OlaZee - MONEY & EFIZZY [prod. by Chimbaleen] + EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY [prod. by Frankie Free] Artwork

OlaZee [real name – Olanrewaju Larry Lawal, pronounced as Ola-Zee] is a song-writer and a student at one of the universities in Canada, who originally hails from Ogun State, but grew up and lived in the Oil City, Warri, Delta state since the tender age of 4; he had his primary and high school education at Warri, after which he went to Canada for further education. Sparking up interest for musical expression started from his family home where he grew up with his parents who are big fans of good, entertaining music; he got accustomed to the Nigerian and African music scene in general, listening to great acts like Fela, Pasuma, Obesere, Wasiu Ayinde, Lagbaja, Vybz Kartel, D’banj, Movado, Sinzu and all other great likes, and soon fell in love with music ever since. While growing up, OlaZee was one of those kids who settle down to listen, write and practice the lyrics of some of his favourite American Hip-Hop acts during his leisure time.

At a tender age of 16, OlaZee already started making music, doing basic Rap freestyles on instrumentals and recording himself on a laptop; he learnt the basics and structures of composing and delivering on a track with energy all by himself and used to be known as Larry Boy from way back. Fast forward a few years later, he decided to go into a professional studio, to experiment his talent; he learnt a lot working with studio producers and music experts at such a young age and a few months later, after recording and gathering a compilation of demos, he later on realized his uniqueness and originality in his type of music. Ever since then, OlaZee described his kind of music as Afro-Hop, a mixture of Afro-Dancehall and Hip-Hop, with a blend of English, Pidgin English and Yoruba lyrics.

Currently working with Magic City Records producer, Frankie Free, he decides to let out this offering titled “Everyday Is A Holiday”, alongside the Chimbaleen-produced “Money & Efizzy”. On “Money & Efizzy”, OlaZee displays his dexterity on the Afro-Hop infusion with catchy lyrics and verses which sprout creativity as he delivers the right sound for such an excellent vibe whilst on “Everyday Is A Holiday”, he teams up with the South-South heavyweight producer, Frankie Free, to deliver a party tune with energetic flows.

Introduction:

10 things I love about Naija.. In this series of posts, “Naija” is defined as the People of Nigeria, and also the country Nigeria. I was told a couple of days ago that we as Nigerians always seem to focus on our problems and issues with our homeland and not enough on the good aspects of being a Naija person. There are so many problems in Nigeria that we can probably talk about them from now till the end of time, but there are also the good things that I can never ever give up for anything else in the world. The things that made me who I am today. The things that anytime I think about, I just smile and think “wow… those were some funny times”, or just hearing a story about someone and just thinking to yourself “That babe must be a naija babe”…lol. Anyways, without talking too much and in no particular order, I’ll start the “10 things I love about Naija” Series with the one thing most/all Nigerians are familiar with – Efizzy.

Efizzy:

Definition of Efizzy: Is there really a definition of efizzy? I don’t know if anyone can actually define it accurately but if I had to give it a shot, I’d say it’s the act of showing off – both in a loud and subtle way.

Where would Nigeria be without efizzy? I don’t think I want to know. It seems like almost everything in naija is about efizzy, and who can do it the most. Someone in Lagos will buy a brand new BMW and specifically request an in-built navigation system even though there is no where to navigate in Lagos. Why? The efizzy that will bring is too much man… Imagine picking up a babe that just finished riding okada and she hears that sweet navigation lady’s voice… Omo… see efizzy levels man. Clap-on lights in your house is efizzy, popping champagne in the club and chilling with finest babes is efizzy. Showing up to a party late and having everyone turn to look at you and your friends cos you girls are soooo on fire – efizzy.

Efizzy is not always about loud, and  obvious showing off… there’s the silent efizzy i.e. quiet fine babe efizzy that some girls like to do, or going to Mr. Biggs and casually asking to use the “bathroom” instead of using the “toilet”, asking for “tylenol” instead of “panadol.” Skipping the line at the club, Valet parking when there’s regular parking, buying everyone drinks or dinner at an expensive restaurant, driving a nice lexus with tinted windows, speaking phone` in the village…. All nah efizzy. You name it, and naija people with do it in the name of efizzy. If efizzy was a deadly disease, all Nigerians above the age of 13 will be dead.

Let’s face it. It’s something we all love to do, or love to hate. We all either like being part of the efizzy, watching the efizzy, or beefing people that are doing the efizzy. Even an Okada man can pull efizzy on his levels if he wants to. So there… Efizzy is one of the things that I just absolutely love about Naija, and would not trade out. I can’t even imagine my life without it.

With that being said, I’m off to go pop moet at the club… not because I love moet like that, but I like the efizzy that comes with it :)

money-in-hand-copyThere is a very interesting & disturbing phenomenon going on in yankee these days that has seemed to work its way from Nigeria. The idea that it’s common practice for a guy that wants to date a girl to take her and her friends out on the first date, or maybe not even the first date, but when they all go out to clubs, he’ll pay their way at the door – the girl he’s toasting and all 4 of her friends that is. I mean, why? The guy is only interested in one girl, so wetin concern am with the other babes. It’s not a problem if he offers, which sometimes happens, but when it becomes a case where the girl and her friends get to the club, or finish eating at a restaurant and everyone starts acting like they are on their cell phone, or looking up to the ceiling and pretending like they don’t see the bill or don’t see the door person collecting money, then we have a problem. This needs to stop asap. Sometimes it’s more annoying, because you know some of these girls have money, some come from well to do homes – their parents are high-rollers in naija and yours are civil servants-, but for some strange reason they just like the awoof, and wont think twice about chopping free food.

In some cases, the guy is not even interested in any of the girls. They are all just friends. Maybe they went to school with each other, or go to the same church, or something, but for some reason these babes always feel like it’s their right to be paid for. Let’s see… your dad is balling back home, and my dad isn’t. I work 9-5 (which is nothing so great to brag about), and drive a regular car, and you’re still getting money from parents, and riding in a 2009 whip. How is it fair for me to pay for you and your 6 friends to get into the club at $20 a head. What effizy am I trying to prove? Maybe if I was into 19 business and I just hammered then it wouldn’t be a big deal to pull effizy like that, but unfortunately (or fortunately) I’m not. To be fair this doesn’t apply to a lot of african babes, but a significant number do fall into this category.

Do I think I should pay for a girl I ask out on a date? Yes. Will I treat my friends to dinner or drinks or whatever every once in a while? Yes, but please if I say “Let’s all go to velvet room 2nite,” that doesn’t mean I’m paying for you and your 4 homegirls to enter velvet room, or if I say “let’s all go to dinner”, it doesn’t mean when the check comes you should pretend like it’s not there or start scratching your head and turning in a different direction. Stop this madness! This is yankee – Every man/woman for his/herself unless stated otherwise.

Am I wrong for feeling this way? Yes?, No? Maybe?…. I want to hear what you think.
