(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) AUDIO MONEY BY RUDEBOY “THESE ARE THE ARTISTES THAT HAVE AUDIO MONEY”

IG @ogefashblog

I so love this song. The video features internet sensation Shatta bandle.

Moving on, so now we can categorically say that those that do not have money but showoff expensive lifestyle on social media as well as boast about having money when they don’t have, are

#audiomoney people; well according to Rudeboy.

Nice tune I must say. I love the Chorus in particular. The chorus goes thus:

“E ma pariwo (Don’t shout).
Dem money na just audio ( Na audio).”

“Ema pariwo” is a Nigerian Yoruba word which means “Don’t shout”

So what is the song “Audio money” by Rudeboy really about?

The artiste used the word “Audio Money” to refer to money that is never seen but constantly heard from people who claim to have money.

Audio money is when you publicly showoff money and property and make people believe you are wealthy and have got property, whereas  you no get anything; idi (you are) broke.

Audio money can also be when you publicly promise to give someone money but you don’t fulfil the promise. The money automatically becomes audio money because it was just spoken and never seen or given to the person.

Audio money is also when you are rich on social media and poor in real life.

Rudeboy referred to these audio money people as fakers. That is they are living fake lives. For the artistes that have audio money; hmmm, I am still trying to figure them out. But if you have any artiste in mind, kindly fill me in via the comment box.

The song “Audio money” has three verses. The pre chorus and chorus were sung three times each.

Take a gander at the lyrics below

I am wondering if the video complements the track. I know the name of his record label is Fire department, but which one “com be (is)” the pouring of water on those “wey dey (that are)”  live fake life? I didn’t even understand the last part of the song where Shatta Bandle and some people were dancing and Rudeboy poured water on them. For me, I think the video concept could have been great if it was properly utilized. What ya think? Anyone that can relate the fire fighter concept to the theme of the song should kindly make use of the comment box to share. Thanks!

  1. The fire department ‘calms down’ the audio money people as the chorus says. The last part with shatta bandle shows he ( shatta) makes it rain that’s why he looked at him and instead of pouring the water on him, sprayed it up. Shows he isn’t audio.
