Tope Delano’s Review
For some reason, his temporary absence from doing music in Nigeria but abroad as seemed to have had no appropriate effect on his sound, but again when your biggest achievement yet, is collaborating with another rapper who seemed to believe mumbling can also be taken as singing shouldn’t be expected then.
The song basically is about Wizkid being a great lover/boyfriend, with ‘dance’ getting an entirely different meaning and if not, am at loss as to why this played for the 3 and half minutes the song lasted: ‘Wizzy boy make we DANCE, Daddy Yo make we DANCE, Starboy make we DANCE, Daddy Yo Make we DANCE’, or is this his way of ensuring that his stint on ‘One Dance‘ is etched in all our hearts?
Production on this is lit, however the lyrics were just as good as a toddler who just started experimenting with speech. Daddy Yo, lacks the enthusiasm, heat or brilliance one would expect from an act who believed to have garnered some knowledge from higher counterparts in the game.
Africa’s best artist is not an easy feat to achieve, especially when you are Wizkid, who spent the whole of last year without a hit single. Our very own Starboy has been too busy on tours and collaborations that it took too much of his time.
Daddy Yo is not a spectacular song. In fact, it took three or more plays for me to cook up a vibe for the song.
It is a very average track which will of course stay on top due to prestige. Efya’s repetitive two-line chorus is probably the major highlight of the song.
No doubt we can all agree that Wizkid’s sound has changed overtime all thanks to the influence from his international alliances.
Like Baba Nla, Shabba and all of Starboy’s recent offerings, Daddy Yo will only be remembered as the average track it is.
