“Suddenly e scatter Area boy ti jagba
As Ole dey japa Olopa dey guide am”

The singer is talking about the snatching of ballot box in the 2023 election, he further posit that even the security operatives aided and were heavily involved in election violence as they guarded the thugs who committed the heinous crime.

“You wayo the number The portal, e shut down
You drop us the lamba Somebody e hack am”

The most surprising event about the election happened on February 27th when INEC revealed that their Irev portal is facing hitches, and the commission failed to upload the election results on time.

Unreasonable tribal prejudice galore

O wá so fun p’ó ti joba tán, kón ma gbádébò

As it could be seen, Falz is talking about the tribal war that occurred in Lagos prior to the governorship election. ‘Sanwo’ in the lyrics above is referring to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos while Gbadebo’ is talking about Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate under Labour Party whom many throw different tribal slurs and say he can’t be the governor of the state because his mum is from another tribe. Forgetting that his Dad is an indigene of the state with history dating back to over 200 years.
