In a recent interview with HipTV, actress and OAP, Omotunde Adebowale a.k.a Lolo 1, said  that 97% of Nigerian music have no meaning and are not children friendly. Lolo who asked for the meaning of ‘Bangdadadang, Wo, Skrrrrr papapa’, said;

“I’m not sure if they’re passing any message because if you are looking at the content of music, what will you say you’re buying? It’s not that everybody talks crap but 97% of it has no meaning. ‘Bangdadadang’, what does that mean? ‘Skibidipapap’, doesn’t have any meaning, ‘Wo!’, it’s just play, we are just having fun. It’s not like the music of the yesteryears, the Obey, Barrister, Sunny Ade. They had depth, they had what they wanted to pass, even though we have people here in this current generation that are doing conscious music, Fela was a great advocate, he did a lot of social impact in music. but in this generation, I’m not sure.”.
