Madtraxx Mejja & Kidkora – Dabotap

Dabotap is a hilarious song about guys “Double Tapping” girls photos on Instagram. The song is jam packed with modern phrases from TBT to screenshot while the video shows classic social media images of girls taking selfies. My favourite line is:  “But you send me DM’s when I want it. I don’t have to say nothing on the comments.” Pure social media gold! You’ll be singing Dabotap for days after listening to this song.

Original Lyrics

Chorus[Mejja]:

Ilianza Na Ka Selfie(Dabotap)

Nikaona TBT (Dabotap)

Akapiga Screenshot Ya Likes (Dabotap)

Haha, Pia Mi Nika Like(Dabotap) {x2}

Verse 1[Mejja]:

Ilianza Na Kaselfie Nika Dabotap,

Akanibamba Tukaenda Whatsapp,

Ma Late Night Tulikuwa Tunachat,

Anatuma Mapicha Niko Zile Chap Chap,

Baby Gal Nataka Tu Link Up,

Kesho Yake Yap, Vile Alifika,

Alikua Ameiva Kaa Kwa Zile Picha,

Jokes Kidogo Akaanza Kutabasamu,

Akanikaribia Tukapigana Munju,

Ikanibamba, Ikaenda Kuingia Usiku,

Kabla Atoke, Tukapiga Ka Selfie,

Akaeka Instagram, Nika Dabotap

CHORUS[MEJJA]

Verse 2[Madtraxx]:

Omilodi, Call The Police,

I Like The Selfie But I Love The Body,

Lazima Tap, Tap Kwa Picha Ya Rasa,

Insta Video Vile Unatwerk Ah,

Sinimenoki Picha Yako Na Kui,

Pia #TBT Ukiwa Tu Katoi,

And A Nigga Gotta Slide In The DM,

And You Know I Like To Chat In The PM,

And I Know Some Niggas Thirsty Kidogo,

Joe Muchiri Always Liking The Photos,

But You Send Me DM’s When I Want It,

I Dont Have To Say Nothing On The Comments,

CHORUS[MEJJA]

Verse 3[Kid Kora]:

Smile, Smile, Pause, Pause,

Cheers, Click, Damn, Now Thats A Picture,

Coz When It Comes To Instagram I’m An Addict,

Looking Through Your Pictures In This Traffic,

You’ve Got A Fat Ass, I Double Tap That,

A Cute Face, Nice Waist, Thats A Screen,

A Pic Of You In 98 Thats A Throwback,

And I’m Still Looking At You Like I Would Hit That,

So Look At Me, I’m A #MCM Coz A Nigga Stay Fly,

Lika A KLM, Holla,

CHORUS[MEJJA]

[MADTRAXX]

Eyo Kora, Sare The Groundie You Guy,

English Lyrics

Chorus[Mejja]:

It started with a selfie (double tap)

I saw a TBT (double tap)

She took a screenshot of the likes (double tap)

I also liked (double tap)

Verse 1[Mejja]:

It started with a selfie,I double tapped

She got me excited we moved to whatsapp

Late night chats

She sends pics, I’m very fast

Baby girl I want us to link up

The next day, when she arrived she was as hot as in her pics

A few jokes and she started smiling

She moved closer and we started kissing.

It was exciting, it was getting dark.

Before she left we took a selfie,

She put it on Instagram and I double tapped.

CHORUS[MEJJA]:

Verse 2[Madtraxx]:

Oh my Lord, call the police

I like the selfie but l love the body

I must double tap on the butt pic

Instavideo the way you twerk

I really like your picture with Kui

Even the #TBT of when you were a kid

And a nigga gotta slide in the DM

And you know i like to chat in the PM

And I know some niggas are a little ‘thirsty’,

Joe Muchiri always liking the photos

But you send me DM’s when I want it.

I dont have to say nothing on the comments

CHORUS[MEJJA]:

Verse 3[Kid Kora]:

Smile, Smile, Pause, Pause,

Cheers, Click, Damn, Now Thats A Picture,
