Johnny Drille, the Nigerian singer and songwriter, has come through with his new single titled ‘Palava’.


The Mavin Records signee announced the release of the song via his social media pages.

In the less than four-minute track, Drille showcases his artistic versatility, going out of his comfort zone to deliver his rich lyrics.

His catchy lyrics blend perfectly with the instrumentals, making it easier to flow smoothly between his lines.


In ‘Palava’, Drille also samples Original Stereman’s 2005 hit song, ‘Sample Ekwe‘.

“Ten over ten I dey over calculate/ I dey pray and fast I dey meditate/ Another kasala every other day/ Coolu my temperature e don dey raise/ Rain on me/ Father in heaven have mercy on me/ Open heaven and rain on me/ Shame my enemies wey no believe/ Shadow me
Many thing wey my eye don see/ I cannot tell all the wolves from sheep/ Shame the enemies wey no believe,” he sings.

Born John Ighodaro, Drille joined Mavin Records in 2017 after his unique sound caught the attention of Don Jazzy, the music label boss.


Since then, he has released numerous singles that turned out to be successful.

He has also received several awards and recognition for his craft. In 2019, he won the ‘Best Alternative Song’ award at The Headies.
