Nigerian hip-hop artist BlaqBonez has made a name for himself in the music industry, proving that creativity can keep the genre alive in a music scene dominated by Afropop and Afrobeats. In his latest song, “Breaking the Yoke of Love,” BlaqBonez takes a stand against the idea of romantic love, challenging the conventional beliefs and perceptions that people hold about this kind of love.
The Message of “Breaking the Yoke of Love”
BlaqBonez’s “Breaking the Yoke of Love” is a crusader’s song against emotional love. BlaqBonez, along with Nigerian Afropop artists Chike and Raybekah, created a church-themed sound with a message that is not easy to ignore. Chike and Raybekah start the song with a chorus declaring that love was once sweet and great but has now become wicked. BlaqBonez then details why he feels there is no more love on earth, particularly in the context of romantic relationships.
Challenging the Notion of Soulmates
BlaqBonez begins his rap verse by criticizing childhood fairy tales and movies that give children the idea of romantic love. He argues that the concept of soulmates is entirely false, as there is always the possibility of finding someone better. BlaqBonez believes that the idea of having one person that nature or the creator has made for you is a myth that does not exist in reality. He claims that the idea of soulmates is misleading and can lead to disappointment and heartbreak.
The Problem with Romantic Love
According to BlaqBonez, most people in what they believe are great relationships are often in the dark about their partners. He believes that one will never know who his or her partner is sending illicit and personal pictures to. In his short time on earth, BlaqBonez has seen many unfaithful individuals that made him question the idea of romance and love. BlaqBonez thinks that most people who think that they are in a great relationship are often deceived and living in a fantasy world.
A Prayer Session Against Romantic Love
BlaqBonez finishes the song with a prayer session against romantic love, admonishing everyone to break the yoke of love because it is evil. He encourages his listeners to see romantic love for what it is and to be more realistic in their expectations. BlaqBonez’s message is a refreshing take on love, one that challenges the popular notion of love and encourages people to rethink their beliefs.
