(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review- Bad by Mo Cheddah ft Olamide

Bad is a song by Nigerian rapper, Mo Cheddah, and she featured another Nigerian rapper, Olamide. I wonder if Nigerians were sleeping when this song dropped. Honestly, this song is dope! Most of the lyrics are quite punchy. I loved in particular –

“Emi money long third mainland bridge (My money is long like Third Mainland bridge.)

Eyin coming soon Fourth mainland bridge (Yours is coming soon, Fourth Mainland Bridge.”)

Lol!

Moving on, but wait oh, did Mocheddah say she was gone for a minute? No Mo, please, it is more than a minute. Please, come back to the music scene. Nigerians have certainly missed your swag and flow. I miss your swag and flow!

What is the song “Bad” by Mocheddah ft Olamide all about?

Over time the meaning of “Bad,” has been reversed to mean something positive like being extremely skilled and so on.

In the song “Bad,” the artists talk about being extremely skilled in their field and being better than their music industry mates, who dare not come close to them or release their tune the day they release theirs.

They also brag about their capability, wealth, and status. They bragged about how they have stood the test of time, and her still standing and breaking records.

The used by Mocheddah signifies B-tch

Punchy lines by Mo Cheddah

Emi Mo’Cheddah goal getter ehn (Me, Mo Cheddah, I am a goal getter.)

Eyin so fly, eyin no feather (You are feeling so fly, yet you have no feather.)

Emi money long third mainland bridge (My money is long like Third Mainland bridge.)

Eyin coming soon Fourth mainland bridge (Yours is coming soon, Fourth Mainland Bridge.”)

Punchy lines by Olamide

Awon gang mi o ran yin (My gang don’t give a damn about you.)

A kin se tailor (We are not tailor.)

Mi o de kin se Danfo Driver (And I am not a Danfo Driver.)

Mo fe mo ibi ti e n lo (I don’t want to know where you are going to.)

You can’t be the head, b’owu e ko ge gorimapa (Okay) (You can’t be the head even if you are on the lowest cut.)

Shoutout si awon rappers ti o si fi agbara rap (Shout out to all those rappers still using power to rap.) 

E fi agbara blow (You used the same power to blow.)

E de fi agbara sharp (But you did not use the power to be sharp.)
