(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: ONE TICKET BY KIZZ DANIEL FT DAVIDO “OMO THIS VIDEO VIXEN NA MIKE TYSON O!”

(Follow Ogefash on IG @ ogefash_july Twitter @ogemama @Ogefash)

Anytime I hear this line in the song “If you want to leave, biko leave…,” why  am I always so quick to remember what the president of Nigeria- #Muhammadu #Buhari once said in this #mber months. I quote him “Those who feel they have another country, can leave”

(Clearing throat) Hmmm, me I don’t have another country o, but it seems like I just need that one ticket, although not for Kizz Daniel and Davido’s reason, but for something else sha…

Anyway, that is by the way, kindly take a gander at the lyrics before the main review, njoyyy!

MUSIC REVIEW

Ehen, ladies did you hear this Kizz Daniel’s line “Meanwhile Rosita dey hail o. If you break my heart today, me I go sharperly replace.” Why do I have this feeling that men are not always 100% faithful to their women. If they do not cheat emotionally, they cheat physically or they cheat in both ways. I mean when someone says “I go sharperly replace” that means there has always been another woman on standby blowing his mind.

Davido’s verse looks like one ready to make his relationship work while that of Kizz is like one that cheats on his girlfriend emotionally and quickly jumps at any opportunity to quit his relationship and move to another.

Moving on, so, the song starts with a dialogue between two ladies that lasted for about 43 seconds. Lady A tells lady B about how her boyfriend had left her. Her words “I loved him so much, I gave him everything, we were so perfect…” The intro is atmospheric!

By the way, do yah all notice the station Kizz was tuned to? It is African Magic! When I first saw it, I was like, “Awwww” a Nigerian artiste is watching something Nigerian. Common, Nigerian artistes hardly do or say anything Nigerian again, they have all gone foreign in their thoughts, words, actions, outfits; activities sha. It was even recently they started wearing African prints. Nice one @ Kizz Daniel, I really love that he was tuned to African magic.

Lyrically, the song comes in this form; Intro-verse1-chorus-interlide-verse2-chorus (2x)-interlude-chorus(2x)-outro” It has two verses, the chorus was taken five times.

Both artistes sang mostly in pidgin although Davido sang in Yoruba in one of the lines of his verse. Punchy  lyrics “See baby, if you want to leave, biko leave, no do shakara, no dey carry your shoulder o” and meaningful.

 

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the verse 1, “Eh, every time wire me money (Sepe)” Davido tells us how much effect his babe has on him. He says the girl is striking and overwhelms him. However, despite the intense love he has for his babe and how he shows-her-off, he says his babe is not reciprocating his love for her. Rather, all she does is demand more and more money from him all the time. This makes the artiste see his babe as a scammer, someone who is deceiving him or pretending to love him in order to get his cash.

 

In the chorus “See baby, if you want to leave o, biko leave” Davido and Kizz Daniel unable to handle their girlfriend’s lack of commitment to the relationship or their unsatisfactory way of showing affection, tell them to quit the relationship if they want to.

They say they are going off their mind because the girls are proving difficult or fronting for them. Unable to take their nonchalant acts anymore and likewise get what they desire in the relationship, they book their ticket to another country and leave the ladies  without telling them.

In the verse 2, “Hello O (Con confam). Me I no dey fear you again.”   Kizz Daniel says he is no longer afraid of what may become of him if his babe leaves him. In essence, her hold on him is no longer strong and if she ever leaves him, it would have zero effect on him.  He also says his girlfriend is always quick to get upset as well as call  taxi to take her home, leaving him wanting

He further says, there is already another lady “Rosita” on standby and anytime she quits on him, he would quickly replace her with another girl.

 WHAT IS THE SONG ONE TICKET BY KIZZ DANIEL FT DAVIDO ABOUT

The song “One Ticket” by Kizz Daniel ft Davido is about the intense love both artistes have for their girlfriendss who are not reciprocating the love. Despite the show of affection, their ladies take them for granted and do not show commitment. Meanwhile, they are always demanding; the only thing they seem to be concerned about is the artistes sending only money to them.  This makes the artiste see them as scammers, ladies who are just around because of the money they have. The ladies are driving them crazy, but they can’t stand their lack of commitment, so they jet out.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Love–  A strong affection or fondness for someone; Scam-Deceit, fraud

Wire me money– In the contest of this song means send/transfer money to someone.

Scammer– A cheat, swindler; Biko– An Igbo word in Nigeria that means “Please”

Blow one’s mind– To impress someone so much. To amaze or overwhelm someone, to strongly affect someone or make someone excited.

