(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW- KARMA BY MR P “I AM TRYING TO CONNECT THE ENTIRE RHYTHM!”

IG @ogefashblog

Even though I love the visual of this song, I am really trying so hard to connect the flow of rhythm; ko balance, owa (it is) complicated, especially the part where Mr. P introduced another tune in the mid part of the song. The part he sang “Do good and good…”

I really love the Chin chun as in Chinese “feel” in the video.

So, let’s talk about the song Karma by Mr. P

According to the English dictionary, the word Karma is the force or law of nature which causes one to reap what one sows; destiny, fate.

I was expecting Mr.P to kill this song lyrically even if im no kill am beat wise with the above  definition. I really can’t link the song to the word karma except in the bridge where he quickly attached

“Do good and good go follow you; do bad and Karma dey for you

Do good and good go follow you; do bad and Karma dey for you…”

At the beginning of the song, I felt he was clueless about what to sing. He just kept on repeating the same words for over was 1 minute, and then the way he rendered the word “karma” is not sweetening to the ears at all.

The lyrics self are not in array; as in they are poorly arranged. Oh! I just can’t believe Mr.P was the one that released this song; someone tell me he didn’t. Did he not replay this song to see how it sounds in his ears before releasing the track. Something must have happened. Of all singles he has dropped; this is just not it for me

I feel he was just jumping into too many new lyrics/lines without finishing a particular one properly. Mr.P should have either built his entire lyrics around the bridge and still title the song Karma or built his entire lyrics on the pre-chorus and chorus and look for another suitable title for the song. What ya all think?

So what should the song “Karma” be about?

The song Karma should basically be talking about those that wish evil for others and how evil befalls them instead. The song should advice people to be good to others, else the evil they do will come back to them (Karma) (Fine he sang that in the bridge)

However, the artiste sang more about his comfortable lifestyle which he attributes to God and says that if God was not God and was probably human beings; he would have been in tears and have gone down. He says people don’t wish him well but want his downfall.

O-ookay, may be what he is trying to say is that those that wish him bad, karma will befall them; that is bad things will also happen to them…

What does ekelebe mean? I am trying to really figure that out. You have an idea? Kindly fill other readers in via the comment box.

Mr.P sang basically in pidgin

Take a gander at the lyrics below.

Ogefash's Styl

Born in the 80’s, Ogefash picked up writing early in her secondary school days at International School, University of Lagos (Unilag). She took it professionally after her university days at the University of Lagos where she graduated from the Department of Mass Communication. She is a writer of several short stories some of which have been published in the magazines. Some of her popular stories are: A Night to Remember, The Special Gift, Haunted, Preparing Ahead of Time amongst others. Her novel "Looming Danger" published in December 2015, was highly recommended by people. She has worked with several media outlets some of which are Spur Magazine and Upcoming Magazine. She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation. Her unique strory telling and song teaching skills endeared her more to the kids she worked with. Ogefash is a goal getter, a pace setter and always strives for excellence. She likes to impact and solve problems in a creative way regardless how challenging they may be. She has in-depth knowledge in reporting, editing, social media and other media related works. She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness. The show brought together four African countries Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and Coted'ivoire who competed for the grand prize of 20,000 dollars. Undaunted by any task in her field, Ogefash is highly energetic and creative. She is a rare gem and a gift to this generation.
