5 Nigerian Collaborations The Featured Artiste Missed The Point

Posted by Temitope Delano on June 23, 2016 in Editorial · 42 Comments

A musical collaborative effort in my believe, is a means of passing the same message using different techniques.

For years now, the music industry has fostered collaborative tracks between artistes who are waylaid in different genres.

These artistes put their finely-honed talents to work for us creating good music for our consumption.

However, as music is a way to pass across a message to its listeners, we have seen some really talented act mess up on a collaborative effort (not getting the message the owner is trying to pass, or just intentionally ignoring it) so bad, it makes one wonder, why they became popular in the first place.

Here are 5 collaborations the featured artiste missed the point.

1. Pack and Go – Seyi Shay Ft Olamdie: I had this song on my playlist for weeks, at a point, i became like a menace with it to my colleagues. So, basically, the song is about Miss Seyi, having had enough of the battering, pain, betrayals and everything likened to the eventual breakup of a famous US musical couple’s relationship, asked that the said man, leave her be

Seyi Shay: ‘Oya pack and go, carry your Ghana must go….Oga do I look like  Rihanna, Kini Mo se fun eh, do I look l.ike Rihanna….I get beats by Dre, I no want beats by Chris, I go see you later.’

Catch the drift right…then Olamide comes in and sang this;

Like Saraki, I got you like Kwara and Ilorin, come over baby girl no need to worry, ma lo gor. Ma lo fa ke kori (baby girl don’t dull, don’t prove stubborn) let them say what they like…Like Jagaban I got you like Lagos, let them do what they like, but they can’t break us, everyone out there tryna imitate us…our love is on auto…am here to stay, there is no one lese…so fun nigga smello yen go gba left(Tell that smelling dude to leave), need I say more people.

How he thought his verse tallies with the theme of this track, still baffles me till date.

Shout out to Pheelz on the beat…amaaaaaaaazing job!


2. Ori Owo – Tillaman ft Davido: To say my 95% people of the people I know musically adored this song, would be an understatement, Tillaman had our hearts until he decided, ‘O yea, lets bring in Omo baba olowo, afterall, that’s the main message in the song…Money.

Tilla’s verse;

Ori Owo lori mi, mo ji lowuro yi , mo ji moba eleda soro, npe ori mi lano rere fun mi (I am destined to be rich, this morning I have woke up to pray again that my great path way of wealthy destiny be paved)

At first when Davido, started singing, I thought…hmmm, nice, but then…

“Eminado Tiwa…come and take my visa…baby shake your waist, come and show me love…I saw you from afar…..your body so amazing (2ce). Was unable to amke out the rest of his verse.

‘Oni Reason’ definitely


3. Confam Ni – Olamide ft Wizkid: Wizkid, did an amazing job on this track, truth be told.

Wizkid: Ori mi bam is e o, Owo tuntun wo le, ile tuntun wole o, ori mi bam is eo …ema je o jabole, loke loke la ma ma lo (My God has done it, I am the new owner of new money, house and evry other good thing…we will always go higher)

Olamidewon te mi ti fe gba isakole o….wo mo de yi ton whine ko de gbo Yoruba…Emi ni kan ni aunty Nike o ba fun ni P***y yen to ro bi amala lafun , she says to me, Olamide be careful, se bi iwo no lo gbe Chinelo wa fun (That young girl is whinning her waist to Yoruba music yet she doesn’t understand the language. Aunty Nike should have given up her soft self to me, instaed she said to me, Olamide be careful, isn’t it you alone that enjoyed Chinelo as well.)

Wizkid, did a pretty good job on this song, and it turns out he was featured. Who do we lay the blame on with this track?


4. Koma Roll – Tillaman ft Burna Boy, Iyanya, Ice Prince, Phyno: Another classic hit from Tilla who decided to employ the versatility of several other artistes.

