IMAGINE THAT...

They are back! Styl plus has been slamming the radio waves with another hit song. I remember hearing Olufunmi and me and my girls killing the track, absolutely murdering it! We knew all the ooooo's and the ahhhh's and the duro duro baby mi, olufunmi jo woo ohhhh. Okay I’m not Yoruba so apologies for the spellings. It was love at first 'hear'. They have had a few more hits but went underground for a while and P-Square came and stole a bit of the limelight with Busybody but my boys are back with 'Imagine that' which isn't Olufunmi but gets me dancing all the same and of course singing along to the Yoruba lyrics ( I have no idea what I'm saying though!)

Their first full album is due for launch in Abuja on February 25 and in Lagos on March 4. Keep on rocking guys!

CHORUS:

Imagine that, afi gba to se dandan pe ko se mo
Imagine that, pelu gbogbo ife ti mo fi fun
Imagine that, kilo fe ko sele simi to ba lo
Imagine that, to ba lo...
Imagine that, Imagine that

For those who understand, feel free to translate.

ou don't seem like someone that can't speak Yoruba to me with all that Yoruba you have typed out. :) Can't wait to hear the song. Their Olufunmi song made me proud to be Nigerian.

@JOL

I cannot wait to hear the music. I loved Olufunmi:
Olufunmi oh
Ma Kpa me lekun oooh
Olunfunmi Lolaaaa
Ma se fimi sile Lailai
Duro timi oh
Olufunmi lola

I love P-Squared now, only cos last summer Stylplus came to London and they came to one of the clubs i go to regularly. Men, You should have seen them, home-boys were acting like PDiddy meet JayZ topped with Donald Trump all bcos they wanted all of us to leave the VIP for them. TuFace was there too, He's a much nicer person than StylPlus. As for the party, trust us, mini socialites in london (who already feel like celebs in their own rights) left the club and that was the end of the party! Thanks to Styl Plus.

Their current album Expressions is even better than the first one. There is a song called 'Iya Basira' that is just hilarious (its about a bloke who things he has been put under a spell since he spends all his time at Iya Bas's Buka).

Try www.nigerianentertainment.com to listen to Olufunmilola (and other nigerian hip hop hits) online.

Are there any Igbo brothers and sisters who can help me work out what Stylplus are talking about on "She drives me Crazy". I think they have embarked upon a mission to unify the country singlehandedly as the elbum seems to have songs in Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa!
