(A follow up to the song “Mbona”)
(Sung in Swahili)

Verse 1:
Mi si mnyonge: Naona mbali – akili timamu
(I am not helpless: I have vision – my mind is sound)
Niko fiti, niko poa (I am fit, I am well)
Mi si myonge naenda mbali mwili nina nguvu
Niko fiti, niko poa (I am fit, I am well)
Siogopi (I am not afraid of) the challenge ‘cause I will overcome
Nipe nafasi (Give me a chance)and watch me overcome

Chorus:
Twende kazi (let’s get to work!), am ready ready ready
Niko able usinichuje boss (I’m able don’t discriminate me)
Chapa kazi (let’s get down to work) I am ready ready
niko capable usinilenge boss (I’m capable don’t discriminate me)

Verse 2:
Mi si myonge nasikia mengi ninafanya mambo
(I am not helpless, I am aware of opportunities I am doing great things)
Niko fiti, niko poa (I am fit, I am well)
Mi si myonge nishafika sasa mimi na wewe
(I am not helpless, I am here: It’s me and you)
Niko fiti, niko poa (I am fit, I am well)
Siogopi (I am not afraid of) the challenge ‘cause I will overcome
Nipe nafasi (Give me a chance)and watch me overcome

(Chorus)

Bridge:
I don’t need your sympathy I just need opportunities
You know I can, You know I am able school work field
Yes I can just like you

Verse 3:
Ideas ni fresh tena kibao basi nipe nafasi nina mambo
(My ideas are fresh and great. Give me a chance I’ll show you)
Gimme chance pon di school, pon di work, pon di field
(Give me a chance at school, at work, in the field)
Waafi see the fruits of mi labor fi yield
(And you’ll see the fruits of my labor yield)
You never know I could be the next leader
You never know from which hand you coud feed
So don’t look at me like you are more senior
’cause in the end same air we breathe – a
Nipe nafasi (give me a chance)

Pre-song Testimonies:
Anne: When I gave birth to Angel, it wasn’t easy to accept the condition she was in.
Mama Denoh: They thought that either me or his father had sinned.
Henry: It was hard, it was very painful.
Ruth: I asked my mom, why is it only me that am I like this?
Mary:When you go to the mall, when you go to the Church, when you go to visit your neighbours, you don’t see them: Where are they?
Emmy: My dad was sent to be killed…
D.J. Pinye:…Anyway, it’s crazy, it’s just crazy.

Verse 1:
Tarehe kama saba mwezi wa saba (A date like the seventh on the seventh month)
Miaka zimepita kumi na saba (Seventeen years have passed)
Humu duniani nishajipata (In this world where I have found myself)
Mimi, mimi, niko nilivyo (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Sina baba wala mi sina mama (I neither have a father nor a mother)
Siwezi enda mbali, mi najificha (I can’t go far, I hide myself)
Nachoka kujificha, najitokeza (I get tired of hiding, so I reveal myself)
Mimi, mimi, niko nilivyo  (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Nafunga virago vyangu, naenda mbali (I pack my belongings, I’m going far away)
Sijui nifanye nini, niende wapi (I don’t know what to do, where to go)
Nifuate nani mimi, nimwite nani (Whom do I follow? Who do I call?)
Mimi mimi niko nilivyo (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwanikimbia (I don’t see why you run away from me)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwanidharau (I don’t see why you despise me)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwaniepuka (I don’t see why you turn away from me)
Mimi mimi niko nilivyo (I am the way I am)

Chorus:
Mbona? Mbona? Mbona? (Why? Why? Why?)
Mbona? Mbona? Mbona? (Why? Why? Why?)
Mbona? Ahh mbona? (repeat) Why? Ahh Why?

Verse 2: (Sung by Denno)
Wakati Mungu aliniumba (When God created me)
Alipanga mpango wake (He made his plans)
Kwamba mimi niwe jinsi nilivyo (That I should be the way I am)
Mbona, sasa hamnidhamini? (Why then don’t you value me?)
Mwaniona kama sifai (You look at me as if I am worthless)
Sikuchagua niwe jinsi nilivyo (I did not choose to be the way I am)
Nikitembea barabarani, macho mmenikazia (When I walk on the road, you stare at me)
Mbio mbio mwaniondokea, mimi ni kama nyinyi (You run away from me, while I’m just like you)

(Chorus)

Mid-song Testimonies:
Betty: Why are you being carried and you are a grown up, why can’t you walk, they don’t understand.
Henry: Sometimes they’d be telling me “Daddy look here”
Emmy: Many people come if really he has no children
Mary: Its a country problem, and no-one is talking about it.
Anne: What is needed to be changed the most is the mindset of every Kenyan
DJ Pinye: I felt very guilty, because I wasn’t interested in helping my mom take care of my brother.

