Abiodun is a veteran in the music industry and has contributed to more than 25 records since the mid-1990s. Alarm Don Blow gives you a taste of what to expect from his upcoming album Break Free.
Inspired by his observations and experiences and without being preachy, Abiodun’s song has a moral message that places it within an activist afrobeat tradition.
Its refrain, “alarm don blow”, pidgin English for ‘things have gone awry’, is a call to individuals to do what is right or morally sane, for the society; or to perform their duties as responsible citizens within sociopolitical institutions.
The video was shot on location in Nigeria and Germany by German videographer Mirko Polo. It is a catchy afrobeat rock song with a strong sociopolitical message that places it within an activist afrobeat tradition.
