It’s about that time Nigerian artistes start giving us real value for our MB and paying much attention to the kind of video content or illustration they bring out; though we are still in the era of booty-shaking and nakedness, paraded as if it’s nothing, some very few artistes have taken time out to deliver a pleasant explanatory video to the audio they served.

Harrysong dropped what can be describe as a diss song or response to all the media brouhaha that has been making rounds after his supposed split from his former label and boss, KCee; no doubt, the song had jaw-dropping lyrics like, “cow meat dey for pot, periwinkle show him face, empty kettle wey I help full water, I put food for table make you come chop, you use am against me out me for cooking pot,” just to recite a few that had indirectly pointed fingers to the happenings at Five Star while he was still an active member of the label.

I anticipated a breath-taking video, (as everyone that knows me will know I personally made sure everyone on my social media list had it on their playlist even if him do akagum for the matter) one that would so describe the lyrics in a self-explanatory manner considering the fact that visuals tell the story of a song. Fast forward to Friday afternoon jeje, ghen ghen… I don save MB, I don stop some kind WhatsApp chat, I don dey check IG to see Harrysong post the video link finally after he had done some whetting of my appetite with a snippet earlier in the week; I check my WhatsApp messages and BOOM!!! Harrysong had sent a BC joyfully sharing the link to his video. I suspended all I was doing. Over and out (in Professor Johnbull’s voice), I begin stream the video and bang bang!!! Harrysong fall the full Warri nation hand!

Abeg wetin concern “enemies don go buy kerosene, dem put my matter for celophine” “with ojuju calabar wey dey dance?” All I saw throughout the video was display of masquerade and him learning how to ride power-bike – for crying out loud.

Even when you talk say, “cow meat dey pot, periwinkle show him face,” you for still show us small comic for kitchen – haba. I was expecting to see a steaming pot of better Banga soup spiced up with different animals and our little periwinkle struggling to mark register, but NO!!! Uncle dey dance for Kokori bridge for Warri.

Even when he said, “dem send higher killers to come finish me,” a good action or escape display (he for even tiff small Nollywood put inside) would have certified the video as…dope, but bros siddon for table with ugly men dem, dey carry plastic gun and telephone wey no get network dey talk “Tales by Moonlight.” To add salt to the injury, he don dey shout #Alterplate soldiers since for even small pikin ear sotey dem wan know who dem be only for uncle Harry to end the video without even posing with the “Alterplate Soldiers,” na him fellow tutors wey dey teach am how to ride okada him follow pose!!!

In a nutshell, Apostle Must Hear This!!!

Bros, time don reach wey sense go enter that your skull ooo!!!
