“Dorime” is undoubtedly the vibe of the moment.
It can be heard in every club you go, whenever the bottles pop it’s accompanied by the pseudo-Latin chant.
Interimo Ayapare dorime
But have u ever wondered why it suddenly became so popular in Nigeria?
That’s because it was sampled in the very popular “Voice of the streets” by Nigerian rapper Olamide in his rising days. Undoubtedly one of the songs that put Badoo on the map.
But credit must be given to the mastermind and producer behind this track – Tyrone or (TATATATATYRONE) who was clearly 8 years ahead of us!
Grandeur triumph- Tyrone or TATATATATYRONE as the tag line he throws on songs he’s produced, produced the “Voice of the Street” and has delivered on various A-List songs over the years.
Although not very known by many, his work speaks volumes.
Well, we did some digging and he’s produced, “Local Rappers” by Olamide X Phyno, “Baba Hafusa” by Reminisce and has worked with other Nigerian artists including Tuface, Wande Coal, Rugged Man, Vector, MI Abaga, May D, Brymo, D’Prince, Skales, Goldie, Jahdiel, Solid Star and other popular Nigerian artists…
Word on the streets is that he originally produced “Durosoke” by Olamide. Wow!
What’s Tyrone up to these days?
The futuristic producer currently manages one of Nigeria’s foremost radio empires. Cool FM 96.9.
However, we still crave a taste of his magic finger and look forward to his return to making music … If he ever returns.
Latiremo, Dori me.
