Ogaranya song Meaning by Adekunle Gold


What does Adekunle Gold’s Ogaranya mean?


Ogaranya Meaning

Ogaranya is a Yourba word which refers to someone who knows they are rich and dope, and flaunt their success and wealth unapologetically because they have come to a realization that their success and wealth is not funded by anybody but themselves.

Ogaranya Lyrics meaning points to majorly one thing- Adekunle Gold is not about the mid life anymore. The way he flaunts his progress and achievements with Ogaranya lyrics points to how he is proud of how far he has come and the things he has put in to actually make it this far and still be at the top.

I mean, Ogaranya is a culmination of the hurdles and dues that Adekunle Gold has encountered and he is trying to say with Ogaranya meaning that it all paid off. He is no longer someone you would see riding commercial or being in any space that isn’t VIP because he is no longer about that “normal life”

To an extent, Ogaranya meaning shows that Adekunle Gold is more than VIP. I mean, think about it. The normal rating for any service or person is 5 stars, but that does not mean you actually get 5 stars all the time.

However, Adekunle Gold is saying with Ogaranya lyrics that he gets all the stars because that’s who he is right now, and he has worked hard enough for it.

The Nigerian Dream is all about making enough money that not only do you not have to worry about having money.

You get to eat, dine and live wherever you want because you can AFFORD that lifestyle. Adekunle Gold does not use Ogaranya to intimidate or unnecessarily flaunt his lifestyle and success. He is saying that he has a right to that lifestyle because he has earned it.

This is what Ogaranya meaning implies.

Meanwhile, Adekunle Gold credits God for his accomplishments and emphasizes that his pride is based on what God has done for him. This is why he says:

Butterflies in my tummy when the money enter
Me I like it
Getting rich and its all in the plan
Mama I made it to forbes
I buy German for my baby
Mo toju mommy mo tu ra le
Soft living living
Living like a superstar
All I do is winning
Tio no more loss
Tin ba jaiye Ejo mi ko
Ayefele what’s the rush
Kanayo kanayo
Wetin dey sup
Me nuh see so evil and I fear no one
I do the sign of the cross
Fo ju dimi don’t be dumb
Things are not the same on God
