Afri-tunes Wk 90 - "Sawa By Jay Melody" Cover

in AFRI-TUNES3 months ago (edited)

Hello Afri-tunes community!
It's another week and Merit is here once to share an African tune, I'm always happy to be able to share African music every week, it's fulfilling and fun.

So for this week, I decided to do the cover of the song "Sawa", a Tanzania song sang by Jay Melody, one of the most talented Tanzania artist and my favourite.

I've sang one of his songs here on Afri-tunes before and I can still remember how much a lot of persons enjoyed the song to the extent that they wanted me to sing it again. Well, I'm hoping this new one I learnt will come out nice for you too hehe.

This song is another love song but my main reason for loving it is the beat, the artist and the progression of the way it is sang. I had a little difficulty pronouncing the language words on this one but I did try my best to learn it for a much longer time.

I'll say you watch the original and also get the lyrics yourlsef, the meaning isn't so sweet as the language say them for me but maybe it's just me so I'm leaving if for you to find out yourself lol.

The main thing is, he is singing about how beautiful and well created his girl is and he loves her alright (sawa).

They say it's a perfect song for summer (dry season in Nigeria) 🤣

I hope you do enjoy my cover of the song as much as I did, and I look forward to sharing more African music. Special thanks to my supporters, those giving me corrections which helps to make my videos come out better and thanks for viewing!!!

Song Lyrics

Mapenzi tu
Nimepagawa hamjui
Ye kila mara ananifanya silali
Namwaza yeye tu
Anayeweka roho yangu juu
Ana utoto tu
Sema uzuri ananipaga asali
Mi nailamba tu

Na penzi letu ni kama sunna
Na ulinzi kama suma
Hata akinuna
Bado unapendeza mchumba
Mkimuona ananichuna
Msinionee huruma
Cha mtu huliwa na mtu
Kutu yake chuma
