Track: Ariwo ko

Artiste: Adekunle Gold

Producer: YBNL

Director: Adasa Cookey

Location: Lagos

‘Ariwo ko’ which means it’s not noise by Adekunle GOLD, it’s a clarion call to music artistes who think songs are all about putting  beats together without a proper message or content for its listeners.

Moreso, the ‘Orente progenitor’ in its lyrics also brings to fore those people/artists who think because they are wealthy they can act without caution.

“Your Papa get money, You dey do any how….” Adekunle Gold sings.

It preaches humility and the need for us all to know that whatever you have achieved or even if your parents are well to do, it all comes from God Almighty, not to us Lord but to you be glory and power.

The song is a fusion of afrobeat and a nice Indian flavor which reminds us of Bollywood the film industry in India.

As it is common among music artistes the song might actually be referring to one of the wave making A-list musician who comes from a wealthy home and even makes it known in his songs. Thumbs up to the YBNL star Adekunle Gold who keeps getting better as he releases new songs.

While naijaloaded, Nigeria’s website for music and video, rated it “Video of the Week,” Ariwo ko was one of the top Nigerian trends on the social media, particularly twitter, on August 22, 2016.

“Enu o ose

Enu o se ee

Ariwo ko ni music ooo

Empty barrel lo ma n pariwo

Ariwo ko ni music oo

Enu o se,

Enu o se ee

Ariwo ko ni music oo

Empty barel lo man pariwo

……………………

Numbers don’t lie

And I don’t shout

Topping every chart

And I don’t make mouth

Oluwa lo n seyi

Emi naa ko ooo

…………………………………

No be only you go make am

Je a gboran o ree ooo

Who you help ooo?

No be only you go chop life

Je a gboran ore, ye pariwo

Enu o see…………………

………………………………..

Your Papa get money

You dey do any how….

………………………………….

Ajepako niwa

Pele omo olowo

Owa so’le aye dawa mailo

Baba ma lo n se

Iwo naa kooooo….

…………………………”

It’s not by noise!

Thumbs up to the YBNL star Adekunle Gold who keeps getting better as he releases new songs.
