D’Banj enters 2021 with new single “Ikebe”


D’Banj made this known in Abuja, during a listening brunch of the album, which also had other tracks like “Banga” and “Antidote”.

Newsmen reports that “Ikebe”, which literally means buttock, was produced by Nigeria’s talented producer Rexxie.

D’Banj said he delivered the melodious number to create awareness on the need for the male gender to tread carefully this year, as heard on the track after a turbulent 2020 ended with the testimony of him welcoming his second child.

According to the artiste, the track says “oh Lord, help me, I no wan sin. I tell my body say you go die for this “Ikebe”.

“So much has happened in my life in a short time, which appeared to belong; so this album and others like ‘banga’ and ‘antidote’ are about my personal life and I needed to express myself.

“I want to use the track ‘Ikebe’ to make a statement and preach what I stand for, which is respecting women and their rights, after my wife and I welcomed our second child and first baby girl.

“I needed to use them to relaunch myself into the music world and I was inspired by three things.

“Going through life in the last three years, it has been full of God’s blessings because he restored me after the death of my son.

“People ask me how I deal with the pain of the loss and what was going through my mind and these tracks tell exactly how I dealt with it,” D’Banj said.
