ABOUT THE SONG “ONE THING” BY DAVIDO

To want “One thing” means to desire something or someone above everything. Davido used the word “One thing” to emphasize how much he desires a particular lady above everything in life. According to him, he searched tirelessly for this lady among London girls but she was not there. However, one day, she finally came his way.

So who is that lady you think he has been wanting? If you ask me, na his girlfriend- Chioma o, aka Mama Ifeanyi aKa Mama David. But, for Chioma, the one thing she has been wanting is a child for Davido who would have a different sex from other Davido’s baby mama’s (Sophia and Amanda) children. This, Chioma revealed on her Instagram page where she played and danced to the song “one thing” and posted a picture of a boy as the “one thing” she has been wanting.

 

All through the song however, he never mentioned what really made that lady the “one thing” he has been wanting except where he talked about her body that drives people crazy in the verse 2. View below

“Your body fit to make a man wanna craze” “Your body fit make a man wanna sing”

It is appalling that in an interesting tune like this, Davido couldn’t sing a line about the girl’s character that makes him “so want” her, and makes him search tirelessly for her aside her body; omashe (What a pity)

But all in all, the song is cool. It is neither too slow and nor too fast. The major instruments used include harp, piano and drums. The song is melodic. It has an afrobeat mix. The song comes in two verses. The artiste sang basically in English but fused some lines with few Yoruba words (A Nigerian Language) in the intro. He sang the chorus thrice and the pre chorus twice. As at the time of writing this review, the video for the song has not dropped. I really wish he would release the video for this song.

By the way, I am trying to understand the line below and connect it to the entire song, got a clue? Kindly make use of the comment box

No go dey reason am o (oh oh oh oh); I’m Michael Jackson, dangerous

Take a gander at the lyrics below.
