Waxtaan Wi, The Conversation The conversation in closed door Keep it a secret that’s how We can get back to our nation You belong to the people You are a witness in this society Let’s speak one voice To prevent a bribery If not you will be backing foes By praising them they won’t give you a respect For it is a kind of betrayal
Wax 04:27
Wax, The Speech The speech suddenly starts crying Cause the person making it Is not the right one to do so That’s why he is mistaken This is not the right place to give a speech No one has time to listen This is not the right moment to make speech That’s why people are not interested Telling speech is like eating wheat If you don’t chew, you can be chocked
Gem 05:26
Gem, Belief You got a belief and i got mine Respect your way and do not criticize mine Just focus on your movement We only can join on what we know How about the tolerance and leniency One must put people together The true and educated person Must not have ego or be sectarian He must not show power but forgiveness
Jiko 06:07

Nguur #2 04:37
Nguur # 2, Executive Power In Africa political leaders send opponents to jail After manipulating the lawmakers They inculpate them without any reason Otherwise preventing any power change People remain suspicious While their partisans keep silent The political leaders worry about their fate They oppress the people And embezzle the public funds Which is a crime And opportunists praise them Because only interest matters
