Omawumi teams up with Flavour N’Abania for “Bottom Belle” – Listen to her brand new single now!

Published

New music alert!
While we are still “grooving” to “If You Ask Me”, Omawumi has just released a new single titled “Bottom Belle“.
The song features red hot artiste Flavour N’Abania.

Find out more about the vibe and inspiration for this track below.

“Bottom Belle is a special song,” the feisty diva explains. “It is my witty way of telling the story of an opinionated young Nigerian woman who wants and fully intends to enjoy her life. This is a song you’ll rock to at the local hangout, the club or even the village square!”

Bottom Belle has a feel good vibe, which is driven by a smooth highlife beat. The song has an unmistakable club feel, merging native sounds with a cosmopolitan edginess that would prove irresistible to music lovers. The song tells the story of a young woman being wooed and how expensive she is to maintain. She tells her ‘toaster’ to prove himself a ‘chairman’ by taking her shopping and buying her a pair of bell-bottom trousers and other things that would make her happy.

Kporokoto master Flavour never fails to impress, and he does the same in this single. Playing the role of the ‘Chairman’, Flavour’s vocals take the listener straight to the dance floor as he boasts of his wealth in different currencies and how he plans to spend it on her as long as she makes him happy and dances to his tunes.

Listen to Omawumi feat. Flavour N’Abania – “Bottom Belle”

      No, you just said what you feel, not “the truth,” which is an objective fact, as opposed to your subjective position.

    The original song is an old Ghanaian highlife sung in Twi and made around the early 70s. trying to see if i can find it on youtube. I remember some of the words though. ‘Bonse biribi reba ooo, Bonse ye ye’ (Bonse, something is coming, Bonse ye ye). beautiful old highlife song. she killed it!

    Real nice old highlife/hiplife resucitated at the right time. The original song “bottom belle” was done by legendary Herbert Udemba from Owerri. I hope his Children get royaties from this song ‘cos this song will do really well.

    Nigerians, @ home and in the diaspora! Enough is enough. When are we going to finally start recognizing our musical originators and past geniuses that gave us d blueprint 2 our now near world famous “NAIJA MUSIC”? This song (bottom belle) was ORIGINALLY created and performed by HERBERT UDEMBA, a super music pioneer who is currently residing in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria (yes, he’s still alive). A cover of the same song was also done a few years back by the Owerri Bongo Music artist, Sunny Bobo.

    Most other countries give credit 2 song originators and creators and it’s high time Nigerian artists and music bloggers start doing the same as it will help educate our youngsters and make our efforts more appreciated as is d case in d U.S and other western countries where appreciation and acknowledgement of d work and works of their musical originators and pioneers is the norm. Because we are still developing, music wise, d debate on intellectual property rights and its infringement has not been in the forefront, so, let us at least, give credit 2 d originators, since unlike their western (U.S, Europe) counterparts, they are not seeking court injunctions and huge damages.

    Omawumi must respect intellectual property rights and credit d originators properly. Flavour should do the same as well to PIONEERS like Rex Lawson (Ashawo, Nwababy), Nze Dan Orji and d Peecocks (MC Loph Eulogy), Chief Osita Osadebe (Ebezina-fuel subsidy).. Let’s wise up people.. Educate the youth and appreciate art by giving credit to whom it’s due- we don’t only always have to wait for lawsuits to be compelled to comply with simple protocols.

      Ehhhh we all get your point and to be truthful I don’t even know more than half of the music pioneers you just mentioned. It looks like you know a lot concerning this music thing and the pioneers/geniuses/music originators so why don’t you start your own music blog so you can educate people like me that don’t have an idea. Do you have to wait for admins of already existing music blogs to do it. As a matter of fact not many people know about these guys you just mentioned because back in the day there was really no means of advertisement for musicians. This is one problem we humans have, you’re screaming enough is enough, but you’re waiting for a certain “someone” to do something about it, when you, yourself can do something about it. Start up your own blog and educate the youth. If you can’t do something about it, who will?

    • Gidi

      February 8, 2012 at 1:45 am

      i see your point and i concur.
      Even a shout out akin to the kind of stuff Sound Sultan did on that track in SS4 where he sampled Ebenezer Obey song would have been apt in most of the cases you noted.
      It is amazing because most fans actually think these modern tracks are original and a re denied an opportunity to embrace the originals and appreciate the roots from which these modern artistes have found inspiration.

      you missed part of the point.
      He is not laying the blame wholly at the feet of the bloggers. The larger portion of the blame lies at the feet of the artistes themselves.
      Look at the Sound Sultan example i gave, despite not being Yoruba i searched for the original Obey track and listened to it.

    February 8, 2012 at 1:42 am

    I love Omawumi but this rehash of an excellent original seems mediocre at best.
    I think she could have done better.
    She makes pidgin sexy but this effort is not good enough in my opinion.
    seems a lazy effort.

    February 8, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    i love omawunmi’s originality n of course flavour nabania is literally an exceptional FLAVOUR but dis song shaaaaaaaa am not feeling it like dat i actually expected more considering the collabo of two originals but because i love dem both its a slap on the wrist

  41. ItsMee

    February 9, 2012 at 11:10 am

    I totally agree with @Ozioma. I love Omawumi and her voice, but I am also aware that this song was actually done by someone else. Also, Rex Jim lawson is one of my favourite Niger delta artiste.. flavour didnt acknowledge him in that Nwababy song, although he gave credit to Osadebe on the Osundi Owendi song.. Bottom line, give honour to who honour is due.. simple! (Omawumi, Flavour and all others, thanks for bringing these songs out and beautifying them with ur talent, but pls o.. rmbr the originator)..

    We love y’all still!

  42. Mimi

    February 9, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    I LOVE this song! I love the sound, and its def not your typical naija highlife song. I will be jamming to this soon as I get it in my iTunes, so, I give it three thumbs up.

    Hey
    I am new to this blogsite and its Omawumi’s music thats brought me here!! I am not sure I care what influences an artiste’s music as long it rocks and has decent lyrics. I am a fan of Omawumi, and she just has a carefree everyday street style that I connect with. The lads at the office love this track and we have a little joke going on about ‘Adebisi Konga’!!! 🙂 Rock on Omawumi, I dare say!!!!

    What of this guy called Laba Sosseh from Gambia. He did a version of Bottom Belle as well. Which is the oroginal betwwen his version and Herbert Udemba’s? Can anyone enlighten us please? Also, I don’t agree with the meaning of Bottom Belle being ‘bell bottom trousers’. Sounds from listening to the different versions that it might be a sort of drink? Can anyone shed light please? Good effort by Omawumi/Flavour. I agree say dem for try mention the original fathers wey do the song in the past.
