This is another week of our lovely and amazing event on Hive, Afri-tunes, and this is the 23rd week.

As at 10pm yesterday (Wednesday 17 August), I was still indecisive with regard to my choice song for the Week.

I wanted to play a contemporary mix like Overload by Marvins, but it seems I wasn't in the mood for it. So I crossed that off my mind.

Then I decided to explore songs that aren't too recent but not too Old. Flavour was the first musician that came to my mind.

I remember his song Ada Ada, and I tried it out first. It wasn't giving me what I wanted, but it led me to Golibe.

Well these two songs are very connected and somehow compliment each other.

On the one hand, "Ada Ada" is an eulogy to a beautiful bride who is getting married in the Traditional way. Flavour, in this song, praises her beauty in different ways, and he also speaks of how everyone has gathered to celebrate this day with her.

On the other hand, Golibe, which was released 2 years after Ada Ada, is also an eulogy to a beautiful bride just like Ada Ada. The only difference is that Flavour also speaks of the personal struggle he (the protagonist) took to find his bride.

Well, another notable difference is that, in the former, he names the bride "Ada Ada" (an Igbo name given to every first daughter), but in the latter, at the end of the Golibe song, he listed some names. Well this doesn't mean that the song is only for those bearing the names, rather he is just trying to tell us that so long as you're in the category, then you worth it.

By the way, "Golibe" is an Igbo word that means rejoice.


That is the reason why both songs are used during traditional wedding ceremonies in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.

On my own part, I love Golibe song better and that's why I chose it to share with us on this great day.

I hope you'll enjoy this piece.
