THE REVIEW
So, like I said in the into, how will someone not dance foolishly if kokoro (ant) enters the persons pant- so ironical
Lyrically, the song comes in two short verses done by both Davido and Zlatan. The song has meaning as it basically talks about the acceptable manner a lady or someone should dance especially those with the big bums
The pre-chorus and chorus seem like the dominant lyrics in the song and it was sung three times each. The artistes sang both in Yoruba, English and Pidgin
The song arrangement- Intro- Pre chorus- Chorus- Verse 1 (Davido)-Pre chorus- Chorus- Verse 2 (Zlatan)- Pre chorus- Chorus- Outro
The lyrics are plain and repetitive!

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG
In the prechorus, Jo kin jo Davido basically talks about the manner in which someone, a lady in particular should dance. He charges ladies to dance as if ants entered their pants. He also says they should dance like a rich person and not like a foolish person.
In the chorus, Fatty bumbum, big-gi bumbum Davido eulogizes a girl with big bum and says her waist shakes well
In the verse 1, My mama ju ibadi, baby oya ju ibadi (Baby shake your waist, baby shake your waist now) Davido calls his lady beautiful names like chahcha, omalicha and asks her to shake her waist. He also asks her to shake her bum while dancing for him. He thinks she is an unusual kind of girl. He invites her over to his sleeping quarters so they can get down.
In the verse 2, Wo! Akpati yen- Eniola Badmus, mo gbo pe eni caucus (Your backside like that of Eniloa Badmus, I heard you have a group) Zlatan first of all eulogizes a girls backside and relates it with that of Nollywood actress- Eniola Badmus. He also says that when people especially ladies hear you have lots of money like billions in your account, their eyes go wide open and come unto you like they want to feast on you. .
He further talks about the plenty money he has and says he has acquired plush vehicles like Rolls Royce and Bentley. He also says when you have money, people that have been ignoring your call before, will now hurriedly pick it.

WHAT DOES THE SONG BUM BUM BY DAVIDO AND ZLATAN MEAN
The song just emphasizes the manner in which someone should dance. They admonish people to dance with class, more like a rich person and not like a foolish person.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS
Olowo- Rich person; Oloshi- Foolish person
Ibadi- Waist; Chacha- Flawless, brand new, spackling, shining, bright
Omalicha- One who is beautiful; Belly dancer- One who dances with the belly
LOCATION
It is an outdoor shot. It was shot in Nigeria. It was shot on the street
COSTUME
They were all casually dressed. The costume complements the track;
SOUND
It is a fast tempo song and it is danceable. The use of percussion instruments and other instruments made the song pleasing to the ears.

VIDEO PRODUCTION
All through the video, I could not really feel that bond between Davido and Zlatan. It looked like Davido recorded his part separately likewise Zlatan. The song has this street-life language, so it is safe to say the video complements the track.
But wait o, which bum bum did ZLatan and Davido refer to as fatty bum bum? If na those girls wey dey attach their bum bum in front of the camera, dem no get big ass biko
