Lyrically- Originality

Faze has got to be my favourite Nigerian male vocalist- only Darey comes close in my opinion and Darey was trained in classical music so I think he’s more about technique than Faze who’s more about talent.

Anyway I’m kicking off Lyrically with him, I wanted to feature Need Somebody but I couldn’t find it anywhere- I guess I’ll have to write out the lyrics myself. Originality is one of my favourite Faze songs. Apart from the inspiring message of the song, I used to use it to drive my brothers crazy. My brothers, especially Obinna like to call me Daze. Yes it sounds similar to Faze… so at the end of the song, I’d chant Daze repeatedly too… they’d get so mad!

Khaki no be leather
Na we own the society
I get ability
Na we be VIP
promoting peace and tranquility

I’m making all the cheddar
People eye dey redder
Since khaki turn to agbada
People know me wella

Na we own the society
I get ability
Na we be VIP
promoting peace and tranquility

    I don’t know why ooo but I’m not big on Dare and my friends think I must have fallen out of space to say that. I like Faze, he is original. I wish naija could have more original artistes…I’m tired of the same tune all the time.
