(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Omo ope by Asake and Olamide

What is the song “Omo ope” by Asake ft Olamide about?

The word “Omo ope” when translated to English means a “Thankful child.” 

In the song, the artist is thankful for the money and all the things he has, and calls himself “Omo Ope.” That means someone full of thanks.

He plans to use his wealth to take liquor, buy expensive things, flirt with girls, party; to paint the town red non-stop. In essence, he is going to go out and enjoy himself in a flamboyant manner. 

The artist seems to want to live a wayward life throwing caution to the wind.
