A Brief Review of Davido’s “Flora My Flawa”
2017 was a very good year for Davido. He dropped amazing hits from ‘IF‘ to ‘Fall‘ to ‘Fia‘. This year, he thrilled his fans with a new single ‘Flora my flawa’- a love song but we’re still wondering if it’s a hit or a miss.
Good instrumentals? Check.
Romantic in the Nigerian sense? Check.
Amazing lyrics? Err…not so much. Sure, there were a few nice puns. But the lyrics remain the same cliche words that Nigerian artistes have been churning out since the early 2000s.
It seems like Davido is always at a loss for words when it comes to lyrics. ‘Flora my flawa’ was basically him repeating the chorus over and over again till the beat was exhausted.
Technically, the only part of the song with lyrics that could be passed off as good was the first verse. It was riddled with puns and what you could loosely call ‘punchlines’.
The rest of the song was meh. But he covered it up with the catchy instrumentals.
The song has thrilled some of his fans but the majority of people think it was a miss from the FIA crooner.
However, the jury is giving him a second chance to create something amazing to make up for this horror he churned out.
