PRESIDENT BUHARI SIGNS A MULTI~MILLION NAIRA DEAL WITH NOLLYWOOD ACTOR~ WILLIAMS UCHEMBA

The president of Nigeria~ Muhammadu Buhari recently had a chat with Nollywood actor~ Williams Uchemba in NewYork. From all indications, it seems that the president plans on working with the fine~faced actor in the forthcoming election which would irrefutably see the actor smiling to the bank with millions of naira

After his meeting with the president, this was what the elated actor posted on his IG Page @williamsuchemba.

ADVERT REVIEW: MENTOS NOW MINT’S AIRPLANE ADVERT “CONCISE AND CLEAR!”

ADVERT REVIEW: MENTOS AIRPLANE “CONCISE AND CLEAR!”

Wow! Just 15 seconds, this must be the shortest television commercial I have ever viewed and reviewed on Ogefash Blog. It also has just one scene, it started and ended on the plane.

THE ADVERT

While on the plane, a lady sitting in thesame row with two others brings out her camera to view a collection of images just to keep herself occupied. A guy sitting beside her sees her pictures, admires them and tells her that he also has a collection of images but the lady is unable to reply him, because the old woman sitting beside her interrupted their conversation. The old woman also tells the young lady that she has a collection of images, as a matter of fact, she says has with her thousands of pictures of her grandchildren. In excitement, the old woman flips open her picture book containing her grandchildren and shows the lady and the guy. The young lady does nothing but smile. She afterwards brings out a bottle of Mentos, grabs one and throws into her mouth so as to have a fresh breath .

DIALOGUE IN THE ADVERT

(Be it your best case scenario)

MAN- Nice photo, I have a gallery

YOUNG LADY- (She says nothing but smiles)

GRANDMA- Photos! I have got thousands of my grandchildren. He is Johnny…

(Or your worst case scenario, with Mentos Now mint, you are ready for anything; who says no to mentos)

THE REVIEW

THE MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT

With Mentos Now Mint you need not fear conversing with other people (though the lady still didn’t reply any of them), because it keeps the breath fresh just like its slogan “Stay Fresh”. It comes in a handy bottle, so you need not worry about the weight in your bag or whereever you place the bottle. It also has great flavour that would definitely please your tongue; for freshening breath on the go.

THE REVIEW

I love this advert, concise and easy to understand “Stay Fresh with Mentos.” Even though it had only a scene, but the airplane stuff looked so real. There were other people in the plane aside the trio who were the major focus of the advert. Infact, some people were sleeping while others were discussing, typical of some people when they are on the plane. I could also hear the humming sound that accompanies a plane when it has taken off and it is in the air. That is originality

JUST WONDERING

  • After taking Mentos Now Mint, the lady still did not converse with any of them

MR.P DEFEATS OTHER TOP ARTISTES IN THIS INTERNATIONAL AWARD!

Mr. P aka Peter Okoye of Psquare recently clinched an international award. He was recognised internationally for his outstanding efforts in the music industry. The creativity, vigour and elecctrifying performances embedded in all his videos have won him the best International male artiste at the 2018 edition of the International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) in London.

It is his first award as a solo artiste. Mr.P defeated other top artistes like Davido, Diamond Platnumz to win the award.

After winning the award, he took to his IG account to thank his fans. View his message here…

“Team P this one is for Us! Thanks for the love and support. This is just the beginning. I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday. Thank you so much”

Meanwhile, his song Wokie Wokie ft Nyanda (from defunct Brick and lace) is currently topping Music charts in various countries.

Remember that Mr P and his twin brother~Rudeboy aka Paul Okoye of Psquare were both regarded as Psquare for close to two decades, before they quit the union and started their own solo career.

We wish Mr.P as well as Rudeboy the best in their Solo career.

(+LYRICS) ACTION BY DBANJ “DBANJ CAN’T AFFORD THIS ROLLS ROYCE GHOST, HE BORROWED IT!”

(+LYRICS) ACTION BY DBANJ “DBANJ CAN’T AFFORD THIS ROLLS ROYCE GHOST; FAKE LIFE!”

What! Like seriously, this is one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive music videos that I have seen in the country for year 2018. It is typical of Dbanj to always release videos that are of terrific standard not minding the finance it would gulp. And some ill wishers, bad belle people, unfriendly friends, friendly enemies would cross their legs, fold their arms and say “Dbanj can’t afford this Royce Rolls Ghost, he just went to borrow it since he doesn’t sing constantly like before; fake life.” Those people are myopic, the guy is made whether he sings or not.

