Afrorolls reminds us of the Great Fela Anikulapo Kuti in this highly spiritual new single titled Ire. This is Afrobeat in the purest form. Ire means blessings, it is a powerful prayer song asking chi for blessings, according to Afrorolls we all need grace and blessings from Oluwa to make day to day progress.
Ire is Dedicated to all the young people trying hard to find their way through the hardship of this country. People find themselves in extreme conditions having crossed the boarders into Foreign lands for greener pastures. When I wake up in the morning these are all my prayer points, I just decided to put them all in a song, I pray for Ire (Blessings), for Ife (love), for success, good kids, nice houses, divine favor, and good vibes.
“Ki ire ko ya lo odo mi, ki Iyanu ya lo odo mi
Make I get some girls for my hood, wey dey feel all my gbedu ,
Make Oyinbo dey fell all my tunes”
“This is a prayer for blessings, divine favor, and acceptance,” Afrorolls says.
The song produced by Killertunes also has a political side to it, it features samples from what sounds like the voice of Olusegun Obasanjo, a war veteran and former two-time president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The sample sees him endorsing Dele Momodu’s presidential candidacy saying he is the most qualified young person in Nigeria. This vocal sample on this song is mind-blowing and can have so many meanings. It will be interesting to ask Afrorolls or Killertunes why the choice of that sample. Killertunes is also responsible for hits like Manya by Wizkid and Yeba by Kiss daniel.
