Drawing inspiration from his late mother, her passion and strength, his loving and supportive wife and numerous achievements of African women across the world, Darey extols the positive virtues of the African woman in this guitar-laden anthem for womanhood.

Lyrics

Verse 1

Like the very first time
I opened up my heart to love
Like the very first sun
After a cloudy day
Like the shiny stars up in the sky
You are beautiful, you're beautiful

I put my hand in the air one time
For all of my African Women
I'm singing lalalalalala
To all of my African Women

Hook

You're beautiful (x7) oh yeah

Verse 2

When you see amdeywaka (when you see her walk)
E be like say na angel dey pass (as if an angel is passing by)
She no getwahala (she’s stress free)
She know say she be very high class (she knows she’s very high class)
She no needi makeup (she needs no makeup)
Is a natural sometin (it’s all natural)
You are beautiful, oh you are beautiful

Chant

Obinrin Lo l’aiye (x2) (Womenfolk are custodians of the world)
E se ike fun won (pamper them)
E se itoju won daa da (show them great care)

Classic R&B with a smooth flow, well written lyrics and vocal arrangement. Darey delivers the lovers’ song of choice. It’s infectious and danceable but yet original and easy to sing along to.

Lyrics

Verse 1

Baby, from the very first time I laid eyes on you, you got me
Got me thinking I could be your special someone
Maybe you don't understand?
So I'll say it again, I wanna be your man
Baby I know you heard it all before
But I can guarantee that you’ll never search no more
For somebody to love you for who you really are
Just the way you are baby you're a star

If you give me your heart (if you give me baby)
I go give you my world (baby no be lie)
I go give you everything
Treat you like a Queen
If you let me I go dey love you die

Hook

If you let me love you, I’ll Love you I’ll place no one above you, above you
I go dey there by your side (will be there by your side) Never make you cry,
If you let me, I go dey love you die (If you let me, I'll love you forever)

I go dey love you dey love you die (x4)

Verse 2

Imagine if you had somebody that you could tell anything
Somebody who understands you
Somebody who listens
And I know that it's hard to believe
But my darling you'll find it in me
So baby bare your heart
No need to be afraid
You can show me all your scars
I'll take away the pain
You've been hurting for a while
And I think that it's time
For me to make you smile For me to make you mine

This monstrous collaboration with Darey’s long time music partner and close friend Cobhams Asuquo, shows why Darey is regarded as the King of R&B. The song addresses the question of truth versus perception in a very sensitive relationship that can only be saved by trust.

Lyrics

Verse 1

These four walls can testify
To how many times that I have tried to
Convince you that I'm just a victim I,
Don't know how else to make you see
Not everything is what is seems
Believe what you will
But be careful the words that you say
Cuz they might ricochet
And the worst that you fear...

Hook

Maybe I should lie to you
Cause I'm tired of trying to tell you the truth
Girl my heart is breaking and I don't know what else to do
Maybe I should lie to you...oooh

Verse 2

What more is there for you to know
You already have my telephone
Searching for something that just isn't there
Question me is all you ever do
Listening to what your friends tell you
And in the end you'll be left with the words that you say
And they might ricochet
Cuz the worst that you fear

Bridge

Girl I'll swallow my pride, I got nothing to hide..
And the least you could do is believe that it's true
I won't walk out that door because you're insecure
Girl I love you enough...to lie

Maybe I should lie to you
Cause I'm tired of trying to tell you the truth
Girl my heart is breaking and I don't know what else to do...
Maybe I should lie to you...oooh

There’s never a right time to enter the next phase of life. There’s also no guarantee that venturing will bring success. Darey and the Soweto Gospel Choir deliver perhaps the only satisfactory solution to the dilemma that comes with progress; “what if it fails?” Pray it doesn’t and keep moving!

