Feature: #ThrowBackThursday Music – My Personal Story

I left the office yesterday for home Gbagada at some minutes past 7:30 pm using a public bus. I was lucky to get a good spot in front; just next to the driver and very close to a handsome and sweet-smelling (I can bet that was a very expensive oil perfume) dude. I was so entertained by the cool jamz played by Sound City FM on the radio while hoping the guy starts a conversation with me. Just before I got to Iyana-Oworo, my journey was delayed by a traffic jam. I was just about to scout for funny twitter posts and interesting responses on Quora to take my mind off the traffic when I heard something that gripped my attention.


I heard the sound of two wine glasses click, then the sound of wine being poured into a glass. I thought to myself, “These sounds are familiar.” Then I heard, “Yeah, brand new from Styl Plus crew.” Right off the bat, I screamed within me and smiled from molar to molar broadly. It was “Call My Name” by Styl-Plus; one of my favourite songs back in the day.

As the song progressed, I first started moving my shoulders, then I started tapping my feet. I tried hard to maintain my calm and innocent look, but I completely lost control when it got to the chorus. I heard myself singing so passionately in soprano, alto, and even bass, demonstrating every lyric. I demonstrated holding my ear and even pouring wine when the song lyrics called for it. I also flowed with the rap and made some PSqaure moves with my shoulders. I came back to my senses when the music faded off. No sooner had I told the driver that I would be alighting at the next bus stop than I heard, “Please, can I have your number?” I turned it was “him.”  I apologized for my little craziness and gave him my number.

I enjoy Nigerian music, especially slow and soulful songs. I think Simi is an amazing singer. I like her “Remind Me,” “Love Don’t Care,” and “Smile For Me.” I love Johnny Drille’s “Romeo and Juliet,” and “Wait For Me,” but Styl Plus’ songs just drive me crazy. My impeccable home training gets thrown out through the window once I hear them anywhere – at work, on the streets, in a bus or even at the salon.


Which Nigerian song literally burst your brain whenever you hear it? I would like you to share your thoughts.
