Burna Boy x M.anifest – Another Story

Paroles/Lyrics :

To understand Nigeria
You need to appreciate where it came from

In 1900, Britain officially assumed responsibility
For the administration of the whole of what we now know as
Nigeria from the Niger Company
And then, gradually over the years
British protectorates were established throughout the territory
In 1914, the protectorates were amalgamated into one Nigeria

Actually, there’s one additional detail that bears mentioning
In order to take over the territories from the Niger Company
The British Government paid eight hundred and sixty-five thousand pounds
A huge amount in 1900
So let’s establish a simple truth
The British didn’t travel halfway across the world just to spread democracy
Nigeria started off as a business deal for them
Between a company and a government
Incidentally, the Niger Company is still around today
Only it is known by a different name, Unilever
But that’s another story

Which kind country be this? Chale I conf
Sometimes I for dey move away, maybe a month
More or less, more yawa
Less people power
Same shit, Ghana, Naija, man tire
Stuck in traffic I dey hate delay
Big man get the motorcade, big Benz and the Escalade
Hustle just dey escalate
But March 6, we go celebrate
Every year be the same cock and bull
Propaganda you dey push no dey pull
E dey pain, people tire for this matter
Everyday for thief man, one day for master
« Efie ne fie », me ntumi ‘nfrimu
Ɔman no sɛi aa, yɛn nyinaa yɛ ti mu
Ashi me aa, ashi me aa, ashi me aa
Ashi me aa, ashi me aa, ashi me aa
‘Nso me ntumi ‘nfrimu

They wanna tell you o, tell you o, tell you o
Another story o, story o, story o
Since 1960 them dey play us, why o?
Shey we go dey cry forevermore
E dey pain me, ga-ga o (ahh)
E dey pain me, ga-ga o (ay)
E dey pain me, ga-ga o (ahh)
E dey pain you, ga-ga o (well, well)
E dey pain me, ga-ga o (ahh)
E dey pain me, ga-ga o (ay)
E dey pain you, ga-ga o (ahh)
E dey pain me, ga-ga o, ay ga-ga o
