”I am only in competition with myself”- R&B singer, Darey
By Patricia Uyeh
R & B Nigerian singer, Dare Art Alade, better known by his stage name, Darey, in a recent interview with Linda Ikeji Blog, spoke about the alleged rivalry between Timi dakolo and himself. He was quoted saying:
‘‘You can’t tell me people think there is some kind of rival. I speak for myself, over the years, I have been making my music and I have never been in any competition with anybody. I’m only in competition with myself. I try to improve on anything I have done before. I won’t say I am in competition with anybody and I don’t think anybody out there should think they are in competition with anybody else. Just do your own thing and make good music”
And on the possibility of collaborating with Timi Dakolo on a song, Darey said : ”We have not talked about it but who knows? I know I have spoken to Banky W about making music together. I think when the right time comes. We are all brothers. In fact, Banky is my cousin, so no problem. It’s really about the music. When the moment comes and the music is right, there could be collaboration. That would be nice. Maybe, me, Timi and others would join hands and do like a national anthem for the ladies”
When Darey was asked who is the King of Nigerian R&B, he said:
”I have no idea, I don’t know. First of all, how many people are even making RnB music? So, I don’t know”.
