(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- MOYO BY VANESSA MDEE “VANESSA MDEE IS A FANTASTIC SONGSTRESS!”

IG @ogefashblog

Vanessa Mdee is unarguably

a very fantastic songstress. Her songs are not only interesting but her always accompanied with interesting visuals.

What is the song “Moyo” about?

Vanessa Mdee is a Tanzanian songstress. The word “Moyo” is a word in Swahili that means “Heart”. Hence the song Moyo is a love song whereby the artiste talks about how depressed and sad she is after a broken relationship . Infact the artiste says her heart is failing. This she sang in the chorus. View below…

“Moyo unanikosea”

The artiste has however not let go of her lover in her mind as she still has intense feelings for him, craves for him and desires to be everywhere with him.

The instruments used in the song include piano, guitar, sax and shakers. Moyo has got a melodius and appealing vocal that you have got no choice but to love her as well as her renditions.

The song comes in two verses. The chorus and pre-chorus were taken twice. The song is short and melodious, and she sang expressively to the beat. The artiste sang in Swahili; a Tanzania Language.

I love the video concept; very interesting to watch. It is a video different from the norm. The video complements the track as it reflects the mood of the artiste. The video quality is fantastic; great lightning and terrific costuming. Thumbs up to the video director for a good video.
