Johnny Drille ArtworkJohnny Drille is fast becoming a household name in the music industry in Nigeria and Africa in general, with an absolutely amazing voice, and his unique style of writing love songs with a blend of religious innuendo, one can not help but fall in love with Johnny’s music. The former ProjectFame contestant has over the years done covers that has Wowed fans and admires alike. His single ”Love Don’t Lie” was widely accepted and it is still gaining airplay across radio stations in Nigeria.

His latest single ”Wait For Me” is a song that talks about waiting for a loved one no matter how long it takes. It is difficult to wait no doubt, but when the one you are waiting for is tested and trusted, then it is worth the wait.

Johnny says ””As I stayed up all night in my bedroom studio listening to the finished ‘Wait For Me’, I soon realized it was my most emotional song yet. It meant much more to me, it was an experience. For those of us who have had to leave loved ones behind, not sure of what the future was going to bring, ‘Wait For Me’ tells that story.” #WaitForMe



I dunno when I’m coming back
I’ll be gone for a little while
But I will keep myself for me and you
I’ll be back for you
I dunno what the future brings
But I want you to be with me
I go dey hope and pray say make you wait for me
Cos I’ll come back for you

You hold my love
You are my prize
And I’ll run to the finish line
My love I no go leave you run
I no go bounce your call
You’ll be always on my mind
Yeah yeah

I’ll be so far away
Promise you’ll wait for me
I go think of you everyday
My love yeah yeah
I may not come today
But I’ll be wih you again
I go dey pray for you everyday
My love yeah yeah

As I’m leaving you behind
I’m gonna miss your smile
And the joy you bring to my wretched soul
Your love it makes me whole
This our love will never die
Darling promise you will be mine
You see I dey do this thing
For you and me
I’ll come back for you

You hold my love
You are my prize
And I’ll run to the finish line
My love I no go leave you run
I no go bounce your call
You’ll be always on my mind
Yeah yeah

My love

Cos i no dey by your side
Just wait a little while yeah
Know that I’m alright
And I’ll see you soon
Make you wait for me my dear