Tilla; Yo di e se yin koma roll, ao para wa layo o lele…Simple translation, baby girl, push out your derriere and whine your waist…we will both enjoy ourselves today.

Burna: You better focus on your career, instead  of trying to cross my barrier, talk you dey talk no bring one naira…ni Ibadan ni won bi mi si. Need I say more.

Iyanya: Back then me I sing song, the only place you hear me na for their ringing tone…………………………………………….could not make out the rest.

I wanted to excuse their error by saying they are not Yoruba men, but again, Ice Prince isn’t either, yethe got the message.


5. Story Story – Iyanya ft Oritsefemi: nice beat, quite mellow and all.

Iyanya: This my lady wants to dance, and she wants to take a chance..Baby let me take your hand…you are beautiful, you give me melody..I love you fine girl, your story no dey long….baby am in love with you.

Oritsefemi: Bo lo yago, before your tire go puncture…my friend na money rule this world, if anything dey suck, money go suck them all…no dey vex say I too love money eh…abo oro la man so fun omo lu abi, ti omo ba lo opolo re a je wun lo.

Translation: If you won’t move from the road, please step aside let me pass…a word is enough for the wise,  if you are smart about anything, you will definitely make it in life.

When artistes decide to jump on another’s track to diss or do whatsoever other than what he is being paid for, saddens me. We get it, yiou are all about the money, how about sticking with the script on this one?

  1. Nice one.

  2. this guy u ash crae.. he has been hating on davido since day one..and he’ll be sucking wizkids dick

  3. Olamide for me is not singing for the world but only Nigeria. I prefer kesh than him

  4. Okay i agree woth most of it but you can still use sense to accept the first one. Imagine that Olamide is the one trying to be what seyi shey isnt experiencing in the . “beat by chris” relationship. But i thought this post was funny

  5. rubbish post….mtchew


  7. First or max 2nd Tope Delano’s post that make sense… Olamide is king of #offPoint verse on collabos…

  11. Ass datz wot u r do ur own collabo

  12. davido in bahd badoo badest, missed the line. what is our business with the $200 million dat is not an asset. “i get $200m, no be asset”

  13. Rubbish!

  14. Abi wizkid dey pay una?? person no go hear word again

  15. Point of correction, sheyi shey ft olamide….olamide got the point. He was playing the character of the guy bin asked to pack and go…wey no wan go

  16. $200m way no be asset…dat makes him d Baddest…

  17. tank yuh @ebuxwiz

  18. I agree with dis post cos most of Nigeria’s artistes don’t want to take time 2 compose on point lines especially d yoruba spoken artistes cos mayb dy tink most of d fans dnt undastnd yoruba so dy worri abt d tunes nd rhymes alone. Dis is another reason I still call MI Abaga a legend.

  20. Is wizkid feeding dis hater?? Rubbish post

  21. wat abt tiwa x olamide and phyno x olamide fada fada

  22. Lol dis is why olamide cannot win b.e.t, coz d international world doz not understand yoruba!

    • ode
      what’s the essence of winning BET

    • It is true too..I’m a Ghanaian and a fan of olamide but don’t understands him when he sings in yuroba
      ..I think he needs to sing in English if he wants to go far lk wizkid n davido

  23. Na jealousy go kill all dis Igbo biafrans hating on our Yoruba artist. One cat say OLAMIDE no fit win bet because him dey use Yoruba. Na Britain phyno dey use ba?? If ola no fit win bet den notin 4 all dis Igbo artist…

  24. I totally agree with this post. The featured artist just goes off point from the theme of song. For example, Osinachi remix,what concerns dele momodu and all that ish with the osinachi song.

    • See, God will bless you the more. I don taya to dey hear rubbish

    • You’re on point my man, that should have been no. 1

  25. I do not agree with that Wizkid and olamide collaboration.

  26. Olamid you be more I feel your rap your voice you b e badoh

  27. humblesmith ft davido OSINACHI….
    O.B.O cudnt just do without bringing up the dubai izzue
