“Wait oh, wait oh, omo no dey make me to dey wait oh
Escape oh, escape oh yea, I no go let you to escape eh
Sibebe uhh Simbobo, onibo uhh Simbobo
Onibo uhh Simbobo, onibo, yea yea yea
Sibebe uhh Simbobo, onibo, uhh Simbobo
Onibo uhh Simbobo, onibo, yea yea yea”

An interesting collaboration from D’Tunes and Teni fresh out of her single, Case. Apparently in this song again she says she can do anything for the guy. We will really like to meet the guy that makes Teni feel this way.

Positives

The melody of the song as this jazz and highlife feel, a good blend if we do say so ourselves. We feel perhaps older people will enjoy this song, it also has that afro juju feel our parents used to listen to back then.
The instrumentals of the song are actually well varied and balanced. Nothing spectacular but enough to make an overly boring song a little bit interesting. We enjoyed the infusion of Jazz at the ending part of the song. It was a welcome addition to a seemingly boring and long song.
Teni's vocals are perhaps one of the best parts of the song. Audible and appealing.
It's a great thing the song does not have a video, we really cannot imagine the song with a video that will keep us interested. WEll, unless it has an old-school setting with black and white, then perhaps it would have fit the theme.

Negatives

The song intro starts with the beat and teni's voice at the same time. The intro is not particularly interesting and if anything it is boring. Perhaps this is because of the slow tempo of the song? But really, we have heard songs of slow tempo with way better intros.
The lyrics of the song is mostly in Yoruba and this may just be a turn off for many. The Yoruba in this song does not sound funky or say like the way Simi or Olamide use Yoruba in their songs. I am Yoruba and |I am not overly interested in the song.
For a song of this nature, two minutes and a couple of seconds will have been sufficient, however, the song os four minutes and a few seconds long. That in itself can discourage one from listening to the song.
