By Musa Sunusi Ahmad

Africa, oh, Africa,
The secrecy in the universe,
Open hell for the tyrants.

Africa, oh, Africa,
The attractive odd among even,
Food of thought for the wise.

Africa, oh, Africa,
The invention of creativity,
A duplicate for the mainframe.

Africa, oh, Africa,
The brutality of the highest order,
Sibling of the wicked murderer.

Africa, oh, Africa,
The bags for rotten eggs,
Boxes of unpleasant smells.

Africa, oh, Africa,
The stable of sadness,
Home of humbled greatness.

Wake up! wake up! rise up Africans!
It’s time for the black to rule the world,
It’s never late to claim back our lost heritage.

Africa, oh, Africa.
