(+Lyrics + Translation) Kilometer Meaning and Lyrics Translation by Burnaboy “Mad…Product of a torn condom..”

Music Review: Kilometer by Burnaboy

“Kilometer,” is a song by Nigerian Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, Burnaboy.

I love this song honestly; so dope! I also love the lyrics; they are very punchy. But wait o, did Burnaaboy just say “You are talking like a product of a torn condom?”

Yes, he did; that means you are talking rubbish or in a confused manner.

What is the song Kilometer by Burnaboy all about?

In the song “Kilometer,” by Burnaboy, the artist corrects the wrong notion that people have about him, that he is a newbie in the industry who just quickly became rich. He said it took him years to get to where he is today.

Burnaboy said he has been in the industry for years just like Afro Juju singer, Sina Peters hustling for a breakthrough without fame and wealth before it finally came his way.

He has paid his dues. That is he walked a distance and worked hard for years before the recognition and fame came. So he is not a newbie, he did not just suddenly get rich or famous. It took years, years of taking different steps and spending hours recording before a successful way was finally paved for him.

The use of Kilometer by Burnaboy in this song is to emphasize how long he has been in the industry and how far he walked before getting famous and wealthy.
