Junior and Pretty’s video for their song, Bolanle is one of those videos that has the ’90s written all over it. The outfits, the muddied beats in the background, the off-key background vocals. All these things add to the comedy that is this video.
If you have never seen the video, do yourself a favor and watch it here.
As you watch the video, you might pick up new words (and back-breaking dance moves) that you can add to your vocabulary, e.g. Suprization – 4:47
Dat one na jara.
Apart from extolling the virtues of Ketu Alapere, this song also teaches one powerful lesson:
How (not) to get pepper water dumped on you in the name of love.
Okay, seriously, the song teaches you the power of the written word. Specifically, the power of a well-written love letter. You don’t believe me? I don’t blame you.
*grabs bucket of pepper water and prepares to pour it on the unsuspecting reader*
You still don’t believe me? Looks like I will have to prove my case. *grumbles*
Now, here’s what you need to do:
- Go to the video (Yes the same one I shared above)
- Fastforward to 5:20
- Pay close attention (In fact, get a pen and paper and take notes sef)
By the time the video ends, you will understand why the love letter Junior wrote was such a powerful one. See the list of people who “dey in love with Junior” after reading the letter:
- Chima (who was that?)
- The housegirl
- The sister
- The cousin
- Bolanle’s mother (oh yes!)
…. All from ONE single letter. See talent!
Finally, observe the effect: all these women begin take flower pursue Junior.
Need any more proof? I didn’t think so.
I rest my case.