Verse 3:
Kwanini mwaniepuka, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
Why do you run away from me, while I’m just like you
Na mimi ni kama tu wewe (While I’m just like you)
kwanini mwanidharau? kwanini mwanidharau?
Why do you despise me? Why do you despise me?
Na mimi ni kama tu wewe, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
While I’m just like you, While I’m just like you
Kwanini wanikimbia? Kwanini wanikimbia?
(Why do you flee from me? Why do you flee from Me?
Na mimi ni kama tu wewe, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
While I’m just like you, while I’m just like you
Kwa nini? Kwa nini? (Why? Why?)

(Chorus)

Hafungi Macho (He Does Not Sleep) Lyrics by Willy feat Daddy Owen and Danco

Chorus:
Mungu Baba yeye hafungi macho
(God the father does not sleep)
Habadiliki jana leo na kesho
(He does not change, yesterday, today and tomorrow)
Azijua raha na shida zako
(He Knows your joy and your sorrows)
 
Macho yake makali yaona mambo yote
(His sharp eyes sees everything)
Hata yale yamefichika anaona
(Even the unseen he sees)
Hana jambo la siri asioliona
(There is no secret he does not see)
Umekosa chakula mavazi hata pesa
(You don’t have food clothing and even money)
Kodi ya nyumba karo ya shule hata mchumba
(Your rent, school fees even a beau)
Unadhani sasa dunia imefika mwisho
(You think the world is coming to an end)
 
(Chorus)
 
Jirani, wacha mirungirungi, rafiki wacha maneno mengi
(Neighbor, abandon your worries, My friend, abandon your words)
Sijui kwa nini wanisema, Eti mimi, nimekuwa kafiri
(I don’t understand why you gossip, that I am a hypocrite)
Eti mimi nimekuwa mrui, sijui, wala sisemi kitu
(That I am a backslider, I don’t know, but I am silent)
 
(Chorus)
 
Akisema yuakuona jamani usitie shaka
(If he says he sees you, please do not worry)
Ye halali na hachoki na wala ye habadiliki
(he does not sleep he does not tire nor does he change)
Azijua raha zako, azijua na shida zako
(He knows your joy, he knows your sorrows)
Tuimbeni halleluya Hossanah ye amefufuka
(Let us sing Haleluyah, Hossana he is risen)
Haleluyah, ye halali na hachoki na wala ye habadiliki
(Haleluya, he does not sleep, he does not tire nor does he change)
Haleluyah, tuimbeni haleluya Hossana ye amefufuka
(Haleluya, let us sing haleluya hosanna he is risen)
 
(Chorus)

Nimetambua Lyrics by Bishop Ben Bahati ft. Daddy Owen, Rufftone

mm Bishop Ben bahati, raha ama sio raha
Ni mr.Iggy iggy na Daddy Owen
R kay Acha bassline bwana

Chorus:
Sasa nimetambua ya kwamba kwa yesu kuna raha,
(Now, I have known that there is joy in Jesus)
There is Joy in the Lord
Sasa nimetambua ya kwamba kwa yesu kuna raha
(Now, I have known that there is joy in Jesus)
There is Joy in the Lord

Na mademu nilipanga, panga sana, Lakini sikutosheka
(I had a lot of women, But I was not satisfied)
Nayo boza nilichoma, choma sana, Lakini sikutosheka
(I smoked a lot of weed, But I was not satisfied)
Nakutindi nilitindi, tindi sana, Lakini sikutosheka
(I drank until I was drunk, But I was not satisfied)

God is good, God is good all the time
I swear Mr. Iggy iggy pray unto him
God is good, God is good every time
That is why we ready to know more of you
I have seen Bmw, I’ve seen many benz
All them dem mean nothing to me
Rufftome mr. Miggy iggy, daddy owen
Ben Bahati We tell you that you just have to follow Christ

(Chorus)

Na masomo nilisoma, mpaka ng’ambo, Lakini sikutosheka
(I studied a lot, I even went overseas, But I was not satisfied)
Nazo ndege nilipanda, panda sana, Lakini sikutosheka
(I traveled by air a lot, But I was not satisfied)
Nayo raha niliponda, ponda sana, Lakini sikutosheka
(I immersed myself with wordly pleasures, But I was not satisfied)

NIshampata kweli mimi nishampata
(I have found him, Its true I have found him)
Kama ni pesa, mali nishaona
(I have seen money and riches)
Ee za dunia mi sitaki, nalilia wana wote wenye haki
(Of the world I don’t want, I cry to all the righteous)
Oo Sasa mi nimetambua, za dunia zanyauka ka maua
(I have realized that everything of the world fades like a flower)
Oo yote sasa zinapita, zinapita zinakwisha zakatika
(Everything shall pass away, it will pass, it will end, it will stop)

(chorus)

Ulimwengu ni hasara, bali kwa Yesu ni faida
(The world is a loss, but in Jesus there is gain)
Tumeona watu waliotishwa na mapesa, elimu na mashamba
(We have seen people consumed with money, education and land)
Lakini mwishowe pamoja na maskini wakaaga
(But in the end, they died with the poor)

(chorus)
