Music Review- Okwaraji (Original Version) by Blaqbonez 

Okwaraji is a name of a one-time popular international professional footballer from Nigeria. His full name is Samuel Sochukwuma Okwaraji.

Samuel was also a lawyer. He was the best dribbler during his time. He died after a cardiac arrest on the pitch. 

Blaqbones titled this song “Okwaraji,” because the theme of this song centers around the Okwaraji’s role as a dribbler then.

What is the song Okwaraji (Original Version) by Blaqbonez all about?

This is a song on the heartbreak and unfaithfulness of women.

In the song, the artists talk about being dead-eyed, that is, lacking emotion in any relationship after a series of heartbreaks from women they loved deeply. They had rather play with the lady’s feelings, more like dribbling the lady like the role of the footballer “Okwaraji,” have s-x with her, and then break up with her. No strings attached, no emotional connection; just for s-xual pleasure. 

They would rather choose s-x over love, as they believe all women are now prostitutes.

They went on to say that even if they eventually fall in love, they won’t make it conspicuous so they won’t be heartbroken again.

Meaning of some words

Walk over someone means to treat someone in a bad way, without respect.

Oppressing one’s emotions means to play with one’s emotion, to be cruel to the person, making the person feel undeserved and unloved.
