Verified is a brainchild of popular music lyrics site, Genius. The show features on YouTube. Artistes are invited to do a personal breakdown of their songs and give annotations to their lyrics.
Nigerian afropop superstar, Burna Boy was on the last episode of Verified, and he did justice to ‘Anybody’, the P2J produced song, off his groundbreaking album, “African Giant”.
In the clip as Burna Boy runs through each line giving insight into the underlying message to each line, he is quoted saying,
“I care about who you (people) are. If it’s positive energy, it’s positive energy. It doesn’t really matter what you’re saying. Coming to America, I realized, it’s just entertainment.”
He talks about the need for african youths to rise from their slumber and maximize their full potential. He also added the chorus to the song is a kind of smack over the head,
“If you don’t get smacked in the head by someone, you get smacked in the head by life”
