I’m sooo sorry this is late……It’s been crazy, you know the story…thanks for all the comments and well wishes.....
Anyway, I’ll make up for it!

Dare Art-Alade is a Nigerian musician and former radio personality. He was a contestant on MNet’s Project Fame a couple of years ago and did pretty well. Anyway, Dare has finally released his debut CD – “From Me 2 U” and in my opinion, its hot! People have been complaining that the CD doesn’t sound ‘naija enough’. I personally disagree, I think he fused different sounds to come up with something unique…..Anyway, here are some samples so u can judge for yourself….

Fuji - Download Audio View Video
Original Naija - Big Brother Nigeria theme song – View Video
Escalade - View Video
* Bonus - Storm Records All Stars (Nkiru, Dare, Jazzman Olofin, Sasha, G.T (The Guitarman)
– Eko Ile – Download Audio (Snippet) View Video

I know a lot of ladies quite fancy Dare so I have to let you know that Dare is allegedly engaged. If you are feeling a lil’ sad bout this news here is a highly unattractive PIC of Dare to help you snap out of it….lol
Anyway, Buy this CD! I wish him the best of luck!

You can read an excellent review of Dare’s album on Trae’s blog