Infact, before you google Rolls Royce Ghost, let me brief you on it. It is actually worth close to 150 million Naira if not more (Oops, did I exaggerate? It is sha expensive). Infact, after watching this video and researching about most items that I saw in the video including the Rolls Royce Ghost, I actually dreamt that I bought the vehicle and was also driving it; lol, aint joking though. You see what Action by Dbanj has caused now and probably for other people as well.

So, the main idea behind the song “Action”; Dbanj doesn’t need to keep reiterating what he intends to do, he just goes ahead to do it “Action”. Yeah, action speaks louder than words; “If you want to shoot, shoot, shoot don’t talk” you heard that- from the real action guy, The Koko Master, “Dbanj”. Feel the lyrics to the song below

LYRICS TO THE SONG “ACTION” BY DBANJ

INTRO

Pheelz Mr Producer, Banger-Lee, Nibo? Fi le, ehh

DURATION: 2MINUTES 55 SECONDS

PRODUCER: Pheelz

THE REVIEW

Okay, the song “Action” by Dbanj is another not too lengthy Nigerian song, it lasted for 2 minutes 55 seconds.

Yemi Alade’s song titled “Issokay” so far is the shortest Nigerian song with the duration of 2 minutes 30 seconds. (Issokay has been reviewed also on Ogefash blog; view here- www.ogefash.reviews)

Moving on, so, true to the title of the song “Action”; the video was more of “action” than words. The artiste showcased posh images in terms of cars, cuisine, places which indeed complemented the track.

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. Like seriously, the two verses are so brief. The Verse one has four lines while the Verse two has three lines but was repeated making it 6 lines in totality. He sang the chorus three times. Lyrically, the song is original. He sang both in English and Yoruba.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Intro, “Owo ye ‘n mi mi. Ehn (The money is making me tremble)”, the artiste said the plenty money he has makes him shake or tremble. He further said he doesn’t need to explain how wealthy he is to people because rich people do not talk too much, all they do is just use their wealth to enjoy life; more action less words.

In the chorus, the artiste said he is a man of action rather than words. He is quick to move and doesn’t waste time. “If you wanna shoot, shoot, shoot, don’t talk” In essence, he also believes that people should just go ahead and do what they intend doing without delay rather than saying it repeatedly and end up not doing it.

In the verse 1, “I’m living La Vida Loca- eh. Dem know I’m a Don, I’m a Soldier- eh’’ the artiste said he is assiduous and he is the boss. He is living the kind of life he wants. His assiduousness and God has fetched him plenty money to which he is able to live a large life. He further said his money is excess and he can never be caught unprepared for whatever that comes his way financially, materially and so on. This is because his money keeps increasing

In the verse 2, “Everytime when I come through, it’s a bang bang bang”, the artiste said everything about him is a great hit, excellent and superior; his music show, money and girls around him are proofs.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “ACTION” BY DBANJ MEAN

The artiste basically reinforced the popular word, “action speaks louder than words”. In essence, what people do matters a lot more than what they say they will do.

That is, you can keep saying you want to buy Rolls Royce Ghost but don’t make a move. So, until you buy it, then you are just a person of “words” than “action”.

So whatever you wanna do, just do, don’t be loquacious.

Hence, the song “Action” by Dbanj enjoined people to make a move or act their words rather than repeating what they intend to do and end up not doing it.

In the song, Dbanj shows that he is a man of action, he acquires the things he wants and goes to places he likes, rather than say his intentions and end up not doing them.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

OFF GUARD– Unprepared, unexpected

SHOOT– Shoot here means to start, to speak- to move or act quickly or suddenly

SALEYE– Explain; OLOWO– Wealthy people; JAIYE– Enjoy life/world

COSTUME: Still thinking

LOCATION:

Shot both outdoor and indoor in Dubai. It was shot in Deira, Sharjah, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Deira is the third largest city in the United Arab Emirates.

Dbanj and his crew also used one of the malls in Dubai, they purchased clothes in Promod, one of the cloth stores in the mall.

VIDEO PRODUCTION:

Terrific! Everything about the video shows affluence which complements the message of the track. The expensive cars, cuisine and resort. Great lightning; quality video.

