Nigerian singer and songwriter, Ric Hassani is here again with a new single. After the release of Love You Anyway, he decided to give us an uptempo record titled, Do Like Say. The Afro-pop record features DBYZ and was produced by Deyasso. Below is the acoustic rendition of the song:

Positives

The feel-good song started with a guitar synth playing a sweet and distinct melody and we just knew this was going to be different from the conventional afro-pop record. The drum pattern also had a little dancehall feel it.
Everyone's vocal blended well. It sounded like Ric Hassani has been part of the DBYZ band before. They all sounded smooth and clear. Lyrically, the song was okay, as the song passed its message.

Negatives

There's something about this song that reminds us of Ed Sheeran's I Don't Care that features Justin Beiber. Its the melody of the chords and the drum pattern. The execution of the chorus of the song made it harder to not compare these two songs. Ric Hassani definitely took out of Ed Sheeran's handbook for this one.
