The first time a friend asked if i knew Speed Darlington, i was not prepared for the eccentricity that was Speed Darlington. i finally decided to spare a few MB and see what the fuss was about, and boy was i shook.
In the light of Nigerians not recognising what they have, they had to see Diddy’s post of how Speedy inspires him to fully convince them. Mind you, this guy has been doing music since 2011 releasing ridiculous songs like “greatest tank battle”, “my party” “hustle hard”, and even had an epic twitter battle with Vic-o over who was the better singer(which he won) but still did not “blow”, so Diddy had to ‘intervene’ and help his blowing. And don’t forget the video from Kraks TV suggesting that we ‘dash’ speedy to the Ghanaians and get our Mr Eazi back. Who said it didn’t help his blowing?
Speed Darlington alludes to his sexual prowess with nicknames like scorpion king, energy god himself and energy master, and his love for the obscene with song titles like money and pussy, 50 inches or better. But one thing admirable about Speed Darlington is his passion , i mean the guy keeps dropping songs and does not give a hoot about people criticising his strange music. And you can say he started a new genre of music, hip-flop, with the likes of his bangdadadang and the more recent one from Roadman Shag, titled The ting goes Skrrrrr. I pray more artistes embrace this genre though, i mean who serious music epp? Leave serious music for the Grammy awards.
Also, it’s no news that speedy has a huge crush on Tonto Dike and even dedicated a freestyle he dropped recently, the effortless handwork was appreciated by the ever popular coquette, Tonto, with an awwww speedy baby reply. And the bangdadadang master has also invited rivals,Wizkid Dayo and Davido, to feature in the remix of his hit single, bangdadadang
Speed Darlington is enough reason that Nigerians, not minding their pretense and pitiable show of piety, love eccentric figures like Bobrisky and Speed Darlington. Their followers and subscribers on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube are enough proof. In one word, Nigerians love reality TV, and Reality TV stars. And Nigerians love him so much that some stars had to do a cover of his hit single, bangdadadang.
Nigerians and their love for professional mad people though.
