about

"I felt the song had a great vocal performance so I decided not to overshadow, but to expose the depth of the song through basic drums and little or no synthetic sounds. So I chose to use a basic piaono with 1 repeated note, a brass section on parts and another piano and xylophone fusion with a basic progression. The song deserves to have it's message heard clearly, so the instrumental should be as simple as possible" by RMX by Dj TWwenty6 -

verse 1
there’s a woman coming from the next town
she’s looking for someone very often seen
and there’s a man who’s lonely with his own thoughts
he’s hiding from the woman and those lovely kids
i remember when she said
she really never gave up
that’s when i cried i could see it in my own eyes
and just the same
she was always my best friend

Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
u can look and decide
Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
ubananuzi makes me
Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
you can look and decide
Je’s my friend
ubananunzi makes me

naamuka asubuhi na mapema
njia ni moja
mpaka adis yani ababa
ju maisha ndio hii
tusha amua kurudi kiutamaduni
nahupatwa Africa
asiye kubali kushindwa
ye ni mshindani kweli
wana sema akili ni mali
basi
wacha nikuongezee zangu
wachilia ngoma
wacha ibambe bambe
skiliza ngoma
kisha uchange change
ukatike ngoma
ujazike ngoma
akili yetu ndio thahabu
ndio sababu
uko
pale uko
bembeleza kisomo sababu hayo ndio mambo tunayofanya
tuna breathe fire
wamechukua daia
wakidai ati africa ni vita na umalaya
skiza!

Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
u can look and decide
Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
ubananuzi makes me
Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
you can look and decide
Je’s my friend
yebo yebo yes
ubananunzi makes me

she’s a woman dressed in a garment with a sense of his direction
he’s the man with the light in the darkness
that’s the connection
books and movies is the sequel
in the making of the picture
and my friends are the writers and the actors
and directors

kwa mabrasa
kule gerezani wamepangwa kama
samaki mkebeni
watu wanalilia haki na ukweli
sasa cheki wakiteta
kupepeta time
na kumeta meta
wakicheza mind
hawa mesi tuko clever
and with bright light from the weather
arise and together
the feelings forever
we bring it and never
give in
whenever u feel it
cheza mara mbili
africa ni kwetu
au
mara mbili
afrika ni kwetu au
mara mbili
brother to brother we need each other
we need to stand up
we need to build each other
many times i wonder how its gonna work how its gonna work
coz you are the troops to get us thru
