After an extended hiatus, the king of the Zanga, Durella returns with a collaborative effort titled “Shalaye”. Durella who is known to have ruled the airwaves for a considerable period of time during his glory days has now returned and he’s not alone, but accompanied with Super Cool Catz boss, Ice Prince Zamani of which is said to have delivered a worthy and appropriate rap verse to the song.
Oluwadamilare Okulaja Popularly known as Durella was a big name between the years 2007-2009 owing to hit songs such as “Shayo”, “Enemies”, etc but unfortunately he couldn’t last long in the industry. It was argued that He had similar musical style with the “koko master” D’banj. The track is a mid tempo beat with his very unfiltered and original vocals likened to Jarule or DMX, he puts Ice Prince who has been struggling as well with hits on this but he came into the picture possessing his own swag and style.
Popular reviews have argued that the song lacks the necessary creativity and spice stating that it embodies malnourished lyrics with poor instrumentals and rhythm. This is surprisingly a 2010 sound in the year 2020. Durella has just opened the way with this piece of work and we trust that subsequent releases would outweigh this in the terms of quality. We’re glad to have the singer back.
