As indicated by omgvoice, Here are a few songs that numerous Nigerians have been singing incorrectly since they were kids:
1. Sandalili Sandalili
Every primary school child from the 90’s knows this song. We sang it and we were proud. But did you know we’ve been singing it all wrong since time immemorial?
The correct thing is Standard living, standard living.
I wonder how we made the jump from standard living to sandalili.
2. The most excellency is Jesus
This is another song many Christians sing. I bet you will hear this when you go to church on Sunday. The correct wording is:
The most excellent king is Jesus.
Don’t worry, it is okay to cry.
3. Jangilova epo motor
This was another favourite of us when it comes to playing games. I wonder where we got Jangilova when it is:
Jingle over like a motor
4. Osingo Osingo, Praise the Lord
