(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW  “ LIKE THIS LIKE THAT” BY MR P “MOST NIGERIANS DON’T KNOW GOOD SONGS; ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ONLY #PONGILAH SONGS…

IG @ogefashblog.

As far as am concerned, the song “Like dis like dat” by Mr.P (di) is classic just like the name of his record label “P classic records”. People are just underestimating Peter Okoye aka Mr. P; find out yourself here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KibRY6oM2xo

People have gotten so used to the Psquare’s voice in Rudeboy and the Rudeeboy’s voice in Psquare that anytime Mr. P sings, it seems it is still not enough, and that iis not so true. The most annoying thing is that some people have not viewed this video, yet they already have a review for the song; “awon set”…. ; what should I call them now? Oya give yourselves name in the comment box…

You can WhatsApp us no on +2348087261006; we love to hear from you

In all honesty; people need to cool  down and remember that this is not Psquare but Mr.P and his own style of music which is classic. Why must you, yes you always want to be tuned to songs that promote nothing but noise? Why are you looking for only pongilah songs. It is high time we realized that it is not by pongilah noise or by unripe pawpaw noise; but it can actually be “Like this like that” style of music. Americans don’t make noise but their songs get millions and billions of views. These songs are sung and grooved to by all including Nigerians talk about songs like Panini by Lil Nas X, Yummy by Justin Bieber, Lose you to love you by Selena Gomez, Rare by Selena Gomez, Truth hurts by Lizzo, Bad guy by Billie Eilish, Beyonce’s, Rihana’s, Jenifer Lopez’s, Eminem’s, Jay z’s , Cardi B, Nicki Minaj,  Ed Sheeran, and many other songs by various artistes.

Mr P is creating his own style of music regardless of the fact that some Nigerians just want to stick and be stuck to the same noisy style of music; this Mr. P’s style is really so cool for me.

Take a gander at the lyrics below before the main review…

THE REVIEW

But this Mr. P too like drama sha. The song “like dis like dat” has an intro drama as well as an ending drama which both took about 1 minute 20 seconds from the entire track which lasted for about 4 minutes 30 seconds.

But wait o, why did Mr.P switch topics; he was initially telling Selam (The lady he featured in the video) about the house he intends to buy and the need for her to see the house; before I knew it, he was hurrying her up to a certain place. I was even thinking it was to the place where he intends to buy the house, but it wasn’t. He instead took her to the club.  So what really happened there? 

How come there was no playback of his last track like he does in all his new songs. Wait o, what was that his last song? Ekelebe abi Karma; oh thank God he did not do a playback of the song because that song was just not it for me.

Oh, I just remembered; he has released another song after Karma titled Too late (Dope song). So, how come there was no playback/background tune of the song?

VIEW THE DRAMA DIALOGUE BELOW

INTRO DRAMA DIALOGUE

Peter: We are going to have an amazing night; so babe, trust me you need to see this house. I was thinking about buying it. What do you think? It is lovely, you gonna love it. Hey, what’s going on, what’s wrong with you?

Selam: Do we have to go tonight? Can we not go? I just have a bad feeling about this.

Peter (Phone rings) Hold on

Peter (On phone with a friend): Hello, guys what’s up? You guys are there already. Okay, we are on our way, we are coming, we are coming

Peter (Now talking to Selam): Get ready darling, it’s okay. Common I will handle this.  Okay, hurry up

 

ENDING DRAMA DIALOGUE

Selam: Baby we gonna go. I am scared. I am seeing faces. I don’t wanna be here no more

Peter: Everyone here has a mask

Selam: I don’t wanna be here no more

Peter: common

Selam (Walks away)

Peter: Hey (Guyz I am coming)

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The lyrics are well written and are in array. Both verse 1 and 2 have four lines each. The pre-chorus and chorus were taken thrice each. Mr.P sang in standard English; no single word in pidgin was used. The words used to compose the lyrics are everyday words that do not expand viewers’ vocabulary. The lyrics are meaningful but too plain.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In verse 1, “The love wey I get for you” Mr.P expresses his love for his lover. He shows his readiness to take care of her and buy her whatever she desires in life. He  says this lover excites him and that he would never part ways with her.

In the pre-chorus, “I’m in love with you my baby” he emphasizes how profound his love for her is. He says he can’t get her off his mind as he thinks about her often.

In the chorus “Like this like that. I like it like that like this” it is not really clear what exactly he wants, but if I am to guess, Mr P used the phrase “Like this, like that” to emphasize the strong effect his lover has on him, what he desires fro her and how he wants it.

In verse 2, “I can’t get enough of you”  Mr. P says he can’t get tired of this his lover. He desires more of her. She blows his mind and he can’t control or hide his immense feelings for her. He is convinved that they are meant to be together.

WHAT IS THE SONG “LIKE DIS LIKE DAT” BY MR.P ABOUT?

The song is basically a love song, The artiste expresses  his profound love to a lady who has a strong effect on him.

COSTUME

Cool

LOCATION

The video was shot indoors. They used a club and a reort..

SOUND

This is an original tune different from  Nigeria’s conventional style of music. The instrumentals were not varied. The major instruments used in the song include drums and keyboard which are the usual instruments used in composing most songs in Nigeira. This song is tuneful especially the chorus part. The music is also well arranged and the rhythm flows well. There was also consistency in the style of rhythm.

VIDEO

Does the compliment the track? Hold on a bit; I would be right back in a jify
