SMH (SHAKING MY HEAD) – A DARING COMMENTARY BY DABOOMSHA

SMH daboomsha

Christian hip hop exists in Nigeria and its come a long way although it’s still in its first generation. Daboomsha probably did SMH with a deliberate intention of starting a conversation within the Christian hip hop community.

SMH is unapologetically confrontational, as DaBoomsha bares his mind on a number of issues that were on his mind.

With a gripping intro by deceased Rap legend, Tupac Amaru Shakur as well as vocals from other CHH artists, SMH is another lyrical masterpiece.

Daboomsha is a respected hip-hop luminary, a radio presenter, TV show host, performing artist and president of boomsha kreatives.

SMH Lyrics

Yeah
This is how I feel
right or wrong
Just what I was feeling at d time
You know I had to say something
So let’s get it

I’ve been contemplating on certain topics of conversation
Sourcing information and getting some confirmation
I’m done with the consultations
It’s time for the Consummation
Gotta address these issues
and get in the confrontation
Christian HipHop, no doubt
I represent

Holy Spirit living inside
as the evidence
HipHop Missionary
All 5 elements
Ready for the war but the church ain’t ready yet

Same old faces on the posters of church events
Same old gospel artistes
Man, ain’t nothing changed

I made a vow never to attend the experience
Until I see a Christian rapper
Up in that stadium

That’s why the youths would rather be at the discotheques
Pastors are outta touch
so there’s a disconnect

This culture we stand for
This ministry we rap for
is not accepted or celebrated
on their platforms
Damn

I hear some rappers bragging
About the money they cashing
There must be something fundamentally wrong with the Blackman
Ur not as rich as Dangote
What you getting hyped about
You’re not driving a Lamborghini
Ogbeni, just shut your mouth
The sultan of Brunei
has 22 in his parking lot
You neva even buy one
But you’re the one to talk a lot

Some Christian personalities
In the media
so quick at dissing us
But won’t be assisting us

Famzing with the industry
But criticize the ministry
Don’t smile in my face
and lie to me you feeling me
Cos when you hit the station
You still won’t play me though
Stick to the daddy yo songs
On your radio

How about the Christian bloggers
Who claim that they love us
But when the songs drop
They pretend and ignore us
You keep reaching out
they never reply your email
But CHH is all of us
If we fail, then you fail

It’s time to address the house
Get it off my chest and mouth
Quiet for a long time
Now it’s time to let it out
This is for my brothers
and sisters in the community
CHH commune
But what’s a commune without the unity?

We supposed to be, fam
Same team, same signature
Same body, arm, leg, head
Same ligature
What’s with d competition
Jealousy and self-promotion
Ego with d braggadocio
Ooh… that’s a heady potion.

Arguments about
Whose raps is the most anointed?
fighting for a church endorsement
It’s time we reject the poison

God wants an army
Why you raising an idol
I started boomsha Kreative
Made clients outta my rivals

What’s your plan for the movement
Can’t u see that we losing?
Gotta make some improvements
And get d ministry moving!

A lotta things I used to care about no longer move me though
There’s more to the music than lacing tracks in d studio
All the rappers who came before me
never took a bullet for me
Had to learn from my mistakes
Appreciate the wounds that scarred me
roll with a righteous army
These are my tribal markings
I die for the cause
I’m Proud to be a kamikaze
I gladly support my team
In a major way
Show em how to be a soldier
Far from civilian ways
The Trinity is teamwork
Peep the divine logo
If we fly solo, we die solo
