(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: DON’T JEALOUS ME BY BEYONCE FT TECKNO, YEMI ALADE AND MR. EAZI “WHAT’S THIS BIKO?”

IG @ogefashblog

Ah ah, biko (please) what’s this? Lyrics abi “Mirirics?” God, what a complicated lyric. I don’t understand,  can’t Nigerian artistes sing a plain song? Can’t they sing a song without adding orishirishi (different) slangs. Teckno, Mr. Eazi and Yemi Alade now decided to use slangs and formed unknown languages in this international collaboration. In all honesty, their lyrics are so weak and sleepy.

They no try at all, they just wasted this Indian flowing inspired  beat.  Phew!

“What is “If you get on my don don don”

What is “Me I want to get on your don don don”

What is “Baako Mienu, Yenko haba”

What is “Otunba, oga, saidi, chairman, Mansa, oba, yaro,clear road”

What is “That’s that jealousy (That’s that jealousy)”

What is the song “Don’t jealous me” about? The lyrics to a song title like “Don’t jealous me” is supposed to  talk about those that are feeling resentful towards someone because of the person’s success and so on. Or better still, the lyrics ought ti counter those that have the habit of envying other people because of their achievements not minding the fact that those successful people they see today have one time had their difficult times in the past before they became somebody. But all through the song, I did not hear anything like that.

The lyrics of the artistes had their theme centered on “Class” “Find your level.” They said their level is higher than others. They compared themselves with others that are nothing (Why didn’t they compare themselves with people that are something). More like comparing something that is standard with something that is not standard. In essence they are the standard artistes and can’t be compared to substandard artistes who are not up to them but are trying to bad mouth them. They also said they are too big or relevant to reply people that are not in their class.

Phew! If you feel their lyrics flow with the title of the song, kindly let me know, I really need to know. Please you must indicate what part of the song you feel flows with the title.

Meanwhile, you can take a gander at the lyrics below
