(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: TAKE BY TIMI DAKOLO FT OLAMIDE “IS TIMI DAKOLO EMULATING THE JONAS BROTHERS STYLE?”

IG @ogefashblog.

If you are a great fan of American pop band-Jonas Brothers (Formed by three brothers),  then, you would for sure know that the band love to feature their various wives in their music videos.

Same thing happened in this “Take” video; Timi Dakolo featured his wife- Busola Dakolo whom he married in the year 2012. Although, Timi has been away from the music scene for a while and his comeback sees him feature his wife for the first time in his video; if he subsequently features her in other videos, then he his emulating the Jonas Brothers style. What y’all think?

Meanwhile, If you are an African, Nigerian precisely, you would recollect that the duo were all over news-media some months back following rape allegations made by Busola Dakolo against COZA’s  (The common wealth of Zion Assembly) pastor- Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

ABOUT THE SONG TAKE BY TIMI DAKOLO FT OLAMIDE

Take is a Nigerian love song by Timi Dakolo featuring rapper Olamide. In this song, the artistes professed their love to a lady (Acted by Busola Dakolo) that has a strong effect on them. They surrendered their life to her, as well as vow their commitment and loyalty to only her . This lady is beautiful and is well endowed. They are willing to please her financially, materially; do anything to make her take them serious and love them back at all cost. According to the artistes, the kind of love they share with their significant other can’t be compared with others; theirs is unique. They are even ready to die if the lady turns down their love.

The song comes in two verses, the first was taken by Timi Dakolo while the second verse was taken by Olamide. Timi Dakolo alone took the chorus, which was sung thrice and was also the most melodious part in the song. The lyrics are heart-warming and also flowed well with the beat. However, at some point, their vocals were not clear enough.

Timi Dakolo sang both in pidgin and standard English, while Olamide sang in Yoruba; a Nigerian Language. The major instruments used in composing the song include drums, piano and percussion. The video complements the track and it is interesting to watch.

Timi Dakolo had this witty facial expression which also made the video lively. By the way, as regards directing, I must commend the director. I have watched a couple of Frizzle and Brizzle videos (Gospel videos in particular) and they are terrific; so I was not expecting anything less in this video.

Take a gander at the lyrics below
