Baby you too good for me
I no think say I be the right person for you baby
You need a man wey go dey there for you
Wey go give you all the company you need baby
I just want the best for you girl, Omotena
I no fit give you all the time you deserve
Because I be Waka waka
Everyday go be working day
When you need me around I would be far away
Baby me I no settle because for my job no holiday.

Listening to these words, the only thing that cross my mind is the truthful side of a celeb, the part of that superstar or that hustling fellow that just doesn’t want to waste the precious and rare emotions of that tender hearted lady who is so madly in love with him. What more can be so sweet and mind settling if not being told that the relationship cannot work due to the very busy schedule [but shebi dem say, no matter how busy the person is, he or she would create time for you? *eyes rolling* ]. Rather than making one go through all the stress of “why didn’t you pick my calls?“, “why didn’t you call me?“, “why this, who’s that“, and all sort of questions that leads to – *clears throat*. Anyways, the very 1st time I heard this song [yes, there’s always a 1st time], I was marveled at not just the delivery, but the lyrics. For the very 1st time, we had a Nigerian artiste do a song about their very busy life and how they really appreciate that person that would give their all just to be with them [not for fame or money ooo], yet regret the fact that they just have to let them go, all thanks to their very busy schedule and wouldn’t want to fool them [don’t mess with their feelings if you know you are not going to be real with them]. That’s basically the moral of the song, his 1st emergence into the industry was with a collaboration he did with the Nigerian living legend, 2face Idibia, on a song titled “One In A Million“; he’s churned out more offerings like “Confused“, “Omotena“, “Skibo“, “Oluchi” and “Twerk‘, to mention a few. He’s an Isoko boy by birth and his space in the industry, cannot be taken. I had a chat with Solid Star for 10 minutes and he let me into his glorious and gracious world…
