Nigerian rapper Timaya has just released the music video of his single “I Can’t Kill Myself .” This was one of the tracks that made the cut in his EP “Chulo Vibes,” and occupied the 5th spot. That EP, if you please, had a total of 9 tracks, beginning with “Balance” and ending with “Stoopid.”
“I Can’t Kill Myself ” pushes the same old theme in African and indeed world music: kicking aside all the obstacles on the way in your march to the top, and generally enjoying the good life. You’re not gonna kill yourself over anything. You’re here to flex, to rock this life.
Beyond this, though, the song is actually what you make of it – as in how you interprete it. If you should let it encourage you in your march to the top… encourage you not to give up but to continue to aspire and to rise when you fall, then good. This should count for something.
