Omawunmi, the song star is already working on another hit album entitled 'Stay Alive', the mother of one has confessed to www.nigeriafilms.com that the song, Kokoma is what she was using at home with her mum to play with her daughter.
"I came back from America with my daughter when she was about two and half months or three months. My mum was with me for about four months to take care of the baby. When my mum was with me, I used to sing ‘Omawumi’s baby, Grandma Warri’s baby, Grandma Lekki’s baby’, and so on.
Kokoma is like a drum beat or dance style of highlife that could be related to Ghanaian highlife in the 60′s or 70′s. When my mum cooks, that’s what they sing- ‘kokoma, I stand by, Adebisi Konga’. Adebisi konga is the name of a guy that used to play drums, his name was Adebisi, but we call him ‘Adebisi Konga’.
Then before I released the song, my mum used to sing the song. When the producer of ‘Bottom Belle’ called me that he’s taking the song to Flavour and that he needs me to come out with something different because Flavour will surely bring in his own style. We did it and the song became a hit. Now, a lot of people enjoy the music, from six months to 10 years old. That’s satisfaction to me," Omawunmi said.
Today, that song is an instant hit as even a toddler will shake his or her head on singing the song.
