(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW- FEVER BY WIZKID “OMASHE!WHAT A WASTE OF…”

“Uuh, uuh, uuh uuh uuh, Starboy dey for you…Baby girl you fine you set oh, girl you make my eye dey red oh
Anytime you no dey close to me yeah yeah yeah ehh…”

This #Wizkid’s song ehn, I am always happy whenever I hear it on radio stations. I am always quick to jump on the song, but I noticed that I have never, as in never listened to it from beginning to the end when it is playing on radio.

After the first verse, I get really bored of listening to the song, I actually forget that the song is playing. It really doesn’t command my undivided attention; in essence, my attention is always divided before the ending of the song. However, when the video popped up on our catalogue as one of the songs to be reviewed, I just had to force myself to listen to the end.

Ndi Sweety Pies nkem (My Sweety Pies that love Wizkid) and ndi nke Wizkid aka #Starboy (And Wizkid’s Sweety Pies), no vex o, and if u want to vex, just vex small and then take a chilled drink to cool down.

In all honesty, the song is just too one~directional. As in the same style all through. He did not even try to raise the tempo or pitch accent, everything was flat.

Instead of him to now remix the song with our Mama Jam Jam aka Wizkid’s sugar mummy, I mean Wizkid’s aunty, no jare, I mean Wizkid’s girlfriend, I mean sexual partner, no business partner, I mean#Tiwa Savage biko, he now decided to use her as bed~vixen, oh sorry, video vixen. Omashe O! What a waste of talent.

Okay O, that’s by the way, kindly take a gander at the lyrics

THE REVIEW

This is one song that I love the intro; so atmospheric. This is actually the first time a Nigerian musician is controlling the speed boat (I hope that is what they call it); that’s sexy. Whether it is film trick or not, I don’t care, but I saw #Starboy driving it. I mean, other musicians who make use of the speed boat in their videos, only relax or flirt with some girls or they just spread their arms like they want to fly, or better still preparing for rapture while someone else controls it.

Lyrically, the song is meaningful. It has two verses, although, the first verse was repeated. The bridge was taken four times, the Chorus twice and the Post Chorus thrice. The lines are interrelated. The lyric flows well with the beat of the song. There are four lines in each verse.

He sang mostly in Pidgin.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the succinct bridge, “Uuh uuh uuuh, yeah yeah, Starboy dey for you” Wizkid aka Starboy announces his constant availability for his babe in the song. That line basically shows that he would be there for his babe all the time.

In the chorus “Baby girl you fine you set oh, girl you make my eye dey red oh” Wizkid says his babe has outstanding features that makes her perfect and makes him yearn for/desire her. He also says anytime she is not around him he has red eye. Red eye in the context of this song is used to emphasize the effect her absence has on him or the ache/torment/distress/ailment/disorder he suffers when she is not around him.

He also says how much he desire her and hopes she also desires him the same way. He wishes that they should be entwined forever.

In the post chorus “Walincha oh say walincha” he expresses his undying love for her. He shows how much his babe is worthy of all his adoration and calls her pet names such as “Walincha” and “Wayoncha”. The words were abbreviated from the Igbo word “Nwanyi omalicha” and “Nwanyi ocha”. It is similar to the word “Omalicha” which means a beautiful person. Hence, he calls his babe “beautiful” and assures her that she is the only one that can satisfy his desires for her.

In the verse 1, “Everywhere I go baby gal you go be my handbag (u go be my handbag)” apparently the artiste intends saying “Everywhere you go, baby girl, I go be your handbag”

From the above, one can tell that the artiste never wants his babe out of his sight. He therefore uses the word “Handbag” to describe and emphasize how close he wants to be to her. He wants them closer than before as against the time she was always standing far. I mean if both men and women, especially women can’t do without moving around with a hand bag, then you really understand how much he wants her around him.

Also, mesmerized by the embodiment of beauty, he pleads with her not to whine again but stand still. He also assures her that she is the only babe that occupies his mind.

In the verse 2, “This kind love wey I get e no koni oh,” the artiste says the love he has for her is genuine and that it is not an act of deception. He hopes to get high with her all day. He also says the mood/manner in which she leaves him is unfair to him or makes him long for her.

