“‘Can’t Buy My Love’ is about being a strong woman who can’t be taken advantage of or bribed with gifts. My love cannot be bought. To me, there is much more to a relationship than being showered with presents, while your partner is not actually present.” – Dyo
‘Can’t Buy My Love’ finds Dyo making a definitive statement that there’s no way to gain her heart using money or materialism.
Apparently, a man has no chance with her if he doesn’t come with respect, first and foremost. Respect is something she values as priceless and not a name on a bag or a price on a tag.
Later, she admits that even if a man has her name scripted on the side of a jet, she still wouldn’t break her neck because her love isn’t for sale.
Dayo “Dyo” Olatunji’s name is relatively new. But, behind the scenes, she is well established as a multi-platinum selling songwriter who has been nominated for an Ivor Novello award.
Also, she has collaborated with SZA, Maroon 5, Fifth Harmony, and Jacob Banks. As well as penning chart-topping singles for homegrown icons Wiley and Chip.
Dyo’s “Can’t Buy My Love” single follows on the heels of her “Go All the Way” song featuring Mr Eazi.
