The cradle of humanity.
The brain behind thousands of civilizations.
The mother of generations and the charm behind many beauties.

Even before empires you were formed.
Even before the days of the pyramids, you were formed.
Before horses took on foots and chariots raced in battle, you were formed.

You gave birth to Kings and Queens and breast-fed many heroes and heroines.
Kingdoms were build and named in you.

Africa- live free, rule well.
Because many things have been said and many more will be said about you.
A- Admirable
F- Free forever
R- Resolved, resolute and resourceful
I-  Indomitable
C- Courageous
A- Attractive

Africa- the cradle of humanity
Africa- live free, rule well.
