Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, thrilled the audience at the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) global conference, Tuesday.
The event which held in Iganmu, Lagos State, today November 15, saw Osinbajo in a trending video singing and dancing to Kizz Daniel’s 2022 hit, ‘Buga.’
Osinbajo represented President Buhari at the event and spoke on the theme, ‘Linking Tourism, Culture and Creative Industries: Pathways to Recovery and Improving Development’.
He stressed that; cultural genres, including arts, music, crafts, dances, and cultural festivals cut across culture and language.
He however described the term Music as a global language with reference to the popular Kizz Daniel hit song ‘Buga’ and Burna Boy’s ‘Last Last.’
Osinbajo then started singing ‘Buga,’ which drew cheers from the audience. The vice president added, “You know that your ‘buga’ has to be a real ‘buga’.”
“The phrase ‘buga won’ is a Yoruba expression. It means ‘flaunt your hard-won success, take the fruit of your work. Take the opportunity, show off your successes.’ Don’t sit down there thinking ‘my success is too small.’ Feel it, show it off.
“Many people all over the world are squaring up their shoulders and saying, ‘It doesn’t matter how hard it seems or looks, I must show off my own success, no matter how little it may seem to others. It may seem to you that it’s small but I’m just going to buga won anyway.” Osinbajo said.
