(+LYRICS) ACTION BY DBANJ “DBANJ CAN’T AFFORD THIS ROLLS ROYCE GHOST; FAKE LIFE!”

What! Like seriously, this is one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive music videos that I have seen in the country for year 2018. It is typical of Dbanj to always release videos that are of terrific standard not minding the finance it would gulp. And some ill wishers, bad belle people, unfriendly friends, friendly enemies would cross their legs, fold their arms and say “Dbanj can’t afford this Royce Rolls Ghost, he just went to borrow it since he doesn’t sing constantly like before; fake life.” Those people are myopic, the guy is made whether he sings or not.

Infact, before you google Rolls Royce Ghost, let me brief you on it. It is actually worth close to 150 million Naira if not more (Oops, did I exaggerate? It is sha expensive). Infact, after watching this video and researching about most items that I saw in the video including the Rolls Royce Ghost, I actually dreamt that I bought the vehicle and was also driving it; lol, aint joking though. You see what Action by Dbanj has caused now and probably for other people as well.

So, the main idea behind the song “Action”; Dbanj doesn’t need to keep reiterating what he intends to do, he just goes ahead to do it “Action”. Yeah, action speaks louder than words; “If you want to shoot, shoot, shoot don’t talk” you heard that- from the real action guy, The Koko Master, “Dbanj”. Feel the lyrics to the song below

THE REVIEW

Okay, the song “Action” by Dbanj is another not too lengthy Nigerian song, it lasted for 2 minutes 55 seconds.

Yemi Alade’s song titled “Issokay” so far is the shortest Nigerian song with the duration of 2 minutes 30 seconds. (Issokay has been reviewed also on Ogefash blog; view here- www.ogefash.reviews)

Moving on, so, true to the title of the song “Action”; the video was more of “action” than words. The artiste showcased posh images in terms of cars, cuisine, places which indeed complemented the track.

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. Like seriously, the two verses are so brief. The Verse one has four lines while the Verse two has three lines but was repeated making it 6 lines in totality. He sang the chorus three times. Lyrically, the song is original. He sang both in English and Yoruba.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Intro, “Owo ye ‘n mi mi. Ehn (The money is making me tremble)”, the artiste said the plenty money he has makes him shake or tremble. He further said he doesn’t need to explain how wealthy he is to people because rich people do not talk too much, all they do is just use their wealth to enjoy life; more action less words.

In the chorus, the artiste said he is a man of action rather than words. He is quick to move and doesn’t waste time. “If you wanna shoot, shoot, shoot, don’t talk” In essence, he also believes that people should just go ahead and do what they intend doing without delay rather than saying it repeatedly and end up not doing it.

In the verse 1, “I’m living La Vida Loca- eh. Dem know I’m a Don, I’m a Soldier- eh’’ the artiste said he is assiduous and he is the boss. He is living the kind of life he wants. His assiduousness and God has fetched him plenty money to which he is able to live a large life. He further said his money is excess and he can never be caught unprepared for whatever that comes his way financially, materially and so on. This is because his money keeps increasing

In the verse 2, “Everytime when I come through, it’s a bang bang bang”, the artiste said everything about him is a great hit, excellent and superior; his music show, money and girls around him are proofs.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “ACTION” BY DBANJ MEAN

The artiste basically reinforced the popular word, “action speaks louder than words”. In essence, what people do matters a lot more than what they say they will do.

That is, you can keep saying you want to buy Rolls Royce Ghost but don’t make a move. So, until you buy it, then you are just a person of “words” than “action”.

So whatever you wanna do, just do, don’t be loquacious.

Hence, the song “Action” by Dbanj enjoined people to make a move or act their words rather than repeating what they intend to do and end up not doing it.

In the song, Dbanj shows that he is a man of action, he acquires the things he wants and goes to places he likes, rather than say his intentions and end up not doing them.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

OFF GUARD– Unprepared, unexpected

SHOOT– Shoot here means to start, to speak- to move or act quickly or suddenly

SALEYE– Explain; OLOWO– Wealthy people; JAIYE– Enjoy life/world

COSTUME: Still thinking

LOCATION:

Shot both outdoor and indoor in Dubai. It was shot in Deira, Sharjah, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Deira is the third largest city in the United Arab Emirates.

Dbanj and his crew also used one of the malls in Dubai, they purchased clothes in Promod, one of the cloth stores in the mall.

VIDEO PRODUCTION:

Terrific! Everything about the video shows affluence which complements the message of the track. The expensive cars, cuisine and resort. Great lightning; quality video.

From research, Rolls Royce Ghost is a British full size luxury car, a wholly owned subsidiary of BMW. It costs about 3,900 dollars to maintain it annually and 650 dollars to change the oil; so what are you saying bad belle…

SOUND- Interesting to the ears. He was consistent with the flow of the rhythm. His lyrics also flowed well with the beat.

JUST WONDERING

Who is Urban? Happy birthday Urban

This shot, somehow though…
