The “shey you dey whine me song” deserves a video from me — TG Omori declares

TG Omori has made known his intention to shoot a video for the viral song of the moment.

A certain song whose owner is yet to be publicly identified has been circulating on the Nigerian media space for almost a week now. The song, often referred to with a line of its lyrics, “shey you dey whine me”, appears to be loved by the people basically because of the funny impression it creates with its lyrics and delivery.

While many music lovers struggled to identify the singer as well as the language of the song, a certain Endurance, responding to Profiling this evening, claimed the language spoken on the song is Ogoni, one of the languages in Rivers State, Nigeria. She went on to translate a certain line of the song. She inferred that the line “meera ko mgaa leera Bari” with its response “shey you dey whine me” means “who said I should not praise God?” (Shey you dey whine me ni?)

The translation given to the song is the icing on the cake to finally establish the previous suggestions that the song is a Gospel song as the singer was heard, on a longer version of the snippet shared, mentioning “omnipotent God”.

As people continue to circulate the snippet of the song bearing a man singing in the midst of a group of female dancers holding some handkerchiefs, TG Omori has made known his desperation to find the singer and shoot a proper music video for the Gospel song.
