ASA: Shine Your Light

Asa - Shine Your Light

What’s on your mind now
You see you’re not so different
So don’t bail out
No excuses, no defence
Say it like you really mean it
Everything you say believe it
Oh yeah!
After the dawn comes the light
And you know nobody can tell you no more
Hallelujah, you believe it
I can see that you can do it

[CHORUS:]
Shine your lights
Don’t let nobody tell you
You can’t shine your light
Go out enter the world
And do just what you like

BEZ: My Baby

Bez - My Baby

My baby knows just when to smile for me
My baby knows just when to smile for me
Like a rainbow, she’ll smile for me
Like a rainbow, she’ll smile for me

My baby knows just when to smile for me
My baby knows just when to smile for me
Like a rainbow, she’ll smile for me
Like a rainbow, she’ll smile for me

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

TIMI DAKOLO: Great Nation

Timi Dakolo - Great Nation

VERSE 1

Here we stand as a people
With one song, with one voice
We’re a nation, undivided and poised
We will take our stand, and build our land
With faith to defend what is ours

VERSE 2

Here we are as a people
With one heart, for one cause
We’re determined to rebuild and restore
Where freedom reigns, and truth prevails
A land where there’s hope for us all
A land where there’s hope for us all

VERSE 3

We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation

SOMI: Four African Women

Somi - Four African Women

VERSE 1

My skin is black

My forehead long

My hair is wooly too

And my back is strong

Strong enough to carry on

After genocide and all my family gone

What do they call me?

My name is Gatsinzi

 

VERSE 2

My skin is pink

It used to be black

My mirrors and my magazines

Made me cry

Discarded western bleaching creams

Eat away at my skin and self-esteem

What do they call me?

Beauty queen
