Darkovibes’ new single, “Bangers” is an energetic song for your next turn up

The wholesome truth to all started from the bottom stories

Because it’s easy to appreciate things when you realize it could be worse, ‘started from the bottom’ stories are usually the best. For Darkovibes’ latest single, “Bangers”, he narrates his climb to success with energetic, a full-throttle flow that lifts his inspirational tale to eloquent heights.

Over the pacy synth-driven beat NOVA produces, Darkovibes brags about his acclaim, but the point is to highlight the rough patches on his path to success; “We Dey Pop Champagne Like Still Thirsty”. Even though like all ‘started from the bottom’ stories, he takes all the responsibility for his come-up—“Everything I Know, I Learnt With No Help”—he has the presence of mind to shout out his dad. His honesty at the risk of discrediting his hustle, however, makes his story more wholesome.
