With influences ranging from Fela Kuti to Lagbaja, Wizkid, and Tiwa Savage, UK-based budding Nigerian superstar, Dolapo has built her own reputation as one of London’s most exciting breakout names since her standout hit Something New started making waves. Bringing a captivating Afrocentric flavor to the Afroswing originality of her sound, Dolapo marks her first release of 2021 with the hypnotic Interest, featuring UK contemporary, Ms. Banks and Nigerian rising star Oxlade. Dolapo continues to showcase the natural vocal ability and charisma that inspired critical acclaim from the likes of Notion, Trench, and Red Bull and on this new single, these features are prominent.
The confidence brimming potential ladies anthem employs the best of the trio’s individual strengths with Dolapo leading and at the same time shadowing, Oxlade whose delivery of a savvy verse serves as the perfect bridge to the numerous sweet parts of the single and Ms Banks, a punchline reservoir stirring the verses in the direction of its bass-driven instrumentals.
Speaking about the track, Dolapo said: Interest is a song for the Ladies, the IT girls. We know what we bring to the table and the ball is forever in our court. We’re only giving time and energy to a guy if he can match that. Until then, it’s all just fun and games”.
