Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, thrilled the audience with a rendition of ‘Buga‘, Kizz Daniel’s hit track at a global conference organized by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

Osinbajo graced the conference on Tuesday at the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu in Lagos State. The meeting, which started on Monday, is scheduled to end on Wednesday.

In a Twitter post, Laolu Akande, the vice president’s media aide, said Osinbajo represented President Muhammadu Buhari as a special guest of honour to receive Zurab Pololikashvili, UNWTO’s Secretary-General, to the event. Akande said the conference focuses on leveraging the tourism and creative industries for economic growth.

In a now-viral video from the event, Osinbajo sang the hit track, while remarking about the function of music as a “global language,” as the audience cheerfully join him in a sing-along.

He said, “Music, for example, as we all know, is a global language. Even though people don’t know the meaning of the words of a song, they enjoy the rhythm, and some find out the meaning of lyrics by 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. How many people know this song?”

Osinbajo then started a rendition of ‘Buga’, saying, “Koni baje o let me see you go low low low let me see you go low low low Buga wọn, Lemme see Buga wọn” which drew applause and laughter from the audience. You know that your ‘Buga’ has to be a real ‘Buga’,” he said amidst cheers.

According to him, with Nigerian music rendered in different languages worldwide, people are now dancing to Nigerian songs like ‘Buga’.

He further commends the singer, Kizz Daniel, adding that ‘Buga won’ is a Yoruba expression that encourages one to flaunt their success.

“People all over the world are dancing to Kizz Daniel.

“The phrase ‘buga won’ is a Yoruba expression. It means ‘flaunt your hard-won success, take the fruit of your work. Take the opportunity, show off your successes.’ Don’t sit down there thinking ‘my success is too small.’ Feel it, show it off.

“Many people all over the world are squaring up their shoulders and saying, ‘It doesn’t matter how hard it seems or looks, I must show off my own success, no matter how little it may seem to others. It may seem to you that it’s small but I’m just going to buga won anyway,’” Osinbajo said.

Since its release on May 4, 2022, ‘Buga’ has enjoyed massive reception among music lovers and prominent figures across the globe.
