MyMusic Throwback: Tongolo by Dbanj

MyMusic is taking you back to enjoy a blast from the past as we always do every Thursday. We hope you enjoyed ‘Lalale Friday’ by Wale Thompson last week but if you wish to have a ‘kokocious’ week like you did the previous week,  you should be listening to ‘Tongolo’  from the famous superstar, Dbanj.

 

The Koko master who has a first class Degree in womanology dropped ‘Tongolo’ in 2005. This single which was on the ‘No Long Thing’ album was what brought Dbanj to spotlight and ever since he has been a force to reckon with in the Nigerian music industry. Well, this may be because he knows the ‘koko’… I guess.

 

Not only was ‘Tongolo’ a danceable fine R ‘n’ B song, Nigerians enjoyed miming to this tune for a really long time, i admit, i was guilty of this. The harmonica which he played at the beginning of the music became a popular symbol that he was known with in his future songs. The harmonica i must confess was part of what brought ‘Tongolo’ to life.

 

Back then, Tongolo was an household anthem even though many of Dbanj fans were unsure of the meaning of the ‘Koko’, Tongolo was a fine tune to listen to then unlike the many songs making waves this days.

 

‘Tongolo’ which was produced by Donjazzy under Mo’Hit Records won many awards including the Best Newcomer Award at the Channel O Music Video Awards in 2006.

 

So let me ask you, do you want the Ko ko? I know you do, so just stealthily download ‘Tongolo’ and blast the rest of the week in a ‘kokocious’ way.

 

That’s our gift to you this week…Enjoy!
