 (+LYRICS +MEANING+ TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: OKOTO BY BRODA SHAGGI FT ZLATAN “SEE GROOVE!”

Hmm! These celestians costume don go (has gone) through hell o, “sufferment” (permit me to use that word) in the hands of entertainers. Choi! The leader of the group must really be gentle; because, I have never seen the leader or any celestian come out to complain about the manner the costume is used by entertainers.

Hmm! Perhaps, they have handed all those who use the uniform, especially in an ungodly way to God. What y’all think?

 

WHAT IS THE SONG OKOTO BY BRO. SHAGGI FT ZLATAN ALL ABOUT

“Okoto” has no dictionary meaning. The word was however coined by the comedian and singer- Bro. Shaggi to mean “Dance style.”

In essence, Okoto is a type of dance just like Zanku, Alanta, Alingo, Azonto, Shoki and the rest. The artiste and all those that featured in the video were seen doing the “Okoto” dance. I must say that the dance is quite interesting to watch. In fact, I tried dancing the “Okoto” dance, and it was really fun.

Also, the song calls on people, especially ladies, to take to the dance floor and dance so well in “Okoto” dance style. There is also a part of the song that the artistes talk about being mesmerized and aroused by a lady’s body. They also call on the ladies to get down sexually if they want to receive money.

 

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses taken by Bro. Shaggi and Zlatan respectively. The chorus was taken thrice and the hook twice by Bro. Shaggi alone. This song has a sexual undertone. The following words “cucumber, nail” used in the song mean male organ.  

Some lines in the song depict women as sex lovers who want to keep having sex non stop or are never tired of sex.

“Oh baby take cucumber oh oh (Oh baby, take cucumber)
Your body gimme ginger (Your body gives me ginger)
You don turn me to maga (You have turned me to maga)
Amaka carry poka (Amaka carries poka)
Take cucumber till you taya (Take cucumber till you are tired)

Ko to le gbe owo yen wa joko le isho (Before you carry the money; you must sit on nail)
Ka to se ti ibi o ni pe kiss me (Before we got down, she said, kiss me)
O ni o’un o like okurin to le se (She said she doesn’t like a guy that can’t perform)
oni o’un like okurin t’o le se wakati  merin, mo ni kuku kill me (She says she doesn’t like a guy that can’t do four rounds; I said, just kill me)
Ah! Apayan assassin, lai se basketball ki la gba de round 13? (Killer! Assasin! When it is not basketball; how did till round 13?)”

 The artistes sang in pidgin and Yoruba; a Nigerian language. Their lyrics are not clear. The lyrics are also weak.  

Vocal: Their vocals were not clear; especially that of Zlatan. I was practically straining my ears to hear them. Kindly feel free to fill out the missing lines.

Melody: The beat is so tuneful. The beat is engaging. I am like; see groove o! It is a fast beat.The beat overwhelmed their vocals. Also, the beat is similar to that of “Show you the money beat;” a song released by wizkid in 2015. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drum and piano.

Take a gander at the lyrics below.
