Teezee and Davido’s “BADI” is all you to hear need today
Teezee is on the cusp of an evolution in his music career. Earlier this year, the rapper officially began the rollout for what will eventually serve as his sophomore project with the release of the Maison2500 and New World Ray-assisted “GUALA.” Now, he’s is inching closer to its imminent release with melodies that are front and centre of everything he makes.

Over the past decade, Teezee has earned a growing reputation for his eclectic and vibrant knowledge of sonic influences with his day-one crew, DRB who’ve fed off the euphoric energy from their home city, Lagos. That multicultural influence is now palpable on his second release of the year, “BADI.”
Inspired by ’90s Nollywood films which Teezee was raised up on, the new Davido-assisted track is a catchy radio-ready number that finds the rapper exploring his love for women. Here, he trades his sharp, gritty raps for a more melodic tone, which provides the perfect backdrop for him to fire off his lyrics on love and affection for women. Singing “We go dey another dimension/Only you go get my attention, forget all the names in my mention,” he takes a rhythmically daring turn that’s now reaped great redwards–shit slaps.
Davido adds a layer of intrigue with a fire first verse followed by a catchy hook: “Badi, sun mo mi/Your Badi is all for me,” a detail so scripted it must have been divinely ordained. The danceable hit packs more in each verse as the song builds, a marker that hints at its ability to invite sing-alongs and TikTok challenges.
In just a few hours, Teezee will also release “BADI” the film, a Nollyesque production that promises to be a visual homage to the rapper’s love for films, pretty women and romance.
