Sade - Adekunle Gold #musicfriday

I didn't post this yesterday because there has been a mini war in my head as to which song to post for this week. I struggled between Simi's "you be tiff", +MI Abaga's "brother" and a couple of others, but as I was going through the #funny_african_pics page on instagram this morning, it hit me!

For many years, those of us with the name "Sade" pronounced "Shade" have been subjected to many miserable songs with our names. At some point I used to think, haba, is there no other yoruba name that can fit into these their songs ni?! Kilode. Then to make it worse, you will hear the songs and want to just cry. Lol.

It is so bad that  one of +Itsmrlawson's parodies had to drag Sade into it! Oh why...

Itmrlawson's parody take a look..


Remember Remedies and their J'eka ma fe r'awa one? After combing the whole of the internet (kind'a), I found the audio here. There were so many others, but I can't seem to remember nor find them.... Help me out here. Those "Sade" songs that made us hang our heads.We have suffered!

Anyways, this is why I have to celebrate +Adekunle Gold! Ho gat gat gat. I am so loving his cover of +One Direction's Story of my life. It's a "Sade" song that I am so totally proud of. I might be alone on this one, but I don't even care. Thank you Kunle!



I looked for the lyrics everywhere and found it on this cool site - Kofolyrics.com, that has all the lyrics to loads of great Nigerian songs. Add them up on their bbm channel [C0044FF66]

I made a small attempt to translate some of the yoruba in it, for the benefit of those who don't understand. It's quite tricky doing a direct translation from yoruba to English though! Whew. Lol. No wonder those yoruba home video translations are such a disaster, not like that is an excuse anyway.

Enjoy......

(anybody know a karaoke place where they do Nigerian songs? I feel ready to visit one soon. hehe)
