Vice-President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday thrilled the audience at the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) global conference, when he sang Kizz Daniel’s hit song, “Buga”.
The conference was held in Iganmu, Lagos State.
Osinbajo spoke on the theme ‘Linking Tourism, Culture and Creative Industries: Pathways to Recovery and Improving Development.’
The Vice-President told the participants, drawn from different parts of the World, that music is a global language that people can enjoy without understanding the lyrics.
He said; “Music, as we all know, is a global language. Even those who don’t know the meaning of the words of a song enjoy the rhythm. And some find out the meaning of the lyrics, discovering the cultures and ideas that inspire them.’’
“But let me just test that theory of mine, that is, that you don’t need to understand the words of any song to enjoy it and to be able to sing it and that music is indeed a very global language.”
To buttress his point, Osinbajo sang Kizz Daniel’s hit song ‘Buga’; an act which caused cheers and applause from the participants.
The Vice- President asked the audience to join him in his rendition as he demonstrated the viral dance move associated with the song by raising his shoulders.
After his dance moves, he said, “Today, Nigerian music rendered in different languages is played all over the world. So people all over the world are dancing to that song by Kizz Daniel, called ‘Buga’.’’
