Osinbajo Sings ‘Buga’ As He Advises Youths To Always Show Off
Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo has made a rendition of some tracks of singers Asake, Kizz Daniel, and Burna boy today.
He used them as a reference during his speech at the ongoing UNTWO World Tourism Organisation Global Conference in Lagos.
He described music in his speech as a global language and entertained guests with the tracks like Buga won by Kizz Daniel, last last by Burnaboy, and Organize by Asake.
During the rendition of Buga Won, many of the guests joined the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo in the chorusing and cheered him.
He sings and acts to the lyrics of Buga by Kiss Daniel and Tekno
He said, “Music, for example, as we all know, is a global language. Even though people don’t know the meaning of the words of a song, they enjoy the rhythm, and some find out the meaning of lyrics by discovering the cultures and ideas that inspire them
But let me just test that theory of mine, that is, that you don’t need to understand the words of any song to enjoy it and to be able to sing it and that music is indeed a very global language. How many people know this song?
You know that your buga has to be a real buga
We also have Asake who sang organize every other day I organize, some of us are wise, every other person overwise, …these songs are street slang in Lagos and all over Nigeria.”
The phrase ‘buga won’ is a Yoruba expression. It means ‘flaunt your hard-won success, take the fruit of your work. Take the opportunity, show off your successes.’ Don’t sit down there thinking my success is too small. Feel it, show it off.
we all know Burna boy, he sang last last, everybody will chop breakfast, there is wisdom in it, it means we all matter at the end. He is the first afrobeat to sell over 500 units in the first 17 weeks of release and is now certified for gold in the USA..”