Shakara- Proving so hard to talk to,  to front, to pose or act like you matter or you are more  relevant than others, feeling extremely over special, feel like people can not do without you, proving difficult at first and eventually giving in later after  countless  pleas, to be begged for a long time before listening to someone or doing someone’s bid

Carry your shoulder– To be proud; Kolo– Crazy; Vex– Get angry, annoyed

Obodo Oyibo– White man’s land; Sharperly– Quickly, hurriedly, speedily

Uber– A modernized means of taxi transportation; a peer-peer ride sharing taxi cab, transportation network company

COSTUME

Both Kizz Daniel and Davido were mostly on Casual. The paparazzi also! But the first video vixen wore a glittering gown, while the second video vixen wore a plain gown. The second vixen also wore a night robe revealing her undies; the ladies looked more super flowing than the men.

SOUND

Original melody! Clear vocals, they were consistent with their style of rhythm. I also love the drum beats!

LOCATION

Most artists now use Luxurious Resorts for their video shoots. It seems the video was shot in SouthAfrica, perhaps @Legend Golf  and Safari resort situated in 441 Lynnwood road, corner Rodericks, #Pretoria

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Clean video! The video complements the track. The guys were really emotional. They were all very expressive though including the two video vixens. Infact, that first video vixen, “Omo she be Mike Tyson o.” I am sure she must have met  professional boxer Mike Tyson before. As in her rage and her readiness to kick or box someone or something is not a “Hia” something.

 

JUST WONDERING

  • What did Davido say at the 2 minutes 49 seconds of the video “Isko?” or what?, perhaps, he wanted to say, it is called, hmmm
  • I was going through his tattoos, guess whose name I was looking for? The assurance mama- #Chioma. Did I just say that? Well, true that, but, I didn’t see her name, perhaps he has it somewhere else, may be his…(Hmm, I will tell you later)
  • Davido should stop bringing out his tongue, like seriously, he knows I have told him that in my last article on assurance (View the review here @ http://www.ogefash.reviews), he read it…
  • This first video vixen must be a Mike Tyson fan or may be Jetli? What of Van Damme? She was over expressive; may be na experience sha…
  • The way Davido did his eyes though in the 1 minute 33/35 seconds of the video
  • I did not hear what Kizz was saying during the interlude, na incantation ni? Just kidding but he was just not audible enough and the beat also overshadowerd his voice
  • Ehen, see the way the camera just focused on the flight attendant’s bum…

(+LYRICS)MUSIC REVIEW: BLESSINGS ON ME BY REEKADO BANKS “IF ONLY MELINDA GAYLE (TARAJI P) IN ACRIMONY DID WHAT THIS WOMAN DID!”

(+LYRICS)MUSIC REVIEW: BLESSINGS ON ME BY REEKADO BANKS “IF ONLY MELINDA GAYLE (TARAJI P) IN ACRIMONY DID WHAT THIS WOMAN DID!”

Awwwww! I am so in love with Reekado’s songs. I love this “blessings on me” song.  Honestly, I have been hearing this song on radio stations and from street DJ’s but never for once knew that the voice behind the song is Reekado Banks. So, when I saw it in the catalogue of songs to be reviewed, I was so excited and quickly jumped on the song. His songs are always dope and I have always wanted to review his songs. When “Ogefash” Blog kicked off officially, his coveted songs such as “Oluwa ni” “Easy” and “Like” were already old, so we just had to do newer songs.

But, I don’t know why I do have this feeling that I may still review one of his old songs, may be “Like” ft Tiwa Savage.

Okay, that is by the way, like you know, we always want you to take a gander and have a feel of the lyrics to any song before the main review. Njoyyy!

MUSIC REVIEW

Thank goodness the song “Blessings on me” is short; just about 3 minutes 39, replaying the track with ease would not be a problem.

By the way, it seems like all artistes in the country are now doing prayer songs. There is Chinko Ekun ft Lil Kesh and Zlatan Ibile in the dope song Able God (You can view able God review here @www.ogefash.reviews) amongst others.

Meanwhile, I have noticed that Reekado Banks just has a way of including in his song, lines that have to do with blessing his mummy. Remember in his song “Oluwa ni” he said “…Small boy buy im mama house” This goes a long way to show that he is so fond of his mum and appreciative of her for all her efforts; his mum must have really gone through a lot just to see him get to where he is today. However, it also makes it look like he is a product of single parent; perhaps his dad absconded or something.

Lyrically, I am so loving the lyrics! He sang the chorus four times and the pre-chorus three times. There are two verses in the song; the verse 1 has four lines while the verse 2 has 8 lines. He sang basically in Pidgin but fused it with little Yoruba. Some of the Yoruba words he used are “Oluwa” “tele tele” “awon”…

This is indeed a very straightforward song; easily comprehensible, inspiring and very meaningful. You can relate one line to another line and to the entire verse and the song in entirety. More like a story-like verse talking about his days of affliction where no one wanted to associate with him, but when his story eventually changed and he became wealthy, they all wanted to associate with him.

WHAT IS THE SONG “BLESSINGS ON ME” BY REEKADO BANKS ABOUT?

