Ehhh “leg up, leg down, hand up, hand down…” #Winks

Are you wondering what I mean by “leg up, leg down, hand up, hand down?” It is actually my dance moves to this melodious jam; this song is what I call jam of life. This song di (is) dope; I am so loving it!

I still prefer this song to unripe pawpaw (View the review here https://ogefash.reviews/2020/02/05/32/); the sound is more organized and made the song melodious.

In all honesty, this song ehn, lyrics or no lyrics, something must move in your body when the beat comes on. 

By the way, Zlatan seems to be doing a lot of collaborations with Papisnoop these days; is there any reason for it? If dem get kasala, na who go com solve their matter? #Winks

The matter is a song by Zlatan ft Papisnoop. Remember Zlatan also featured Papisnoop and Oberz in the hit track “Uniripe Pawpaw” View the review here https://ogefash.reviews/2020/02/05/32/

The word “Matter” means a lot of things, the meaning and usage however depend on the context it is used. In this song, for instance, the repeated use of the word “matter” means a condition or subject that is of great concern and that needs to be resolved.

In this song, the artistes talk about finding every possible means to resolve an almost impossible/ unresolvable matter. Or better still, this is a call to people to resolve whatever issue they have with anyone regardless of how unresolvable it may seem. They used the word “matter” to point out various awkward issues, or issues among celebrities, families, friends, and society, in general, that may make people raise eyebrows, and that may be difficult to resolve.

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses taken by Zlatan and Papisnoop respectively. The chorus was taken twice by Zlatan. The lyrics are punchy, lengthy, and detailed. The artistes sang in Pidgin and Yoruba; a Nigerian language…

Vocal: The artistes’ vocal style made the song interesting to the ears. They were consistent with their vocal quality

Melody: This song is melodious. It has a fast tempo beat; the beat is quite similar to the beat of “Unripe pawpaw” by the same artistes. The rhythm flows well and the instruments are well balanced. The major instruments used to compose the song include drums and piano.
