Plot Synopsis

This is a love song by Davido who insists he can do just about anything for love: even goun g as far as serving jail time for his 'Nwa Baby'

Verses

2

 

Davido is on fire and we’re certain he knows it. OBO keeps dropping hits upon hits without taking a break (not even for NYSC eh OBO?). Just about all (almost) his songs are hits for different reasons. Nwa baby? Errm we are not too sure, maybe we have to use our inner ears to listen to this one before we are convinced. Well, let’s explore…….

Positives

We get you, Davido you love her (NWA Baby) to the extent of even accompanying her on a heist and serving jail time for her.
Davido came through once again (as expected) in terms of performance and delivery. Once could hear the passion in his voice as he delivered each note as expected.

Negatives

Davido where do we start from?
let's start at the very beginning; it was surprising to see Davido surprised when he heard gunshots. Well, what did you expect OBO? there's no way a sultry looking girl in spaghetti will go and rob a store without any form of resistance from the occupants. The beginning obviously wasn't convincing for us and we were left wondering if David was actually surprised if his NWA baby went to rob or she was being resisted.
"I got locked up, they won't let me out, but you let me out"
This line is actually ironic, from the way we see it, Davido was locked up because of his Nwa Baby (the love goggles are really clogging his vision).

Bottom Line
 

There was so much hype surrounding the single "Nwa Baby" (we're looking at you Davido's PR team) that perhaps got the expectations too high and the reception of the song was divisive amongst fans and even here at the office.
This is definitely not a miss from Davido but we are not sure its a hit either: we are sitting on the fence on this one. I guess we are used to getting so much quality from Davido that an average song seems like a miss. By all means, this is not a miss from Davido. Just needs more tinkering (probably too late for that anyway).
