(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- ONE MILLI BY DAVIDO “THE MEANING OF THIS SONG + IS THIS THE ‘WIFE FEATURE’ DAVIDO WAS REFERRING TO?

IG@ogefashblog.
If you are a Nigerian, then

you would be familiar with the story of these lovebirds Davido (From Yoruba Tribe, Nigeria) and Chioma (From Igbo Tribe, Nigeria).

One milli which is the short form of one million is a song by Davido which features his heartthrob~ Chioma.

Chioma is Davido’s third baby mama, but the only baby mama he ended up getting engaged to. The video of Davido’s engagement to Chioma is what was used for “One milli video.” Now, let no one tell Chioma that Davido is not “hers” yet, #winks
It is also important to note that Davido has assured Chioma of a very luxurious wedding this 2020. Chioma is also the only woman in Davido’s life that was able to give birth to a male child (Ifeanyi) for Davido. Davido’s first two baby mamas gave birth to a girl each.

The song “One milli” is a love song whereby Davido emphasizes his willingness to pay whatever it would cost to finally have his one and only heartthrob Chioma as his wife. He says even if it costs 1 milli dollars to have her as his wife; he would pay with no hesitation.
He also prays for everlasting joy and sweetness in their union. He prays that their union would be good and last forever, and that the desire of those that wish them evil or want to separate them, will not come to pass. He vows to stand by her and support her dreams forever.

Prior to the release of Davido’s album “A Good Time”, he told the populace that the album would feature his wife- Chioma. It is not clear if her appearance in the “One Milli” video is the “Wife feature” Davido was referring to, cause I thought he was referring to her vocals. What y’all think?
Anyway, about the video, it has different feels~ there is first of all the Carnival feel where lots of people, especially the elders are gathered in traditional wears (Iro and buba, gele, blouse and wrappers) to celebrate the lovebirds during their engagements. The video also has another kind of setting aside the carnival setting but I can’t place right now. I think I prefer the latter setting to the carnival setting. Although it was their engagement video they used, but there was really nothing fascinating in that carnival. So na only argbo (old) people full the wedding? Where are the familiar faces? Where are Davido and Chioma’s family? They are not all old na? Or is this just a camouflage to make people think they are really engaged? What y’all think?
The song “One milli” has two verses but the verse 1 is lengthier than the verse 2. The chorus and pre-chorus were taken twice. Davido’s vocal was clear and convincing. The song has a fast beat. The artiste was consistent with the style of rhythm. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drums, piano and shakers.
GIRL COME AND CHOP MY CHOP MY DODO (DOLAPO)
Chop my dodo: Was Davido referring to money or his male organ because this artistes always love to fuse in slangs that relate to sex in their songs.
Take a gander at the lyrics below…
