Fame, Kilode, Farawe(Faraway), What’s Love, Girlie, and Ife Oni Baje are the tracks on the EP.
The first song on the EP Fame is a melodious story about her taste of fame and its pressures. Kilode, the next song that follows has the singer singing her heart out as she asks her man some pertinent questions about their relationship. The singer both sings and raps in English and Yoruba on the next track Farawe. In Girlie, the singer plays the role of a young woman very direct and ruthless in her dealings with men. ‘Money for hand, back for ground’ she loudly proclaims. She refuses to be swayed by unnecessary talks and empty promises from men. What’s love and Ife Oni Baje are more idealistic songs with their romantic depictions of love. They show the more romantic side of the singer. Listen to Raised to Power 2 here
