About “Uyo Meyo”

Created by Topceejoseph 1 year ago

"Uyo Meyo" is a song by Nigerian singer Teni. Produced by Michael Seyifunmi Bakare, it was officially released on 23 December 2018. The song won Best Recording of the Year at The Headies 2019. The chorus is an age long folklore that has been handed down from generations of Ondo Ekimogun people of Ondo State in South West Nigeria. In ancient history, the Yoruba people live a communal lifestyle. The good of others is a plus to one. Unlike nowadays where people live independent of others and the dearth of communal goodwill, the song reminds us all of the greatness in communal living.
