Video: F.Shaw – Aiye Ma Da Fun Mi

Here is the visual for Aiye Ma Da Fun Mi (Life Will Be Good For Me) by F. Shaw.

It was first released sometime in 2009, it’s a little weird for the video to be out now but that’s the life of an indie artiste.

Out in the city of London, F.Shaw fell in love with “life” and “living”. The simple things you know; trees, people, conversations at barbershops and generally just happy people on the streets.

He was inspired to put together a small video for this song titled ‘Aiye Ma Da Fun Mi’ which means “Life will be good for me” and the statement is nostalgic because his grandmother used to say it/still says it as a form of prayer “Eeni si ile wo…aiye aada fun yin” meaning “The good lord will order your steps…Life will be good for you”.

The uber-talented F.Shaw presents all the problems/challenges known in Nigeria to his listeners. Crabs in a bucket, everyone struggling hard to get by on a daily basis and in this track there is a message of hope, which we must hold on to because when we lose hope, we truly lose everything”.

 Enjoy it!
