In this place, Naija Banquet tries to explain the meaning of “Asake Peace Be Unto You” Lyrics.

Peace Be Unto You is the latest jam released by Asake, a popular Nigerian singer, songwriter and self-acclaimed king of sounds and blues.

Since its release, PBUY has garnered a massive patronage from the fans of Asake in Nigeria and other countries of the world.

Meaning of Asake “Peace Be Unto You” (PBUY) Lyrics

Here is the meaning of Asake latest single, PBUY.

Basically, the song captures the new level of stardom in which the Asake now operates. In Peace Be Unto You Lyrics, Asake talks about his life and his wishes now that he has acquired the wealth.

Peace Be Unto You opens with the song personae advising the listener to hustle their way up.

According to him, he doesn’t need to keep hammering that he should “buckle up” before he takes him seriously.

Asake speaks from experience in PBUY because he was once in the trenches, living a low life before he finally becomes a super star.

In Stanza one of Peace Be Unto Lyrics by Asake, the song persona acknowledges the fact that he is now in the spotlight.

Asake is happy about this achievement because it has fetch him riches. In fact he boasts about his fat wallet in the lyrics of Peace Be Unto You (PBUY).

For instance, Asake asks with pride, “Range rover meji, e lo ma je, je, je?” Loosely translated as What is the cost of Two Range Rovers?

Besides, Asake mentions the burdens that comes with being in the spotlight. According to him, everybody wants his attention now that he is successful.

Describing the crowd of attention he gathers, Asake explains that it is so massive that “everybody wants to tear my shirt.”

Additionally, the song persona notes that among these people are the good ones and the bad ones. He however, says that he won’t allow his fame to center his head.

"I just blow but omo I know myself
Before dem use me I go use my sense, my sense."

Given these realities that surround his fame, Asake prays to God to shower his blessings on him and double his wealth.

This prayer is sincere because anyone who has experienced hardship at any point in their life will never like to taste such horrible life again.

He goes on to beg God to be his ultimate guide always and not allow him to lose his treasures before his enemies.

However in stanza 2 of Peace Be Unto You Lyrics, Asake addresses two ladies. He seems to care about the first lady Emiliano. He tells her to watch her steps carefully.

On the other hand, the song persona seems to dislike Tola, the second lady. In fact, he denies knowing her. And, that’s because she is proud and full of herself.

That said, we tried to connect the title of the song to the lyrics.

We realise that the opening lines of PBUY chorus – “Assalam alaykum” is a greeting phrase in Arabic meaning Peace Be Upon You.

Though, the lyrics of Asake Peace Be Unto You could have been better written with the phrase appearing much earlier in the lyrics, the song is good enough.

At least, we are able to hear the personal testimony of Asake since he became a star in the music industry.

In the final analysis, it pays to work hard. And when success finally comes, one should enjoy it merrily but one must not allow the fame and riches that comes with it to enter one’s head.

Again, one should always pray for protection from evil people lurking around with evil intentions.

Below, you will find the Asake Peace Be Unto You Lyrics
