As Afropop continues to grow its international acclaim, we can expect artists from different parts of the world to delve into the genre and perhaps infuse more languages like Chinese or French. Or at least that’s the conviction that drives from Nigerian UK based singer, David Meli’s latest single, “Bonjour”.
Over the Mari mid-tempo beat Mari produces splicing layered synth harmonies with drum riffs, David Meli performs a confident set, bragging about his growth and showing off his doubters; “Now The Blessing Done Dey Come Through/ They Always Say They Love You/ French Girls, They Are Telling Me Bonjour”. And given the song’s catchy melody and Afropop’s undoubted proficiency on dancefloors worldwide, his conviction isn’t just understandable, it’s contagious.
