(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: ISHEYEN BY NAIRA MARLEY “THE MEANING OF ISHEYEN BY NAIRA MARLEY +WHAT’S THIS?”

IG @ogefashblog.

In the

voice of Naira Marley in the 2 minutes 20 seconds of the song, I am asking “What is this?” As in, what kind of yansh (ass) is this? Ahah kilode? (As in what is it?) I couldn’t even concentrate as I was watching the video for review; the yansh (ass) was just a strong obstruction to my concentration. Like seriously, that yansh (ass) is truly big; I think it is even bigger than the yansh (ass) of the ladies Olamide used in the song pawon. What y’all think? View the review of Pawon by Olamide here https://ogefash.reviews/2019/09/25/lyricstranslationmeaning-music-review-pawon-by-olamide/

But I really need to ask, where do these artistes get these ladies with big ass from? Is there a special location called “Opotoyi zone” that they live, because, in my area, I don’t see ladies with extra large ass. Even if they hide it underneath their cloth, I would still know nipe opotoyi sugbo aso lo fi bo like Naira Marley sang in the song Opotoyi (View the review here) or is it some camera effect to their ass? Perhaps it is the latter, what ya think?

Okay, that was just me being a Marlian, so to the main review below …

The way ladies are portrayed in Today’s Nigerian Music Videos is quite appalling, especially in Naira Marley’s videos. Again, I would have to disagree with Wande Coal and Naeto C’s song “Ashewo” where they vindicated these video vixens from immoral acts. View some of the lines in the song ashewo below…

“Just because she dance like this doesn’t mean that u should diss, just because she dance like this doesn’t mean that u should tease and the way she boogie down, it makes the guys dey come around. I’m sure u wanna hit it too… hold your thoughts my brother. E no mean say the girl na ashawo”

There is no way a lady would portray herself in this manner and waywardness would not enter into her. Even if she was not wayward initially, after such character portrayed in the video, she would eventually become wayward. What y’all think?

ABOUT THE SONG ISHEYEN BY NAIRA MARLEY

The word Isheyen is a Yoruba word in Nigeria that means “That work”. Naira Marley said “Mo fe ma je Isheyen” which when translated to English means “I want to be eating that work.” In essence, the lady’s body is the “good work” that he wants to be eating. “Eating” in the context of this song means to be having sex with a lady.

This song is obviously a sexual song whereby the artiste eulogizes ladies with big ass and calls them “Ise” which means work. He expresses his desire to have a taste of that work sexually. This, Naira Marley made obvious from the latter part of the video where he and some chefs held their cutlery and gathered around the lady with the big ass.

I kind of have an issue with the part Naira Marley sang “Man don’t pay for shit. Man get girls for free”

Really, is this how some men see women especially Naira Marley? Girls are now worthless! Or what exactly was the point he was trying to make in the 2 minutes 40 seconds of the song?. Okay, I get it, all women are Puta right? I think Naira Marley should just tell the world that he loves to sleep with women that are puta. Meanwhile, you can view the review for Puta here https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiN1_7L9evnAhV1sHEKHeT8CBgQFjABegQIAhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fogefash.reviews%2F2019%2F09%2F25%2Flyricstranslationmeaning-music-review-puta-by-naira-marley-this-puta-song-means-girls-are-prostitutes-this-is-an-idi-as-in-ass-display-vide%2F&usg=AOvVaw3_h0a6anGvYkHOF6jmInPH

The song “Isheyen” is a fast tempo beat. The beat, especially the intro is however similar to that of the beat for “Mama” by Kizz Daniel. For the latter part of the video, Naya Effectz visuals used the same concept with that of “Bon Appetit” by Katy Perry.

The song “Isheyen” has two verses and the chorus was taken thrice. The entire lyrics are lewd. Naira Marley sang in English and Yoruba, a Nigerian language. His vocal never changes; he has his own unique vocal, maybe I should call it the “Marley” vocal. At some point though, his vocal was not clear. The rhythm to Isheyen flows well and there was consistency in the style of rhythm. The major instruments used in the song include drums, piano and percussion.

Take a gander at the lyrics below.
