    LOL! The song is not earth shattering. Its just okay. But if she was trying to showcase yoruba culture, she had her fabrics and accessories all mixed up. For instance, the beads on the head is more of an edo thing than a yoruba thing. But anyways, good effort.

    she is a very pretty girl then she opens her mouth she cannot sing and shouldnt try to represent yoruba

    Her music is so lovely, esp the ‘love song in yoruba’…@boluji, u aint making any point in that ur comment… Cos, some of u were born and brought in Nigeria even in yoruba land, you could not speak in Yoruba like this lady born in houston USA but brought up in Nigeria, nevertheless, she spoke very well in a simple Yoruba language, kudos to her…