WHAT IS THE SONG “FEVER” BY WIZKID ABOUT

To know what the song “fever” is about, let us first of all define what fever is. According to Wikipedia, Fever is an abnormally high body temperature, usually accompanied by shivering, headache, and in severe instances, delirium.

In the context of this song, the artiste uses the word Fever to describe the bad condition he is in whenever his babe leaves him or anytime she is far away from him or anytime she is not around him. And in reacting to her absence, the artiste says his eyes always go red.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Stand far– To be distant in space.

Fit– Suitable, proper, good looking, fanciable, attractive, beautiful, to conform to in size and shape, to adjust etc

Quench– To put out, put an end to or to satisfy.

Desire- To want something strongly or wishing for something to happen.

Nwanyi oma – Beautiful woman

Omalicha Nwa- Beautiful woman

Nwanyi ocha~Fair lady

Nwanyi~Woman

COSTUME

I am so loving Wizkid’s Ankara print. Generally, their costumes complement the video.

SOUND

Great beat! The drums enhanced the beauty of the song. He was consistent with the style of rhythm. His lyrics flowed well with the beat. The “Dun-dun dun-dun dun-dun uuh uuh uuh” he added to the song made it more melodious.

However, he was not really expressive with his vocals, except for few scenes he and Tiwa Savage appeared; as in he didn’t put real emotions in his voice.

Also, the song is too one directional, the tempo or pitch should have been raised; it was too flat.

LOCATION

Shot outdoor and indoor; they used a resort. Lovely!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Terrific video concept. Nice shot! They were really soulful!

But biko, wetin come be people problem na, dem no kiss na. Is it the cuddling? Or gini? Infact, Wizkid was trying to be extremely careful, he did not touch Tiwa Savage’s sensitive part. Though, he caressed her hips sha.

Ehen, that reminds me, that Wizkid and Tiwa’s look/stare all through the video was more like “We dare you all to run your mouth, no be today!”

JUST WONDERING

Hmm, this their art work on the wall…

(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- ABLE GOD “ HELP! MY STOP BUTTON HAS AUTOMATICALLY STOPPED WORKING!”

(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- ABLE GOD “ MY STOP BUTTON HAS AUTOMATICALLY STOPPED WORKING!”

I don’t know what is happening to me o, I don’t why I just can’t stop playing this song. The kind of urge I always have to play this song can be likened to the kind of urge a new born baby has for breast milk; ain’t kidding. In essence, I too love this gbedu; everything “di” on point!

Every time I listen to this “Able God” on radio stations, I always wish for an immediate replay, but it doesn’t happen, although they play it more than three times in a day on that particular radio station. The only time I get a replay is when I click the play button on my player and put it on “repeat”. Now, the “stop” button has automatically stopped functioning. Winks!

Remember the popular Biblical word, “I was glad when they said let us go to the house of the lord?” I was happy when I learnt the video was finally out. So I quickly jumped on the song. My hands were itching to pen down stuffs on this melodious song. As in, I was so eager to review this song. Kindly take a gander at the lyrics below…

THE DRAMA

Elder- Children of God, you will now stand up and help me shout 500 halleluiah

Pastor- Baba baba, go straight to the point, go straight to the point.

Elder– Okay, good, thank you very much. You see, one day, I now wake up, as I woke up, I enter one bus going to Oshodi

Bro Lively– Even wall of Jericho is seven halleluiahs they cried before the wall fell.

Pastor– Baba, go straight to the point

Elder– Thank you, that is the point that I am going to

Bro Lively– Shebi you will chase him away if you don’t have testimony to give, you chase him, shebi you will chase him…

Elder– Brother Lively, the devil will use you o, don’t let the devil to use you o

Bro Lively– Which devil is using you?

Pastor– Baba, do your testimony once and for all

Bro Lively– I don’t know which testimony he is doing, when he already has old age, old hair, gray hair, there is no way you will not have accident the way you are going going going

THE REVIEW

Thanks to “Mami” @Mrs. Maria aka MAONE and Sister @Mrs.Ayeni who also helped out in the translation.

No doubt, I love this song! I just screeched it, not a whisper. Dope x3. Everything about it is; from the beginning to the end, although, the drama has got some flaws. Apparently, it intended to make people laugh, well, I don’t know if that did make people laugh sha.

So did it make me laugh? At some point it did, but when the young dude- Brother Lively now said “There is no way you won’t have an accident with the way you are going going going” I was like ehen, accident ke in the house of the lord? Wetin concern accident with “Baba agbalagba” wey talk say e wan give testimony make them shout 500 Halleluiahs; although the man actually lacked idea about what to testify about. The brother Lively self was even rude. He later walked out of the church.

Moving on

Lyrically, the song started with an Intro/Bridge–Chorus-Post Chorus-Verse One– Chorus-Post Chorus-Verse Two– Chorus-Post Chorus-Verse 3- Chorus-Post Chorus-Outro/Bridge.

Able God is a really well composed song, from the intro to the chorus, post-chorus, verses and then to the outro. Well arranged and easy to comprehend too. The song has a very catchy intro- lyrically and sounds wise. Kicking off with the chorus really made the song interesting to the ears. There is no how the song would come on air and people won’t give it 100 percent undivided attention of people. The intro alone already set the mood of the song and put people in the dancing mood. The choir comprise 8 singers (Two females and 6 males; Chinko Ekun is one of them). The song has three verses taken by Chinko Ekun, Lil Kesh and Zlatan Ibile respectively. The choruses and post choruses were done four times while the bridge was done two times.

The lyric is meaningful, uplifting, interesting, and original. The lyrics flows well with the beat. This is one song that is 90% Yoruba, the only place where they sang in complete English was the Chorus. The trio sang the chorus, Zlatan Ibile and Lil Kesh sang the post chorus while Chinko Ekun alone sang the bridge.

Zlatan Ibile’s verse was the best. Also, his body movements made the video funny and interesting to watch.

BREAK DOWN OF THE SONG

In the intro/bridge, “Angeli t’on pin ire, jor ma lo sun, jor ma lo sun, jor ma lo sun (The angel that shares blessings, please don’t sleep, please don’t sleep, please don’t sleep)”, the artiste (Chinko Ekun) pleads with the angels of God that are in charge of sharing good things/blessing not to sleep but be awake concerning his matter, and bless him also.

In the Chorus, “So, able God (Able God, ah!) Shower your blessings”, the artistes (Chinko Ekun, Lil Kesh, Dzatan Ibile) plead with God to send abundance of good things to them. The good thing they want in particular is money so that they can use it to buy Bentley; a very expensive vehicle.

In the post chorus, “No more insufficient fund”, the artistes say they are no longer among those that are unable to get what they want as a result of having inadequate money. They said they have worked hard, received blessings for their hard work and constantly exchange dollars with the Abokis or bureau the exchange

In the verse 1, “Eruku nla nla (A lot of smoke), No more insufficient fund” Chinko Ekun says he is surrounded with fire. He says he has heard the glorious word of God, prayed, fasted and hustled. He is optimistic that he will breakthrough in his music career. He prays never to see devil or wicked person as he progresses in his career.

He says he is not lacking money and can never lack money as alert keeps entering every now and then. He says with his money, he is now the chairperson at occasions (that is, he is highly respected), he can take his friends to different countries to have fun or for facials

“K’a ma ri esu t’o wo canvas” may mean that may we not see enemies that will do their possible best to bring us down or enemies that are bent on ruining our lives.

In the Verse 2, “Ah, omo ope s’ise gidi gan, o n gbope (gbope)” Lil Kesh talks about a blessed young guy that keeps spending his money on a lady- Titilope but one day, his money becomes insufficient and he is unable to spend again. He says he doesn’t want his case to be like that. He wants to have money, spend the way he likes on what he desires and still have sufficient money because money is important in life. He says when he wakes up, all he wants to be seeing is just money. He encourages people to be active, work hard till they make money because money truly makes people look good.

In the verse 3, “Omo Ase, o lo n toro jacki (kuro n’be)” Zlatan Ibile encourages people to connect and interact with other people rather than stay put in one place thinking blessing will come to them in their idleness. The artiste believes that connecting with people is one certain way to breakthrough in life. He also charges people not to be afraid to take risks at times “Gbenu si, take up”.

He further says that when his story changes and he starts having sufficient money, it would be like miracle and people would agree that only God is able. He says the world is sweet when there is money. He says he is now earning dollars, pounds, dirhams and poverty is forbidden in his life. He also acknowledges Shina Peller in his verse.

