Eargasm Alert! 2Baba and Sauti Sol smack it with “Oya Come Make We Go” [VIDEO]

2FACE FT SAUTI SOL - Oya Come Make We Go Album Art

2Baba has me on my feet with this new tune and it has been on repeat all morning! “Oya Come Make We Go” is the quintessential Get-Up-And-Get-It song and it is a delight to listen to.

A little background information: The Fighter by Gym Class Heroes ft Ryan Tedder is one of my favourite songs ever. It is a song about doing what you need to do against all odds. One of my favourite 2Baba tracks has got to be ‘Keep On Rocking‘. He brings that parry beat and makes you just wanna let loose.

Now imagine the finger-clicking beats of Keep On Rocking under the message of The Fighter. Gbogbo baaaaahdest tune!

2Baba ft Sauti Sol - Oya Come Make We Go

The video tells the story of a young girl who is obsessed with space and goes after her dreams as best as she can with amazing results.

My favourite part has got to be the chorus. I feel like we should replace the Nigerian national anthem with these words because this is what Nigerians do all day err’day. The hustle remains real:

Oya come mek we go!
Mek we go to all the places wey we talk say we go like to go before!
Mek we go, mek we see wetin dem dey do for dia!
Make we feel am, mek we check am,
If na two head dem dey use, we go know!
Cos na after we go know we go know –
Whether na true talk, whether na lie dem dey blow.
Oya come make we go!
Oya come make we go!

What is this if not the Nigerian spirit? We invented “Nothing dey happen! Mek we reach there first!” They even put the line – “If na two head dem dey use, we go know”. This is how we make decisions as a people. We brave the odds, we decide we want something badly enough and then we GO!

Look, there is no doubt about it: I love this song. But please let us know what you think
