(+Lyrics + Translation) “Activate,” Meaning and Lyrics Translation by Stonebwoy ft Davido

Music Review: “Activate,” by Stonebwoy ft Davido

“Activate,” is a song by one of the biggest sensational Ghanaian artist, Livingstone Etse Satekla aka Stonebwoy. The song “Activate,” features sensational Nigerian singer and songwriter, Davido.

If you have listened to this song, you would agree with me that the “pre-chorus,” which was taken by Davido, and the “chorus,” which was taken by Stonebwoy were the most melodious part of the song.

I am wondering what Davido means by “Kayamata for you.” The last time I checked, “Kayamata,” are s€x materials used to enhance s€x or make sex sweet. So was he saying he would buy those things for his woman if she allows him to have her? Any idea? Kindly share via the comment box.

The song “Activate,” by Stonebwoy ft Davido kicked off with a playlet that lasted for about 20 seconds. In the playlet, Davido and Stonebwoy were contemplating what side they should be at. Read their dialogue (their dialogue though…) below

“Activate,” drama dialogue

Davido: Omo, those girls dey that place o (Those girls are at that place)

Stonebwoy: Which side (What side?)

Davido: That side? (That side)

Stonebwoy: Which side? (What side?)

Davido: Dem dey that side (They are on the other side)

Stonebwoy: See how this place big like this, which side? (See how big this place is; what side)

Davido: Dem dey that side (They are on that side)

Stonebwoy: We go go that side; that side we for go (We would go to that side; we should have gone to that side)

Davido: I don miss am again (I have missed it again)

Stonebwoy: Sey make I help you? (Should I help you)

Davido: Omo make we go meet the girls (Let’s go and meet those girls)

Stonebwoy: Which one? (Which one?)

Davido: Fvck off (Fvck off)

Stonebwoy: For which side? I dey your back na (For what side na; I am at you back)

What is the song “Activate,”  by Stonebwoy ft Davido all about?

To activate someone means to make someone active in certain things or to make something start working or become effective. It also means to be triggered or motivated to do something.

In the song activate, the artists sing about the effect a lady has on them and their readiness to spend on her just to have her. Their desire for this lady, however, seems more like a “s-xual,” one. They desire a no-string-attached relationship with her because she is a flirt.

View in these lines sung by Davido 

“Me I wanna keep her but she be cheater (I want to keep her but she is a cheater)

 Me I no wan no relationship (I don’t want any relationship)

 Omo wa’nbi let’s make some kiss (Baby girl, come, let us make some kiss)”

More meaning of Kayanmata

They are materials that act as s€x or love sweeteners for a couple. They come in the form of herbs, soaps, sweets, spices, lubricants, perfumes, make-up, herbs, sweetener powders, and so on.

What does “Captivate,” mean?

Captivate means to be influenced, captured, or dominated by someone or something.

Lyrically: The lyrics are fair. I don’t think that “Kayamata for you” was necessary. But the lyrics are meaningful as they are centered on a lady that triggers an action in them and occupies their mind based on her physique and some other qualities. The artists sang in pidgin. Stonebwoy, however, fused with a Ghanaian word.

The song comes in a verse taken by Stonebwoy and Davido. The chorus was taken thrice while the pre-chorus was taken twice. The hook was taken twice. The lyrics flowed well on the beat, however, at some point, there was no clarity.

Vocally: The artists at some point were not audible. But they sang melodiously and did not go off-tune. They put real feelings into the song.

Melody: I love the beat, It is a fast-tempo beat. the major instruments used to compose the song include drum, piano, and guitar. They sang melodiously. The lyrics flowed on the beat, and the beat is well coordinated.
