Eclipse: They call me, Eclipse! Naksiobi

Eclipse: Let’s talk about it, listen

Chorus (Demmie Vee)
Baby mi ma shey sha farawe

You don’t have to do these crazy things to survive like Caro
Ori o tor tor lamu, aiye yi ka ko ma do gba o
Why you dey follow-follow, follow-follow
Take the lead, make them follow, follow, follow, follow you

Verse 1 (Eclipse)
Peer pressure is the P, if you’re balling you be G
They say na monkey see, monkey do, na so di thing dey be
Cuz Bola heard Titi got an iPhone for free
Now Bola wants to nack Alhaji sule for a fee
And yahoo boys, they putting pressure on a man
You go dey feel like loser, if never get your ground
Like disgrace to your family and shame to your clan
If you never hammer by the age of 21
Now Chichi don dey worry John, him sef won to carry gun
Because she want to fix hair, because she want to feel among
She say the hair na 80k plus transport 98
But John still be corper and him allowee na 19.8
Nigerian girl with Brazilian hair
That don’t make you international ore mi you hear
Shaging everywhere cuz bobo’s in the clear
Is only gonna make your whole virtue disappear
That’s real

Chorus (Demmie Vee)
Baby mi ma shey sha farawe
Afarawe ko da o
You don’t have to do these crazy things to survive like Caro
Ori o tor tor lamu, aiye yi ka ko ma do gba o
Why you dey follow-follow, follow-follow
Take the lead, make them follow, follow, follow, follow you

Verse 2 (Poe)
Look
I don’t lie about my background or try to hide the accent
Try to fill the space with somebody else’s stinking absence
My presence is a present
Why I call myself the future? Is it cos I relegate your favourite rapper to the past tense
I’m past them
Nothing much is stopping me
Call themselves stars but I swear they all dots to me
Their love for me is fake, fuck em all, when I pass them off
A package with no content doesn’t mean whole lot
Uh, yeah
Now make them follow, follow me
I’m just trying to hold it down, like if say na only me
I know I make some of you proud, I see how you showing me
They ask me if I am the dopest, I tell them “I am, indeed”
Uh huh
The obstacles, I see them in my view
Like a henny bottle cap, they just something to remove
Yeah: I brag , yeah I boast, but I always show and prove
Cos, yeah: it’s what I do

Chorus (Demmie Vee)
Baby mi ma shey sha farawe
Afarawe ko da o
You don’t have to do these crazy things to survive like Caro
Ori o tor tor lamu, aiye yi ka ko ma do gba o
Why you dey follow-follow, follow-follow
Take the lead, make them follow, follow, follow, follow you

Verse 3 (Eclipse):
To ma young rappers out there on a low
See I know what’s its like be the one wey never blow
Don’t compare yourself to no one, you get ur talent just hold am
Be humble all the time ,but no hesitate to show am
Ogbeni just perch low, you no need to sell soul
And when the time comes, just remember I said so
Cuz when u burning hot ,and your the kid with d best flow
You watch your VSOP slowly turn into XO
Things change, people around you change
You go from jumping tricycle to d back of a range
From those magazine lines to the front of the page
And from lacking gate fees to performing on stages
I swear! It all comes at its own time
It might take forever, it might come in no time
It all comes in good time
Just work and pray, na oluwa know your own time

Chorus (Demmie Vee)
Baby mi ma shey sha farawe
Afarawe ko da o
You don’t have to do these crazy things to survive like Caro
Ori o tor tor lamu, aiye yi ka ko ma do gba o
Why you dey follow-follow, follow-follow
Take the lead, make them follow, follow, follow, follow you

Outro (Eclipse)
I guess the point right here is, we all got different parts in life, different destinies, and: it’s only smart you figure out which one is yours and just work with it. Lot of us get trapped trying to lead another person’s life, I guess that’s just the problem.
Like my people say they say: kwa me shey a farigum; ishigi di me kwom otu”. You gotta ask yourself. Bless. You gotta keep it real, gotta keep it going, huh, gotta keep it real.
Eclipse! City of dreams.
