?.. But Swaah master Mayorkun, nailed the song , because at first i felt Mayorkun was the owner of cos he did the major part of the song! …eyan biggy special speciallll #bravo

    Lyrics :
    With the lyrics here, i got confused earlier Mayorkun was thanking God ,later changed to hailing people ( KWAM 1 style). then came this :
    ”aunty you see me, you come dey shako simi .. otidijeta tarira …shalerira lotunla ?.i dey pray for Alubarika ..
    Then OBO came up with wedding lyrics! *eye ball rolling* like kini Davido tunko bayio ( whats Davido singing now ?)
    ” its a happy day… we are just here to celebrate… its your wedding day ..honeymoon go dey.. after 9 months pikkin go dey..”
    So is it a wedding song or general song?
    *Confused artists
    *Confused Lyrics
    Although its radio worthy as everybody can easily connect with the song.
    Mayorkun needs to work Hard this year and prove doubters wrong and for Davido calm down and get someone to arrange your songs
    Verdict :
    37%

  13. Best Collabo so far

  14. Best Collabo so far…both church and Club

  15. Still copying on top your matter vs ibadi

  16. they copy on top of it matter lol
