What is the song “Only me” by 2 Baba all about?

2Baba in this song talks about the need for humility rather than pride as he believes it helps foster unity in society. He also talks about people respecting other people’s choices rather than crucifying them for the choices they make. 

Lastly, he advises people with prideful hearts to stop being excessively proud because whatever achievement they think they have may just vanish in the twinkle of an eye.

If na only me you know say I no go care (If I was the only one, ou know I won’t care.)

Just like everybody I wish life is fair 

Only me there will be no one here for me to dare

Nobody to follow me scatter money in the air (No one to join me in throwing the money up in the air.)

No one to lean on in terms of despair (No one to lean on in terms of despair.)

Too much of everything with no want to share with-with

It will be only me going to the cinema

No girlfriend to tell once in a while say free me ma

But now I got Funke, Enenu and Chindima

Cause I am the only superman in the area
