"Don't Dull" is a song by Nigerian singer Wizkid. Produced entirely by Samklef, the song was released as the third single from his debut studio album Superstar (2011). The song's production features talking drums and is infused with traditional Nigerian elements. A departure from Wizkid's teen heartthrob sound, "Don't Dull" showcases the singer's indigenous influences and street appeal.[2]
