Afro-folk artiste – Johnny Drille releases a timely single titled – ‘Papa’ – with its delicate piano chords, earnest lyrics and touching vocals, Papa is Johnny Drille’s most personal and emotionally driven song yet.

After I moved to another city I realized how much I wanted to be with family,” explains the Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer. “It’s been two years since I left home and Pa’s words still resonate in me, they keep me going. Fathers deserve more appreciation than they get.”
