Lyrics: Falz x Dice Ailes – Alakori

[Intro]
Yeah…
[Pre-Chorus – Dice Ailes]
All the girls know Gucci, Prada lo wo si’se lo wo s’ori
Came through dripping, about me
Bout me you came to test me, e ba mi o
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
[Chorus – Dice Ailes]
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’America to mi
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’Canada to mi
[Verse 1 – Falz]
Tell me, how much you are having in your account,
Look at paper we are packing with rubber band
How much is even the whole amount,
That’s what I am trying to understand
You aff insult me, you should apologise,
Ko s’omo ti mo toast ti o come alive
To ba fe ma long, mo le summarise,
To ba loun tire gan, mo le fukanize
In your life don’t you ever come my side,
It’s in my front that you want to come and shine
If you lack, o le lo ma try, your girlfriend would vanish before your eyes
All the cloth on my body cost a arm and a leg,
You wan dey ask me if I go write the cheque
What’s wrong with you? Are you mad?
Ah Are you mad?
[Pre-Chorus – Dice Ailes]
All the girls know Gucci, Prada lo wo si’se lo wo s’ori
Came through dripping, about me
Bout me you came to test me, e ba mi o
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
[Chorus – Dice Ailes]
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’America to mi
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’Canada to mi
[Verse 2 – Falz]
Issokay, issokay, you no dey for this lane,
You no get pepper wey make brain
E lo ni, e lo ni, you no get umbrella, tele mi, I’m about to make it rain
Ah, mo tin bo, mo tin bo, Authorised like a Gomina, Gomina but mi o kowo je
I’m showing off, real work, I work hard and I no dey stop,
If you like you can call the cops, they know the job
Who wan talk say we no dey ball, we dey chop,
Check the bar, omo no be bluff, no be bluff
These brothers don’t know enough, they need to stop
But you don’t know we run the city, what a pity,
Cos I don’t really like this publicity, what a pity, what a pity,
You don’t know? What a pity
[Bridge]
Eyin araye o, e wa gbami o,
Won lo n jimi wo, won fe jomi o,
Won lon wo mi o, won lo n sho mi o,
Won fe to mi o
Oh what a life, (what a life)
Dey want to dey my life
No no dey want to be my wife
E be like say dey want to look alike
[Pre-Chorus – Dice Ailes]
All the girls know Gucci, Prada lo wo si’se lo wo s’ori
Came through dripping, about me
Bout me you came to test me, e ba mi o
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
Can’t control me, can’t control, I’m angry, can’t console me
[Chorus – Dice Ailes]
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’America to mi
Alakori o, o shako simi,
To ba ko simi, sho l’aso to mi,
Sho l’omo to mi, shori motto mi o,
Sho lo s’Canada to mi

Falz’s “The Experience 2” was last weekend. This song was released in anticipation of the show. He features Dice Ailes in this new track titled Alakori. Alakori is a fine blend of Afropop and Hip Hop. Immediately we started reviewing the song, we seem to fall in love with the song (talk about love at first hearing?). Alakori is a song about bragging rights and self-eulogy. They were apparently throwing subliminal messages at a certain group of people.

 

 

 

 

Positives

Alakori starts with Dice Ailes singing while the instrumentals played softly along. This is actually one of the fewer songs in which the vocals and instrumentals start at the same time. There was also no point of transition nor even a change of tempo/rhythm as the song progressed except when it was time for Falz to sing.
The song talks about how they should really not be tried as they have some excess money lying around to spend and oppress whosoever wanted to start oppressing them first. As usual, Falz made use of his satirical comic reliefs in the song and it made the song even more engaging. Furthermore, during the review, we found the plot development to be nice and enjoyable.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song are quite superficial. There is nothing deep about the song but hey, that is what the song is all about right?
Furthermore, the chorus was sung in Yoruba, which may be a problem for some potential fans to really enjoy and understand the music.
After a while, it felt like the song begun to kind of not be as interesting as it was when we started the review. This may be due to the nature of the chorus and the repetitiveness. Or it may just be because we listened to it too many times back to back.

Bottom Line
 

If the language is no barrier for you, you may as well enjoy it to the fullest without worrying about what Dice Iles was saying in the chorus. All in all, this is a very interesting song and we absolutely recommend it for your listening pleasure.
