Music legend, D’Banj releases new EP
Nigerian afrobeat music legend D’banj has released a new EP “Stress Free” Produced by XOU, CheekyChizzy, Ritzybeatz, TunezFactory, Tuzi, TUC, Supabeatz, Rexxie and Tefa
The EP has 8 songs, and featured artists like Seun Kuti and Egypt 80, Burna Boy, Cheekychizzy
On “Stress Free”, D’banj slips into Afrobeats innovation mode, visible in the multi-layered fusion of horns, saxophones and futuristic synths across tracks. The Egypt 80 brings the horns on the Afrobeat fusion, “Zombie”, and the Afro-meringue mix of “Welcome To Lagos” as well as the free-wheeling “Stress Free” and “Banga”.
The release will take place concurrently with a music video for the eponymous single, “Stress Free”, which brings to life D’Banj’s invitation to live on the lighter side by letting go of what you can’t control and taking care of what you can.
