(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: I AM SUPERNATURAL BY FRANK EDWARDS “WHAT EXACTLY IS SUPERNATURAL ABOUT THIS VIDEO?

Here comes another spirit filling tune by Frank Edwards titled “I am supernatural”. The lyric to this song is meaningful, but can we say the same for the video? Find out in the review coming up right after the lyrics.

LYRICS TO THE SONG “I AM SUPERNATURAL” BY FRANK EDWARDS

VERSE 1
There is more to me when I pray. There is more to me when I work.
The lines are falling in pleasant places. I’m getting stronger every day. I do not know what it means to fail. From Glory to Glory is my Life.

CHORUS

Supernatural the things I do. Divinity is at work in me
By the Holy Ghost I’m unstoppable
I’m on fire. Yes, I’m number one Because I’m super super natural. Super super super super naturaaaaal

VERSE 2
I go by the name Seed of Abraham. AKA Limit breaker
Situations tremble whenever I show up. He lives in me. He lives in me. He lives in me
So I can climb any mountain. Do anything
Cause Jesus lives in me.

CHORUS
Supernaturaaaaal the things I do. Divinity is at work in me.
By the Holy Ghost I’m unstoppable I’m on fire. Yes, I’m number one Because I’m super super; Super super super super natural Because I’m super super; Super super super super natural Cause I’m super super; Super super super super natural Because I’m super super; Super super super super natural

Supernatural the things I do. Divinity is at work in me.
By the holy ghost I’m unstoppable.
I’m on fire. Yes, I’m number one

THE REVIEW
Lyrically, the song is meaningful. It comes in two short verses and each line flows well. No unnecessary repetition of words in the verses except in the case of the chorus where he stressed the word “Supernatural”

“Because I’m super super natural. Super super super super naturaaaaal”

Also, the lyrics are simple and are easy to remember. This would make a lot of his fans sing along when the song is being played rather than chew their mouth.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “I AM SUPERNATURAL” BY FRANK EDWARDS MEANS?
The word supernatural means the ability to do something extra-ordinary, something beyond human/scientific understanding, something unexplainable; it is basically the ability to do that which is humanly impossible.

The artiste refers to himself as a supernatural being which is evident in the title of the song “I am supernatural”.

This is also evident in the line “ Supernatural the things I do. Divinity is at work in me. By the Holy Ghost I’m unstoppable. I’m on fire. Yes, I’m number one. Because I’m super super natural. Super super super super naturaaaaal”

In essence, Frank Edwards sees himself as an extra~ordinary being “There is more to me when I pray…”

The reason the artiste may have referred to himself as a supernatural being is not far-fetched “The God we serve is Super-natural. We are created in his image and can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.”

VIDEO PRODUCTION
Very plain video. The video does not bring out the title of the song. No show of energy, nothing supernatural about the video.

We don’t see him do anything extra- ordinary like move mountains, bring down the heavens, shake the waters, heal the sick or show any supernatural skills. After all God is supernatural and some of the humanly impossible events recorded about him include- feeding of five thousand people, healing the man born blind and the woman with the issue of blood, turning water into wine and so many others.

Now, I was not expecting him to be or do exactly like God, but I felt the video deserved or required more than what Frank Edwards presented to his fans, it required more than him sitting on a a moving ferry boat.

I mean he sang it himself “There is more to me when I pray. There is more to me when I work”; but we don’t get to see the more in him.

He also said, “I go by the name Seed of Abraham. AKA Limit breaker. Situations tremble whenever I show up. He lives in me. He lives in me. He lives in me. So I can climb any mountain. Do anything cause Jesus lives in me”; still, nothing supernatural about the video.

If you ask me, there is really nothing supernatural about the video; very boring video.

Its only saving grace is the fact that the song is tuneful.

Gone are the days where musicians just stay in one spot with no interesting background while shooting video.

Even, his inability to make proper use of the guitar, made it look like a toy.

Also, he was not expressive enough when he was singing.

Lastly, a song with a title like his, would have been more interesting to watch if there was a story to the video.

LOCATION: The song was shot outdoor across the water. Frank Edwards was on a moving ferry boat all through the video.

SOUND: Quite tuneful, though he didn’t deliver the song with superb vocals as it sounded like auto-tune…
His vocal tone was not distinctive enough, at times the instrumental overshadowed his voice.

JUST WONDERING
Why he stuck to a ferry boat all through the song

REMARK: This is a good song performed poorly. I didnt feel his usual terrific vocals.

DURATION- 3 MINUTES 44 SECONDS

WHY NDI DAVIDO’S BABY MAMAS ARE BEEFING CHIOMA

Chioma Avril Rowland is the current girlfriend of one of Nigeria’s favourite musician- Davido. She is no doubt the rave of the moment as Davido has placed her on a pedestal; the Musician’s (Davido) fame, wealth and glory also covers her. The way Davido carries her matter personally and on social media has even made the name “Chioma” most searched for on google and more popular than our lovely actress “Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha” as the former’s name now pops out first before Chioma Chukwuka’s name. She has become a celebrity overnight.

Some of the notable public display of affection by Davido for her includes the purchase of 45 Million Naira Porsche  for her, there is also the millions of naira endorsement deal he got for her, the assurance video dedicated to her, Davido declaring Igbo tribe as the winning tribe for her sake and so on.

Chioma is obviously young and she is getting so much media attention which is not going down well with some people (ndi haters) as they have formulated stories and are still formulating stories to bring down her personality. Some of the unfounded stories on her include, she is a Babcock University dropout, she has slept with all the boys in Babcock University (I dey wonder how girls can still remain virgins if our boys are not virgins; besides even a blind, deaf and dumb person knows that Davido has stopped being a virgin years ago), she was disowned by her parents and so on.

WE PRESENT TO YOU THE FIVE KINDS OF PEOPLE THAT WOULD HAVE A BEEF WITH CHIOMA

  1. Davido’s Babymamas- The name of Chioma all over the media would definitely not put smiles in the faces of his babymamas, especially Sophia Momodu who keeps nagging all over the media, as he chose Chioma over them. I mean how do you explain this? After having wild sex with the ladies and leaving them with a beautiful hand bag, he doesn’t choose any of them. Also, he didn’t give any of them a gift, he only gifted them with a baby girl. But he gave Chioma 45 million naira Porsche. He didn’t sing using their name and he never announced them to the world like he did with Chioma. He didn’t feature any of them in his video but featured Chioma.  He didn’t get endorsement for his babymamas but got for Chioma. This and more would definitely make her an object of envy.
  2. Ladies that have stingy husbands- There are people that their husbands are real akagum; they are very stingy. Their husbands do not buy gifts for them at all. Their husbands do not appreciate them.  Ladies who have these kind of men as husbands would envy the way Chioma is being taken care of/appreciated by Davido.
  3. Chioma’s Peers-These people would not be happy about her success. In their mind “Imagine, and we are agemates oo” “How can she be shining and I am not, it seems like she is using charms” ; yimu yimu
  4. Single ladies- Those single ladies that are not in a relationship, never been loved and are now desperate for love.
  5. Classmates/Schoolmates/neighbours- Over familiarity dey worry these people “Is it not that Chioma our this and that, we used to see her now” Well, that was then. She is a celebrity now and you are not!
