(+ LYRICS +TRANSLATION+ MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- AWAY BY PSQUARE “…AND AWAY THEY WENT!”

IG @ogefashblog

I would say this song actually put the Psquare band away. Abi? (Right?) Although in the song “Away” the people the artistes wished away were those that want to separate them from the ladies they love, but it turned out that the group also went away. The Psquare band disbanded and the artistes started their solo career with the stage name Mr.P and Rudeboy.

So, after listening to the song I observed that Rudeboy aka Paul Okoye actually sang most of the song, infact he did all the singing, and I am like why did he even take most of the song self! That was selfish of him, #Winks, just kidding; partially though.

But iin all honesty, the singing should have been done by the duo when they were together as Psquare. I really miss them and I wish that as they are now singing separately, they can also create time, come together and do collaboration, just like the Psquare days. I am a great fan of the twins you know.

So, let’s talk about the song “Away” by Peter and Paul Okoye of the  former Psquare band. The song is a love song. The artistes love a lady whom they feel her presence brings success to their career. However, because of the many marriages that have been collapsing in recent times, they are scared of walking the aisle with the lady so that they do not experience the same thing. Nevertheless, they still love this lady and can’t let her go. They therefore threaten anyone that wants to come in-between them or that wants them to go their separate ways with thunder strikes. The artistes also wish those people away.

That face though at the 3 minutes 8 seconds and 3 minutes 23 seconds of the video was quite scary

Take a gander at the lyrics below
