I am trying to understand the arrangement of the song “Kpalanga.”  Which one is the chorus, verse, and pre-chorus? Any idea, kindly fill us in cause I just used my discretion to select which is which.

 

ABOUT THE SONG KPALANGA BY MR. EAZI

The word “Kpalanga” means to drive someone crazy. Kpalanga by Mr. Eazi is no doubt a love song whereby the artiste implores his love interest to consider as well as accept his proposal to be his lover. The artiste says this lady drives him crazy and heals his soul. He has uncontrollable feelings for her and wishes the girl would also return the love. He is ready to go the extra mile to prove his love for her. He is willing to empty his account as well as cry profusely to prove his love for her and make her accept him.

I love the cinematography; very nice and different from the norm. All that featured in the uniform were in Military uniform except the girl though. It would have been so nice if the song ended with the lady wearing the uniform also to prove that she already accepted his proposal.

I love the theme the artiste picked for the visual; soldiers shouldn’t only be seen as those that are rigid and engage in battle only but should be seen also as people that have emotions running through them and can love someone truly without any coercion. I love the beat also; not a slow tempo song which makes it one that people can dance to. However, the arrangement of the lyric is still confusing to me. Also, I feel the lyric could have been better. The artiste sang basically in pidgin and fused it with Yoruba; a Nigerian language. His vocal was clear and brought melody to the song. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drums, guitar, piano and percussion.

I muust say that I am feeling their choreography!
