The #fvckyouchallenge was started by Kizz Daniel who asked other gifted vocalists and performers to make renditions of his now infamous Fvck You song. The national challenge was well embraced by musical powerhouses such as Tiwa Savage and Davido. The sensational Stonebwoy embraced the challenge too, and impressive does not adequately express the fact that this cover is lit.
His lyrics are cryptic but enticing and amusing as is the original version. He has issued a disclaimer that the diction in his cover is not targeted at anyone but is a mere display of his gift. His fans, however, think that the disclaimer is unnecessary because they know he is a good-hearted person who would not attack people through music. Stonebwoy, in a Facebook post, gives us a tease of his cover that has been watched by numerous people. It has sent all of Nigeria talking his praises. The lyrics that he posted on social media are the following:
We ah go Ard pon dem again
Slay Le Le Le
Slay Le Le Le
Slay Le Le Le
Slay Le Le Le Queen
Anti-wrinkle cream no fit to save you
Remember inna Di Next Few Years
No Man Go Dey Hail You

He then goes on to sing the chorus. The Facebook video is about a minute long, so the chorus is missing. Check out the original lyrics by Kizz below and compare to see how Stonebwoy’s creativity in his cover real:
It's Young John The Wicked Producer

The Slay Queen (Fvck You Cover ) video
The simple video that Stonebwoy first posted on this official Facebook account is only a minute long. While it is not a clear video and it lacks colour, he is seen in an uncomplicated studio setting. The singer has worn a simple vest that exposes his perfect arm muscles. On his head over the tied back dreadlocks is a pair of recording headphones. Someone else is recording an unrefined video of his studio session using a camera that is not high-end.
A copy of the audio, albeit 20 seconds longer and with the lyrics only, is available on his YouTube channel. In this clip, the chorus is featured, and it remains unchanged from the original version.
Reactions from the public
Despite the poor-quality and overly simple video, the Stonebwoy – Slay Queen (Fvck You Cover) has elicited plenty of positive responses from the public. His aficionados have expressed nothing but gratefulness and praise for his creativeness. The simplicity of the video allows people to focus more on the lyrics.
Men relate more to the title Slay Queen since it is a widely used phrase that often has a negative connotation of women to earn a living through prostitution. Many women think that the lyrics are well-deliberated because they highlight a societal challenge in contemporary Nigeria and the world at large.
Here are some of the comments on his Facebook page:
Maxwell De-Souza: "Stonebwoy..One wish; all I want is to attend your studio session. I’ll sit quietly , with a glass of juice, no phone calls nor texting, nothing… just wanna watch Magic unfold right before my eyes!"
Shadrack GodsPlan: "Apart from Gold, Diamond, Bauxite, Oil that we export, Stonebwoy is another cultural resource that we have."
Ramat Kinda: "Are u aware u are so talented. Keep it up!"
Papa Scuby: "A KING needs no introduction"
Yaw Afari: "My guy you didn’t even need to put out a disclaimer….we know you are full of positivity and whoever understands and appreciate music will figure out that the lyrics are directed to no one. By the way mad composition"
Stunner Ghevu: "Sometimes when I sit down watch the music officer organized Good lyrics and frop it with passion I wonder how and where he get them from. This guy is spirit. The guy is really #god #Bhim till last breath"
Endless Ayowa Perbi Deuces: "Eeei Stonebwoy now I dey worship your picture. U are the best lyrics killer"
Godwin Fletcher: "My love for you keeps growing each n everyday..BHIM to the world."
The appreciation and love for this cover do not end on Facebook. On Stonebwoy's official Instagram page, the same trend is evident. People from different walks of life are pleased by the lyrics and his vocals. There is more positive vibe on his Twitter handle. A few people, however, have expressed dissatisfaction with the cover, but this is always expected. Haters are a stepping step to soaring greater heights, so soar higher Stonebwoy!
