(+LYRICS + MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: TIRE U BY VICTOR AD FT DAVIDO “VERY INSPIRING LYRICS! SHEY SUFFER NO DEY TIRE YOU, EHN YOU?”

We are now on IG@ogefashblog

I love this jam, so mad! Very inspiring lyrics! Why does that Victor AD love to dress in that simple manner; so simple. He wears the same kind of shirts but different colour with almost the same pattern though; he should please change his clothing- style biko. I remember when he came to perform at the University of Lagos Alumni Fiesta; nkan kanna ni sha (it is the same dressing style)

Away from Victor AD’s style of dressing, oya, sharpily take a gander at the lyrics below before the main review.

THE REVIEW

Omo, Victor AD’s verse is long but Davido’s verse come longggggggg; phew! Anyway the good thing is that each verse makes sense.

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses; the first was taken by Victor AD and the second by Davido.  The song is quite lengthy- I mean the verses, pre chorus and chorus are very lengthy.  The Chorus was taken three times while the Pre-chorus was taken two times. The artistes sang in pidgin

SONG ARRANGEMENT:

Intro- Pre Chorus- Chorus – Verse 1 (Victor Ad) Chorus- Verse 2 (Davido) – Pre Chorus- Chorus/Outro

The lyrics are inspiring and meaningful as well. It advises people to be up and doing if they do not want to suffer in life for long and if they want to ever succeed in life.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Pre-chorus, “It’s either I win or I win” Victor AD says giving reasons for failure is like making it acceptable. In order not to find himself giving excuses for failure, he says he would strive to win at all cost. He prays to God to make him victorious so he can enjoy life while he is on earth. He says he doesn’t want his situation to resort to having to apportion blame to his neighbours for his lack of progress or sufferings. He advises people to enjoy their life while on earth because when they die, people will forget them.
In the chorus “Suffer no dey tire you” the artistes wonder if people are not tired of suffering because all they do is sit down, laze around; they do not pray, jostle or work it out but they want to be successful; ko le work (It can’t work)

The artistes further compared those who yearn for success but are slothful to their mates who are up and doing and are succeeding in their various endeavors. They also compared them with their mates that are graduating and getting promotions at their various places of work.

In the verse 1 “I know say dem go talk say I don come again” Victor AD says many people may think he is grumbling about the things he does not have or they may think that his demands are too high for a beginner, but he says those that are criticizing him also want the same thing he wants. He asks God to show him who he really is as he wants to know if he is still doing the correct thing or he is deceiving himself.
In the Verse 2 “Eeeh, little boy, you gat work to do” Davido says for one to be successful, one has got to work which he is doing musically. He says his music work has made him wealthy and he is capable of acquiring expensive things for himself but haters say he is using voodoos.

He also says some say it is his father’s money that he is spending or helping his career, but he makes it clear to them that he entered into the music world as a street boy; the same the same way other artistes got in. He says some people think he won’t be popular but God put them into shame. Davido further rebukes poverty and his enemies. He says that the type of wealth he has now, can make him associate with big people like Otedola. He says no matter how people are hating on him, his presence in the music industry can’t be ignored.  He wishes those that wish him well good.

WHAT DOES THE SONG MEAN “TIRE YOU” BY VICTOR AD FT DAVIDO MEAN

Success doesn’t come to you when you are seated doing nothing, you must go out there, jostle and pray as well to get your desired breakthrough.

The song is a wake up call to those who are yearning for success to get up and take action. It is a wake up call to those who desire to end suffering in their lives to be up and doing till they get the success they yearn for.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

It’s either I win or I win– No other option but to win
I no get excuse for failure- Don’t give reasons for failing, an excuse makes it more acceptable; Cash out– To spend on an item non-stop; Chop life– Enjoy life
Convoy–  To be escorted by a group for protection; Settle for less– To take something worth less or less than yourself, that is not deserving of you; Hustle: To work it out until you find great opportunities you want in life; Grateful– An appreciation of something done; Water no get enemy– Nobody hates something as useful as water

LOCATION

It was shot in Nigeria. They used mostly outdoor scenes. Its location tallies with the theme of the song…

COSTUME

Good; it fits the video concept.

 SOUND: Very inspiring tune. I enjoyed every bit of the song. I loved Davido’s modulation @ the 1 minute 51 seconds of the song where he sang “Lord I want to know”

The artistes sang expressively to the beat. They were also consistent with the style of rhythm. The various instrumentals used (Drum, piano, shakers, tambourine) blended well and enhanced the beauty of the song. So melodious!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very interesting visuals! Terrific story-line! The slum area and the inhabitants’ lifestyles did complement the message of the song. The entire visual reflects the message of the song.  Although, I felt Victor AD was constantly looking at the floor and was closing his eyes too much.

Nna mhen, I love their acting. Their acting made the video interesting to watch.

 

THE STORY IN THE VIDEO

It tells the story of four guys in the neighborhood, one of them was hardworking even though he did not have money, while the three others did nothing but mocked him anytime he was going out to look for job.

The hardworking guy continued searching for a job or customers to patronize his work. He did not relent in his search for a breakthrough. Meanwhile his three other neighbors who were jobless and did nothing but play game kept on mocking him. One day, God opened door for this hardworking guy and he finally became rich. He left the slum area while his neighbors who mocked him remained there. One of them saw him and was remorseful. He regretted not using his time to do something meaningful.

Those trios that mocked the hardworking guy are the faces you see in Xploit comedy
