Rogie, give it to me, tell me when you want to come. This feeling enchanted, and it’s madness how much I adore you.

Seesaw, Margery Daw, in the church a new pastor, one foot in, one foot out but he’s just a disaster. Saw that girl and liked her so much, went and asked for her number. One foot in, one foot out but she don’t like cucumber.

Make I talk before you don crase. (Let me talk before you go crazy.) Don tey we dey the same place. (We’ve long been in the same place.) The way you do me so na disgrace. (The way you treat me is disgraceful.) Like say I no get fine face. (As though I don’t have a lovely face.) When I call you no dey answer. (When I call you don’t answer.) Be like say you no remember. (It’s as if you don’t remember.) But we were meant to be. (That we were meant to be.) I know you will agree. So do me do me do me…. I need you honey when it’s raining. He calls me doctor cause I saved him. Can’t let me go no if they paid him. And there’s no other that can take him.

When the road gets so tough and I can’t help And I say I don’t have enough to keep on going When the road gets so tough There’s no windows, there’s no windows Let me tell you I’m a fighter Let me tell you I’m a struggler I’m the original sufferhead.
5.
Anytime when you want me I go come running For the sake of the love oh For the sake of the loving

about

Edoheart’s new EP "For the Love", is a celebration of the limitlessness that has guided her through 3 albums and 5 Eps. Written in the wake of a musical uncoupling, two miscarriages, and illness in the family, the release is a tribute to the love of others. The bone rattling bass of opening “Rogie (Oh No).” The playful flirt of “Seesaw.” The sacrifice-acknowledging of pidgin-English track “Original Sufferhead,” Edoheart isn’t content in simply resting in one definition of love, any more than she is exploring a single musical sound. And yes, it’s personal.

“There’s some nakedness,” she admits, “There's nudity, like the clothes are off. People are going to see you and that's okay because when you're being yourself, it's your truth. I have no distance here. I am the person that’s talking.”

But if Edoheart is about anything, she’s about our complexity as people as we fight, survive, and love.

….And that’s a story worth telling.
