Love It/Hate It: Davido and Focalistic’s Champion Sound

November 19, 2021

While we’re still bumping to “Ke Star (Remix)” by Davido and Focalistic (?), OBO has come again with “Champion Sound”. We decided to ask Nigerians what they thought about the song for Love It/Hate It! 

Florence – “It’s not giving”

I feel like this is the only amapiano song I wouldn’t dance to. It’s not giving anything. We shy away from lyrics in Nigeria but this one was too much. There wasn’t a single vibe to be caught here. Hate it, and Davido should start refunding everyone’s  money based on this song.

Chelsea – “I’ll love it when I’m drunk.”

I feel like it’s forced, but if I was drunk, I would totally dance to it just because of the beat. There’s a part that gives major “whine your waist” vibes. My verdict? I’ll love it when I’m drunk, but I’m sober now, so it’s a no for me.

Chuks – “This song signals the end of amapiano for me.”

It sounds like the taste of cow shit. I feel like my ears should be plucked off after listening to this. It’s a desperate attempt to recreate a hit song. Hate it so much! This song officially signals the end of amapiano for me. We can’t come back from this.

Fidel – “This is a certified hit.”

This song slaps! Maybe it’s because it’s still fresh and all, but I really fuck with it. Unrelated sha, but I think the amapiano thing is becoming oversaturated. Everyone is doing it now and at some point, we’ll all get exhausted. That being said, I can already picture myself in the club.

David – “No one is seeing Davido”

There’s a reason Davido is one of the best artists of this generation. He’s doing what no one else is doing aesthetically and sonically. This song just shows that he’s at the top, and no one is seeing him. No one! What if they drop a joint project? That would be insane.
