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..
