THE REVIEW

LYRICALLY, it is really hard to identify the chorus, pre~chorus and the real verses in the song. But from the way it is written on our blog, I would say the song comes in two verses with a repitition of verse 1. While the chorus, prechorus and hook were done twice. The artiste sang mostly in pidgin, though one of the lines in the song, she sang in Yoruba “Shayo gallore, see, oju ti leri”. The only Yoruba word predominant in the song was “Shayo” which means “Consumption of Alcoholic drink”.

The lyrics are repetitive. Meanwhile, the line where the artiste said “If you want to touch my body oh…,
You gat to spend the money” makes it look like women are prostitutes, like their bodies are for sale, like they should be paid even after a sexual act with their spouse. Those words don’t speak good about women but rather demeans them and may encourage naive ones to see their bodies like something that is for sale.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In verse 1 “Hennessy for my cup…” the artiste talks about how much henessy she and her friends have consumed. It is making them go tipsy, this she reveals in this line “Shayo gallore, see, oju ti leri oh, yeh yeh”

It is also making them hot and naughty; perhaps sexually. This she reveals in this line “All of my girl dem bad, we go kill somebody oh, eh eh. Say the ginger go kill somebody oh”

When a lady is tagged “bad” it may mean “she is a sexually desirable lady or a supercunt” and guyz are drooling over her.

In verse 2, “Self pay, make the bottles pop oh; 50 more for the back up oh” the artiste lets us know it is a drinking party and non~drinkers are not allowed. She goes further to buy more drinks to show her self~worth and that she is self contained. She also tells those that lack finance but are in her party not to misbehave since they can’t spend.

“…If you no dey Shayo, make you comot oh; If you no get money, make you comport oh.”

The Pre-Chorus, “If you want to touch my body oh…, you gat to spend the money” is self explanatory already. The artiste says you need to spend money on her and buy a lot of booze to touch her body.

In the chorus “Wetin be that wey dey ginger the place? Shayo, Shayo…” the artiste reveals that it is basically a drinking party where they drink non stop. Shayo is what is keeping the place lively and all of them excited.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Oju ti leri~ Oju ti leri means the eyes are dim (not bright again), tipsy; blurring of the eye sight.

Ginger~ Ginger as a slang may mean to come alive, make lively, energetic, excite people, something that spurs people into actton.

Shayo~ Alcoholic breverages.

Vibe~ Song. It also means how one unwinds (either by relaxing or hanging out with friends) or enjoys his or herself

WHAT DOES TIWA’S VIBE BY TIWA SAVAGE MEAN

To know what the song means, we need to first know the meaning of “Vibe”. For the purpose of this song, vibe means to unwind;that is taking time out to hang out with friends or just enjoying oneself.

What then does the song “Tiwa’s Vibe” mean. It basically means how the artiste loves to unwind or have fun. From the video, it is glaring that her kind of fun is achieved with a session of drinking with her friends in the club, erotic dance moves, acting naughty, being extravagant and having sexual fun

SOUND
Tuneful!

LOCATION
It was shot indoor, a place that looks like a club

COSTUME
Their costume has sexual tone. They were clothed in tshirts which they folded into a crop top. They wore this with a pant. There were also some scenes where Tiwa Savage wore a short offshoulder gown, then in the last scene, she wore a bum short.

TIWA’S VIBE CONTROVERSY

Following the release of the song in may, Tiwa Savage posted on her istagram page that the song “Tiwa’s vibe has been banned from local stations by NBC because she mentioned alcohol which to her is legal in the country.

Her words “Because I said “Shayo, but alchohol is legal right”

So I am wondering if NBC removed the song from their blacklist before she decided to shoot the video…Any idea, kindly fill in the comment box.

VIDEO PRODUCTION
The video was shot using only females. The female dancers in the video were about ten which includes Tiwa. Their choreography and outifit had strong sexual tone.

A display of a lot of flashy images made the video colourful, especially where Tiwa and some other ladies were on those bottles.

JUST WONDERING

Is this all she got for her Vibe; drink, drink and nothing else, then I must say boring.

If that last scene was really necessary, because it really looked out of place. Seemed like she particularly wanted that scene and had no idea which of her music to attach it to…
