Lyrics: Burna Boy – Anybody
I don charge my energy,
I no get time for no enemy
Tori kpe won le tomi
Nothing wey person never see,
Omo nothing wey person never see
Forget, I say fashi
Very soon expecting
Je ka wo gbadi e jemkpe
I dey kaku dey gbese
Jejeli, jeje, jeje
I been dey answer them answer them, yes sir
Now na me them dey answer yes sir
Respect is reciprocal
Even though una know say I special
Anybody, wey no want to soji
Anybody, wey no dey carry body
Knack am something, ah-ah
Knack am something
To ba ta fele, fele
Knack am something
You wan jump bed, you never work
Shey na because me self I never talk?
I look you dey laugh you gan, gan, gan, gi-gi-gan-gan-gan
I sha know say the time go come
Omo I know say the time go come
When you no go fit rely no more
Omo, omo life na turn by turn
Whether you like or not,
Oya ginger me, gbeskele go burst
Ibe je gan, gan oh
Anybody, wey no want to soji
Anybody, wey no dey carry body
Knack am something, ah-ah
Knack am something
To ba ta fele, fele
Knack am something
Very soon expecting
Je ka wo gbadi e jemkpe
I dey kaku dey gbese
Jejeli, jeje, jeje
I been dey answer them answer them, yes sir
Now na me them dey answer yes sir
Respect is reciprocal
Even though una know say I special
Anybody, wey no want to soji
Anybody, wey no dey carry body
Knack am something, ah-ah
Knack am something
To ba ta fele, fele
Knack am something
(Gbese

Anybody, a new track from Burna Boy, his second for the year after the previously released Dangote. This new song is rumoured to be one of the singles to be featured in his new project. An album called African Giant (really Burna Boy?). Anybody is an afro fusion song rich in melody, in fact, we fell in love with the song immediately.

 

Positives

Anybody starts at a fast pace. We love the intro trumpet that played followed by the rich arrays of drums playing different rhythms. Burna Boy's vocal intro also sounds great!
Burnaboy's vocals in the song his great, we liked his rendition of the song. He put a lot of passion in the performance.
The melody of the song seems to be the best part of the song. We loved the free-flowing Afrobeat into Dancehall and back. This is indeed what we call Afro Fusion. The melody of the song is rich, tuneful and memorable. It has that Burnaboy trademark sound that we have all come to love.
The instrumentals are well varied and they did well to keep up with the melody of the song forming a great and harmonizing rhythm.

Negatives

Anybody seems like a rather superficial and showboating song from Burnaboy warning people off because he is special and whatnot?

Bottom Line
 

We absolutely absolutely recommend this song for your listening pleasures, that is if you can tolerate and overlook his overbloated ego.
