(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ANYBODY BY BURNA BOY “THIS SONG IS JUST PROMOTING VIOLENCE!”

IG @ogefashblog

Ah ah, “Eni to ba ta, fele fele, oma la’go lori won” which means whoever misbehaves, break bottle on the person’s head. What rubbish. So the artiste is encouraging people to fight. He is promoting wrong vibe; violence. How can he say that if anybody misbehaves, people should use bottle to break their heads. If that’s how they have been using bottle to break the heads of those that misbehave every now and then, I am sure most people would have been dead or if you are lucky to be alive, you may end up with bandages round your head.

In the true sense, people misbehave one way or the other, human beings always err, but that doesn’t mean the artiste should now encourage people to break bottles on the heads of those that misbehave.

When Burna Boy misbehaved the other time by sending robbers to attack Mr.2 Kay, did they use bottle to break his head. Infact, the police were giving him one silly preferential treatment, and here he is instigating fight among people. So’ra e Burna boy (Watch yourself o, Burna boy)

He even encourages people to hit those that are not smart so that they can wake up and be smart.

The song “Anybody” also talks about the transformation in the life of the artiste. He says he has moved from the level of telling people “Yes Sir” to people now telling him “Yes Sir.” In essence, he is a boss and would only respect those that respect him. He also encourages those that have to share with others.

Lastly, he  says his haters are nothing compared to him, therefore, he would not waste his time on them.

But away from the lyrics, the song anybody has got a melodious beat.

Take a gander at the lyrics below
