People by Libianca stays topping Billboard charts and for very good reason. The song doesn’t just speak to you. It screams in pain. If you know anything about Nigerian music, then you would definitely have heard of producer and musician Cobhams Asuquo, the man, the legend, and while he would make a really interesting topic, this article’s not about him.
This is about his cathartic cover of People by Libianca. If you haven’t heard it yet, you should check it out first! Click on this link here.
Now that you’ve hopefully listened and you are not in snotty tears, we have something for you.
Xplorenollywood isn’t all about what not to watch, what to watch and cast to look out for! We also like to play things up and give producers something to think about.
So, based on the fantastic song, we have come up with 3 possible plots that would Bang with Cobhams’ Cover of People.
- A 37-year old woman who’s basically the sole provider for her family and friends. She’s done all she can to ensure that those close to her never lack. But she is betrayed by a lover who leaks her nudes, leaving her devastated. She’s a shadow of her former self. She loses her job, and is unable to keep up with her other sources of income. But no one sees her pain. No one notices that she’s drifting away from them. All they do when they call her is bill her and bill her some more. Eventually, she takes her life, and as her suicide letter is being read, Cobhams’ Cover of People plays.
- A 23-year old man has tried and failed to gain admission into a Nigerian federal university. His parents want him to study law, even though he would rather be an actor. They eventually bribe their way in and he makes it into a prestigious federal university to study law, their choice. He picks up some coping mechanisms during school, including but not limited to drugs and alcohol. He is advised to withdraw and eventually expelled. He gets home and his parents won’t stop shaming him. So, he kills them. Not before some torture and villainous speech.
What do you think?
- An 18-year old girl is emotionally abandoned by her parents. They provide for her financially, but are never there for her emotionally. She turns to love for solace but is constantly being disappointed and shamed. One day, she decides to give her parents a piece of her mind just as the song plays. They listen to her and they change for the better.