WHAT IS THE SONG “ABLE GOD” BY CHINKO EKUN FT LIL KESH AND ZLATAN IBILE ABOUT?

It is just a prayer to God by three artistes- Chinko Ekun, Lil Kesh and Zlatan Ibile. They ask God to bless them immensely and never make their account insufficient so that they can also enjoy the good things of life. This they sang basically in the chorus and post-chorus.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Showers of blessing– Abundance of good things; Sufficient money– To have enough money to meet one’s need without someone’s help, never lacking at anytime

Insufficient funds- This is the opposite of sufficient funds. This means inability to meet one’s needs as a result of inadequate or no fund. No money for transaction (Like in the video, the yound dude’s account that was spending on Titilope became empty)

Blessing– A good gift from God

Chairperson– A head of an occasion or someone who leads or is in charge of a meeting, large organization, company or event

Ope– Thanks; Gbope– Receive thanks; Omo ase– The one who cooks; Omo ase (slang)- one who is not smart, may be sluggish or a dormant

FUNNY MOVES

This guy on white had to just make me laugh. “Odi” funny! Did you see the way he was dancing? LMAO, anyway, that was part of the interesting scene in the video.

Oh my God! This Zlatan dance steps, even his facial expression made me laugh all through the video; extremely hilarious!

I am so loving him!

SOUND

Melodiously superb! This is one tune that would keep ringing in your head for long.

I could hear some background singing; it was awesome too. Lil Kesh’s voice really made me fall in love with the song, Zlatan’s body movements and verse made me love the song and Chinko Ekun’s verse made me eager to have this sufficient money “I will take you to Malaysia, Lo si Turkey lo se facial” Their vocals flowed well with the beat and it was clear also.

They were all expressive as they sang the lyrics; they all had funny expressions especially Zlatan. They were so unswerving with the style of rhythm. The various instrumentals used (piano, guitar, drums) blended well and enhanced the beauty of the song.

I also love the way the instrument was played in the post chorus (tarataratara 8x)

(THE DANCERS)

LOCTION

It was shot indoor, inside a church in Nigeria.

COSTUME

Nice! They were looking like triplets. They were uniformed in the cloth (black) they wore as well as footwear (white). Also, they wore the same type of jewelry, gold in colour, although, Lil Kesh’s was silver.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The trio made the video interesting to watch. They were all happy and also had some amusing dance steps. The video complements the track. The story in the video reflects the message of the song. The story is a gripping one. The dancers are energetic; nice video concept. The dialogue between the elderly man and Bro lively in the short drama was somehow.

Also, the lightning was too much and made the video too bright like that of a new torch light, especially the scene they were dancing. It was like light from heaven was shining upon them. Also, at some point the pictures were blurry.

But, really, for church service, how can the church be so dark like that, even during rehearsals the lights are always on except they do not have a generator..

THE STORY IN THE VIDEO

There are two stories in the video

Story 1

During church service, an elderly man walks to the altar to give his testimony. He tells the congregation to help him shout 500 halleluiahs, apparently it seems like the man is empty of words as he beats around the bush trying to give a testimony. The pastor charges him to go straight to the point but he is unable to. A man~ Bro Lively from the congregation gets mad at the elderly man and tells the pastor to chase him away. He mocks him saying that the wall of Jericho fell down after shouting 7 halleluiahs. Unable to stand the man’s attitude, the young man in anger walks out from the church service telling the elderly man that he is likely to have an accident with the way he is going.

The story has a bad ending, wetin concern accident now with testimony? The person that wrote the script was not creative enough in the conclusion. They could have just ended the drama when the elderly man asked them to shout 500 halleluiahs. What should have accompanied this is the facial expression of the whole congregation as the elderly man fumbles for the words to use.

Story 2

A guy keeps spending on a lady until one day he sees that there is no money in his account; insufficient money. It then occurred to him that he has been fooling around

JUST WONDERING

  • Meanwhile, is this Lil Kesh’s new identity now, to be wearing glasses everywhere…the same look he had in the song “Issa Goal”
  • What was that Chinko Ekun said at the beginning of the song- is that his own Chinese? That must be Nigerian Chinese
  • I don’t know if all these back up singers were hiding their faces or what, we barely saw their faces, especially those at the back.
