The song is a pop ballad that sends Christmas wishes to loved ones who are far away with the lyrics stirring up nostalgia from past Christmas memories.

Dakolo had earlier on Thursday hinted the collaboration with an Instagram post of him and Sande in a singing booth.

The picture was captioned, “It is true that music is the sound of our Emotions,I can’t wait to share this truth with you all.”


“Single out tomorrow: Merry Christmas Darling . Thank you @emelisande.”

Dakolo emerged winner of the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007.

He recently inked a deal with Virgin EMI, a UK based record label.
