The third track on Burna Boy’s African Giant is basically a hustler’s Anthem. In this track, Burna Boy talks about how there is no choice but to keep on pushing in order to achieve the desired results.

You can listen to the track below

Positives

Wetin Man Go Do starts with a fascinating and smooth instrumental. It transitions to a fast-paced instrumental in a few seconds.
The song talks about the many challenges of life and how man has no choice but to keep on trying. The message of the song is quite positive.

Negatives

The song is plagued with very repetitive lyrics. Also, generally, the quality of the lyrics could have been better. We feel Burna Boy did not put enough energy into writing the lyrics. The structure is poor and plot development is decent at best.
The song started on a good note, then it waned quickly and we began to lose interest. It ended being a bland song. We struggled to listen to the song. The melody white it was influenced by the Afrobeat genre, it failed to resonate with us. We were just not feeling the vibe. This is one of the few Burna Boy's songs that we will mostly feel indifferent to.

Bottom Line
 

At the end of the day, the song did not do it for us. It is probably that track that e will skip in the African Giant album when it comes on.
