  1. The correct translation is
    “My Love-trip is almost there.”
    Or,
    “Only a short distance remains in my Love-trip.”

    Meaning: “I am almost there (at my goal) in my journey of Love–in my Love adventure.

  2. I accidentally stumbled on your blog. I want to thank you for the great work you are doing here. I searched through and it seems that you started out quite recently because I can count about 5 or 6 posts that you’ve posted since October. Keep up the good work! This Nelly Uchendu song is a classic.

    I am trying to find more Nigerian bloggers, or bloggers blogging about Nigerian issues on WordPress. Yours is the first I have seen so far.

    Take care.

  3. Could you please translate these three songs for me?
