Johnny Drille, the Nigerian alternate singer, has dropped the visuals for ‘Loving is Hard’, a track off ‘Before We Fall Asleep’, his newly released debut album.


The video was released barely four days after the album was put out to raving reviews.

The less than four-minute music video opens with Drille in an agitating argument with his supposed lover on an abandoned train track.

The couple gesticulates with their pertinent frustrations captured in the deliciously mastered pictures until they both stormed off the opposite ways in anger.


Drille rules the screen from then on, singing his feelings into the air: “Oh my God, this my baby make me go manya/ Oh my Lord, oh my baby set me on fire/ I know my mama no like ya/ Oh my girl, no bother I like ya ba bad/ I go dey for you no matter the weather/ You’re full of sh*t, but I want you like that.”

Drille started his journey in the music scene when he featured as a contestant on the sixth season of Project Fame West Africa in 2013.

In 2015, he came through with a cover of ‘Awww’ by Dija, a Nigerian singer, who later became a label mate.


His unique sound caught the attention of Don Jazzy, CEO of Mavin Records, and he signed with the foremost record label in 2017.

The 31-year-old singer has since then released numerous singles that turned out to be successful with massive reception.

In 2019, he snagged ‘Best Alternative Song’ at the 2019 edition of The Headies.
