Asake “Ototo” Song Breakdown

In verse 1, Asake sings about a continuous increase in his life and prays never to need anything he desires in life.

In verse 2, he prays that God blesses his handwork. He shows confidence in becoming wealthy in life. He believes respect and recognition is only given to those with money. He wants to be among those highly recognized and respected.

In the chorus, Asake sings about people bearing their burdens. According to the singer, we came to this life l’ototo as in separately (Just like the title of the song). He says his burden weighs too much and as such can’t possibly have the strength to accommodate someone else’s burden.’

In the post-chorus, he spurs people to keep pushing till they achieve success in their endeavors.

Asake “Ototo” Meaning

Asake in the song “Ototo,” encourages people to keep doing what they are doing and never give up till they become successful. He advises people to bear their burdens and not expect people to carry their burdens for them because everybody came to this life separately, and so has a burden he or she is carrying. In essence, this automatically weighs them down and makes it difficult to be burden carriers for others.
