Speaking with briefly with popular Nigerian Disc Jockey, Amazine DJ Nextle (formerly Nestle); he elaborated on why it’s ok to.

 

According to DJ Nextle, song has special effect on people so it’s not smart for business.

 

‘”Gbetu see, it’s ok to sing inspiring and caution songs but when it comes in line with money making, one just have to be smart.

”Don Dada is a brilliant song, but it kills ballers and divas money flaunting spirit, you get me.

 

Timaya is singing what people already know, but playing it over and over is like doing campaign, this will eventually lead to caution especially during club days which are Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

 

Its not like we won’t play it as instructed but not just during when money is supposed to rain.

Verse one says;

Telli mi, telli me, telli me how you feel eh
The people you dey help say na dem go f*** you up eeh
Make una telli me, telli me, telli me how you feel eh eh ai (leggo)
The people you show love to na dem go f*** you up eh

Today broke is a f*** up (ehn)
I get guys weh I bring up
I pick dem from the bus stop
Now if I call them no dey pick up
(for the gbedu weh we dey)
All these guys weh dey insult (continue)
So nice and I won’t stop
My level can never drop
I’m their role model I’m their big boss
(for the gbedu weh we dey)

Oooh oo, all the money weh I get I wanna hold it
I don’t wanna go to the club one night and blow it
(hear me now)
Yehh! The best investment is on yourself oo
I don’t wanna hear say nobody come pick my call no more

 

While verse two says;

Every day Everyday Everyday I just dey go
No time no time
Dem dey hate, dem dey hate
Dem dey see say me I get so much loving
I don’t understand how you help a brother
And he turn him back on you
Every day still I die they can never see me fall, that one na lie

Oohh oo, all the money in the world I wanna hold it (stoopid)
I don’t wanna go to the club one night and blow it (hear me now)
Yehh! The best investment is on yourself oo
I don’t wanna hear say nobody come pick my call no more
