Afrobeats superstar D’Banj aka Koko Master has released a fresh, new body of work titled “Stress Free”.
The much-anticipated album “Stress Free” features amazing production from the skilful music producer, Rexxie and presents D’Banj as a well-polished artist who is not only experimenting but having fun.
D”Banj had Seun Kuti(Egypt 80) on all tracks. According to him, “he went back to legacy”
On “Stress Free”, D’banj slips into Afrobeats innovation mode, visible in the multi-layered fusion of horns, saxophones and futuristic synths across tracks. The Egypt 80 brings the horns on the Afrobeat fusion, “Zombie”, and the Afro-meringue mix of “Welcome To Lagos” as well as the free-wheeling “Stress Free” and “Banga”.
“Ikebe”, meanwhile, is a gentle, uplifting prayer while “Big Vibe” incorporates the Amapiano sound into a pan-continental dance special and “Avocado” – featuring Burna Boy – leads you into a glorious sense of Afrobeats utopia.
The release will take place concurrently with a music video for the eponymous single, “Stress Free”, which brings to life D’Banj’s invitation to live on the lighter side by letting go of what you can’t control and taking care of what you can.
