Walk with me down my playlist of 5 songs from Zimbabwe.
The current most played song on my playlist is Jah Prayzah’s Kwayedza.
That mbira instrument has me shaking my head and hair along like that’s the whole reason I grew it. This song is about pride in one’s identity and I wrote down the Kwayedza Lyrics And Translation.
Ijipita – Winky D
This song by Winky D is loaded with meaning; it’s about escaping bondage just like the Israelites did when they left Egypt for the land of Milk and Honey.. Check out the full Ijipita Lyrics and translation
I love a good love story and this song is about a romance between a simple man who wonders if the woman will be able to leave a simple life with him and she, in turn, loves him regardless. Check out the Mebo Mebo lyrics and Translation
This song by Celscius is an appeal or a plea for our country, that how long shall we live a life less than perfect when it seems we have everything we need right at our fingertips. Nyika Yedu Lyrics and translation
Solo na Mustai
My list of songs would not be complete without what could possibly be regarded as Zimbabwe’s greatest love story: Solo and Mutsai; kind of like Romeo and Juliet but also exactly not like it, not at all. Read The Real Story Behind Solo And Mustai
