(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- CHINEDUM BY MERCY CHINWO “HERE IS THE MEANING OF THIS SONG!”+ WHY WERE THEY DANCING LIKE…

IG @ogefashblog

I love this song! I actually just yelled that. I love everything about this song; the track itself, the visual, the costumes, the choreography (the latter part though) and Mercy’s performance. This is another song that my neighbor succeeded in playing into the catalog of songs to be reviewed on Ogefash Photo blog. God! My neighbor wouldn’t just let this song stop playing. She played this song repeatedly likewise “Omekannaya” by the same artiste.

WHAT IS THE SONG CHINEDUM BY MERCY CHINWO ABOUT?

Depending on the way you want to phrase the grammar, but Chinedum is an Igbo word in Nigeria that literally means God is going with me or directing me or leading me.

The song basically talks about the importance of having the backing of God as well as being directed by God in life in order not to live a life of vanity.  View in verse 1…

“Except you build a house
The builders build in vain
Me I go follow you dey go”

Also, Mercy Chinwo appreciates God for elevating her in her career and in all areas of life. She also shows gratitude to God for always directing her in all ways. According to her, God’s direction has taken her higher. God’s direction makes all things work for her good. His direction has made her successful.

The artiste points out the great benefit of God’s direction in her life. She says there is promotion, progress in business, an abundance of wealth and an increase in greatness on all sides. Because she is following God’s direction, she is not working in vain and she doesn’t struggle for anything; all things fall in place for her.

She finally says her life is for the glory of God!

The lyrics to this song are meaningful and inspiring. It, however, doesn’t follow a particular sequence. The artiste sang in standard English and pidgin but fused it with the Igbo word “Chinedum” which means “God directs me or God is following me”

Mercy has a very appealing vocal. The beat to this song is melodic also. The major instruments used to compose the song include drums, piano, and shakers. I love the video; she was really in high spirits. She was expressive all through the song. I love the video concept; so different from the norm and very interesting to watch. The video has got high quality and great lightning. The location where the video was shot is beautiful. No wonder it has over 8 million views on YouTube. The video which was shot in a desolate place; a desert, depicts a lady who went on fasting and prayer and spiritual meditation on a mountain.

I love their choreography in the 3 minutes 42 seconds of the video. I prefer the latter choreography to the one done at the beginning of the song; that choreography though, dika nke ndi ogbanje (looks like those of possessed spirit) What y’all think? Or they are simply possessed by the holy spirit? #Winks.

By the way, was that Judiikay I sighted at the 3 minutes 52 seconds of the song and in the latter part of the song? Oh, I love you Judiikay! View the review of more than gold here…in the latter part of the song.

JUST WONDERING

The way Mercy Chinwo did her mouth though at the 3 minutes 42 seconds of the video…

Lovely video, high quality, beautiful locations!
