Davido’s New Song “IF”… Hit Or Miss?

If


 

Oluwatobi Ibironke’s Review (@ibironketweets)

I figured out that the mojo of the song, IF, is the sound. Even with the light instrumentation, the sound oozes of quality. I haven’t heard Davido more comfortable on a sound in recent times, thanks to Tekno for the production.

However, Davido deserves credit for giving the song a good vibe. The tempo of the song blends well with Davido’s habitual show off lyrics. This good blend makes the song enjoyable. I’d say ‘IF’ is a good record.

Rating – 3.5/5

 

Oladapo Okunnubi’s Review (@kokodapuzzy)

Hmm, IF by Davido kept us in suspense after he announced the song on his IG produced by Tekno. Listening to Prayer early this year from the DMW team had given an optimistic mind for 2017. Ok guys let’s get into the music proper!

PRODUCTION:
Oga Tekno who has become the baddest producer right now, did a good job, also bringing the trumpet flavour in the mix. But I was sha still listening to some #PANA touch in the song. Hey… also a borrowed production from 2face’s ‘Only Me’!

LYRICS:
Listening to the lyrics will easily convince fans that Teknoo wrote 70% of the song. Why? Davido utilised the Ibo or Igbo language… ‘Sipping brukututu… For your love itutu… Biko obianu Chukwu’
Davido I’m sorry has got scattered lyrics not only in this song (IF) but in other songs, like (Prayer), please make your lyrics constructive. Or better still get a better producer that can arrange your lyrics.
In this song, he was promising the babe… ‘My money my body na your own o… And later warning the babe ..no do no do no do gragra for me…’
Also noticed that egbon Davido struggled a little bit in the mille of the song!

CONTENT:
I think the content of IF is based on Love, Life and Money (30 billion in the account).
Just the same set of songs from OBO.
*IF I’m going to say, Davido has not been able to pass across any big message and same repetition of chorus in this song.
*IF, wasn’t worth the hype.

VERDICT:
4.5/10

  1. Fucking hit.

    • the reviewer doesn’t know hit

  3. Ur rating means nothing… If u want to rate naija songs none would make d cut. So keep it to urself

  4. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit for days, that song has been on replay for days

  5. This guy is fucking dumb…. Is tekno an Ibo person, he grew up in the north… Bloggers and their mumu updates shaa… smh
    So because wizkid said omalicha in a song we should assume legendury beatz wrote the song…
    Very dumb opinion from you Oladapo okunnubi

    • Tekno is pure igbo, even his accent depicts could tell he speaks it

    • brother tekno is from ebonyi state biko
      he is pure Igbo brother

  6. Wuna fada. U make u record ur own. Even ur babe no go like am. Mumu.

    If is a hit

  7. The jam is cool tho…it just depend on the nature of the song…it not all about any message but aleast to make you feel the hit in it Man…which other Way will it have be better…it have been long I heard such form OBO…the song is better tho..

  8. Respect dis guy effort he try gan

  9. Respect d guy he try dis best beginning of 2017

  10. Y hating on David? If is dope! Davido is good! Period!!!!

  11. the second writer was obviously drunk

  12. Davido killed the song, haters ona must talk shuu make ona do ona own make we hear.. If is my ringtone then make ona kill ona self

  13. Tooxclushit you guys are fools
    Can’t even write anything good
    Always looking for flaws
    Dead site

    • Your super right!!
      No wonder naija loaded of yesterday is better than you

  14. Sing one nah if e go hit….nah u dey always cux wahala…hit or miss ask google

  15. i love it OBO badest

  16. Splendid hit song

  17. Oladapo is a big fool.Davido just tried to clear anybody he approaches make dem no go do gra gra if e tell u say he love u.

  18. Hahaha those veridcts are all shit, especially the second one talking bout the lyrics.. davido and tekno made a fucking hit.. ALL FACTS well numbers don’t lie anyways

  19. Wetin concern me with your rating, it’s OBO baddest

  20. banger #Hit???

