DMW’s latest team effort “Man Must Chop” sees label leader, Davido and Ichaba singing their appreciation of things life has to offer. Over beats produced by in-house producer, FreshVDM, the duo sing about the blessings that come with money, Ichaba longing for the material possessions that are often attached to living a lavish lifestyle in Nigeria —“make I live in banana Island like Adenuga”. Davido takes the backseat on “Man Must Chop”, providing only the chorus, a hook and off-topic lines about an unnamed woman and her body. While Ichaba sings lines encouraging listeners to do all they can —even illicit activities; “do the wire”— to earn that money, because “man must chop”, by any means necessary.
On the accompanying video for “Man Must Chop”, Ichaba and Davido surround themselves with the wealth they sing about, further illustrating what Ichaba explains is the benefit of the hustle. Director Q directs a video that follows the duo from a neon-lit parking lot, where they’re surrounded by models, to lively party scenes where they show off their fortune with champagne and wads if cash in hand.
