ABOUT THE SONG “OWO” BY CDQ

The word “Owo” is a Nigerian Yoruba word that means “Money.” Owo se koko, when translated to English means “Money is important.

The artiste used this song to emphasize the importance of money. CDQ reveals how much he desires money which is the reason he doesn’t mix business with pleasure or do anything that would puncture or affect his chances of getting money. He further says the way money is entering his account is in-explainable, all he knows is that he has sufficient money to share with people, pop champagne, throw parties and tour the world. He enjoins people to work hard if they desire to be rich “No hustle, no struggle” he says.

He also talks about haters monitoring his success as well as people pretending to like him; especially those that are quick to like his Instagram pictures.

 

This “OWO” tune by CDQ is quite similar to Ikechukwu’s old tune titled ” Now it’s time.”  It also has the same intro with Olamide’s song titled “Woske” What ya think?

The song “OWO” comes in two verses. The pre-chorus and chorus were taken thrice each. The song is quite interesting, but his vocal was not clear at some point. The artiste sang in pidgin and “Yoruba” a Nigerian Language. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drum and piano.

Take a gander at the lyrics below

You no dey do padi padi for business
When I say I no well na money sickness
Never take my kindness for weakness
Many love emoji on IG na pretence
They have been watching what am gonna do
After dinner telling me bonjour
Awon ti mo gboju le xxxxxxxx too (Those I look unto…)
The scar wey you put on me cannot undo
I follow my mind proper
If you think say you pass my class then drop out
I just wanna be rich, pop champagne with my ultimate till we pass out
I don’t care who you are, where you from, and no matter what you do
Ife so wa po xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Love united us…)
Make we share money together that’s what we do

PRE- CHORUS

Alubarika is fortune
Oh need eh

J’aiye mi gently bi eni to gba wire
Fans holla sodi ke ke
All my ladies dem dey pepper
Everything soft efo tete
Eyin gan teri si egege
Now am into the next one
I build for the fun, I build for my home base
Proper ibile Omo naija ni mi (I am a proper Nigerian child; son of the soil)
Ewa agoyin; I be homemade (Matched beans; I am homemade)
Change your style’s allowed
Change your swag’s allowed
Change your man’s allowed
But don’t change xxxxxxxxxx for the loud

PCHORUS

Whose gat the money?
Bring am make we share am
Any language money dey speak we must to learn am
