I dnt understand why Darey Art-Alade shld be compared to Timi Dakolo....... From featuring establishd acts like 2face, El Dee, 9ice, still lacks direction. Somebody shld help me ask him if he listens to his music. I liked him as an O.A.P. with cool fm, but with music...........i thnk he berrra look for sometin else to do wit his family's fame........& if u share the same opinion with me.................HIT THE LIKE & SHARE BOTTON grin

The vid of wish me well.. Is the best vid a nigerian artiste has produced by my standards..

Melody of pray for me was so good i had to do a cover.. Got enlisted as the top ten finalist.. But was knocked out by some fantastic singers like temmie owvasa

Any artiste than can perform live is worth hearing..

true but sincerely the video didn't interpret the song.

No No No... That video version of darey is thrash. Abeg make e do d replica of that audio that he released earlier, by d way where's Soweto Choir in d video? I hope this is not d official video o.

Just heard Timi's song, very OK but was trying to relate the video with the lyrics, doesn't match. But very OK.

thank you, I thought I Am the only one who has observed the Timi's wish me well video did not interpreted the song at all.

Both songs are so very nice and there are lots of good vocal displays in them. I would love to choose them both but i will surely pick Darey's Pray for me.

Both are dope songs, delivery and content-wise. I'd pick Timi's Wish Me Well.

Look at the video again, just look...you'd understand.

P.S: Like someone opined earlier on, the Pray for Me by Darey video takes much shine off the song ala Godwin of Koredo Bello.

Darey's "Pray for me" anyday, anytime. He and the Soweto choir killed the song mehn. Was hooked from the first time I heard it.

I believe Darey can do part 2-10 of that song like R.Kelly did....I just wish he can continue the story till the guy gets a good job, married, have children etc after all his sufferings in the city.

Not as easy as you think, his doing sequels and stuff. They may just tank and ruin the beauty of the original song itself! Music is a dicey thing. R Kelly is just...blessed! That's how best I can express my opinion.

If these two songs aren't the best vocal performances in Nigeria right now, I don't know what other one is.  Both songs got executed with that perfectionist touch that'll make you wonder whether these two are actually from this planet.

This is battle for the Nigerian King of Soul. Going on the head-to-head level based on these two songs, these two are actually each other's competition even if it doesn't seem so at the moment.

These two songs have the same theme- going to the big life in the city. So it's in line that the Cobhams-produced WISH ME WELL erupts comparison with the two time Grammy award winning Soweto Choir-assisted "PRAY FOR ME"

Timi Dakolo had already showed us why he is Nigeria's King of Soul and Nigeria's finest tenor on his previous hits like "Iyawo Mi" and "Great Nation". So when legendary producer Cobhams Asuquo at his best, hooks up with Timi in fine Form, what we get is the beautiful hustler anthem "Wish me Well". This single off his forthcoming album, "Love and Consequences" is making the right waves and hit the right notes. I don't know if am delusional or this song actually deserves a Grammy award nomination.

However, the more recently released Darey's effort alongside Grammy winning South African group Soweto Choir titled "Pray for Me" is giving Timi Dakolo a run for his money and rightly so. The song centered around the same hustler theme is off his "Unclad" album. The mid tempo Afro-Soul shows off Darey's vocal strengths while also reminding us that as far as R&B goes in Nigeria, only a very scarce few do it as good as he does. The song tells a story, a story of a hero at that in a manner that evoke emotions.

These songs are both perfectly done and deserve any credit they get.

Gun to the head, if we are to pick one of this two.... It will be... BOTH!!!

So which one do you think is better

Seriously speaking, the two songs are bomb in ma ears. How wish our nowadays musician will learn how to balance their lyrics and make it meaningful like Darey en Timi did. Instead of all the yash, bombay whatever! NONSENSE!

Just has to be 'wish me well'.
