OBRA (LIFE): A Review Of Samini’s Music Video.



Here we have 5 minutes of Ghanaian flavored reggae music that has many dynamic types of shading, and is sprinkled with sustained lines, weaving counter lines, and thick, resonant chords. The contrasts in mood are very well handled. It is a rousing number that exudes rhythmic intensity, and Ghanaian bravado. This exciting musical composition brings out a sense of adventure, and reggae lovers will enjoy the brisk tempo and fiery Ghanaian rhythms.

"Obra" - Life; is one of the top charting singles from Samini's Untamed album. It’s a very touchy record that does have a much deeper meaning or context. It is mainly championing the success of Samini, who has gone through so much and later losing wealth to a fraudster (Kwadzo Nkansah Liwin - Ghanaian comic actor).

"Obra yɛ ɔko oo e, I can’t believe sɛ aka me nko oo e, Aba no saa ara, Ama ma m'ayɛ wild! Me pɛ sɛ me kɔ kurom nso, Ɛnhyɛ me ho ooh e yeah! (Chorus). Where ma nigga dey bra bɛfa me, Na adwen-adwen bebirebe yi No be good for ma head o, Borga paa ara na ɛnɛ deɛ bɛhwɛ me, Me nya biribi a anoɔdene, Just to cool down my head o, Suro nnipa na gyae saman! Nnipa tirim yɛ sum toom Me ka m'gya nann, W'aka apepa n'ano wesee ahyɛda abisa sɛ hwan, Asɛ w'anka bi nso ɔno na ɔkaa deɛ edikan"

(Dominated by the Ghanaian Twi language and spiced up with Pidgin English, the verse's words are basically laid out. Life is war, if not lived well, you will be amazed to be left alone in the dilemma. Fear human and allow the spirit to rest). I tried decoding the lyrics.

The song sonically is amazing—it works perfectly with the voice of Legendary Samini. The beat doesn’t make the song, it doesn’t overpower his voice, it accentuates and enhances seamlessly while also being present and in your face. Samini pulled together some major actors (including known Kwadzo Nkansah Lil Win and Vivian Jill) into one epic video, directed by Yaw Skyface.

The video video to the song has older origins. The story line is one of the usual movie script's acted by persons who portray a character in a performance; actors. thus, someone (Samini)travels overseas to turn the hardships in his life into some good fortunes, sends the earnings to a friend (Lil Win) to make some properties for him, only to return to his homeland just to find out that his toil has been in vein.

Well, this not a bad video story line because, the lyrics of the song clearly tells how the visual components will end up. This video is actually one of a kind which vividly explain the audio side, basically, the lyrics. Thus, a patron can watch this master piece without the audio, or the sound to the video being muted, and yet getting the whole story line as if he or she (patron) was privy to the audio.

The five minute and fifteen seconds visual components has two bridges that is a contrasting section that prepares for the return of the original material section. or may be used more loosely in verse-chorus form. Its also allow the patrons or music fanatics to hear the words from the characters in video. Which sometimes I feel shouldn't be the case, because the audio has played that role.

You can't doubt Yaw Skyface's work. The directing was practically on point, I think the movie characters(Lil Win and Vivian Jill) in the video also contributed to a the smooth directing from the Yaw Skyface. Samini and the few passer by also performed to meet their task. The location was also point, with the weather condition (natural or artificial) adding more aesthetics to the body of work.

Waking up right from a rented compound house, Samini was looking so frustrated, holding and sipping a bottle of an alcoholic beverage with the objective of trying to calm his feeling or expressing of distress and annoyance resulting from an inability to change or achieve his set goals of making some properties in Ghana while living abroad, because Akwasi(Lil Win) who is responsible for making his dreams a reality used the monies to satisfy his personal needs.

He phoned his friend to accompany him to Akwasi's residence to confront him (Akwasi) and to request for the expenditure on how the monies was used. On reaching his residence, Akwasi flee the house as he sense an unquenching trouble from a distance. Samini also initiated a manhunt because there are questions that need answers. Akwasi was out of energy to continue the run. He was resting, and contemplating on where to escape to, all of a sudden he was caught by Samini, only to confess that, he misused the and didn't make any properties.

Overall, this is a strong production, and both characters and director deserve special praise. This dramatic piece creates an intense, rhythmic, driving, angular sound that is quite contemporary;. The rich and resonant brass and the crisp and exact percussion dominate the scene throughout, as the main theme is somewhat developed. This composition would make a good concert opener.

This music video is a message. It’s telling all people not to entrust their wealth in the hands of friends or family members, because you can be disappointed and frustrated.