Lyrics

Verse 1

Woke up one Sunday morning
Told my daddy I'm leaving home
I'm going off to the city tomorrow
Even though I don't know where to go
And daddy said “son don't be a fool,
Cos life in the city is unbelievable
You could get broken o you're just a lil’ boy
And you may never find your way”

And I said; I know I could get lost (I know ah)
I know I could get broken (I know ah)
Forgive me father but I gotta take a chance
Oh I'm already gone so just

Hook

Pray for me (Gbadura fun mi)
Pray I find my way (K’oriba mi se) (that my destiny paves the way)
Forgive me father but I gotta take a chance
Oh I'm already gone so just…

Verse 2

Hello Daddy how you doin’?
Hope mamas doing ok?
It's been 4 years and eleven months now
Mo gbopeAduketi di agba (I hear Aduke is all grown)
You were right when you said to me
That life in the city is unbelievable
Had to struggle just to get by everyday
And I could barely find my way, sugbon (nevertheless)
Mo mopemo le sina (o da mi Loju) (I know I could get lost) (I’m cocksure)
Tori peaiye le (aiyeyisoro) (For the world is difficult) (This world is perilous)
Forgive me father but I gotta take a chance
But I'm already gone so just…

The old soul that Darey is, combines the old and new perfectly on this song. The song talks about that special woman and how she makes him feel all the while extolling her virtues as they head for the alter again and again and again

Lyrics

Verse 1

De tin wey you do me o (The things you do to me)

Bridge

Amin (Amen)

Olamide brings a playful, street-hop energy to this version of the song. He takes it to the club while Darey holds it together. The synergy between the two is palpable and highly entertaining.

An exciting, edgy remake of the highlife classic by Bobby Benson who was one of the pioneers of highlife music in Nigeria. Darey keeps it on the dance floor using some aggressive synths and heavy percussion. A fun remix of the ever so popular “Taxi Driver” and Lagos vibe of the 1950’s.

A sensual reggae themed love song featuring soul songstress, colleague and friend of many years, Asa. This is the first time ever that Darey & Asa will collaborate and what better way to excite their fans than with a sexy tune as this! They blend well together to create this lovers rock masterpiece.

Lyrics

Verse 1

Like a fire in the rain
I caught your eye you took my breath away
As I watch you let your hair down
Like a wave across the waters
When we kiss I feel your tender lips
With my fingertips I’ll walk all over you
And I gaze into your eyes
As our bodies intertwine, like I was meant to always be

Hook

Inside of you (3x)
Let me live inside you baby
Inside of you (3x)
Let me live inside you baby
I give everything my heart, my soul and all of me
Let me live inside your heart

Verse 2

So baby come take me to the moon
We can make love like in the movies
You can play the lead and I'll be your co-star
We can make 50 shades of romance

A somber, dark love song that basically highlights the regrets of a man who has lost his love due to his actions, inactions and temper.

For everyone who has experienced defeat and harsh criticism, this song raises the spirit from the ashes to a refreshingly new level of self-belief and positivity. It features another appearance by multiple Grammy Award winners, Soweto Gospel Choir.

Lyrics

Verse 1

They say I can't do what I love
But nobody knows what tomorrow holds
What if I'm good at it, what if I try
What if my heart has helped to open my eyes
One day I will take this whole world by surprise
It's just a matter of time, just a matter of time (I go make am oh)

Hook

Don't let nobody tell you say you no go make am
(Don’t let anyone tell you that you won’t make it)
Because one day your light go shine and your star go bright
(Because one day your light will shine and your star will be bright)
Don't let nobody tell you say you no go make am
Don't let nobody tell you say you no go make am o

Verse 2

Oh, I see the light at the end of the tunnel
Even though, they say the road that I walk has been travelled,
Travelled before…
What if I'm good at it, what if I try
What if my heart has helped to open my eyes
One day I will take this whole world by surprise
It's just a matter of time, (I go make am oh)

Think Stadiums; think Olympics, think Success, think Competition! This is the song for every winner out there. No matter what the situation is, it serves the purpose perfectly. The soundtrack to a winner’s story, a winner’s crowning glory, a winner’s anthem!
