The king of Afrobeat and the king of the Zanga were recently holed up in a studio together. The pair worked on Durella’s new song Back to sender.
Sources say Durella who had written the song about a month ago felt it needed someone other than himself on the track, he pitched the song to Femi Kuti who was at the time in Abuja and the saxophonist liked it.
The song which, according to Durella’s manager Milez sounds like ‘a typical Durella song’ was recorded, August 24, 2011 at Koga Studios, Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos.
Those present at the recording say Femi was happy to record the song and was heard to have said ‘It’s nice to do this, It has made me connect with the Nigerian youth again’.
Durella recently signed on with new record label Ikonic Music and plans to release his third album ‘Back, Better and Bada‘ mid September.
