Eargasm Music: Agbamurere ‘Very Good Choice’ by Oyinkansola

Share

Great music in Yoruba dialect/language  is an absolute turn on for me. When I hear such music, I really don’t know what to do with myself it is sad. The fuji genre also does something to me that is unexplainable. I also happen to LOVE acoustic guitar. This young woman reminds me of when India Arie made her major breakthrough into mainstream here in the USA. I hope she enjoys that kind of success across Africa and beyond. She is definitely one to watch. I have a feeling she might have to join Asa, Ayo and Nneka in Europe to have people who really appreciate her sound and style. Love her Yoruba accent, too, when she speaks English.

The song, for non-Yoruba speakers, is about pursuing your passion despite the odds and the criticisms. Oyinkansola sings about how her father criticizes her of walking around with her guitar with nothing to show for it. He compares her to her mates who are married and successful. Some even have cars, some are doctors etc. She says music makes me happy. My choice is very good. She hits the octaves that make my ear go, “oh Lord!” when she sings, ‘ma korin ti ti ola wole mi oooooooooo,” I get goosebumps. Loosely translated, it means I will sing till I can’t sing no more, till tomorrow comes. I will sing till I reach the steps of the Governor’s (office).

Have you ever wanted something so passionately i.e. what you were born to do? Have you ever had naysayers get in the way? Have you ever had people say, “get practical.” Artists all of your hands should go up.

I am a fan! Enjoy!
