    Even una no sure sef because you put it in question form “bow down?” Love the pictures, Oluchi is gorgeous but bow down? Abeg, my knees dey touch grown to worship Abba Father and last time I checked no be Oluchi create the universe. Beyonce got back lash for that song which quickly faded away from air play and to attach that to Oluchi takes away from this promo. Just sayin’

      Thank you for the unsolicited advise. I do believe that you just needed to say something no matter how inconsequential and now that you have done so, will we now get a break? Have a nice weekend hang as well, T. POOF!

    After watching the video, I’m wondering who the heck Remi
    Adetiba is…..dang!! And how tall is he? Na wah sha….correct
    people dey this planet earth! On another note, I find it
    interesting/ironic that Fela’s music was used to score a shoot
    promoting the strength of the modern African woman. Fela was known
    for is misogynistic ways and messages in his music….most
    obviously in “African woman/Lady” (used here as well). Not like I
    see anything wrong with the ‘concept’, I just find it quite

      Fela was not misogynistic. He was heavily criticizing the westernization of the African woman. In fact he would laugh at this photoshoot. She is supposed to be the African woman…with the funny paint on her face and the weave in her hair.

      Lady was the Western woman, African woman is the African woman. The point of his song in Lady is that the West think they invented feminism, yet their women want to do everything for themselves except opening door and pulling out chairs. Our African women are market women…women who DO everything for themselves

      Yh I found that contradictory too , but I guess they were trying to use a soundtrack by a Nigerian. Yh if you like say he “wasn’t misogynistic he was criticising westernisation” most of his songs were insulting to women and we all know that most ‘non-western’ traditions/beliefs/acts don’t favour women or are little belittling or prejudiced towards woman so don’t sugarcoat it. I’m not anti-Fela I like his beats, I think he’s pretty bad-ass but let’s be honest his songs were misogynistic. Just like some rappers have lewd and offensive lyrics that we still bop out heads to. It doesn’t make it less offensive. Oluchi looks boss though, 2 thumbs up!!!!! s
