Music Video Monday #17: Oyedieyie By Dunsin

This goofy hiplife video tells the stories of some Oyeadieyie, who are the boys that carry sewing machines on their head and mend peoples clothes.

The chorus goes like this if you could not hear it:

“Oyedieyie, with his sewing machine.

When he went around to sew.

When he shouted Oyedieyie, people start to laugh at him.”

The joke is that people may make fun of Oyedieyie, and laugh, but what they have to realize is that they fix all problems.  They are more important to society than they are given credit for.
