Reekado Banks recycles some of your favourite Afropop hooks for “Like”

A new single from the Mavin starlet featuring Tiwa Savage

Somewhere between rehearsing to perform at The Wedding Party Premiere, and prepping to host a ThankYou concert in December, Reekado Banks released a new song called “Like” in celebration of his 24th Birthday on the 6th of December. Following in the footsteps of Falz’ [27], this track features Mavin’s first lady Tiwa Savage and Fiokee.

Because pop music relies on radio-programming to stick, the sound itself is occasionally set on repurposing familiar compositions. On “Like“, Reekado Banks lifts a couple vocal refrains from some of the biggest songs that have defined the year, beginning with Tekno’s “GO”, Wizkid’s “Manya”, Davido’s “FIA”, Tiwa Savage’s “Malo” and his very own “Easy (Jeje)”, to create something new. The sonic mixing of “Like” plays as you would expect to hear from a DJ or producer who’s perfected this craft. And if you’ve ever wondered what a Davido, Tekno, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage joint would sound like, then this birthday gift from Reekado Banks, is definitely for you.
