Plot Synopsis

Verses

2

 

“Mo gbadun re o, baby; you know that am your lady
Another round o, baby; don’t delay me!
Ogbeni Adepoju, o lohun feran misi
Iwo lokan mi yan ni; I love you everyday”

What exactly is the meaning of Bana? What we learnt about the song was not expected at all. To [put it in a simple manner, the song is filled with concentrated Yoruba laced Sexual innuendos. At some point, we were shocked at the intensity of the context of the song. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the melody and rhythm of the song. Now let’s get down to the review of the song itself.

Positives

We really love Niniola's sound, she has managed to mix her genre of music from what was originally just known as Alternative Music to a more popular fusion with Afrobeat and Afropop without losing her unique sound. Her type of music is a fresh breath from the more popular styles of music we are used to and it really is a welcome one.
The Melody of the song is one to behold, it blended well with the rhythm of the song. The good thing about Niniola is when her songs come up you immediately recognise her because of her unique vocals and melody, the same can be said for this song.
The beat of the song is also a part we enjoy about the song, we could hear and feel traces of Yoruba influence while still keeping the more popular Afrobeat like sound.
The video of the song is lively, we were tempted to start jumping up and dancing, in fact, we did want to amp the song to the highest volume and just adopt a shaku-shaku day at the office, but hey, we had to get some work done the office.

Negatives

This song is not what you think, yes NIniola may have thought she has fooled us into believing this song is just your normal dance song. Well, we got your back. We are here to reveal to you Niniola's dirty lines in this song in case you do not really care for lyrics or you do not understand because of the language barrier.
Niniola was talking about a certain part of a male body in most of the song and what that part is capable of. Yes, she may have managed to sound a little more refined than a certain "LIL" musician but it does not take away the vulgarity of the message in the song.
