DARKOO FEATURING TION WAYNE – SHAYO: THE LONG-ANTICIPATED DYNAMITE FINALLY DROPS
‘Shayo’ is Nigerian slang for booze, its presence adds more fun and freedom to every gathering. Shayo by Darkoo is an infectious Afrobeats song that blends a captivating melody, contagious rhythms, and approachable lyrics.
It has taken Darkoo an absurdly long time to release this new single, and it is worth delving into the essence of the delay. The bare minimum we ever anticipated was having to wait well up to 11 months for the release of “Shayo,” which she shared a 30-second teaser of with Tion Wayne on her Instagram page. It must have been an inevitable situation marked by unforeseen events that led to this holdup, but on the flip side, it also appears Darkoo pulled a good one whetting people’s appetites for that long by asking, “How bad you want it?”
The grumblings that ensued for over 46 weeks demonstrated how much the song—yet another Tion Wayne collaboration in two years—was anticipated. This takes us back to Darkoo’s 2021 EP titled ‘2 in 1; which will make anyone who has experienced the magic she made on ‘Slow Down’ with Wayne ceaselessly crave for more and, as such, get frustrated when it’s taking eternity.
Darko finally eases the fuss with this afro-sensational anthem for premium enjoyment. ‘Shayo’ is Nigerian slang for booze, and its presence adds more fun and freedom to every gathering. Shayo is an infectious Afrobeats song that blends a captivating melody, contagious rhythms, and approachable lyrics. The celebration of life’s good times and other themes are explored in the song. Darkoo and Tion Wayne on this one were believed to be on a mission to hit the club scenes with this dynamite because the intensity of this groovy sound is so vivid.