  21. Davido mama is Igbo by tribe. He had spoken igbo in so many songs. so keep shut abeg.

    • From which part of igbo tribe?

      • ebonyi state

  22. That music was a hit, I wonder what ease you want from music, OBO baddest, I keep repeating it, haters u can just kill ur self

  23. Did u notice that @ the beginning OBO hit a minor note?… I’ll give him credit on that note. Tekno influenced the track no doubt, OBO’s delivery wasn’t flawless but it was a good effort. Kudos to the reviewers though, una try.

    • best comment here. simple fact.

  24. The first pundit was a little bit tipsy for claiming tekno wrote 70%(wen u hear Davido sing abt money, you knw he wrote dat song), 30 billion in the account, the second pundit was obviously drunk ,based on logistics, IF is a hit

  25. Funny…u guys dnt hv any reasonable tin to say… Its nt d first tym davido used trumpet so dnt gv d credit to tekno…if uve seen *prayer* video d trumpet wz used too… IF* is actually a hit…I’ve played it lyk a thousand times since I downloaded it…nice one frm OBO

  26. leave….this xclusive pilple…
    Na notice me dem dey find.
    Kikikikikiki

  27. dis is a very useless comments, if is a jam beginning to the end. anyone saying it’s not is drunk

  28. Miss

  29. Nah pure mess b d song

  30. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You can’t crucify the poster simply because he said his mind which is true. You all have to respect that.Everyone cannot see things from your own perspective. Constructive criticism is vital in making us better than we already are. IF song is so overrated and crappy, most especially the scattered lyrics.Most foreign artists dont write their songs so it isnt compulsory for him to write one if he has absolutely nothing in his head. There are so many poets out dere that could help him out. #IFabsolutelynotworththehype#

    • With all the write up,it shows your hating….
      Grow up and be proud of yourself. Don’t remain anonymous forever

  31. Rubbish…….its OBO baddest

  32. Rubbish…….its OBO baddest……

  35. Hit

  36. Please tooxclusive are entitled to their opinion.. The writer should write facts. I just don’t understand why you will always criticize davido and rating wizkid, well its you guys problem…

  53. Nice one OBO I can’t wait to drop my own too like this

  54. brother from another mother nice concept one love I can’t wait to drop mine too like this

  55. Oladapo, you are a good critic. You are very observant. I had the same things in mind(The Only Me sample & Tekno writing most part of the song) before reading this review. “I go chook you chuku chuku o”, that’s something Tekno would say on a song. Plus everybody knows nobody calls the names of girls on songs as much as Tekno does. Good review. *thumbs up*

  56. Hit upon hit upon hit upon hit…..chineke d song got deep into my soul d first time I had d snippet nt even d whole song….obo murdered d song I don’t want to knw….OBO BADDESS IF is a hit…middle fingers to those hating

  57. if u say d song is miss what have u guy sing. go and sing let see if ur own is going to be a hit or not, one thing I no about this country is that :::GOOD MUSIC SELL FOR IT SELF ::::::

  58. Best sportscaster on radio in Nigeria, you fall my hand big time on this one. The song is cool though

  59. O.B.O blast the song, is a hit like back to back, who is tekno to write song for davido, wey bring am out for im first song titled holiday.davido will do more, keep watching haters.omo baba oluwa is a king

  60. @kokodapuzzy don’t mix being a hater and a music critic up dere 2 different things @davido’s “if” was incredible take it or leave it #hatersgonhate

  61. D song is good, but me belief say tekno would have killed it more if it was his track

  62. Bull Fucking Shit.. Crap Song.. WTF!!!

  63. What some people lack is understanding….. The critics didn’t insult anyone and it was stated clearly after their review “Do u agree with the critics?” your answer should be either Yes or No. Then state your reason why u chose your answer… Some are here blabbing….
    .
    Anyways back to the matter
    Davido has been looking for that break through song since “Aye” and finally he has landed on a track that would be on the airways for a long time.

    .
    Tho the hype was based on his level of how he loved the song… That’s why we all feel its overrated….

