IT. was a hit in the eighties! There is plenty of idiomatic , folklore, and african story telling in the song. He pays tribute briefly to the "Alaafin of Oyo" the oba of the land of Oyo."

Surprisingly enough, at the party was a beautiful woman dancing with a married man at the party - the party was groovy and hot and not knowing the wife of the man was watching; and from nowhere she danced with her samba (ikebe) to chase the other woman away from her husband. I don't blame her joo!!!"