The word blessings mean to have an abundance of good things. Hence, the artiste uses this song to implore God to bless him abundantly so he can fulfill that strong desire he has to pamper or better still take good care of his mummy. He implores God to bless him abundantly so that people’s constant mockery of him when he had nothing will change and he will be celebrated. This is evident when he sang “See dem call me tear tear, no be Kanye tear tear” In essence, he was wearing torn clothes not as fashion like Kanye’s style, but because he was poor and couldn’t afford good clothes.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the chorus, “Father Father, I want to, want to, hammer hammer (Eh eh eh)” Reekado Banks says he wants to really hit it big as in make a lot of money so he can pamper/take good care of his mummy. He therefore implores God to look his way and bless him abundantly.

Spoil” in the context of the song doesn’t mean decay but to pamper someone.
In the verse 1, “Throwback to the tele tele, see them show me pepper”

The artiste says, in the past, a lot of people used to doubt his talent and ability to be successful. He said he really suffered; people insulted him a lot as well as used his torn cloth to make jest of him. However, when his ship arrived, all those that had doubted him and looked down on him now wanted to attach themselves or associate with him at all cost “As I don dey collect, see dem want dey connect”

In the pre-chorus, “Oluwa, shower your blessings on me, blessings on me,  yoh yoh” the artiste implores God to bless him abundantly


In the verse 2, “Dem full for the twitter, steady commenting on insta” is a continuation of what he sang about in Verse 1. The artiste says from the comments of people on Instagram and twitter, he could tell that some doubted his talent and never believed he would someday be successful in the music career. Rather than accept his new identity as a successful gifted musician, they instead start envying him and try to taint his image by calling him bad names such as “Thief”. This he says in the line “Ole, ole bawo? Dem start to dey beef am”

He further says that no matter how angry the enemies get about his success, his shining and outstanding work will continue to make him happy. He says he wants to be successful or be a terrific footballer like Christiana Ronalo.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Doubting Thomas– One who requires proof before believing, one who finds it difficult to believe things; Glitters- To shine or sparkle.

Christiana Ronaldo: A Portuguese successful professional footballer

Connect– to attach, link, associate; Show me pepper– To make someone suffer

Spoil– In the context of this song means pamper, to treat with excessive care or spend luxuriously for the person not decay or destroy or damage

Showers of blessings– Abundance of good things

Tele Tele-A Yoruba word that means before before; Beefing: To envy

To hammer– In the context of this song means to hit it big, to make a lot of money

Ole- Thief; Diedie- Small small; Para- To get angry

SOUND:

Melodious tune! Clear vocals! Terrific beat drums! Reekado was also expressive as he sang the lyrics. He was consistent with the style of rhythm.  I love the interlude; he didn’t eat up or fill up the entire beat with lyrics. I really love that.

LOCATION

It was shot in Nigeria. Indoor and Outdoor shoot. They used a field majorly where the young and adult boys played football. Also, most of Reekado’s scenes were shot on the field.

They also used an apartment; the building where the family of three lived as well as where the sport team went to sign a deal.

COSTUME

Terrific. It was basically a suit affair. Reekado was looking well suited in the red suit. The matching shirt even brought out the beauty of the suit. His costume was just the best. At some point he wore casuals though.

The sport team also wore suitable sport wears and footwear. Even, from the intro, their dressing showed that they were not well to do. Nice costuming!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

A great video concept! Terrific cast! Terrific lightning as well! The video complements the track. All those that featured in the song were really expressive; they interpreted their roles very well and this of course made the video interesting to watch.

STORY IN THE VIDEO

Tells the story of a family of three; Husband, wife and son. The couple is having a financial challenge. The husband perhaps has no job and rather than go out to search for one, he is always sleeping or worrying about his lack of money. His inability to take care of the family worries his wife especially when they have a son (but their son cute o) So, one day, while the husband is sleeping as usual, she wakes him up to complain about their son’s health or inability to feed well. She urges him to do something to bring in money to the house. This doesn’t go down well with the husband who absconds from his family in the night when they are all sleeping. When the wife wakes up, he finds out that her husband already abandoned her. She takes full responsibility of their son, becoming the mother and father.

One day, she notices that her son has got the football skills. She retrieves the money she hid under the bead and takes him to where his football skills can be honed. She pleads with the coach to manage her money and help train her child. As the boy grows playing football, his skills are truly honed. One day, an external coach (The external coach happens to be his father-the man that abandoned his wife and son. He is now a big-wig in the sport industry) comes around and immediately falls in love with the boy’s football skills; oblivious that he is son. So he shows interest in the boy, studies him and later connects him with big-wigs in the sport world. The boy becomes successful and owes the success to God and mum. He appreciates his mum with a car gift and then introduces the external coach who has also been instrument to his success to his mum.

The mother sighting the husband again is irritated for abandoning her and his son. Unable to stand him, she walks away and her son follow her
