Viva Naija reviews: Bahd Baddo Baddest by Falz, Olamide, Davido [LISTEN]


I was so excited when I heard the song Bahd Baddo Baddest was coming out. The clever play on their nicknames was awesome enough (Falz is Bahd, Olamide is Baddo aka Abule Sowo, Davido is, of course, the Baddest guy ever liveth), so I was waiting on something red hot.

Falz has been my boy since the days of “Ello Bae” and “garlishing Indomie with sandine” and I have loved him all the more since his ‘Soldier’ duet with Simi. That song gives me the feelz.

Davido plays too much at times; he is the true definition of “ayo kayo” – spirit of anyhowness used to worry him because of money. However, he has been a consistent hit maker and I can’t hate on him; his performance in the UK was blinding and he certainly knows how to bring the fiyah!

Baddosneh aka my Bariga Boo is always excellent. I’ll just leave that there.

This song though…I dunno…it feels too try hard to me. I’m left somewhat underwhelmed that these three dons would get into a studio and this is the best they could do. Perhaps they’re saving all their best beats for their solo stuff, I just can’t comprehend it.

The lyrics that stood out to me the most:

Falz the Bahd: From the swag, you go know say we hold bar
White agbada, omo Yoruba!

Olamide Baddo: Halima, Kafayah, Basira, Shukura!
Gbogbo won fe marry me!

Davido O.B.O Baddest: Mr Dele na my boy, Dele na my boy!
If you come into my house, you go see my toys!

Abeg, mek I no talk long tori; the song no shack me kobo! But I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it:
