Rotimikeys, one Nigeria’s most gifted music producers, released an Extended Play (EP) of covers titled Wild Colours in December. This EP features three of the biggest Naija hit tracks in the past few years: Dami Duro by David O, Ferrari by Yemi Alade and Oluwa Ni by Reekado Banks.

Rotimikeys brings his own distinctive sounds and brand of production prowess to play on these covers.
Dami Duro by Davido is given a live old-school funk makeover by the talented producer who also lends his vocals to the upbeat cover.
Yemi Alade’s Ferrari is delivered in cool R n B style with apparent vocal chemistry between him and the delectable Mama Africa.
His take on Reekado Banks’ Oluwa ni is an energetic, live instrumentation 90’s funk delivered with Naija-style inflections, this is one is my personal favourite.
According to him: “These songs are some of the hits that have shaped the Nigerian music scene in the past few years. Wild Colours is just my expression of these songs, just to showcase what goes on in my head,lol. Big shout out to David O, Yemi Alade and Reekado Banks for these hits”.
The tracks have received quite some airplay on major stations and great reviews…
He is set to release a couple of his own singles in 2017.
