If you’re not a Yoruba, let your Yoruba friend help you out
In this context, the first artiste is technically the most welcome artiste while the other one is subject to the first artiste. In another word, we can say the second artiste is the smaller version of the first artiste.
For instance, Rema is highly recognized but locally and internationally than Ruger but their tune is much alike. They sing almost similarly. It’s hard to differentiate.
So in English, the word “Aseju Ni ‘Rema’, ‘Ruger’ Ti Wa Okay” means “having Rema is overdoing, Ruger is enough”.
Let take for example you’re organizing a show and you want an artiste like Rema to turn it up, probably because of his sound, but getting to contract him, he’s demanding up to N10m to show up when you can easily toast Ruger for as less as N2m.
Somebody from your media team can just whisper to you that bringing Rema to your show is overdoing/overspending, Ruger is okay sir.
Another example is DSTV and Startimes. We all know how costly the DSTV decoder and its subscriptions are compare to Startimes. So it’s advisable to someone that want the cheaper product that “Aseju ni DSTV, Startimes ti was okay”.
I hope that’s clear enough?