From research, Rolls Royce Ghost is a British full size luxury car, a wholly owned subsidiary of BMW. It costs about 3,900 dollars to maintain it annually and 650 dollars to change the oil; so what are you saying bad belle…

SOUND- Interesting to the ears. He was consistent with the flow of the rhythm. His lyrics also flowed well with the beat.

JUST WONDERING

Who is Urban? Happy birthday Urban

This shot, somehow though…

I just kept on watching this “Motigbana” video by Olamide, I don’t know why sha. Perhaps, it was because of the styles those ladies sewed with their fabrics or the way they danced in an erotic manner in the video; I guess it is the latter.

Moving on, the first part of his Chorus “Motigbana o, mo ti elevate, eh eh (I am on fire, I have elevated eh eh) Ori mi ko le hibernate, eh eh (My head cannot hibernate, eh eh)” looked nontoxic; if you know what I mean. The first part of the chorus means that “Olamide is on fire and can never be inactive. No matter what ill wishers do or say, they will only choke because he is on fire. He is wealthy, he has enough money and cars that will make people exclaim Ye”

Then the second part of the chorus plus the two verses do not look nontoxic, “Moti Moti Motigbana yeh (I’m on, I’m on, I am on fire o ye)Na o, na o, na o bae, Na o, na o, na o bae (fire o, fire o, fire o (ye), fire fire fire fire)” It is more like; (Sorry, I need to clear my throat first) he is charged up for sex for his bae, as in powered to the maximum for sex or energetic for sex, even his body gestures made it look so.


Every scene of the video looks to me like “Olamide and others ti gba ina fun sex”; like they have gotten more energy for sex. There is no way after viewing this video of about 4 minutes 1 second and you won’t be able to tell what Olamide has “gba ina” for, or better still what he is on fire for. Well, feel the lyrics first…

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses that are lengthy and two choruses that are lengthy as well. Though the artiste tried to play safe with the words he used, one can still tell that the song still has some sexual tones.

VIEW SOME HERE

“Your bumbum bigger than Bombay (ye). Put it on me, omo ma lo sun (ye) (Put it on me, baby don’t dull)”
“O gbe soke (ye) o ni ki n ponke (ye) (She put it up Ye, she said I should climb up, Ye). O de n’ bere l’owo mi se mo wa okay yeh (And she’s asking me if am okay, Ye)”

“Abebe ni e, if you’ not a fan yeh (You are a hand fan, if you’ not a fan, Ye)”

“Biti Enimoney, mo fe DJ (ye) (Like Enimoney, I want to DJ, Ye)
Mo fe freaky-freaky-woh, mo fe replay (ye) (I want to freaky-freaky-enter, I want to replay, Ye)”

The artiste sang mostly in Yoruba but fused it with English and pidgin. Most of the lines in the verses are not interrelated but can still be connected to the song in entirety.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus, “Motigbana o, mo ti elevate, eh eh (I am on fire, I have elevated eh eh)
Ori “ the artiste said he is already so charged up, full of fire or better still, he is energetic and he can never be on hold or go on the sleep mode or be idle or inactive or lack music ideas ever. Even if his ill wishers are not happy about his progress, his enormous wealth would only make them suffocate. The artiste also said he is wealthy and he is always enjoying because he can afford it. He said when people see what he possesses, they would exclaim “Ye”

In the verse 1, “I’m the man, am the one they call ‘The Biggie Man’ (ye)” Olamide showed off his wealth to all , especially to the ladies “Owo po gan ni nu bullion van” The artiste said he is a big man and can afford anything, even the Gucci shoes that ladies crave for. He said there is a lady with a big bum that he wants to have. He further said the lady should move close to him and show her sexual prowess without wasting time, rather than stare like one who is yet to be paid salary for the month or worse still, end up like those ladies who ought to be in a man’s house but are still living with their parents. He even said he wants to sleep with her over and over again. “Biti Enimoney, mo fe DJ (ye) (Like Enimoney, I want to DJ, Ye). Mo fe freaky-freaky-woh, mo fe replay (ye) (I want to freaky-freaky-enter, I want to replay, Ye)”
In the verse 2, “E ni sun, emi pepe su (ye) (you won’t sleep, me! pepe su, Ye)”
the artiste reinforced his capability in all ways. He said he is worldwide. He also said no matter how hard people try to bring him down or make him exhausted, they can’t succeed because he is on fire. Like one of the Nigerian actresses- Genevieve Nnaji, he said doesn’t have time for anybody’s nonsense, because, money is more important to him than anything people say about him. He also talked about someone that has had a sexual feel and someone that is high on cocaine.

