Flavour undeniably is one of Nigeria’s iconic musicians. His songs are very unique and attracts global attention. I like him for his originality. He is one of Nigeria’s finest musicians I love listening to their songs.

One of his songs from his recent album Thankful named Golibe has been raking millions of views since it was released December last year. Just within three months this beautiful music video has gained two million views and still counting. The music video features Pete Edochie, one of Nigeria’s legendary movie star and Anna Banner rumored to be Flavour’s girl friend. Below is the lyric of the song with its translation, some beautiful pictures from the music video, and the music video itself. If you have not listened to the song before, surely you will like it. I recommend it to you.

(Intro) Ebeii….Ahaaa….The Don…

 Verse 1:

Otego m chobara nwa di mma m ga-anu = For a long time I have been looking for a good girl to marry.

E don tey I’ve been searching for you = It has been a while I’ve been searching for you

Otego m chobara asa di mma oyoko = For a long time I have been looking for a gorgeous babe.

E don tey I’ve been searching for you = It has been a while I’ve been searching for you

Fortunately, m wee fu nwata di mma = Fortunately, I eventually found a good/gorgeous girl

Anwunta atabeghi ya, baby na sweet pawpaw = Who has never once been bitten by mosquitoes, this babe is sweet pawpaw {here Flavour wants to really emphasize the overall pulchritude of this babe he found. So he rhapsodizes about her superlative beauty by stating that this babe was extraordinarily comely and well-formed that it appears she is altogether without any blemish—without as much as a single mosquito bite bump on her entire body—a seemingly impossible state of affairs judging by how prevalent mosquitoes are in this part of the world. This babe, he maintains, is sweet and fresh-looking like ripe papaya/pawpaw}

Baby get something, nekenu nwata nwelu something = This babe has something, just observe that this babe has something

Achalaugo nwanyi, nwa bu ugegbe oyibo =Aquiline beauty, this babe is an exquisite imported mirror. {Here, Flavour once again digs deep into the language for expressions that convey the magnitude of the lady’s elegance. Achalaugo or Achalaugo Nwanyi is a title/honorific conferred on the most deserving women. It literally means “the Glory of the Eagle”. You see, in Igboland, the eagle is considered the most regal, most rare and most admired of birds. A woman is bestowed with the title Achalaugo if the pervading sentiment concerning that woman is that she is of such rare, stunning physical elegance and appeal. Flavour concludes that the babe in question is comparable to a shiny, imported mirror}

Chorus:

Nwata makata mma lele…….makata makata = Look, this babe is thoroughly ravishing…..completely gorgeous {Flavour could have just said “nwata mara mma” meaning “this babe is beautiful” and left it at that. But check out what he does: in saying and repeating “makata makata mma”, he uses a present continuous form of “to be beautiful” suggesting that her beauty and radiance continues. That is, the lady is abidingly and continuously captivating; she is completely and steadfastly glamorous}

Iyeeeeeeeeeeeeee…………makata makata = Awwwww……..completely and continuously beautiful

Makata mma……………..makata makata = continuously beautiful……overwhelmingly  beautiful

Iyeyeyeee……………….. nwata di mma = Awwwwww………gorgeous babe

I say, nwata makata mma lele…..makata makata = I say, this babe is perpetually alluring…..continuously beautiful

Iyeeeeee…………………makata makata =Awwwww…..overwhelmingly beautiful

Wololooooo……………..makata makata =Whoaaaaa….. overwhelmingly/continuously beautiful

loloooo………………….nwata di mma = lolololo………gorgeous babe

Nwata makata mma…….makata makata (she is so beautiful)=This babe is completely beautiful………continuously beautful

Makata mma…………….makata makata (she is so beautiful)=continuously beautiful……..continuously beautiful

Iyeeeeeee (baby m eee)……..makata makata, nwata di mma = Awww (my baby)…..completely gorgeous, this babe is gorgeous.

I say nwata makata mma……makata makata = I say, this babe is perpetually alluring…..continuously beautiful

Iyeeeeeeeee…………………..makata makata = Awwwww…..overwhelmingly beautiful

Nwata makata mma…………makata makata = continuously beautiful …overwhelmingly  beautiful

Lololooo……………………..nwata di mma = lolololo………gorgeous babe

(Chorus repeats)

Verse 2:

Golibe ……….Golibe = Luxuriate……..Luxuriate {Golibe means to enjoy oneself without stint; to revel; to relish one’s good fortunes without reservation. Here, Flavour is telling the lady in question to bask in the glow of her superlative beauty and good fortune; to luxuriate because of her exceptionally favorable circumstance}

Your mama born you well= your mother birthed you into good fortune {this is to be understood as being born with a silver spoon in one’s mouth. Flavour is saying that the girl in question was born into favor and good fortune [presumably because she was a ravishing beauty]}

Golibeyoyoyoi, nwata golibe =Luxuriateeeeeee, babe luxuriate

Ugegbe m oo,  golibe na mama yi musili yi ike =Oh my Mirror, revel because your mother birthed you well.

Golibeyoyoyoi, mma si na Chi = Luxuriateeeeee for beauty comes from God

Baby get something, nekenu nwata nwelu something = This babe has something, just observe that this babe has something

Anwunta atabeghi ya, baby na sweet pawpaw = Who has never once been bitten by mosquitoes, this babe is sweet pawpaw

Baby get something, nekenu nwata nwelu something = This babe has something, just observe that this babe has something

Achalaugo nwanyi, nwa bu ugegbe oyibo = Aquiline beauty, this babe is an exquisite imported mirror

Transition:

{Now, the gorgeous damsel that is the inspiration for this song could realistically have had any name. Her asset was her beauty and charm and not necessarily her name. Not wanting to limit himself by mentioning just one Igbo name, Flavour decides to throw in a few names to stand in for the thousands of beautiful female names out there—a masterful way of dedicating this song not just to one woman but to womankind everywhere.}

 So mma = simply beautiful

Ugegbe makata….. so mma = Ugegbe (Mirror) is beautiful…..simply beautiful.

Adaugo makata……so mma = Adaugo (Eagle Daughter) is beautiful….simply beautiful.

Iyawo makata………so mma = Iyawo (Wife) is beautiful…..simply beautiful

Nneka makata……so mma = Nneka (Mother is the Greatest) is beautiful….simply beautiful.

Ogechi makata………so mma = Ogechi (God’s Time Is the Best) is beautiful…simply beautiful

Njideka makata…….so mma =Njideka (What I have Is The Greatest) is beautiful…simply beautiful.

Adaolisa imakata……so mma =Adaolisa (Daughter of God) is beautiful…simply beautiful

Nkeiru makata………so mma = Nkeiru (The future is better) is beautiful…simply beautiful

Chinaelo makata…….so mma = Chinaelo (God Thinks of me) is beautiful..simply beautiful

Chinenye makata……so mma = Chinenye (God gives) is beautiful….simply beautiful.

Chikaodili imakata…..so mma = Chikaodili (Set aside for God) is beautiful…simply beautiful

Uh-huh………….so mma (5 times) {Here, Flavour does not mention a name but either fortuitously or by design, anyone (especially his female fans) can insert their own names—if they can get it to harmonize with the song—and in so doing, personalize this beautiful song.}

Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah
