A week after Lami Phillips has released her latest single “Kotobata” featuring Olamide off her upcoming album Pieces of Love, we are still none the wiser what “kotobata” actually means so we thought perhaps we could ask Lami to enlighten us.


KOTOBATA  /kɔtɔ-baw-taw/




a person, place, thing or situation that has wahala, trouble; a scattered mess.


“The wife is in KOTOBATA o! Her husband caught her cheating with the gateman.”




used to describe a person, place, thing or situation that has wahala, trouble or depicts a scattered mess.


“This your outfit is KOTOBATA, you look like Mary Amaka.”
