 (+LYRICS+ MEANING+ TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: ONE NIGHT STAND BY IBRAAH FT HARMONIZE “ARE WOMEN ONLY PERFECT FOR ONE-NIGHT STAND?”

Honestly, after listening to this song, you would think Harmonize owns the song, but it’s actually Ibraah’s. I think Harmonize vocal really dominated the song. What y’all think?

Anyway, moving on…

So, like I asked in the caption of this article, I am asking the question again; are women-only perfect for one-night stand?

If you say capital “NO”; Harmonize and Ibraah certainly don’t think so. Below is what they feel about women…

WHAT IS THE SONG ONE-NIGHT STAND BY IBRAAH FT HARMONIZE ABOUT?

In the context of this song, a “one-night stand” is a “no-string-attached” sexual relationship with someone for just one night without any intention of keeping contact with the person or communicating with the person in the future.

The song “One night stand” has a theme of “Relinquish love.” The artistes are probably suffering from Philophobia (Philophobia means the fear of falling in love) which is affecting the way they see women, and their relationship with women.

 In the song, the artistes attached a woman’s “true love” for a man on the condition of his wealth and acquisition.

In essence, according to them, women don’t love unconditionally but conditionally. For that reason, they believe love doesn’t exist and women are better off as sexual partner or better off as one-night stand, where both parties can just have sexual romps for a night with no strings attached or no emotional commitment, and then move on with their individual lives without future communications. In the end, both get what they want; “sex and money”

 

 

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses, taken by Ibraah and Harmonize respectively. The song follows a particular sequence. The pre-chorus and chorus were taken twice. The artistes sang in Swahili but fused with some words in English.

Vocal: Harmonize’s vocal and performance overshadowed that of Ibraah’s. But really, there is really no track that Harmonize features in that is just not melodious. He was born to sing.

Moving on, they have got clear and appealing to the ear vocals. There was also consistency in their vocal quality.

Melody: Melodic!  The chorus was the most melodic part of the entire song. The song comes in a mid-tempo beat. The major instruments used to compose the song include drum, piano, and harp. The visual complements the track.

Take a gander at the lyrics below..

LYRICS TO ONE NIGHT STAND BY IBRAAH FT HARMONIZE

INTRO (IBRAH)

Ooh oh oh oh

 It’s Bonga
Lalala

Ayete ye eh
Konde Boy

VERSE ONE (IBRAAH)

Mi baba yangu sio magufuli
Ama kenyata Kenya
Nikudanganye Mugabe
Ni wuongo sio sawa

Hata nyota yangu mi ni ya sufuri
Sio wa kupata tena
Kula yangu tuma zabe
Sina mchongo ka chawa

PRE CHORUS

What I believe, what I believe
No money no love
Yupo ulompaga moyo
Akauga vipande

Nimeumbwa na wivu
Mi na wivu moyo wangu sio mbovu
Hakuwaga mchoyo
Kutwa miguru upande

Kwanza mapenzi yamezaliwa Bombay
Masonge kwenye majani (Aye eh)
Utaweza mwana wa bonde
Amemshinda sharukani (Aye eh)

Agiza nyama na pombe
Ah tulewe twende chumbani (Aye eh)
Nikupe mhogo wa jang’ombe
Kisigino kiwe begani

CHORUS

IBRAAH

Baby all I need mi siwezagi kuzunguka
One night, one night, one night stand
Yani nipe nikupe kabla hakujapambazuka
One night (Eh eh eh), one night, one night stand

 (KONDE BOY)

Sikuhizi kupenda penda kumepitwa na muda
One night, one night, one night stand
Yani akikupa kula akisusa mwingine atakuja
One night, one night, one night stand

VERSE 2 (HARMONIZE)

Usijidanganye umemkamata
Mtoto m’jini
Magoli mengi samata
Hata uzame chumvini

Ila kuna waze wa migodi
Hawagongagi hodi
Ujifanye mjanja unachunga
Ila ndo wanalipa kodi

Utadanganya anaenda jogging
Kumbe yuko lodging
Mwenzako anajaza mimba
Uko gym unajaza body

PRE CHORUS

What I believe, what I believe
No money no love
Yupo ulompaga moyo
Akauga vipande

Nimeumbwa na wivu
Mi na wivu moyo wangu sio mbovu
Hakuwaga mchoyo
Kutwa miguru upande

Kwanza mapenzi yamezaliwa Bombay
Masonge kwenye majani (Aye eh)
Utaweza mwana wa bonde
Amemshinda sharukani (Aye eh)

Sio unakunywa tu mapombe
Unajua anayelipa nani (Aye eh)
Twende nkakupe gu la nombe
Ukaugulie nyumbani chi!

 

CHORUS

Baby all I need mi siwezagi kuzunguka
One night, one night, one night stand
Yani nipe nikupe kabla hakujapambazuka
One night, one night, one night stand

Siku hizi kupenda penda kumepitwa na muda
One night, one night, one night stand
Yani akikupa kula akisusa mwingine atakuja
One night, one night, one night stand

BEATZ

OUTRO (IBRAAH AND HARMONIZE)

Asa baby nipe (Nipe nikupe)
Acha za kungata makucha (Nipe nikupe)
Mara unapandisha unashusha (Nipe nikupe)
Mida inakwenda (Tumalizane leo leo)

Eh mbuzi kafa kwa bucha (Nipe nikupe)
Mbona sa unayeyusha (Nipe nikupe)
Ukichelewa nitasusa (Nipe nikupe)
Hebu soge kwa chamber (Tumalizane leo leo)

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF ONE NIGHT STAND (PROVIDED BY DEUCIE MERCIE @deuciemercie)

Hmm o o (It’s Bonga) Sleepy? Of course not

Please Boy, My father is not Magufuli or Kenyatta or from Kenya.

Let me deceive you Mugabe; It’s a lie

Even my star doesn’t have anything, It’s not about getting anymore

Eat my own send off I don’t have a lick like lice

 

What I believe, what I believe, no money no love

There is one who has broken my heart and divided it into pieces

I’m jealous but my heart is not evil, It’s not greedy, punches on the side

 

First the will to love is born in Bombay Mask on the leaves (Aye eh)

You will be able to conquer son of the valley …Overpowered (Aye eh)

Order meat and alcohol Ah let us go to the bedroom (Aye eh)

I will give you shellfish

Your heel should be on my shoulder.

CHORUS

Baby all I need is you. I can’t move around.

One night, one night, one nightstand.

Let me give it to you, before daybreak.

One night, one night, one nightstand (Please Boy)

Nowadays love is outdated.

One night, one night, one nightstand.

 That is, he gives you food to eat another will come.

One night touch, one night, one nightstand.

 

 I say baby give me (Give me)

Stop biting your nails (Give it to me)

As soon as you raise it down (Give it to me)

 Time is running out (Give it to me, let’s finish today)

 Eh the goat dies for the buck (Give it to me)

Why do you watch the clock (Give it to me)

If you are late I will remove (Let me give you)

Let’s move to the room (Let me give it, let’s end it today)
