Fantastic songs wonderful vocals. These two are just great but if I must choose I did go for Darey's pray for me because of the indigenous language there. Timi vocal was best Tho but the introduction of the Yoruba dialect I can't ignore.

After reading this thread last night, I went to download the two songs, and they've both made me crazy! Like you said, Both songs got executed with that perfectionist touch.

Sorry it will be betrayal on my path to pick which one is the best gringrin they are both good!

I tell ya, pretty hard to choose. I heard Timi's first and I was like WOW! Why have I not heard this before? Dare's is equally good but something bout Timi's slays it for me time and time again.

I agree with you though; its very hard to choose.

Grandfather?

I don't mean to be cold and insensitive.. But just let him rest, do ur best.. Gather up funds and resources, improve urself and the quality of ur life with what u hv gathered so ur grandkids wouldn't seek for alms on NL in future

That was cold and insensitive; you should have just kept quiet. Shame on you!
Re: Timi Dakolo's Wish Me Well Vs Darey's Pray For Me: Which Do You Prefer? by ajf(m): 11:17am On Sep 17, 2015
The thing is Timi's 'wish me well' hooks you immediately after the first listen while Darey's 'pray for me' will keep growing on you as you continue to listen to it.
I heard both songs on the same day for the first time some weeks ago. That day, I preferred Timi's song. But today, I must confess, I'm beginning to like Darey's more.
In the end, both are great songs that I love so much.

I realli luv pray for me by darey. bt i think d turn off in d music is him addin yoruba which to me mks it local. it wud hv been better if d yoruba was substituted wit either spanish or french nd such wud hv made it nt only international bt also giv him so many international awards, and who knws,..mayb even a grammy nomination. dis is my personal opinion!

And somebody liked this rubbish?!

Hit "Like" if you think 'Wish me well ' by Timi Dakolo is better and "Share" if you think that 'Pray for me' by Darey is better

Re: Timi Dakolo's Wish Me Well Vs Darey's Pray For Me: Which Do You Prefer? by debbydee(f): 11:34am On Sep 17, 2015
Both songs are inspiring

Timi lyrics are kind of harsh eg i have bought a one way ticket i ma not coming back

Dare lyrics are soft eg Forgive me father i have to take a chance


my thoughts though

Timi Dakolo featured nobody, he did all by himself, but Darey didnt do Pray for me alone, he had to feature the award winning soweto mass choir... i will choose Timi Dakolo!!! but the song are both dope and tight....

2 great songs by 2 talented singers.

Timi has a slight edge in the area of vocal depth and range in my opinion.

Yeah right so did you post that rubbish before or after you quoted him? If you know its a scam, you should be zealous enough to delete it as opposed to answering anyhow.

Darey gentle intro yeen lasan....Both are ideal But i will listen to Pray for me first.
Re: Timi Dakolo's Wish Me Well Vs Darey's Pray For Me: Which Do You Prefer? by openmine(m): 1:18pm On Sep 17, 2015
both are lovely songs...its just that i was waiting for that "high pitch" towards the end by dare song and i didnt get it.. undecided

..unlike timi's "wish me well"...that high pitch towards "the end of the song" was the bomb...superb and splendid...i even had to crop dose parts as my ringtone...

So,without sentiments, i tink timi's song did a better job dan dat of dare's...though i love their type of music.... cool

@bolded...That will be unfair...i tink the addition of d yoruba flavor was brilliant and more african though it wud have made much sense if there was a subtitle undecided

How?

Timi's version came out before Darey's. Darey listened to Timi's and stole his concept. Darey will remain underated or at most king of karoake, Timi remains the real king of soul in Nigeria if not Africa
