Music Review: Rudeboy – Oga

Nigeria super star Rudeboy of the now defunct P-square has released yet another hit single which he titles “Oga“., produced by Chrisstringz. The song majorly talks about the current happenings in the country.

The singer passed a clear message in the song, speaking against election thuggery, police brutality, says extra judicial killings amongst other bad things happening in the country.

Though, the song is an Afrobeat uptown song with a nice blend of some Caribbean and reggae sound. The song speaks against all this bad event in the country from the start to the finish.

STREAM AUDIO: Rududeboy – Oga Below-

Rudeboy was planning on releasing his album this month but had to put that plan on wait as the current situation in the country keeps getting worse with series of mass protest all across the 36 states in the country.

Rudeboy started the song by asking and wondering why the state of the country keeps getting worse. He then goes in length and talk about the hike in prices of food. Rudeboy speaks of the same people being in the government always without any positive change in the country.

He went on then, on to ask the government officials who he termed “oga” why they keep the suffering the masses. He went at length to talk about everything currently happening. 

The most shocking part of the song is where rudeboy starts giving the government some conditions they must fulfill before the country begin functioning well again.

Some powerful quotable lyrics includes

Oh ha
