“Take” is a great song you definitely can sing to melt the heart of your lover. Timi didn’t disappoint with his wonderful vocals and Olamide came him with his fire rap into the songs.


The video of the song is another wonderful part of the creation directed by video Maestro, Frizzle and Bizzle. It shows Timi’s wife playing the attention receiving partner while, Timi played the love drunk guy who could not resist every look Busola came out with. Olamide then enterted from admist a group of Timi’s friends as he delivered his rap swiftly.

On the negative aspects, the song had some flaws. The chorus seem a little dull for such a wonderful first verse. The beats were supposed to add a little energy to the chorus and after Olamide rap, however, the chorus in a way that made it look like a completely different song.

Nevertheless, the song is a loveable one and we hope it earns the singer lot’s of awards and accolades in between.
