Why Do Nigerian Artistes Love Using The Phrase “My Mama Tell Me Say” In Their Songs?
Ordinarily, I’m not a fan of Nigerian music, because they don’t do the kinda music I like.
But I noticed something spectacular about Nigerian Artistes and their music lyrics. They always use the catch phrase “My Mama Tell Me Say”.
Example: “My Mama tell me say I go make am” and a lot more.
The funny thing is, almost all Nigerian Artistes have used this phrase, including those from wealthy family.😆
I was listening to one of Davido’s song when he was trying to identify with the street by telling narrating how he suffered, hustled and struggled in the United States of America. A son of one of the richest families in Nigeria o lol.
But I really want to know why they do this. I mean why everyone uses the my mama tell me say phrase.
