Johnny Drille, alternative singer, has put out a new single which he says is to distract Nigerians from the frenzy of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
The song, entitled ‘Something Better’, was released on Thursday, just as the number of Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases had exceeded 60.
Produced by Sigag Lauren, ‘Something Better’ sees the unorthodox crooner serenade his lover, with the song’s artwork portraying the duo ardorned in old school fashion.
“I’m sorry I kept you waiting 6 months but I’m glad to put this out now that we all need some uplifting and something to distract us from all the madness,” he tweeted.

The 29-year-old singer, whose real name is John Ighodaro, began his musical career in church and was one of the contestants in the sixth season of Project Fame West Africa in 2013.
In 2015, he released a cover of Di’Ja’s track, which caught the attention of Don Jazzy, Mavin’s CEO.
His debut single ‘Wait for Me’ was released that same year and was nominated for ‘Best Alternative Song’ category of The Headies in 2016.
