Destiny Boy’s ‘IF’ cover is the most fuji thing you’ll see all day

Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of Fuji

Words by Ehimenim Agweh

Fuji is having a mainstream moment now thanks to Small Doctor and if you’ve never heard of Destiny Boy, then you’ve got to stop sleeping. The most Fuji thing you will see all day is his cover of Davido’s IF”.

And you thought Small Doctor was Fuji’s only shining star.

13 year old Destiny Boy gave his own contribution to the hit song with a Pasuma-style cover that would have sounded a lot better if his producer toned-down the screeching levels of auto-tune. Still, Destiny Boy’s innate gruffness and ability to hit high notes at unexpected moments are truly the brightest spots of the cover. His vocal dexterity is a marvel and the skill with which he maneuvers the highs and lows of “IF” are the stuff of talent. Although he delivers the song with a faster tempo and a party vibe, Destiny Boy’s cover is a jam and we can’t help dancing to it.
