(+LYRIC+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: ZLATAN- ROAD TO CDK: I CERTAINLY LOVE THE LYRICS, BUT WHAT DOES CDK MEAN?

Road to CDK is a track from Zlatan’s forthcoming album titled “Casanblan De Katamatophia.” However, the question that is yet to leave my lips is what “Casanblan De Katamatophia” really means? Is it a destination to a greater place or something? Any idea? Kindly share via the comment box…Thanks

Meanwhile, I have overtime noticed that Zlatan and Papisnoop are really forming a great bond. Are they related or they are just close friends?  Or is Papinoop signed to Zanku records? In all honesty, I really have no idea, if you do, kindly share via the comment box…

Also, lately, Zlatan has not been chanting “Kapaichumarimarichopaco.” What happen na?

WHAT IS THE SONG ROAD TO CDK BY ZLATAN ALL ABOUT

I can’t really decipher the use of CDK by the artiste, but in this song, the artiste talks about various things, and also “brags” about himself.  I think bragging is typical of rappers; anyway, this na im time (As in, this is his time)

In this song, Zlatan brags about being the best rapper, and how no living person can occupy his spot. He also brags about how his presence in the industry made other rappers flee (Now, that has been over-used by reigning rappers in the past)

Rapper to ju rapper lo (Rapper that is greater than other rappers)
Anybody bo si o ma ku (Anyone that tries to occupy the spot would die)
Oga ni Daniel mi je si lion eyin k’ema wo’ju (Daniel is a king………., always look at faces)

Mo le won kaba-kaba (I sent them away quickky)
Se wan yama-yama (Did them anyhow)”

He also brags about his fearlessness, and his capability to handle those that hate on him or wish his downfall

 “Mo le won kaba-kaba (I sent them away quickly)
Se wan yama-yama (Did them anyhow)”

He also brags about how he would never get tired of singing because he has about 2 billion songs yet to be released. He says he would never go down like his favorite football team- Barcelona…

“Relegation kole si loro Bárca (Anything relegation can not be associated to Barca)
Tin ba ma binu tan, aya iya yin gan a ja (If I get intensely mad; your mothers would be so scared)”

“Orin melo ni mo shi drop ninu (How many songs have I dropped)
Two billion songs ti moni ti e de tin pariwo? (From the 2 billion songs that I have that you are already shouting)”

Away from his bragging, he encourages people to keep being the best at what they do and never give up; ’cause one day, their breakthrough would surely come. Finally, he encourages people to stay strong regardless of what they may be currently facing, he also spurs the heartbroken ones, to stay strong.


Lyrically: I really don’t understand the arrangement of this song, but the lyrics are very punchy, clarifying and detailed . The lyrics are not interrelated but are interesting.

I love the fact that he clarified what he meant by “All man for himself” in this song. People felt all man for himself means don’t help people just help yourself. But according to Zlatan, it means that since people don’t readily want to help, help yourself to a certain degree till that right help comes your way…

“All man for himself
All man for himself no mean say (All man for himself does not mean)
Make you no help your friend oh (That you should not help your friend)
The all man for himself mean say (All man for himself means that)
If you no help yourself nobody ready to help you (If you dont helpbyourself, nobody would be ready to help you)
If you wan make them help you (If you want people to help you)
Make you help yourself to some certain stage before them help you (Help youself to a certain degree)”

The lyrics are quite attacking too. I think the latter part of the lyrics was unnecessary; ewo ni gbobgo ebu? (what is all the insult for?)

“O mo world president abi eti e di? (You dont know world president? Or are you deaf?)
Won need lati ko sinu paper fun e ko to mo? (iya e) (Do they need to write it in paper before you know)
Abi oju e fo? (Oshamo) (Or, are you blind?) (You know)”

The artiste sang in pidgin and Yoruba; a Nigerian language. At some point, he was sounding like late musician-Dagrin. What Y’all think?

Vocal: His vocal was clear, convincing, and confident. He was consistent with his vocal quality.

Melody: I love this melody; very tuneful. There was no consistency with the flow of rhythm. The major instruments used to compose this song include drum and piano.

Take a gander at the lyric below.

Kindly feel free to correct the lyrics and translation. Also share your thought on the song with other esteemed readers of Ogefash Photo Blog. Thank you
