"Ponraele: A Ponmile Cover" By Kayefi: Another Promotion Of Domestic Violence by OEPHIUS(m): 12:04pm On Mar 18, 2018
In my previous article (more like scribbling) here https://www.nairaland.com/4075269/review-ponmile-reminisce-reference-domestic I spoke about how the track Ponmile by Reminisce although had a nice tone and was cool but the video missed it as it promoted domestic violence and such should not be promoted.

Now some people have done different covers and while some were great, others were not too good but this one by Kayefi struck me as needing attention. The video was cool too and they did their best to have a remake of the room in the original and the lyrics were fabulous.

Lines like "ta lo fe certification ofo?" meaning "who wants a isueless certification?" Which is a fight and stance against society saying a woman who is not married is not responsible.

"Toke Makinwa'n jaiye nigboro" meaning "Toke Makinwa is enjoying her life" which was refering to Toke Makinwa who divorced and is enjoying her life which implies that a woman can be divorce and be happy. Because as long as a marriage is not enjoyable and abuse has been introduced, the woman should not stay but chase her happiness.

But like Reminisce, she also went to show the woman being violent against the man. While a lot of people will claim it was just a shake, it is wrong. People need to learn to keep their hands to themselves and not be physical. Call the police, get a divorce but domestic violence against either the man or the woman should never be encouraged and Kayefi missed it in this video.

Personally, I will have preferred if violence part was removed totally and instead the woman reported her husband to the authorities and he is arrested and jailed. That us how to effectively respond to these thing not by descending down to the level of the attacker.

Hmmmm.

Well, domestic violence shouldn't be condoned except in self defence, the video didn't seem to show it as such instead put the woman in the place of the aggressor.

I fighting societal ills such as this, we need to make sure we dont substitute one evil for another

My translation of reminisce version.

Please note that it is not literal.

(First verse)
I could swim the seas because of you
I could swim the Lagoon because of you
I could climb a pole, an electric pole, because of you
The people would hail me saying well done sir.

(Chorus)
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.

Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.
Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.

(Second Verse)
Love is not enforced nor is it ABC
Baby give yourself to me totally
So that I can be content
I am fearful
But you have no idea
You are the one that my heart desires.

(Chorus)
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.

Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.

Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.


(Third Verse)
I love you no more, it is not a sin,
If you don’t love me again, please let me know,
Don’t let me see you lurking in a corner with Brother Sam, It’s dangerous,
It’s very dangerous.

(Chorus)
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.
Honour me, honour me, baby honour me
Don’t go and have a side man, because you haven’t slept at home for quite a while.

Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.
Don’t go become a divorcee, come and get certification
There are scores of such women in the village as well as in Lagos.


(Fourth Verse)
Are you going to stay when things aren’t pure?
Would you be my umbrella, when its pouring with rain?
If you aren’t going to be there for me, please say so now,
So that I don’t commit suicide because of your conduct.
