(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: BLOW BY WIZKID AND BLAQ JERZEE “IT SEEMS LIKE THE LADIES ARE BLOWING SOMETHING ELSE IN WIZKID AND BLAQ JERZEE’S BODY ASIDE THE TRUMPET!

IG @ogefashblog.

Don’t be deceived; “Blow your trumpet” in this song has no correlation with the real meaning of the idiom. The idiom “Blow your trumpet” means to proclaim/ reveal or show off one’s achievement in a pompous way.  Blow your trumpet in this song seems to be associated with sex; it seems like the ladies are not just blowing their trumpets as regards the idiom definition, but are also blowing something in Blaq Jerzee and Wizkid’s body. What do you think it is?

If you ask me; I would say their prick… View some lines below that reveal this …

“Blow my cassava yo, oh oh oh
We go run the matter inside the keke na pe pe”

“I beg you do me small small
I beg you do me no be rush”


If you are one person that listens to music a lot, then you are already familiar with the slang “cassava” that means dick.

WHAT IS THE SONG “BLOW” BY WIZKID ABOUT

The single word “Blow” means to play or blast. Blow your trumpet means to play the musical instrument- trumpet.

I really can’t relate the title of the song to the theme of the track. The song talks about two ladies that the artistes are interested in. They plan on telling the ladies how they feel and hope that the ladies do not turn them down. The artistes also reveal the effect the ladies have on them and how they don’t always feel like moving an inch whenever they are around them. These ladies have won their hearts, make them relaxed, turn them on and all they just feel like doing is make love to them; even if it is inside a tricycle (Napep) View this in the line below…

“Blow me like you drink sapele water
Body come dey do me jeje jeje
Run the matter inside the keke na pe pe”


The lyrics look plain, but I want to assure you that they are not; have a coded sexual tone. There are two verses; Blaq Jerzee took the first verse while Wizkid took the second verse. What pre-dominated the song was the chorus which was taken about three times. The major instruments used in the song include the trumpet, drum and piano.

About the video? I am still trying to figure what to make out of the video concept…

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Over the bar in this song means that someone is unable to achieve something or someone’s plan failed.

Maka Chukwu is an Igbo word in Nigeria that means because of God; Sempe means to relax, be calm; Jo is a Yoruba word in Nigeria that means “Dance”

Take a gander at the lyrics below…
