(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- OSO GA EME BY PHYNO “HERE IS THE MEANING OF THIS SONG!” + I LOVE THIS PARTICULAR LINE “NWANNEM, BIKO GBAWA DOOR!”

IG @ogefashblog.

“Nwannem, biko gbawa door,” an Igbo word, which translates to “Brother/Sister, please break the door” may actually be my best line in the entire lyrics of this song. What’s yours? Share with us via the comment box…

Ehen, so this song “Oso ga me” song e, I wish Phyno did the English version; all the lines are punchy and interesting. May be he should do the English version, what y’all think? He should o; else, other musicians would just steal from his creativity and sing it in English.

You can Now WhatsApp us on+2348087261006; we love to hear from you!

 

So, I sat with my mum- MAONE (+2348160799747) for hours trying to translate all the lines of this song. Nwannem, after the first-day-translation my mum assisted me with, other days, she was just doing; oso ga me…#Winks

But I was also doing “Oso ga me” with her to wherever she ran to; and when I finally caught up with her, she decided to stop running. She said she was going to assist with the remaining translations another day which I am still waiting for till today. In essence, the vocabulary used by the artiste in the song “Oso ga me” is not the every-day vocabulary used by Igbos. This is deep!

So, to all the Ogefash Stylists and lovers (easterners and non- easterners); sorry if you are unable get all the translations for the song “Oso ga me” by Phyno from us at Ogefash Photo Blog. And, if you feel some of the translations need to be corrected, hey, kindly grab your keypad and feel free to correct the lyrics via the comment box. We would gladly appreciate that…

 

WHAT IS THE SONG OSO GA ME BY PHYNO ABOUT?

Oso ga me is an Igbo word in Nigeria which translates to “Running would suffice”. This particular track is from Phyno’s 2019 album titled “Deal with it.”

Phyno in the song “Oso ga me” advises people to take to their heels when they come across some set of people whom he mentioned all though the lyrics. He advised people to scram when they come across pretenders, liars, selfish people, fraudsters, fake prophets, ritualists, kidnappers, robbers, proud people, people living fake lives, those who believe that people should use their bodies to get what they have, and other condemnable acts in the society.

Hence, Phyno used the word “Oso ga me” in the entire chorus to emphasize the need for people to really “Run,” view below…

CHORUS
(Guy) Oso ga eme (nwanne wa wa) (Running would suffice)
Oso ga eme, oso ga eme boy (wa wa) (Yeah) (Running would suffice, running would suffice)
Oso ga eme (nwanne wa wa) (Running would suffice)
Oso ga eme, oso ga eme kwa guy (wa wa) (Running would suffice, running would suffice)

 

Lyrically: Phyno really had much to say. The song comes in 4 verses; they  are punchy, meaningful and educative. The chorus was taken four times. The artiste sang in Igbo, a Nigerian language spoken mostly by the Easterners in Nigeria. The lyrics are also in sequence.

Nwanne wa wa means My brother/sister run run

Wa wa means run run

Vocal: At least, Phyno is not among those musicians that go out of tune. He was consistent with his vocal quality. His vocal is clear and convincing.

Melody: So original and tuneful. It is a fast tempo beat. The major instruments used to compose the song include drums and piano. He was consistent with the rhythm style.

In as much as I love the song, the video quality is quite low. But I love their performances all through the song.

 

Take a gander at the lyrics below…
