Countless scientific and psychological studies and research have shown that music can lift our moods, combat depression, improve blood flow in ways similar to statins (a class of drugs that reduce illness and mortality in those who are at high risk of cardiovascular disease), lower levels of stress-related hormones such as cortisol, and ease pain. In some cases, music can even improve the outcomes for patients after surgery.
Music is a universal language of emotion in that it can represent different feelings and with no boundaries or limitations. No wonder People tune to music whenever they feel sad or depressed, happy or joyous.
Usually, we can enjoy a particular type of music soo much soo that, tend to sing along whenever or wherever we hear the song playing. It could be in a bar, a club, along the streets or having it played on a headset and all we do is sing along, regardless if we have the lyrics right or wrong.
One particular case in this instance is a song by the legendary Highlife Charles Kwadwo Fosu popularly know as Daddy Lumba.
His songs have been sang by many Ghanaians and beyond the borders of the country without actually knowing the lyrics of the song.
One of such instance is his popular song tittled "Mato Odo Mu" meaning I've fallen in love. He could be heard repeatedly singing this line "nsuo ben na ede do"(which river /water body is called love) but virtually every one could hear or sing "shu-bi-du-bi-da".
It came as a surprise to some of us since the lyrics of the song rhymed with how we sang it so we hardly bothered to find the true lyrics.
If you doubt, kinly play the song again, this time at a slower rate and listen for your self.
Do you have any other lyrics people sing wrongly of Daddy Lumba, kindly let us know in the comments session.
Stay tuned for more.
