Something Crucial Brings Kwam 1 and Olamide Together
There hasn’t been any form of feud between veteran Fuji act, Wasiu Ayinde Marshall a.k.a Kwam 1 and award winning singer, Olamide but the duo recently pulled an enormous amount of weight in the former’s new single titled ‘State of the Nation.’
In this new song, the artiste merge two generations of music and the result is a track with impressive lyrics and chemistry between an urban music legend and a rave of the moment.
The song tasks Nigerians to be good ambassadors of the country and indigenous lines like “E gbe Naija laruge... hausa, Igbo ati Yoruba... A like arawa... A fi ase gbojo tori a like garawa” from Olamide bear strong testimony to this.
Kwam 1 also reaiterates this message when he sings, “Ilu Naija o gbodo tu o (which means ‘Nigerian must not fall apart’ when translates from Yoruba into English language).
He also appeals to the youths to play their role in uplifting the nation as well as a broad call to all Nigerians to think deeply.
The veteran singer also laments the suffering of the masses in the midst of plenty. Still on the level of decay in the nation, he also highlights the decay in the Nation’s educational system as well as what he calls ‘a total collapse’ of the country’s healthcare structure. “...security of the nation is in shambles.... A de n paro fun ara wa ape a de n se ijoba (which means ‘and we lie to ourselves that we are running a government’ when translated into English language).
Kwam 1 pulls the song to a thoughtful end by emphasising that what he and Olamide have done in the song is to send a glaring message to those in the position to change the nation for the better. He however adds that if they fail to listen, the Lord God would eventually straighten things out for everyone.
