MUSIC REVIEW: BLOW THE WHISTLE (NICE BEAT WITH SLEEPY LYRICS)


“BLOW THE WHISTLE, EVERYBODY MA NI OLE”
DJ CONSEQUENCE FT MAYORKUN
WITH SUCH CATCHY CHORUS, ONE WOULD HAVE EXPECTED THE VERSES OF THE SONG TO BE OFF THE HOOK.
YOU CAN VIEW THE LYRICS OF THE SONG HERE…

Verse 1
I go party, for Ikoyi eeh, amu donpy, eye don dirty eeh.
We catch this aunty, wey chop person money o.
L’ojo ti awi yi, oju mi rire.
Na so this brother, pointing me finger eeh.
Ase na brother Tunde, we scam my mama o.
Timba n’owo igbaju luyi, I fit light you cigar eeh.
No be say, mot i ri yin fin, you supposed to go sit down eeh.

Chorus
Blow the whistle, ole ma ni everybody.

Verse 2
Se ema mu coffee, abi hennessy eeh.
All this your boiling, e no be your money eeh.
Time go tell, I say time go tell.
We go hear am for radio, abi hotel
Na so this brother, pointing me finger eeh.
Ase na brother Tunde, we scam my mama o
Timba n’owo igbaju luyi, I fit light you cigar eeh
No be say, moti ri yin fin, you supposed to go sit down eeh.

Chorus
Blow the whistle, ole ma ni everybody. (till song fades away)

MAYORKUN DIDN’T EXPLORE THE CATCHY CHORUS AT ALL. THE BEAT IS NICE BUT THE VERSES ARE NICELY SLEEPY. ONE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT HE WOULD HAVE LINKED IT TO THE CURRENT HAPPENINGS IN NIGERIA ESPECIALLY IN THE POLITICAL SECTOR, OR LINKED IT TO THOSE THAT PRETEND TO BE EXTREMELY HOLY AND TRUTHFUL BUT ARE NOT. HE COULD HAVE EVEN COMPOSED A LINE FOR THOSE THAT LIKE TO DO EYE-SERVICE. IT SEEMED LIKE THE SINGER WAS JUST IN A HURRY TO RELEASE THAT SONG. HIS INTEREST WAS MORE IN THE CATCHY CHORUS THAN IN THE SLEEPY VERSES. A VERY SHORT SONG- JUST 2 MINUTES- 28 SECONDS.

BUT THEN I LOVE THE VISUALS. A UNIQUE CONCEPT WITH THE BEAUTIFUL LADIES ON ANKARA, WHICH TO ME IS A WAY OF PROMOTING OUR OWN FABRICS. VERY NICE!
