Music Review: Awolowo (The Remix) by BOJ ft FALZ, Fresh L, and Ycee

Awolowo is a song by Nigerian singer and songwriter, Bolaji Odojukan aka BOJ. He features sensational Nigerian singers, Falz (Folarin Falana), YCee (Oludemilade Martin Alejo), and Fresh L (Ladi Lanre).

Interestingly, the song “Awolowo,” has different remixes. There is a remix with Wizkid (Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun) and Darko Vibes (Paul Andrew Darko.) There is also a remix with Ghanaian artists, Kwesi Arthur (Emmanuel Kwesi Arthur Junior), Darko Vibes (Paul Andrew Darko), and Joey B (Darryl Kwesi Martin).

This particular remix lacks clarity, especially the last verse. I think it was taken by Fresh L. It was a herculean task hearing what he sang.

What is the song Awolowo by BOJ ft Falz, Ycee and Fresh L about?

I don’t know why BOJ titled the song Awolowo. Chief Obafemi Jeremiah Awolowo aka Awolowo was one of the Nationalist leaders in Nigeria. An Ogun indigene who was born in 1909 and died in 1987. His memory is honored with a picture of him on Nigeria’s 100 Naira banknote.

So, I can’t relate the title of the song to the song, except they are trying to say that they have “plenty of money in their hands.” That means, “awolowo,” in this song is an abbreviation of “gb’awolowo.”

Moving on,

In the song “Awolowo,” by BOJ ft Falz, Ycee and Fresh L, the artists entice the ladies to their side with their personality, affluence, and sexual prowess.

They also sing about how they desire to pamper and care for the ladies they love. They intend to show them off, spend on them, maintain their stylishness, and give them good s-x without recounting to anyone.

Lastly, they brag about their financial capability and s-xual prowess which they believe are needed to satisfy and keep a woman.
