THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song has two verses, the first verse was taken by Patoranking; quite short I must say, while the second verse was taken by Davido. Davido’s verse is lengthier than Patoranking’s. The artistes sang the hook three times, the pre-chorus and chorus two times. They sang in pidgin. The song is meaningful, the artistes use the track “Confirm” to  tell the world that  many people can attest or testify to the plenty money that they have

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the hook, “Eruade give me this money” Patoranking implores God to give him money because some people act or behave funny or strangely when someone does not have money.

In the Verse 1, “As I wake this morning” Patoranking says whenever he wakes up, what occupies his mind is how to make money. He assures himself that he must to make the money.

In the pre~chorus, “Confirmation season, confirm” the artistes say that everything about them is guaranteed; they assure people they have sufficient money and they will keep increasing. 

They also make people realize that the market women, danfo drivers; everybody can attest to their success and the plenty money that they have. They also say that their increase is certain.

In the Verse 2, “My wire no dey ever get dull season” Davido talks about different things. He talks about his account never getting empty as money keeps rolling in for him. He makes us have an idea of what his financial account looks like since he is frequently called by clients and his accountant as well.

He further tells us that  a certain lady by name Rebecca is proving hard to get meanwhile there is another lady in the corner- Anita who is trying to get down  with him.

He says everything about him shows affluence. He wears only designers and associates himself with expensive things; he says all are just blessings from God. He says he can never be troubled about his money finishing or whatever good he does because God is always blessing him. He further says God’s constant blessing is what makes him keep giving

He says his father’s money “Adeleke” is confirmed, also Nigerians, Ghana cedis, Osun State  money and Nigerians are confirmed people

In the chorus “L-O-V-E, Iove this life” the artistes emphasize how much they cherish the world since they they have sufficient money to do whatever they want to do, buy whatever they want to buy, go to anyplace they want to go in the world.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Knack: Slang~ To hit, talent, flair; Confirm: Assured, Guarantee

Oluwa means God; Konji~ Sexually aroused and In the mood to sex

COSTUME

So costumely!

LOCATION

IT was shot in London. They used both indoor and outdoor scenes.

SOUND

Melodious! I just love everything about the beat; very pleasing to the ears. The artistes were very expressive as they sang to the beat.  I love the drum beats, it was more pronounced than any other instrument used in the composition of the beat.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very interesting visuals. Quality video and great lightning.
