Omawumi unleashes new single “Butterflies” | WATCH the Video



We love it when new music comes out at the very beginning of the year! The confidence and boldness of the artiste shines through and that’s certainly the case here as Omawumi has just released her new single “Butterflies“.

The release of the ballad is instantly accompanied with the video directed by Chris Hernandez for Bobby Boulders Films.

      Sorry, not feeling this at all. The only reason everyone is ranting and raving is because the standard is so low in this country. Yes, she has a great voice but is this really the best she can do with it? She looks rough all the time, so now she’s finally wearing a decent dress without her cornrows, everyone is all excited. If this is the best Naija has to offer then its no wonder we don’t have any true cross over artists! My two coins bella. If you like don’t post as usual!

    It’s a waste of talent if you have a wonderful voice but release music with no content. A lot of Nigerian artists are guilty not only the recently accused artist. Thank you Omawumi for showing that we can make good music.

    She has a beautiful voice but her rendition / production on this particular one is somewhat off. BUT beautiful video with ‘real’ 100% blacks, how refreshing?!!!

    Yet some say we are picking on women musicians’ lyrics. I hate the idea that I must support you without reason just because we already picked on in many ways.

    Anyways, great job, Omawumi. Your growth with each album is exactly how an artiste should be. Leave us guessing. Love it.

    This should be the theme song if they ever do a movie on the whole Toke, Maje and Anita story

      I wonder why women are always held to a higher and more critical standard. Will all the whack songs the male artists put out there no one seems to bat an eyelid but our female artists on the other hand are supposed to be Shakespeare and James Baldwin combined. Tired of the hypocrisy.

    I thought the name of the song is Butterflies. Why does the title in the intro say Butterfly ?

    I was going to read through comments and decide whether or not the video was worth wasting my data on but I know better now. That’s how I read terrible comments about Justin sky and wizzy’s collabo..someone even said she needed voice coaching sessions, only for me to stumble on it a few days ago on tv and I actually enjoyed it! Because of the awful comments I read here, I scrutinised every note and every word she sang..I don’t think she needs voice coaching sessions. So I’ll just watch this video anyways and form my own opinion.
