(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Ameno Amapiano remix by Nektunez and Goya Menor

Goya Menor is a Nigerian artist while Nektunez is a Ghanaian producer. Ameno is a new tune derivative of the song “Dorime.” The main vibe is to keep all listeners on the streets on their dancing feet. 

What is the song Ameno Amapiano by Nektunez and Goya Menor about?

Different meanings have been given to this song. I met with Femi Zeal who believes that the song is an upbeat song used to usher bartenders in with the expensive drinks so that the interests of clubbers can be aroused and they would be gingered to purchase the expensive drinks. 

The song also addresses young people that are desperate to mingle “chill,” with the so-called “Big Guyz,” without knowing their source of wealth. It also takes a swipe at ladies using their God-given assets; body, beauty for immorality purposes.

According to Femi, normally, the main song has no s-xu-al undertone but Nigerian Youths and social media influencers have given it s-x-al meaning. 

For instance, when “Dorime,” is played, it is interpreted as copulation between man and woman. However, some lines in this song do have s-x-al undertone.

View some lines with s-x-al undertone

Na you dey run kiti kiti (You are the one running this…)

You dey run kata kata (You are the one running that…)

No fit drink water drop cup (You can’t drink water and drop the cup.)

Go school e go school, you go dey pen tools (He went to school to pen tools)

There are however other meanings to this song. If you have yours, feel free to share with other readers via the comment box. Thanks
