Planning your marriage and childbearing: An African perspective expressed in a musical video

In this musical video, Africa’s juju king, Chief Sunny Ade and beautiful songbird Onyeka Onwenu remind us all to plan before getting married or having children. Produced at the prime of both musicians, this musical collaboration is one of the best, if not the best relevant music collaboration of its time. The music remains relevant today due to its very meaningful topic. This is good music with good lyrics and meaningful message from two of Africa’s most talented musicians.

Enjoy the music.  LYRICS (in STANDARD ENGLISH) PROVIDED BELOW.

My young girl with so much love to give, This thing called love is a serious affair
Think well before you agree, If you love life you will plan it well
If you love me you will wait for me

My dear friend, there is love ahead, Take your time and don’t spoil it
If you make children, Are you ready to care?
If you love life, you will plan it well. If you love me you will wait for me

Having babies, is no joke, You will feed them, give them cloth
And give them love too, If you are not yet ready to carry the burden
Why put it on another one’s shoulder?

Plenty children is said to be assurance for old age, Papa said we should marry
Mama said we should bear children, Plenty children with no food to eat
Makes life so much trouble, If you love me you will wait for me

Happy parents give happy children, Happy family leads to a happy country
Plan well and enjoy your life, If you love me, you will plan with me
If you love me you will wait for me

CHORUS: Wait for me, baby plan with me

African Feature Artist With a Unity Song – Union Africaine – Sekouba Kandia kouyate

Our feature artist is one of the best musicians from Guinea. We find the content of the song quite positive while the tune is very soothing. The effort to deliver part of the song in English is quite commendable and of course it gives the song a cross-appeal. Enjoy!

Everything a Mom says in a 24 hour period…

We have chosen to feature this version of the “Mom Song” by the Northland Church because of its well paced subtitles. It is set to the “William Tell Overature” (lyrics by Anita Renfroe). The video speaks for itself.  Enjoy!
