Like poetry, good music soothes the soul. More significantly, the theme of love in a piece of good music goes on to make it nothing short of intriguing. In Wayte, Duru creatively used his storytelling ability to portray this theme. Specifically, in the second verse, he said: “….as I see you for corner, e be like my brain don format ooo.” It is to this effect that he flatters his African Lady to show her how well he loved her at first sight. What a good bad guy!

As a plus, DMW boss, Davido, added his vocals to do some real good stuff. In the third verse, he explained his desires to his lover. He envisioned a scenery where there will be some more intimacy amongst them, doing all they could as lovers and in their privacy. The superstar, in the third line, sang: “picture me baby, me and you on a yacht oo; we are touring all over”. He went ahead to complement it with some good lines. Masterclass!

In all glory and finesse, the song also portrayed the theme of romance. You can tell from how the big guys on the song appreciated their women. Their sweet talks, commendations and heartwarming comparisons did the trick. Peruzzi, in the first verse, begins with “Stay, I’ll stay/ I no mean to bother you/ I get plan to cover you” to show how well he wanted all the romance and commitment. With this, it’s clear that the Heartwork crooner came out bold to express his deepest feeling. Sweet, innit? Yes!

Undeniably, from the highlights above, you can tell that the song will surely be underlined by this factor – the power of love. The artistes, with their joint and creative efforts, expressed clearly the power of love and the extent to which people love. Love is sweet; but when money enter love it’s sweeter. Right? Yes. In the hook, Peruzzi said: “I no send economy, the love cover me”. Davido, also in some parts of the work used lines like “my fashion killer, I go buy you the Tom Ford ooo” and “you no go fly economy, first class ticket to cover you”. As the song goes, Duru also dropped some hot stuff to address the theme. You can’t deny that you don’t want to listen already? No, you can’t.
