(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: MALO BY TIWA SAVAGE FT WIZKID AND SPELLS. (THIS VIDEO IS SO OUT OF PLACE!)


So, when I heard this song, I was expecting something far better than this for the video. Don’t get me wrong o, ain’t condemning the video outrightly, but that kind of video would have been perfect for a song titled “Stripper’s love, lusting after you, seduction, love in the club and its likes”

First of all, the word “Malo” is a Yoruba word in Nigeria and in English it means “Don’t go” or “Don’t leave me”. In essence, the song is about a guy telling a girl not to leave him because he is so much in love with her.


I just couldn’t relate the audio that has great lyrics with the video at all. Ahah, this is unlike Tiwa, afterall I watched- all over ‘which is far better,’ though I didn’t review it. There are lots of video concept Tiwa could have come up with for this song. I had to watch the video again, but this time at a slower paceto try and understand the video, but there was just nothing. The video just has too many people doing too many things at the same time in the video. There are those tattoing, gambling, smoking, drinking, the erotic dancers, Sexy tiwa, Hard Wizkid, those playing games, those skating; phew!
Also, Tiwa acting all through the video as if someone was using sugarcane on her …..- okay o- continue

Overall rating
Lovely costume for that kind of video that has to do with “lusting after you, in love with a stripper and so on”. But then, I think Tiwa was the only colourful person in the video, the lighting in the video was dim.

Just thinking
• The extreme sexy acts by music diva was not really necessary; we know already that she is sexy Tiwa. It was more like she was trying to impress someone.

• The couple in that ‘one corner net’ dancing in the lewd style; is that supposed to be a dance step or what? somehow sha


• The video is too busy, whose activity do we want to focus on.
• It is a love song! if this video is an explanation of what and how love is, then love is really terrifying!
• Reekado, you are sighted vlcsnap-2017-11-20-20h31m42s908
• Are thses ones the bodyguard or what? vlcsnap-2017-11-20-20h47m04s679

The video was directed by Meji Alabi
Duration: 3:03
Great audio, but the visual, is just not it!
