Hello Everyone ❤️❤️❤️

It's another beautiful week in the afri-tunes community. I am @rukkie and I am glad to be here once again.

For this 88th week, I will be presenting and old song which I stumbled across. It's a song by Yemi Alade titled "Johnny".

The song is a funny one and from the video,I bet we all had a good laugh. I love the beat of the song as it is one that will get you in dancing mode.

Despite the funny part of it, the song gives a deep insight into unfaithfulness and betrayal.

It started with a woman looking for her man named "Johnny". After lots of enquires,she found out that her man is a liar and a cheat who has made promises to other women. One of them was pregnant for him and he is engaged to another.

One of his women expresses her confusion about Johnny leaving her, as well as her hurt and anger at his unfaithfulness. But then even after finding Johnny (with another woman of course), he denies knowing any of them as they fight over him claiming to be the main woman in his life.

The funny thing about this is that even after these women knew of his several affairs with other women, they won't hesitate to go back to him should he choose to be with any of them. Which begs the question "Shey o da suga si ni?" (which is a slang for "Is he that good/sweet or did he add sugar?"

The song is mostly in pidgin but I hope you enjoy my presentation.

Here are some of the lyrics of the song;

Ho ah
Habokoto bokoto eh
Selebobo pon the beat (Selebobo on the beat)
Yemi Alade
It’s Effyzzie baby

Johnny leave me follow Cynthia
And I don’t know what to do
And he talk say I no do am
Like the way Cynthia dey do
Johnny give Uche belle
He talk say he wan marry Nene
Nwokem ke di fe neme
Johnny mo, Johnny mo
I’m looking for my Johnny eh
Where is my Johnny
Johnny mo
Do you know Johnny
If I no see my Johnny
Fefe geme

[Verse 1]
I’m looking for my Johnny
I’m looking for my honey (ya ya ya)
You telling me this, you telling me that
I say this is not for me
Johnny do me conny (Johnny)
Johnny do me conny (Johnny)
He’s doing me this
He’s doing me that
But I no go tell mummy (mummy)

Great choice for this week's presentation! "Johnny" by Yemi Alade is indeed a classic with its catchy beat and humorous yet thought-provoking lyrics.
It's interesting how the women in the song, despite being aware of Johnny's deceit, seem to be drawn back to him, raising the question of what makes him so irresistible. Heheh
