i'm being punished for asking questions
they tell me my country is a free country
where is all the freedom
or is it only for the highly governmental officials?
african people are in need of the people who can lead
all i see around is rulers
and none of them is skinny like me
what's my music about if i cannot speak the truth
from the heart
they want to have consent with what i rap about
or i'll be pushed out of the business
i thought independence meant power to the people
and not to the few greedy leaders
