(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: LADY BY REMA “I LIKE THIS SONG BUT…”

IG @ogefashblog.

So, like I was saying, I said I like the song “Lady” by Rema but the slangs were too much and so unnecessary. Ahah, gbogbo slang! Ogini? Kilode? Menene? Quoi? Que; as in what happened na.

Infact, in four words “This na slang song”.  There was hardly a line he sang without putting one or two slangs, and all those slangs are sex related.

I know the meaning of these…

Teli means television

Because the way that you shake your ukwu : Because the way you shaKe your waist

Shanowole moti  yo o wa oh: Make an impressive appearance; I have also made an  appearance

Omoge you want turn me to epa: Baby girl you want to turn me to groundnut.)

I really don’t know how “Groundnut” relates to this song though. Except Rema is trying to say that the lady’s physique makes him stare at her without fickling…

Make I chook your socket in the context of this song means sex

Baby make I chop your pomo. My medulla reset o: This line is talking about sex. The ariste used the word “pomo” to  refer to a girls’s body part; perhaps vagina or something.

This your body go cause yapa: Yapa literally means plenty. However, in the context of this song, it means trouble.

So,  I am trying so hard to decipher some lines. Biko (please), any translator among our readers for these words  in “bold and italics” below; kindly make use of the comment box

  • Oya make you shakiti your bobo, oya ropoto make you no go give me opolo
  • Achukuleke make you give me palansa, scatter your baka
  • Oya ripata ripata you too dey shakara
  • Ah you must to love dongoyaro, my baby for Colorado, yellow sisi my odo ra o Your temper ija akakakakakakaka
  • Okemute kaki wan cause yapa. Rapata rapata this girlo
  • Your temper ayo akokokokokokoko

ABOUT THE SONG “LADY” BY REMA

Despite all the slangs used by the artiste, it wouldn’t take a good  slang identifier seconds to decipher each slang and to also tell that all the slangs are sex related.

The song “Lady” by Rema  talks talks about the effect a lady’s body has on the artiste.  According to the artiste, everything about this lady excites him.

I love the video concept; it is different from the usual concept used by other artistes. It is simple but spectacular. However, the video quality is average. Also, the video vixen didn’t nail that her dance at all. There was really nothing extra-ordinary about that dance. Imagine, she was given an opportunity to showcase her talent for 1 minute 10 seconds, but she didn’t make proper use of it.  Perhaps, the video setting didn’t help in making viewers see the beauty of her dance. Regardless, I still like the song sha…

 

 

The major instruments used in the song include the drums and piano. The song comes in three verses. The chorus was sung thrice and the post-chorus twice. The artiste sang basically in pidgin.
