In light of the growing tension and spots of violence in South Africa T-Mula’s ‘we’re African’  couldn’t be any more relevant than today. The lyrics are basic sin-song on the surface but once you delve deeper you realise that the African cry is one in the same. We are one people, and ‘everyone is a foreigner somewhere‘. #SayNoToXenophobia 

The Lyrics:

Never let anger and bitterness be controlling ya,
We nah support no Xenophobia ,
One Love, Africa …

CHORUS :

I am an African,
We are African,
My people ought to stop this from happening,
Somebody tryna get a life and you attacking them,
That’s not the love of an African,
See we are African,
Im an African
During apatheid they were battling
For South Africa, becoz we African
Don’t return around and be attacking em.

VERSE 1 :

ReMemeber those days Arpatheid
The rest of Africa came to its aid
Amo ( Ammunition ) , Money , help with the hiding
let us not do these things that are deviding
Or tambo had live in Tanzania
ANC headquarters were somewhere in Zambia
They took the refugees way up in the Gambia
In fact the whole of Africa , they had to carry ya
18 day tour , Mr Mandela’s
Had to go show luv to all the brothers
4 the help given 4 the liberation
1873 Africas a nation
Mozambique Zimbabwe they took bombs
Explode their citizens for your cause
Lota help from Malawi & Nigeria
Coz they know that no man.. is ever inferior

CHORUS:

VERSE 2 :

Feeling like strangers its dangerous
Now our own brothers endanger us
Used to help them now them aiming us
Used to support them now they blaming us
All policies werw aimed at supporting
Oppressed people in SA can’t ignore them
Why they wana kill us now : they asking
Why they wana kill us now
we are one kind of people
we should be equal
Killing is lethal, you know the sequel
Human life is a precious thing
Human life is not a game
Let us not repeat a soweto uprising
I aint finna see people crying and dying ,
Look back to the lusaka manifesto
Head of states worried bout the people in the ghetto

OUTRO :

Little knowledge is dangerous
Educate the masses
Educate the born free
Let them know their history ,
The future is a mystery
We don’t know who’s gonna be needing who
We ain’t got a clue so all we gotta do it stay true
Black White Indian,  We are all African .
One Love one love one love
