Popular Nigerian artist Davido and Mayorkun of DMW has released the official video of “the Best”, one of Davido’s music in the album “A Better Time” with Mayorkun as the featuring artiste.
Davido took to his Instagram page and wrote, “The best they say is relative. They say you should all regard ourselves as “The Best” in order for us to believe sufficiently in ourselves. Others say you are arrogant when you proclaim yourself the best. While some of us are just happy to be able to produce some others “THE BEST”. Whichever way you look at it, you are looking at THE BEST!!! OBO x Of Laylay!! @iammayorkun @dammytwitch #ABT.”
“A better Time” album had several A-List players featured in different songs including Mayorkun.
The album shortly after release has the number one spot of several charts for weeks.
The video of “the Best” tells a story of a young man (Mayorkun) who stumbles upon a damsel while on a journey, on attempting to strike a conversation with her, was assaulted and beaten by her Shaolin guards.
He then goes to learn to fight so as to seek revenge.
Davido plays the role of his mentor as the young man goes to his Shaolin temple to learn to defend himself.
The music has the theme of a typical Japanese movie featuring celebrity artist like Wande Coal and directed by Dammy Twitch.
In the music, the music moguls tell the story of how Mayorkun learns from the Best “Davido” as it rhymes with the lyrics of the song. “I learnt from the best o, the best; David o, forget o. Mo bad. Forget now”.
