David Meli and Buju are products of the Yoruba fueled Afropop scene. They both give off effortless charm on their songs, crafting lyrics and melody influenced by Yoruba slurs. DJ Sammie Iconic and Ayo Busari feature the two singers for their debut release, “Farabale”, a romantic ballad set to the breezy lightweight ambiance of the mid-tempo beat Mari produces.
While David Meli is loose and free-flowing, taking the first verse and the chorus, Buju’s verse is penetrating. The two pair their styles to sing the praise of their love interest on “Farabale”. Their charming lyrics, alternating between descriptions of their feelings and promises of the extent they’d go to prove their love, are convincing with the traditional influences reminiscent of simpler, more romantic times.
