In an exclusive interview with us, Crayon explained that Ijo (Laba Laba) was inspired by a shoulder dance move he did in the music video for Overdose. “I went back to the studio and created a song for the dance which I titled Ijo(Laba Laba)Ijo is Yoruba for “dance” and laba laba means “butterfly”. The butterfly represents the shoulder movements and it also signifies happiness, bright colors, and forgetting about one’s sorrows.”

This strong contender for song of the summer is an Amapiano and Afropop earworm. It is guaranteed to get you in a good mood while dancing your worries away. The colorful video which was shot and directed by Nigerian music video director, TG Omori has a high school setting and had guest appearances from Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy, Magixx, Blaqbonez, Baby Fresh and Skibii.
