Reekado Banks pledges unwavering love in 'Visa' |

Reekado Banks, a prominent Nigerian musician, has started the year with a new single, “Visa”. This marks his first musical offering for the year and sets a romantic tone for his audience.

The song goes deep into committed relationships, presenting Reekado in a new light. Through his lyrics, he portrays himself as a dedicated and passionate lover, ready to go to great lengths for the woman he adores. This theme resonates throughout the track, depicting unwavering devotion and affection.

In “Visa,” Reekado Banks uses vivid imagery and metaphors to express the depth of his feelings.

He makes grand promises to his love interest, vowing to fulfil her every wish and desire. These promises aren’t limited to simple, everyday gestures but extend to extravagant displays of affection that capture the imagination.

One of the most striking promises in the song is Reekado’s pledge to secure a visa for his beloved. This is a visa that would allow them to travel to any destination she dreams of visiting. The visa becomes a symbol of freedom, adventure, and the lengths he’s willing to go to make her happy.
