DAREY LINKS UP WITH PATORANKING TO RELEASE AUDIO & VISUAL TO BRAND NEW SINGLE ‘JOJO’

The track releases alongside visuals and features on the Nigeran’s forthcoming Way Home EP

Multiple award-winning Afro&B star DAREY has joined forces with reggae-dancehall artist PATORANKING on his brand single “JOJO” released today via Livespot Entertainment. “Jojo” is the second offering taken from Darey’s upcoming EP titled “Way Home” set for release later this month and is available for pre-order HERE. “Jojo” follows the successful release of “Jah Guide Me”, which shot to the #1 position in the Nigerian singles chart, entered the top 20 on the UK iTunes chart and has gained over 1 million streams on all platforms since its release last month.

Produced by Pheelz “Jojo” is an infectious summer party jam which sees Darey and Patoranking trade verses amidst sun-kissed, high-energy percussion and spiritual flutes. Directed by Mex Ossai and Darey, the music video, shot entirely in Lagos, Nigeria, is pristine and tells a story of a world post-lockdown, a reality which humanity longs for. The video opens with Darey riding alongside Nigeria’s first all-female biker crew, Female Bikers Initiative (FBI), and features iconic city shots, electrifying dance moves, good vibes and colourful outfits.

Marking Darey’s second flawless single release in quick succession, ‘Jojo’ is the kind of track that demands a positive dancefloor reaction.
