So this week I stumbled upon what I consider to be the most awesome Igbo song in the history of Igbo songs, second only to Obodo.
Anam achikwanu by Ill Bliss, featuring Phyno.
I'm not a music person so whenever I find a song I really like it's an Earth-shaking moment for me.
I was so excited to hear Igbo used in such a sick rap hook, and while I didn't care much for Ill Bliss's English lyrics, I couldn't stop singing along to Phyno's Igbo chorus.
A-Mazing. Absolutely Amazing.
So, once the excitement wore off, I realised I had no idea what Phyno was saying. He was clearly speaking Igbo but I couldn't for the life of me understand what he was saying.
I had an Igbo challenge, and so I took it on.
Here's my analysis of Anamachikwanu's Igbo lines and if you've been asking the same question, or if you're not Igbo, you'll be glad to find out what those lyrics mean.
Sorry there's quite a bit of background noise
Now enjoy the awesomeness of Anamachikwanu with your new found knowledge of the lyrics.
