Hello wonderful people, for this week's Afritune entry I chose P-square's Oleburuku.

20220922_225024_0000.png

The aim of the Afritune weekly prompt is to celebrate African music on Hive so I again decided to sing a song with a touch of an African language which is the Yoruba phrase "Ole buruku" and Igbo language which can be heard in the lines "ibu onye shi".

The Lyrics

I don't know the reason why I can't sleep tonight
Maybe na because of you
Every other day you got me disorganized
Maybe cos I'm far from you
Girl what should I do
Where should I begin
No be you say you go born my pikin
Now I realize that I've been wasting all my time baby
Cos I'm into you
You're just like a thief in the middle of the night
You broke into my heart with a dagger knife
Now you got me twisted thinking otherwise
Next time I no go try this thing lai lai

Ibu onye oshi, cos you stole my heart away
Ibu onye oshi, and you set my heart ablaze
Ibu onye oshi, ole buruku ole buruku ole buruku
Ibu onye oshi, my girl ibu onye oshi
Cos you took my heart away (ole buruku, ole buruku, ole buruku)
And you stole my heart away (ole buruku, ole buruku, ole buruku)

I still dey wonder how you got me feeling like a fool
The only thing I do is begging you
Girl abi na blunder, cos you dey make me to dey do
E dey do me like juju
Omo you turn me to mumu for you
So tell me wetin man go do
You know I got so many plans for you
No way, you got me screaming ole

You're just like a thief in the middle of the night
You broke into my heart with a dagger knife
Now you got me twisted thinking otherwise
Next time I no go try this thing lai lai
Ibu onye oshi, cos you stole my heart away
Ibu onye oshi, and you set my heart ablaze
Ibu onye oshi, ole buruku ole buruku ole buruku
Ibu onye oshi, my girl ibu onye oshi
Cos you took my heart away (ole buruku, ole buruku, ole buruku)
And you stole my heart away (ole buruku, ole buruku, ole buruku)

Somebody say ole
She be ole
And everybody say ole, she be ole
Somebody say ole, she be ole
And everybody say ole, she be ole

You are just like a thief in the middle of the night
You broke into my heart with a dagger knife
Now you got me twisted thinking otherwise
Next time I no go try this thing lai lai
Ibu onye oshi
And you set my heart ablaze
Ibu onye oshi
Cos you took my heart away
Ibu onye oshi ole buruku ole buruku
Ibu onye oshi my girl ibu onye shi

I really enjoyed your presentation
It seems you loved this song back then seeing the way you sang everything as an acapella style, and without looking at the lyrics, like I'd do 😅

Your voice is unique and sweet, as if you add sugar or honey inside 🥺

So Lovely!

The old PSquare, na G.O.A.T dem be. Their songs are really dope and the lyrics are so simple and easy to learn and sing along. I think they do this on purpose so that their fans will always sing along with them.

Maybe na why you cram no be small...lol