  65. .
    I rate it 3.5/5
    Cuz this the kinda tune Nigerians need now
    No much noise

  66. nawa oo…c haters!this song is a fucking hit…I love it like madt..fuck haters oo..wdgaf!

  67. Enemies of progress which one una sing stupid people…tumbs up davidoooooo???

  69. love this hit with passion

  70. you be fuck music way make sense like this

  71. I one to b part of it

  72. It’s not as if the igbo is very thick sef, it’s just normal simple igbo that we come in contact with everyday. It’s just like saying someone is igbo because he said chineke or biko or saying someone is yoruba for saying jesu or oshe. IF is a really nice song. If you want to do a review it doesn’t have to be negative. Thanks

  79. I have never been a davido’s fan neither have I ever downloaded any of his songs before, but dis one gat me(IF).. bro dis song is on my reply 24/7… nice one

  80. song wey don blow scatter davido no cum play diz yr @ all even d entire DMW no cum play giving us ???

  81. i dy gbadun you davido omo baba olowo

  82. I check this song but I don’t know how its gangs will be…….

  83. this is ur best single ever..I no like u before.. but i heart u now

  84. Dope Hit!!! Staedy replay..

  85. Actually, in anywhere all over the world, this kind of vibe will always be a superhit. Because, the song regardless of its meaning, was tightened with the beat as the arrangement was so cohesive that both the song and the beat move along into ears like inseparable twins. On the other hand, as a composer myself, i think good music is based on three crucial areas of rhythms: Lyrics, Melody, and Beat. Hence, a music could escape as a hit into a listener’s ears or heart via any of these rhythmic routes depending on the person’s scale of preference. In my own case as a theorist for instance, i usually lay emphasis on the three areas before making any music at all (Not yet a debutant though) But to be fair to these musicians who’re only trying their best to escape idleness, i think it’s better you don’t expect an attention paid to details from them or else you won’t be appreciative of the best they’re capable of doing…afterall we’re not debating on whether it’s evergreen or not. So, in this case of Davido’s “IF”, i’ll rate the song through its melody & beat as 6/10 which is a superhit in my own evaluation.

  86. davido knows exactly how to deliver a song, he knows himself I like him for that, tho it’s obvious he didn’t write this song but damn!! I fucking love the way he sang it.. Good work OBO..

  87. nigeria is moving upward

  88. nigeria is moving upward everytime

  89. nna na wao make una live de guy na una wa de talk make una realise una own hit as for me i so much love de song my money my body na my love own whosoever is my love watssoever.

  90. The song is dope! . . Davido has got a good start for 2017. . . . . .d fact that tekno grew up in d north doesn’t mean he can’t speak igbo. . . . He is an igbo boy and he speaks it fluently. .

  91. it’s a miss Davido sang rubbish, d lyrics z daft.
    it’s cos of money thats y some of his music is being appreciated
    till tomorrow Davido z not a singer, he is only here to make noise and blab about his money
    rubbish song wid nonsense lyrics…..he was just making noise all the way
    Wizzy all d way…..u d best Man.

  92. David has done it sgain.i just cant believe that the song was so good to good……I will judt urge the artist to continue more and more songs

  93. The song is really nice. I’m really impressed with davido and tekno’s collaboration. Tekno simply used his unique skills to write and produce the song. Nothing more. So critics shd criticise d song nt d singers tribe, personality or skills. Variety is d spice of life each producer has his own special way of writing and producing a song so derz no need of telling davido he shd find a “better” producer do his songs. Derz no better producer. Derz only anoda producer wit his own unique way of doin his thing.It is a kind of song dat will b generally accepted by most nigerians. So Thumbs up to u both.

  94. And for those saying davido shd go bck to his old style dat dis new one dsnt master him, derz notin wrong in tryin smtin new. D fact is, no mata what, people will always criticize if he sings wit his old style u will say hes doin d same thing if he sings wit new style u will say he shd go back to d old style new style ds nt fit him. So d question now is, what is up Ur ass??
