Banks Music boss, Reekado Banks releases a brand new single titled “You Dey Mad“. This after the recent online drama between himself and Starboy for wanting to release the song ‘Omo Olomo‘ featuring Wizkid during the #EndSars saga and the unrest in Nigeria.
Reekado keeps doing what he has done for much of the last year, broadening the edges of his music-making and incorporating newer elements into the process. On “You Dey Mad,” he goes for waspish call-and-responses interjected with textured crooning that ever slightly advances this record.
Gently increasing the lilt of his voice as the song progressed, Reekado Banks turned a defiant message to something slicker and lustrous hinting at the transformative quality that stands him out as one of Nigerian pop’s best singers.
Eventually, “You Dey Mad” fades into muted garbles and woozy reverbs, but not before Reekado Banks has served a reminder of why Off The Record, due for release on November 27, will be on at all kinds of places upon its release.
