At the beginning of their mainstream takeover, D’banj was one of the earliest prominent Afropop acts to affiliate himself with the current wave of street-reliant Afropop artists, working with Mr Real and Slimcase for his early 2018 hit single “Issa Banger”. Moving along with the rollout for his upcoming album, the Entertainer has linked up again with Slimcase for the LP’s newly released second single, “Mo Cover Eh”, a week after dropping “Shy”.
Showcasing an apparent chemistry and respect between the pair, “Mo Cover Eh” is an infectious record doused in communal braggadocio shared amongst friends who know they are financially covered at any function. Over Cracker Mallo’s bombastic South African House production, accented by D’banj’s intermittent harmonica riffs, both artists perform a cocksure set of lyrics emboldened by vivid imagery, with the mixture of D’banj’s larger-than-life personality and Slimcase’s eccentricity making for a combustible collaboration.
Unlimited LA directs the music video for “Mo Cover Eh”, and his frenzied visuals captures the ebullience of the song. Set at a warehouse location, shots of D’banj and Slimcase energetically performing their lyrics in and around expensive cars and models, are mixed with those of dancers performing lively choreographed routines, highlighting its dancefloor ready traits as well.
