AFRI-TUNES WEEK #19/ BIBÀNKÉ BY ÀSÁ

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Hello Afri-tunes community, it's week 19 and as always I'm super excited to share my entry this week. I trust we all doing good, For this week I'd be covering a song by Nigerian-French singer, songwriter and recording artist Ásà called "Bibanke".

Bibánke is a yoruba word which means when I cry in English, the song is a dirge for love lost,
a cliché tale of the natural death that love experiences when one of the two parties in a relationship senses danger signals early on in a relationship, but continues to fall deeper into the hole, until they suddenly hit rock bottom. Sorrow is inevitable in the end. I do hope you enjoy my cover of this beautiful record. Have a great week ahead y'all 🤍 & 💡.

LYRICS

I wake up I see you
As you leave

I feel it, I see it
As you leave

When we kiss I want deep
But you're far away

Bi ban ké bo bi ban shun
Fi mi si le
Bi' ban ké bo jo ba n ro
Fi mi si le

He used to be my everything
Treated me like I was a queen
What spell did u cast on me?
Or is it a make believe?

You say girl never be afraid
Of ever ever loving me
Those words I hung on to
Oh God I was a fool

You became my bad habit
Keeping up appearances
So you could notice

Even when you suddenly
Picked your things and left the keys
That's crazy

Bi' ban ké bo ban shun
Fi mi si le
Bi' ban ké bo jo ba n ro
Fi mi si le

Bim ban ke o o o o
Ko kun ba si a
Fi mi si le

Bi ban ke o o o o
Ko kun basia
Ko kun basia

Bi ban ke o o o o
Ko kun basia
Ko kun basia

Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa
Ko sho, ko sho wa
Mo ti foro mi fo lu wa
Ko sho, ko sho wa

Iwo iwo nikan soso [repeats]

When I'm crying
When I'm dying
Just leave me alone

I could cry a river
Or a waterfall
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone

I could cry a river

Asa Cannot but be proud of what you've done with her song!

Asa is one musician I respect so well. She is a Queen of her Queendom. She doesn't bother herself or drag for fame like some of these upcoming artists. She just consistently delivers musical hit back to back.

I think her first single was Eye Adaba and she recorded it in 2007. Still yet, that song is ever fresh. Her unique level of musicality is something else eeeehn.

And here, you've proven to be up to her standard. This is a great piece brother, and you are always consistent in giving hit, back to back, just like ASA.

Keep doing what you do best brother


  • By the way, I think you should consider using the embedding format for your web sources so that you can easily arrange and organise them
  • Also, you "MAY" consider limiting your tags. I think 10 is considered as max necessary: Peakd, Ecency and Leofinance, respects this limit... only 3speak gives space for unlimited.

Asa songs are mostly loveable songs, and also evergreen. Imagine this song still sound as if it was just last month. Anyways the cover wouldn't have been cool like this if you had not made use of your amazing voice. Nice performance brother.