WHAT DOES THE SONG MEAN

The word “Motigbaina” is no doubt a Yoruba word used in Nigeria. It is an abbreviation from the word “Emi ti gba ina” which means “I have collected fire.” Or “I am on fire.”

Yes we know, Olamide is the boss and a large percentage of his songs are always hitz; hence, he is truly on fire.

Moving on, the song “Motigbana” basically talks about how hot the most sought after rapper in the country is, which has brought tremendous wealth his way.

However, having watched the video of the song severally, I can categorically say that the song “Motigbaina” by Olamide doesn’t only talk about the former but also about being charged up for sex; may be being better sexually. The following scenes and lyrics are proofs.

SCENES AND LYRICS THAT SHOW THE ARTIST WAS TALKING ABOUT SEX

Watch the 29 seconds of the video, 32 seconds (When the lady bent down and the guy bent down to look at her arse. He did not only concentrate on her arse, but ended up snapping it too @ the 1minute 14 seconds of the video.

54 seconds (When Olamide said, oya baby rotate bi ti ceiling fan)

1minute 7seconds (Bi eja osan I want to fish you); 1minute 10 seconds (Ko de ni da bi ti bus make I miss you); Olamide actually pointed to the girl’s arse.

1minute 16 seconds (Bi ti Enimoney, mo fe replay); The dark scenes. Where he said “Put it on me omo ma lo sun”

In the 2minutes 2 seconds of the video, where he kept saying mo ti gba ina and was using his hand to demonstrate, hmmm

2 minutes 58 seconds of the video ( The camera concentrated on the arse of a girl)

From the three minutes downwards of the video, all images were suggestive.

Also, the following lyrics are suggestive

O gbe soke (ye) o ni ki n ponke (ye) (She put it up Ye, she said I should climb up, Ye)
O de n bere l’owo mi se mo wa okay yeh (And she’s asking me if am okay, Ye)
O ti j’oja, o ti wa n ke (She’s eaten the market, she’s now crying (misbehaving)
Se powder niye n’imu e ni tabi Cocaine? Eh- yeh (Is that some powder in your nose or cocaine?)

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Elevate– To go higher, to raise, promote; Jollification– Merry making, Celebration

Hibernate- To be on hold for a while, sleep mode, holdback; Replay– Do over, play again

Suffocate– Die from insufficient oxygen supply into the body, choke

Cuddle– An affectionate embrace, to cradle; Drain– Exhaust, use up

Motigbaina– I have received fire or I am on fire

COSTUME:

I really don’t know how to define their costume, I really do not know what to make out of it, but it is quite hilarious to me anyway. May be I should call their costume “Motigbana Costume”. Any idea, please fill in the comment box

But just to say something about the costume, Olamide and the other guys wore casuals, they were mostly on jeans and T-shirts. The ladies wore socks both in their hands and legs, tube tops, bum shorts, short tops, a short and long trouser. They also wore Ankara print; the Ankara is beautiful, nice choice whoever costumed them. The style however, I reserve my comment.

SOUND:

Original beat, something different from the usual kind of beats we hear everyday. It had a bit of the swon and galala flow. His vocals flowed well with the rhythm of the song. Despite how lengthy the verses and choruses were, he was consistent with the style of rhythm. I loved the combination of various instruments used in the song and at some point the beat changed; it was not just one beat. The instruments complemented his vocals well. The drum beat also enhanced the rhythm.

LOCATION:

Shot both indoor and outdoor. Ninety percent was done outdoor, on the street, where the ladies displayed their bum skills, sorry dance skills.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Some kind of ghetto form, but I love the fact that those ladies were actually sewing their own clothes; it is again something different from other videos we watch. The colourful costumes made the video catchy. Some part of the video lightning was dim however; not referring to the dark scenes. Does the video complement the track? It is quite hard to say. He talked about his wealth, but there was no scene that displayed his wealth in the video, but in terms of ladies and being energetic sexually, well, it certainly complemented the track.

I JUST LOVE THIS MUSCULAR GUY’S MOVES

13 seconds, 22, 30, 43, 1 minute 2 seconds,

Lovely dance– 18 seconds, 40 (I love that girl’s swon)

JUST WONDERING

Non for now

REMARK: Interesting tune, terrific instruments, humorous costume, humorous dance, erotic dance; interesting to watch though..
