“Why” is musical musing on Nigeria’s political (and correspondingly economic and social) depreciation. We are supposedly so backward that a blackout was the only evidence the rapper needed to know he was back in Nigeria.
This is unlike London in the United Kingdom, from where he made his trip. In London the streets are so bright at night that he would never need to drive his car with the headlamp at full illumination.
There is a depressing lilt in much of the song. Listen to this lines, for example: What if I tell you ‘I was right’/ And I tell you ‘you were wrong?’/ That everything will be alright/ But only inside my song.
But only inside my song! Buy hey, Victo AD still wants you to vote. But do it right: Don’t sell your votes! This has been, in part, the cause of our discombobulation.
