The iconic Afro Irish duo turned trio consisting of Baba Raji, Ayo Tori and Junzy have come a long way. They are slowly but surely etching themselves into the fabric of the Afro-fusion genre. They write, vocalize and produce all their music with ease. They have the knack of effortlessly blending their sound with different genres and still remaining authentic and original. They’ve seen success in the Irish market from the hits on their debut EP (2019) from songs like Barbie, BYB (Break your back) and Good Afternoon. Now they are on their way to the top of the Afro-fusion scene and are ready to take African music to the world.
African girl is an Afro Pop anthem produced by RAJI Music.
The song was made for the purpose of appreciating and showing love for African women all around the world.
In the hook, (Praise Onakoya) B RAJI makes it clear that the girl he’s speaking of is African Irish, specially from Waterford, a South-East county in Ireland.
RAJI Music are also African Irish (Nigerian-Irish to be exact) so this song depicts the type of women we encounter living here.
In his verse, Ayo Tori (Ayo Toritsemotse) describes her physical shape and her rich dark skin “like chocolate”. He also uses the word “cailín”, which is the Irish word for girl, as a nickname to describe her. As a Nigerian he then makes it clear where the girls he likes are from; appreciating the beauty from the Igbo, Yoruba and Itsekiri tribes.
Junzy (Ebruba Mideno) on the bridge also describes a physical beauty, painting us a picture of a beautiful African girl with distinct African features “brown skin, lips so juicy”.
The adoration of these features is a reminder to African girls around the world that they are beautiful the way they are. We love their natural features and we wouldn’t trade them for the world.
