When it comes to Afrobeats, Davido is a name that resonates with vibrant energy and catchy tunes. His recent feature in the “Twe Twe” remix by Kizz Daniel has been a topic of much excitement. But what do these lyrics really mean?

Let’s break it down in simple terms, so everyone can get the gist.

The Essence of “Twe Twe”

First off, “Twe Twe” is all about a popular dance move called twerking. It’s a fun, energetic dance where you shake your backside. The song especially shouts out to those who are really good at it, usually women with bigger backsides.

“Isakaba (Baddest)”

“Isakaba” is a term with deep cultural roots, originally from a Nigerian movie about the Bakassi Boys, a vigilante group. In Nigerian street slang, it’s an exclamation for when a man sees a woman with a notably large backside. Davido uses “Isakaba” to fit the song’s theme about twerking and celebrating the female form.

“Baddest” – This is just Davido calling himself by his popular nickname. He’s known for his confidence and style, and this is just his way of stamping his signature on the song.

“Give me your bakasi oh”

“Bakasi” here is a play on words. While it refers to the backside in street slang, it also cleverly alludes to the Bakassi Boys. Davido uses this term to express his admiration for a woman’s twerking skills.

“Your body looking like tsunami”

Davido compares the woman’s body to a tsunami, emphasizing the power and impact of her dance moves.

“Explosive, Hiroshima, Nagasaki”

These lines use the imagery of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to describe the woman’s body as explosive and impactful. It’s a metaphor for the strong impression her dancing leaves.

“Plenty omoge don make me miscalculate”

“Omoge,” meaning young woman, suggests that the presence of many attractive women has led Davido to lose his usual composure.

“Don make me over dey pay”

This line indicates that being around these women has caused him to spend more than planned, a common theme in songs about being captivated by someone’s allure.

“Don make me dey misbehave”

Here, Davido admits that the allure of these women influences him to act out of character.

“With the way them twe twe twe twe”

This line is a continuation from “Don make me dey misbehave,” referring to the way the women twerk (“twe twe twe twe”) with their big backside (Bakassi).

“Fit to make a man go keke na pe pe pe”

Despite his wealth and fame, Davido suggests that the allure of the woman’s twerking could make him ride a “Keke Napep,” a common tricycle used for transportation in Nigeria. This line highlights the powerful effect of the woman’s allure.

“Egbami oh Jesu”

A cry for help, humorously suggesting he’s overwhelmed by the women’s beauty and dancing.

“They be feeling the boy like oleku”

Referring to his popularity, akin to the hit song “Oleku.”

“Osondi Owendi oh di oh di oh di oh”

A nod to the Igbo highlife song “Osondi Owendi” by Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, which means “one man’s meat is another man’s poison.” In the streets, “Osondi Owendi” is also known as a term for backside, tying back to the theme of the song.
