INTRO
The artist dedicates the song to Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, a Nigerian and African icon in afrobeat music. The artist of this song has used the title, as well as the buildup of this song from Fela’s ‘double wahala’ released in Fela’s 1974 Confusion album.

Huh! Huh! Huh! Ori o mi Eleda mi….(Eleda mi ye o) Aaah ah! This song is dedicated to fela anikulapo kuti Musical Taliban…. Number one Obodo ro bo do!
Huh! Huh! Huh!
Ori o mi
Eleda mi….(Eleda mi ye o)

VERSE
The artist takes a subtle hit at someone, he may be claiming to be the winning horse, too.

Opolo eye, e no be open eye And if you're new in the game, make you go pay your tithe Shebi enu t'aja ma n fi nbo mo re sere, lo fi ma sha le ba Ah! Eshin to siwaju Se b'oun na lafi n joba… Ha! Ha! Ha!
Opolo eye, e no be open eye
And if you're new in the game, make you go pay your tithe
Shebi enu t'aja ma n fi nbo mo re sere, lo fi ma sha le ba
Ah! Eshin to siwaju
Se b'oun na lafi n joba…
Ha! Ha! Ha!
 
 
big eyes aren’t opened eyes And if you're new in the game, go and pay your tithe The same teeth that the dog plays with his puppies with is the same teeth it will use to bite them The winner horse… …Is the one that will be crowned king Ha! Ha! Ha!
big eyes aren’t opened eyes
And if you're new in the game, go and pay your tithe
The same teeth that the dog plays with his puppies with is the same teeth it will use to bite them
The winner horse…
…Is the one that will be crowned king
Ha! Ha! Ha!
 
 

BRIDGE
The hit at the person is more obvious, the artist is in tug of war with a hater. He is also claiming to be a frequent traveller, and in this regard, it’s nobody’s business how he enjoys his life.

Ote you dey dey there dey hate me When i'm making my money From moscow to Malaysia From malaysia to Miami Ko kan aye… E ma lo f'oshe yi mi o If i like i spend my money anyway i like it o oh No come near me, Mr. talku-talku And if you gossip me, you go chop knuckle…
Ote you dey dey there dey hate me
When i'm making my money
From moscow to Malaysia
From malaysia to Miami
Ko kan aye…
E ma lo f'oshe yi mi o
If i like i spend my money anyway i like it o oh
No come near me, Mr. talku-talku
And if you gossip me, you go chop knuckle…
 
 
Asshole, you are there hating me When I’m making my money From Moscow to Malaysia From Malaysia to Miami It’s nobody’s business Don’t embarrass me I will spend my money anyway I like Don’t come near me, Mr. Talkative And if you gossip me, you will be knocked!
Asshole, you are there hating me
When I’m making my money
From Moscow to Malaysia
From Malaysia to Miami
It’s nobody’s business
Don’t embarrass me
I will spend my money anyway I like
Don’t come near me, Mr. Talkative
And if you gossip me, you will be knocked!
 
 

CHORUS
while the translator cannot pin point what the artist means above, it is noteworthy that it is figurative, rather than literal. The chorus is a line picked from Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s Confusion album. The original artist used the term “double wahala (problem) for a dead body” as a form of parable.

Double wahala for deadi body Ahba!… and the owner of dem body Double wahala for deadi body (Abeg no stop am, obodo i dey enjoy gan) And the owner of dem body Ha! Ha! Ha!
Double wahala for deadi body
Ahba!… and the owner of dem body
Double wahala for deadi body
(Abeg no stop am, obodo i dey enjoy gan)
And the owner of dem body
Ha! Ha! Ha!
 
 
Double problem for a dead body And the owner of the body Double problem for a dead body Obodo, please don’t stop it, I am really enjoying it And the owner of the body Ha! Ha! Ha!
Double problem for a dead body
And the owner of the body
Double problem for a dead body
Obodo, please don’t stop it, I am really enjoying it
And the owner of the body
Ha! Ha! Ha!
