So for some days now there has been much hype on my timeline about some song called jonzing world. By now, I’ve been let down so much by all the hype publicists do for their artists that I didn’t even get my hopes up but yesterday, the song was released and people not on my timeline were tweeting “the song is a jam”, “I’ve got it on repeat” etc and I was of course seeing it on my timeline ’cause some of their publicists whom I follow were of course retweeting the praises. Oya now yours truly requests for the link to the song and a lovely someborri sends the song to me.
I repeat ’cause there had to be some mistake somewhere
I’m in awe.
I now imagine the taste of shit that must be on a lot of tongues.
I contemplate writing this piece but I decide not to.
I woke up this morning to a mail from buzzletter the truspot magazine and the heading for their mail was:
“D’Prince premieres “Jonzing World” with Jesse Jagz and WizKid”
and I’m like this has got to be interesting. The first line in the publication reads “There is no reason why this song should not be one of the best collaborations of 2010…….” I could go no further. Hold up. WTF!!! Are these people kidding me?? Have they listened to the song?? Its one thing to say you like the song(I mean who am I to mess with YOUR opinion) and its another thing to put best collaboration in a piece on the song. Are u on cheap crack?? Do you know what it means to be the best?? Infact I haven’t read such blasphemy in a long while. Do you know why we call Tupac the best at what he did?? Do you think it had anything to do with the instrumentals he worked on?? I know a lot of people who don’t care about what you say in a song as long as they can nod their heads to it. Now those people would never write a piece on a song ’cause frankly, all they listen to are the beats used. For you to make such a statement, you must have analyzed the song and gone like DAMN!! these people can “spit” mehn!!. I assure you if that was your reaction to this song, you need to go check yourself into the nearest psych ward for immediate evaluation. Don’t worry I shall go through the pains of delivering the complete lyrics to this song for your impartial judgement. I’m in serious awe sha. What won’t people publish so they get on the good side of these artists?? When I say Psquare’s videos are terrible, some people say “why are you hating, can u compare their videos to the other crappy videos out of Naija??”. If only they knew how much I loved Psquare. You can’t send your son to a school where in his class there are only two Nigerians and ’cause he came last but one and the other Nigerian came last, you say he did good. That’s just bullshit.
Ok here are the lyrics to Jonzing world. My people help me and read and decide if this song deserves to be put anywhere near the word “best”.
They wan jonze o(4X)
(Somethng in yoruba) omoba abi they wan jonze o
Who no know me omoba abi they wan jonze o
Who am I who am I who not Indiana Jones o
Prince is here, omoba abi they wan jonze o
Its a Jonzing world(8X)
If I kolombi ur sister she follow me on twitter
Original babysitter she wan use me play gita
I told her I know the Prince eh and Mr Wiz eh
My name is Jargo, baby you know I’m too bad o
She acting Mercy Johnson, Jessy is just jonking
I got the magic Johnson, who am I Micheal Johnson
She said I know my brother she don chop my burger
Jonzing she wan stop my flowing
Yankee my glo is roaming
Everyday anyday I’m jonzing
Its weezy baby I’m jonzing
Mmmm….ur girl see how my face looks
Then she ask me on facebook
I give her my pin then I ping her
Then she follow me on twitter
Mmmm…wizyzy deh and jessyjety deh
Plus D’Prince is here so follow me go baby no delay
Come let me do chocolaty
Keep them boys on a waiting
Dem just gonna be hating
‘Cause of ur figure eight
Welcome to my world are you into cartoons
It is colourful and bright like we live in the moon
Its a jonzing occupation
You feeling the formation
Wizy, jags and omoba we be like animation
Eh please please please please
Just dey jonze eyo
Wizzy wizzy and Jesse Jags eyo
The prince of effizy
And chocolate city
You no say e no easy
Chorus till end.
Now do you see what I mean?? The instrumental on this song is just off the hook n gets u nodding but lyrically, its just effed up so to call it one of the best collaborations of 2010 must mean you are on that high grade kush.
