THE REVIEW

Those that are beefing this song, make them go chop raw beef with bitter leaf (OYO) or better still opt for a sweetener to sweeten their hearts so they can love the song at all cost when they are watching the video, opari (Finished); dope track, if you are hating, you are only killing yourself.

Lyrically, the lyrics are well arranged. Although the song has two verses, what dominated the song was the Pre chorus, Chorus, and the hook, these were taken 3 times. Davido sang basically in Pidgin, although in the verse 2, he sang only in Yoruba.

The song is meaningful as it talks about women who are exceptional and are equally successful in their chosen careers.

Song arrangement– Intro- Per-chorus- Chorus- Verse 1- Hook- Pre chorus- Chorus- Verse 2- Hook- Pre chorus- Chorus/Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Pre Chorus, “Shey na you wan go near my bae” Davido dares those who think they can attack his girlfriend (Verbally or non verbally). He says they can’t come face to face with her as she would put them in their place. He says he won’t take it likely with whoever tries to look for her trouble.

In the chorus– “With my baby my wonder woman (Fine baby), eeh” the artiste defines his woman as one with exceptional features; strong, successful, beautiful, hospitable, classy and ideal.

In the Verse 1, “See my guy, take a chill pill o” the artiste talks more about his girlfriend that is exceptional. He says she is not artificial, that everything about her is natural. She has her natural beauty and doesn’t need to makeup before she looks beautiful. He says she has a nice physique. He also says she is not one of those ladies that are desperate to have a man or keep a rich man. He says she is not one of those ladies guys can snatch away from him even if they are richer or more famous than him.

In the hook “Shey make I wire wire” the artiste shows his capability to send money in whatever currency to whoever wants it to do whatever they wish.

In the verse 2, the artiste says despite the fact that people are familiar with the proverb “Olobe lo loko” that is he who cooks well retains the husband, they are still saying that his girlfriend has used charm or voodoos on him to make him love her dearly. Meanwhile it is no voodoos that is keeping them together but the fact that she is different from other ladies
