Hello, out there all you lovely people of the blogosphere. How are you? I hope your life is rocking and that you always hum a beautiful tune 😉
Wasn’t yesterday a great day for music? Thanks to all who have shared their brilliant songs with us!!! And here we go again. Today’s songs are either about a pet or for your pet. I have chosen a song that expresses what our rescue greyhound means to us:
JOY utter, utter JOY
And she inspires a lot of love in us. The Swahili word for joy or happiness is Furaha and Barakah the Prince made a song with the same name. Barakah the Prince is from Tanzania and started singing at the local church choir. He later decided to pursue a music career, and AfricaMusic.com wrote about him:
Last year (2014) Barakah was among the artists who performed same stage with International artists like T.I from U.S.A, Davido, Waje from Nigeria, Victoria Kimani from Kenya and lots more, on the biggest annual event in Tanzania goes by the name of SERENGETI FIESTA.
Please enjoy “Furaha” and if the video doesn’t play here on the blog follow the link underneath it.
Unfortunately, I could not find any English translation to the lyrics. So I used the swhili lyrics and Google Translate to give us an idea what the song is about. I know it has its problems but better a nearly right translation than none I would think 🙂
Furaha by Barakah the Prince
Hmmm …. aaahhh … My happiness Without pain would sigh very much For pain has made me learn eeh Good god is not the bad provider of pain I went through with the breath he gave me and the baby of the week not you know The pain beyond duty is written
Yea … if I remember your pain is a lesson I can’t regret Though the evil I went through hurts and I forgot It would not have been life would have been a baby you would not have left but God not Athum gave me the patience of every situation.
[CHORUS] That is today (now I am happy) See the relief (now I am happy) I love you I know (now I am happy) You are a mother I am not proud of (now I am happy) For her beauty (now I am happy) the one I am with
This new beginning is the best I love Until I feel crazy for him yeah And yet home is a caregiver. To me, the kid asked the creator He ee yeah yeah He aaah am in love with you my baby Boo nim surrender Am crazy of you
