#MusicMonday! South African House Music

“Lengoma” is a very popular South African house song that was most popular by the time I was in Namibia 🇳🇦 Many people don’t know; Namibia & South Africa were one country under apartheid; having gained their independence in 1990. What I noticed is that their music reflected their very fresh struggle; most songs reflecting cries of freedom. The most interesting people I’ve met til’ this day. Today’s music Monday will be geared towards celebrating an amazing song that means so much.

The translation of the song goes:

People have been standing in my way
Saying I am nothing
And I am a visionary
But
The song within me tells a story
Waking up
And endless joy

I pray you hear this song
It will awaken your soul
It will give you new hope

How long have I told my feet to carry me
To a place where only my heart knows
Where it is not like this my soul is split

I pray you hear this song
It will awaken your soul
It will give you new hope
——
I hope this song is an inspiration to all!
