(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- WASH IT BY VICTORIA KIMANI FT SARKODIE “WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY WASHING DOWN?”

IG @ogefashblog.

I I so love this song titled “Wash it” or should I say I love the song because I love both Victoria Kimani and Sarkodie.

“Wash it” is a fast pace song that has got me moving my body non stop as I was reviewing the song. The predominant instrument used in the song rendition is the drum.

What is the song “Wash it” by Victoria Kimani ft Sarkodie about?

Victoria Kimani is an interesting singer. The songstress is from Kenya. She features Ghana’s top rapper- Sarkodie on the track.

The song basically talks about a relationship with no commitment; more like a relationship that both partners are just there to satisfy each other materially,  sexually and otherwise (that has nothing to do with love and commitment). It is a relationship with no strings attached. So, just call it sexual or material love.

View some lines that show that “Wash it” is a sexual love with no promise of marriage.

VERSE 1

“She say gimme dat thing. She no want no wedding ring
He want the thing that thing. She want the thing that thing”

Because we go from dancing to making love right now, ah ah.”

VERSE 2

“That’s how we do baby, that’s how we want do this party
You know we go down, every other day we go down.”


In the chorus where she sang “She want Balenciaga wash it up wash it up ah”
may basically mean that a lady is more concerned about material things than any other thing. She wants to live an expensive life.

However, I am wondering if the title of the track “Wash it” suits the theme of the song. I can’t really connect the title of the track “Wash it” to the entire song. But, what exactly are they washing down? Biko (please) if you have an idea, kindly fill me in via the comment box.

Have the full translation for this song? Kindly share via the comment box.

Also feel free to correct the lyrics below. Thanks!

Take a gander at the lyrics below.

Self made king; the men of the century
No long thing, eba nesa nesempi
Mebotom mayama, brana dera nene empty
Feeling the boy, feeling the swagger. Picking with choice na me me tiaka
Wabra boni dadani joy, wunduti rapper
They don’t wanna see us; senkwasia sema kwakwa
