SONIC DISASTER!

Jojo pawon, juju pawon, Titi pawon, Kiki pawon
Tola pawon, Yeye pawon, Bibi pawon, Jojo pawon
[Bridge]
Give me back oh baka boom boom, wa gun bike oh like va voom voom
How you doing, how are you you, je n shina is like ta yun yun

Waist tiny like London road, baka big like Dubai road, body hot you dey make man cold

Baby shey you go wet my plant, like a farmer oh my God
[Chorus]
Ewele, ewele happen kile’pon, to tobi to yi

All my sexy ladies, pawon, pawon, pawon, all my sexy mamas, pawon, pawon, pawon

[Outro]
Give me back oh baka boom boom, wa gun bike oh like va voom voom

The End!!!

There is a new craze going on on Social Media. Girls are literally losing their home training because of the PawonChallenge. Just go to either Twitter or Instagram and search for #PawonChallenge and you just may see someone you know shaking their bum viciously in a position that can only be achieved by a seasoned athlete! Pawon simply means use your big bum to kill that, this is self-explanatory from the graphical representation of the artwork.

 

Positives

Pawon starts with a lot of indigenous instruments playing. This was followed accordingly by Olamide's vocals. There was nothing special about the lyrics of the song really.
The vocals of the song were just there, it did seem to suit the song. Let's just say the vocals of this song won't earning it any extra brownie points.
The instrumentals of the song seemed to be the only saving grace of the song. It has some depth in the richness of song, managing to blend our traditional sounds to a more Western sound.

Negatives

Pawon is, without doubt, a vulgar, objectifying of women at the highest level possible. We were really not impressed with any single part of the song. A lot of sexual innuendoes; the song just doesn't do it for us. The quality of lyrics are poor and we were not really impressed by the structure of lyrics. On the brighter side, the song does seem to have a decent plot development, except that what the development is about is just as bad as the lyrics of the song.
The melody of th song does not impress us either. We were left wondering if that was ow the song was really supposed to sound. The genre of the song is neither Hip Hop, Afropop and neither Afrobeat, it seemed to drow most of its influence from the 'Azaman' sound. After a while, the song started sounding horribly in our ears.

Bottom Line
 

A song we would rather delete from our playlist. We do not look forward to listening to this song any time soon again. It was a lazy attempt without any musical life!
