Ed Sheeran’s “Bibia Be Ye Ye” Lyrics Meaning
This lighthearted song (“Bibia Be Ye Ye”) was as a result of a trip Ed Sheeran paid to Ghana to visit Ghanaian musical artist Fuse ODG, whose real name is Nana Richard Abiona. The latter is best known for his single “Antenna”, which scored high on the UK charts.
The lyrics are a lovely mix of English and Twi, a dialect of the Ashanti people of Ghana and the title assures all its listeners that “Everything will be well”.
It is a song of hope and surrender to a power higher than us that no matter what happens, at the end of the day, things will surely work out, like they usually do.
It has a happy go lucky feel to it and is very bubbly, it tells one that no matter how rough the day was, and did not turn out the way we want it to, there’s always tomorrow and tomorrow will be a brighter better day.
Throughout, “Bibia Be Ye Ye”, Sheeran encourages the listeners to never give up in life. Whenever they fall, they should just pick themselves up, dust themselves down, embrace and face life again because “Everything Will Be Well”.
“Bibia Be Ye Ye” is a Tribute to Ghana
“Bibia Be Ye Ye” is also actually Ed Sheeran’s way of paying tribute to a wonderful three weeks he spent in Ghana, West Africa.
