“I’ll be there when you wake up
See your face with no make up
Baby we will never break up
Space in my chest that you take up
You make my heart go tungba
You will never call a taxi
I’m gonna give you a car key
I don’t mind if your head is nappy
As long as you make me happy (ehen)”
BOJ and Ajebutter22 released a joint album together.titled Make E No Cause Fight. Tungba is one of the songs in that album and it is a love song. They Were basically trying to say the girl was making their heart do Tungba (the girl is making their heart beat fast).
The song starts with an array of strong beats followed by Ajebutter22's vocals. Not a bad intro for a love song. It made us want to stick around to listen to the remaining parts of the song the song.
However, looking beyond the language restrictions, the song is quite straight to the point and we were able to know it was a love song.
The melody of the song is lovely, we enjoyed the Afropop sound we were getting from the song. Ajebutter did try to include some hip-hop sound into the song.
We really did like BOJ's vocals on this one, he came through with a unique sound and some expressiveness in his vocal rendition.
This is a love song. for some that are not fluent in Yoruba, you may not quickly get. So there is the factor of Language limits.
