Love Nwantiti which is an Igbo word in Nigeria means “Small Love.” It is a song by chocolate city singer- Ckay, and he features Nigerian singer- Joeboy and and Ghanaian highlife and afrobeat singer- Kuami Eugene.
This is no doubt a love song. In the song, the artistes talk about the effect a particular lady they love has on them. This lady excites them and dominates their thoughts. They pledge their loyalty and commitment to her. They also vow to take care of her financially.
Lyrically: The song comes in three verses taken by Ckay, Joeboy and Kuami Eugene respectively. The pre-chorus was taken twice while the chorus was taken thrice. The lyrics are averagely written. Also, some of the lyrics have sexual undertones.
Vocal: They have appealing vocals; but at some point, their vocals were not clear enough. The artistes sang majorly in pidgin but fused it with few Igbo words like “Nwantiti, yem, gbaka mi si…” which have already been translated in the lyrics.
Melody: This song is very interesting to the ears. It is a mid-tempo song. The major instruments used to compose the song include drums, piano and guitar. The rhythm flows well with the beat. There was also cosistency with the style of rhythm.
My baby my valentine
Girl na you dey make my temperature dey rise
If you leave me I go die I swear
You are like the attitude I need to survive
