Tapping in at just under three minutes long, ‘Owo’ is an unapologetic release that explores the financial freedom that comes with having money. It’s an anthem for the hustler community! Emphasising the lack of problems when being able to live her best life, the rhythmic production and musical composition enables Abi to glaze her infectious lyrics and vocals atop with ease.
Dipping in and out of the English and Yoruba language, Abi commented, "Owo" means "money" in my Yoruba language, and "mo fe owo" means "I want money" so it really is a song about wanting money.” On a mission to prove herself as an artist to watch, ‘Owo’ is yet another stand-out single from the songstress.
Speaking on the release Abi explained, “When I wrote the track, I was inspired by an old school song called ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’, by The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie and Bad Boy Records. However, with my song ‘Owo’ I was more optimistic about having more money and no problems! This is what people in the world can relate with. When I was writing the lyrics I laid a foundation of love, power and ambition to add to the main topic of money. The song has a fun, laid back, cool vibe to it. It depicts the lifestyle of a real-life hustler in the midst of the challenges and financial struggles in life.”
