SWEET LIKE FINE WINE: Olomi Gbo Temi – Ebenezer Obey

It’s Flashback Friyaaayyyyy!

Here’s one of my all time favorite naija classics. for those who do not understand Yoruba, this song is a sweet proposal song.
In this song – Olomi Gbo Temi, Ebenezer Obey is basically asking a lady to listen to him (gbo temi) and become his wife. So he goes on to paint the benefits a loving married couple enjoy by being together. All in a bid to convince the babe to gree for him and marry him. Awwwwwww.
Let me just drop this disclaimer here; My understanding of Yoruba isn’t that ‘konk’, so if you’re a Yoruba person reading this and have a deeper translation of the song, please share with us in the comments section.
