Ike Wonder Ft Ball J – African Light lyrics

INTRO
(BALL J)
Reportin live from no nation tv
Apparently we have people gathered
Around here somewhere in Africa
And the people describe the situation
As the feelin of joy
Go out and vote!
And as you can hear the sound of fire works
And helicopters
Its a sign of jubilation and peace
For No Nation TV I am Ball J
Movin on to studio A
Iyk Wonder break it down

VERSE 1
(IYK WONDER)
And that's the remind of the history
Hstory about Africa misery
Can't you feel the painful memory
Or them feel say we no be somebody
Oyibo education don turn to slavery
Divided and confused mama Africa save we
They want see us fall, remember Liberia
But never again we're moving on

CHORUS
(IYK WONDER)
Don't try we have seen the light
Susu pon
Don't try we have seen the light
Gabaniru ebe si na oo
Don't try we have seen the light
Babylon dem
Don't try we have seen the light

VERSE 2
(IYK WONDER)
We can disagree still we respect our color
After them took our resources and gave us mirror
And if you can see Africa don't need to borrow
Africa don't need to follow
African be hero oo
Kwame Nkrumah saw dem, educationally
And Mugabe fought dem physically
Awolowo saw dem too, financially
Mandela Mandela originally
Kwame Nkrumah saw dem, educationally
And Mugabe fought dem physically
Awolowo saw dem too, financially
Mandela Mandela originally

(BALL J)
Yeah they knew the gold was from Ghana
So they introduced the language english
We conclude we know no secrets
And a good education
That is locked up f**ked up
Huh, but the good thing is that
Heroes negros live and learned
So fast forward
From 80's century no more slavery
The present is independence
No more dominance on society
The white supremacy is no more
I love white folks I love coke
But we got our chance for a better cocoa
We grow cocoa but we lost the road
Despite can show us this way
Africa the land of peace
The past we sweep
Awaken lion oh we roar like lions
And we stayin in the jungle
Patriotism is us
Rebles, they named us
Devils, they made us
We loved them they hate us
We served them they slaved us
You not feeling me
We join hands they break us
They planned and invaded us
They control us with dough
They turn our world so cold
Frozen numb
You now feeling me

CHORUS
(IYK WONDER)
Don't try we have seen the light
Susu pon
Don't try we have seen the light
Gabaniru ebe si na oo
Don't try we have seen the light
Babylon dem
Don't try we have seen the light
