This song “Hello Baale”, which means Hello husband of the house includes three major characters, a friend (played by sound sultan) reporting via a phone conversation to the husband (played by Shaheed Balogun) about the unfaithfulness of the wife (played by Grace Armah).

The friend in his telephone conversation gave a litany of those that the wife has been sleeping with when he was away: From the driver to the gate man, vendor and a whole lot of others.

One of the lines says, “Hello baale Ashi Malo gbeni iyawo ooooo” meaning you took a Harlow as a wife.

The unfaithfulness of the wife became like her second nature, this points to the realities faced by some men in their marriages.

It points to the need to be careful when we make our choices of a life partner and ensure we put our homes in order.

Sadly in the long run, the reporter or would I saw the complainant said he has also slept with the wife, the husband collapsed immediately.

What a very tragic end to the story. The song which was produced by ace producer and legend Cobhams Asuquo is a must listen for every couple.

Sound Sultan is regarded as one of the pacesetters of modern hop hop music in Nigeria.

Thumbs up Sound Sultan for your consistent delivery of meaningful songs.
