Lyrics Translation: Understanding the Language of Duncan Mighty and Wizkid’s Fake Love

As pitiful as it sounds but it is the truth. It is the truth that so many music lovers actually vibe to the songs that the artistes keep churning out. They do this without understanding the meaning behind the key elements of the song.

Obviously, the Nigerian music industry is an encapsulating one. It is an industry that welcomes all talented acts regardless of ethnic background. And these artistes do not hesitate to flaunt their prowess in their indigenous languages anytime they have the chance to.

Nigerians vibe to the song so far it sounds good to their ears. In any case there is no generally acceptable rule for how good a sound is. Even being wacky is relative.

Phyno, Olamide, 9ice, D’Banj and the late Da Grin are masters of the game in this regard.

 

FAKE LOVE

Duncan Mighty and Wizkid’s Fake Love was rendered in three different languages; English, Igbo and Duncan Mighty’s native Ikwerre language.

Before Beyond The Vibes review the song which was produced by rave Producer, Killertunes, here is the lyrics of the song and what the non-English words therein means.
