I’m really loving what we’re getting from Sir Dauda recently, the latest of which is Kalakuta. The song titled after Fela’s famous self-established republic is enchanting, tingling and a nice of alternative and afrobeat. The real afrobeat.
Sir Dauda has featured with a range of artist recently including Eva’s War Coming, Black Magic’s Rock Your Body, and most recently Aramide’s Funmi Lowo. Produced by Focus Ramon and off his debut EP slated for release later in the year, Kalakuta is a stirring, soulful call to arms.
“But we are the sons of He who cannot be named/A hunger for truth and a fire that cannot be tamed/We are the chosen ones, chosen to carry the truth/ We speak unspoken words, spoken to rally the troops”
With tunes like this, Sir Dauda is well on the way to being a force in his niche, and it won’t be ‘blowing’ up overnight. This is a kid we know has been putting in the work for some time now.
Peep the new joint. Sir Dauda Kalakuta! Enjoy.
