Lil Kesh and Naira Marley collaborated for the first time on “Issa Goal”, a hugely successful song that went on to become the unofficial anthem for Nigeria’s run at last year’s football world cup. Hoping to recapture a similar level of success, the two have linked up for “O Por”, using the popular street slang to emphasise the street-hop cliches present on the song.
The fast paced beat produced by Young Jon compliments the vibrant performance from both artists. On the first verse, Lil Kesh sings vindictive lyrics at an ex-lover who jilted him in the past, while he casts himself as a hopeless romantic on the third verse dedicated to a new partner.
Naira Marley delivers the second verse, and although there are few quotables in there, it is irreverently crude—at one point he sings, “o le lo t’oti m’oko le (you can’t go ‘cos you’ve made me aroused)“. Regardless, we can expect “O Por” to be on party playlists over the next few months, given that its primary intention is to get people dancing.
