Big Daddy/Papa Grande – Don Dada & Jah Fabio South Africa-Mexico collab

Menelik Nesta Gibbons aka DON DADA, a Humanitarian and owner of RuFF CuTT Studio who is also a multi platinum-selling South Africa based recording artist based in South Africa is in a new collaboration with Mexican Artiste JAH FABIO. They both officially released their highly anticipated Single, “BIG DADDY/PAPA GRANDE“ officially on June 11, 2021.

“BIG DADDY/PAPA GRANDE” is taking the saying “Artistes Unite” to another level as this single was produced during the COVID-19 lockdowns that have affected the globe and brought the traditional means of music creation to a halt for the time being.


Digital has become the best and in some cases, the only way out, and both artists made the best of what they had, with Don Dada working digitally with Nigerian producer ILLY. They used the power of the internet to connect with Jah Fabio all the way in Mexico, creating this collaborative effort that showcases the cultures of two distinct continents (Africa & North America) and combines English and Spanish over a distinctly Afro beat making this a beautiful and unique song with elements for any listener to enjoy.

Don Dada’s low voice is complimented by Jah Fabio’s higher tone which makes for a creative and dynamic song that will leave you wanting more. Ushering in a new age of Reggae/dancehall, BIG Daddy/Papi Grande is a refreshing take for both genres and can be considered a tone-setter and marker of the dynamic sounds coming out of Africa and Mexico currently and respectively.

The single track was made with a young audience in mind and as a result, possesses a huge potential to reach across different boundaries using Spanish and English as the medium of expression and using Afro Rhythms as the vehicle that drives the song forward.
