Tiwa Savage and Don Jazzy’s monster hit “Eminado” has taken on a life of it’s own as parents are now naming their babies “Eminado”. Shortly after the song was released many wondered what “Eminado” meant. It turns out it was made up by Don Jazzy and in Don Jazzy language it means “good luck charm”.
The Mavin boss and super producer revealed in a series of tweets that the song has now become so influential and is being passed on to the next generation. He tweeted,
