Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo has made a rendition of some hit tracks of singers Asake, Kizz Daniel, and Burna boy while using them as a reference during his speech at the ongoing UNTWO World Tourism Organisation Global Conference in Lagos.
Yemi Osinbajo in his speech described music as a global language and entertained guests with the tracks like Buga won by Kizz Daniel, last last by Burnaboy, and Organize by Asake.
Kemi Filani reports that during the rendition of Buga Won, many of the guests joined the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo in the chorusing and cheered him.
“Music is a global language that is enjoyed even when you don’t understand the language or lyrics. How many people know Kizz Daniel’s Buga won? Let me see u lolo buga won…(guests join him in singing it) today, today Nigerian music is been danced all over the world.
Buga won is a Yoruba phrase meaning, show off your success, don’t think you are not doing well, flaunt your success no matter how little it seems to others… we all know Burna boy, he sang last last, everybody will chop breakfast, there is wisdom in it, it means we all matter at the end. He is the first afrobeat to sell over 500 units in the first 17 weeks of release and is now certified for gold in the USA..” Osinbajo disclosed
The vice president further went on to sing Asaka’e ‘organize’ hit track.
“We also have Asake who sang organize every other day I organize, some of us are wise, every other person overwise, …these songs are street slang in Lagos and all over Nigeria,” Osinbajo stated.
Osinbajo excluded as APC unveils Tinubu’s 400-member Presidential Campaign Council
Weeks ago, Vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo, was noticeably missing as the All Progressives Congress (APC) named its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) for the 2023 candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu.
The council list, which comprises about 400 members, was unveiled by the PCC Secretary, James Faleke, a federal lawmaker.
Conspicuously missing is Osinbajo who contested against Tinubu during the APC primary. The VP was Commissioner for Justice when the APC flagbearer was governor.
