As you hit play, smooth electric guitar strums enter the fray, lighting up the soundscape. Faint drums and sharp kicks are further infused, giving it a proper rhythm. Chacha doesn’t mess about and goes straight to the point with the opening lyrics, “Protecting my peace outchea, all I really want money can get.

Despite the materialistic ideology behind the song, there’s a bit of softness and warmth enveloping the record, as a result of the chill and mellow production, an apparent theme of Chacha’s music. Lines such as, “I just wan cruise my friends, make my mama feel like all is well,” gives us a picture of her intentions, once the money comes.

For all of Chacha’s potential suitors, she lets them understand her present predicament with the phrase, “no be love I go chop, no be love I go take dey flex.” For those with the intention of dating her, they’ll certainly need to come with heavy pockets, as love is not what she’s exactly looking for.

Money is Affection” comes across not only as a cry for help, but more importantly, a cry for money. “Gimme money gimme money, na money I Dey find,” is probably the strongest line in the song that proves this.

Overall, the track is a fun piece with a slow burning energy to it, due to its calm and serene aura. Chacha Wavy’s latest single gives us a real glimpse into her current headspace, and what she’s solely focused on; money.
