(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- YEYE BOYFRIEND BY ZLATAN “EVEN ZLATAN DOESN’T KNOW THE MEANING OF YEYE!”

IG @ogefashblog.

It seems like even Zlatan doesn’t even know the meaning of the title of this song “Yeye,” because hecouldn’t even translate it among other translations. What ya think?

Moving on, the video of this song started with a drama that lasted for about 36 seconds. I don’t know whether you noticed when Mama Nike shouted “Ki ni oru, se obe j’ono (What is smelling, did soup burn); that was so baseless. The soup self  did not burn. There was really no need for that line in their dialogue.

Also, I noticed that  the audio of this song was about 3 minutes 29 seconds but the video lasted for 3 minutes 8 seconds; so what happen na?

There was also too many repeated lines in the dialogue between Mama Nike and Baba Nike which I felt was totally unnecessary.

READ THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN MAMA NIKE AND BABA NIKE

Mama Nike: Ah ki ni ru (Ah what is smelling?) Baba Nike, se obe jo’no ni? (Baba Nike, did the soup burn?)

Baba Nike: Ejo, ngba mo ku ro ni ile l’aro yi, eja meta loku ati eyin kan (When I was leaving the house this morning, I left four fishes in the pot. There were three fishes left and one egg)

Bawo le se je? Kini mofe je? Ninu ile yi? Kini mofe je?Kini mofe je? Kini mife je? (H

Iwo omo obirin yi, e’se omo dada (You this woman, you are not a good woman)

O’n se obirin daa (You are not a good woman)

Kini mofe je nisi? Kini mofe je nisi? (What do I want to eat now? What do I want to eat now?)

Mama Nike: Baba Nike, o ni ilakaiye (Baba Nike, you don’t have common sense). O ni ilakaiye (You do not have common sense)

Baba Nike: Iwo gan o ni ilakaiye (You yourself, you don’t have sense). O n se obirin dada (You are not a good woman)

Mama Nike: Olori buruku okurin ni e (You are an unfortunate man) Ori e ti yi (Your head has gone upside down)

Baba Nike: Ako eja je ole (Fish packer and eater; thief). Mo fe’jo re si doctor yeye (I will report you to Doctor Yeye)

Mama Nike: F’ejo mi si wan (Report me to him). A won egbe wa ni ita (Your mates are out there) ti won ra motor fun iyawo won (that they are buying cars for their wives.)

O fi owo obe le, o tun je inu obe na (You did not drop money for soup but you are eating out of the soup)

O wa ba emi ja (You are now fighting me). Se omo bi owo se de ibe (Do you know how the money got there?) Se ono ini ti mo ti ri owo (Do you know where I got the money from?)

Baba Nike: Dr. Yeye ma so (Dr. Yeye will say it)

The intro drama basically explains that a man that is not taking care of the wife when he ought to and when he has the finance, will not have peace of mind. He and his wife would always fight like we saw in the intro drama.

 

The word Yeye means shameful, disgraceful or useless. In the context of this song, the artiste may have used the word “Yeye” to mean “incapable” “Useless” and “Shameless.”

The song “Yeye boyfriend” is therefore talking about guys that are incapable of taking care of their women/wives. He says such men are useless and shameless. He says ladies should not hang on with such men. This he sang in the chorus…

“Say bye bye to yeye boyfriend (Yeye boyfriend) (Say bye-bye to a disgraceful boyfriend)”

The song also talks about guys that are stingy and are not spending on their women when they actually have the finance; the artistes says women should leave such men.

The predominant word in the song is “Yeye boyfriend’ which he used in all the lines in Chorus and Pre-chorus while in some lines in the verse 1. The song has only one verse which he repeated as a second verse. The pre chorus and chorus were taken twice. The lyrics were not really in order.

It is a fast pace song. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drums, shakers and piano.

The song “Yeye boyfriend’ is similar to the song “Bolanle” which the artiste released with a car dealer- IVD. He also sang a line from the “Bolanle” song “Pepper them, Bolanle pepper them oh…” (View the review for the song Bolanle here https://ogefash.reviews/2019/09/18/lyricsmusictranslationon-music-review-bolanle-by-ivd-ft-zlatan-on-repeat/)

However, the song “Bolanle” is more melodious! The artiste sang in pidgin and Yoruba- a Nigerian language.

About the video; the track says one thing and the video says another. Biko (Please) where is the Gucci that is on the Baba Nike? Does he look like a Gucci man?

What’s your view about the song “Yeye boyfriend” where Zlatan acted as Yeye Doctor- a marriage counselor? Kindly share with us via the comment box…
