Dolapo ‘Dtone’ Martins is one of Nigerian music’s best kept secrets, and that’s not saying much: hearing is believing. After a four-year break, the underappreciated singer returns with covers of two chart-topping ballads— John Legend’s All Of Me and Sam Smith’s Stay With Me.
Staying as close to the original lyrics as possible, Dtone conveys the depth of emotion that define both songs in direct translations into near-flawless Yoruba while retaining the vocal styling he’s known for. The two tracks are gems for sure, but we’re partial to his version of Stay With Me. Listen and download below.
