about

‘Lukundo’ is a word in the Taita dialect (the language of the artiste); a befitting one describing what this 13 track album talks about – Love. The message in this album is simplified into an everyday perspective that immediately connects with the listener.

This music is all about the African sound and the groove that gets an African swaying.

UBETI: Umewahi saa zingine, jikuta umezubaa, umepoteza mda (eeya)

Hivi ndivyo utanikuta nikikuwaza, nimeduwaa

KIITIKIO: Nina penzi la kupaa, anayenifaa, anyaredhisha.
Nina penzi la kupaa, anayenifaa, utafiti kwisha.

Wacha nikupende, na nikupe raha, pendo la maisha (Maisha milele)

KIITIKIO:
Ni wewe, kipenzi cha maisha.
Kilelele cha raha sitafika.
Si ndwele yale yaliyopita.
Nataka tuwe pamoja milele.

Kwa loli mlungu wanirasimia. Wanineka mndu mcha unikunde.

Mara kwa mara, wapendanao hukosana. Cha muhimu sio vita, ni kusameheana.

Nikupende, unipende
Nisamehe, na nikusamehe.

Nikupende, unipende
Nisamehe, na nikusamehe.

DARAJA
Tutatofautiana, tena tutarudiana.
Turudiane tupendane, mpenzi.

MWANAUME

VERSE:
So many times, I’m not sure I’m doing things right,
mwanaume ni effort, stay in the fight!
I’ve got to be, everything she needs me to be,
Itabidi mpango, na ka-bidii.

PRE-CHORUS:
No one told me that the cost was this high.
I have wings, but can I fly?

CHORUS:
(Mwanaume eh, mwanaume ah
Mwanaume eh, aah) X2

VERSE:
Here come the bills, here comes the struggle for pride.
Sikubali kushindwa, I’m justified.
The pressure’s real and I’ve got to ignore how I feel.
Lazima ka-njia, labda ka-deal.

(PRE-CHORUS)

(CHORUS)
Mwanaume (jikaze, tia bidii)
Mwanaume eh, aaah!

Ufalme wako na ufike. Utakalo lifanyike, duniani kama mbinguni.

Utaweza, tekeleza, kumbuka hekima

Track Name: Nalola ft Shinde
Nawonie mwai ugokie Sana, iguo.
Odeka na waghenyi wake, ini, chia rapo.
Jingi siwonie, mwai ugokie huwo.
Nasinda nikimlola, lakini ndeuko

(TRANS: I saw a really beautiful girl the other day. She was with her friends & I was about my business. i'd never seen such a beautiful girl before. I've been looking for her but can't find her)

Waendie hao? (Where did she go?)
Mzawo ni hao? (Where's she from)


Nawemlola eeh nawemlola, nawemlola na dime
Nawemlola eeh nawemlola, nawemlola na kio.

(I am searching for her day and night).

Diwonana lii?
Nawewesera dikuane.
Nawelomba kila ituku,
Mlungu uniredie mkundwa wapo,
Wapo Wa Kala na Kala.

(When will we see each other? I am waiting for when we will meet. I'm praying every day that God will bring me my loved one, my loved one for ever)

Naweweseria. (I'm waiting)
Nawemlombia. (I'm praying for him)

Nawewesera, eh nawewesera, nawewesera na dime
Nawewesera, eh nawewesera, nawewesera na kio

(I'm waiting day and night)

Nambona nikienda chia mbuwenyi
Nikamanya ni omoni.
Naweserie na Sena wanilolie,
Dikundane kwa Kala.

Her; I waited, and he searched for me. We shall love each other forever).

Namlolie eh namlolie, namlolie na dime
Nikamlola eh nikamlola, nikamlola na kio.
