Of Ndiri Ndega – Holy Ten Featuring Feli Nandi

Ndiri Ndega is a track by Holy Ten featuring Feli Nandi from the album Energy. It’s a collaborative union with gospel meeting Hip Hop and Afrobeats. Feli Nandi easily carries the track with her distinct vocals over the contemplative instruments which make this a meditative track.

Of all the tracks on the Energy Album this one stood out for me.

Ndiri Ndega Holy Ten ft Feli Nandi Lyrics and Translation

Ndiri ndega ndinochema
On my own I will cry
Dai mapota muchikanda zano
If you could throw some ideas
Ndiri ndega ndinopera
On my own I will cry
Makamutsa wani Razaro,
You resurrected Lazarus
Hunhu hwenyu hunorema
Your essence is precious
Musande musandi fencer imi
Holyness don’t fence me out
Ndiri ndega ndinochema
On my own I will cry
Ndiri ndega ndino
On my own I will
Ndiri ndega ndinochema
On my own I will cry
Dai mapota muchigara pano
If you could come by here
Ndiri ndega ndinopera
On my own I will cry
Makamutsa wani Razaro,
You resurrected Lazarus
Hunhu hwenyu hunorema
Your essence is precious
Musande musandi fencer imi
Holyness don’t fence me out
Ndiri ndega ndinochema
On my own I will cry
Ndiri ndega ndino_
On my own I will…

Verse 1
Ndohorera pano
Here I make my stand
Vakakanda Mapfumo
When they throw spears
Ndichamagama ndodzorera kwavo
I will catch and send them back
Vakandirotera nhamo
When they dream up my suffering
Ndichapfugama ndogonyera pano
I will kneel down and stay steadfast
Chatikombera chando (hoyo)
The cold surrounds us
Zvatiomera mambo
Its hard for us my lord
Zvatigozhera pano
Its difficult here
Honai honai
Look look
Musandirasazve tongai
Don’t forsake me, take over
Mwari tongai
God take over
Gomo iri rovai
That mountain strike it down
Toppai mvura iyi toppai
Top up this water, top it up
Honai, Honai
Look look
Musandirasazve honai
Don’t forsake me, take over
Mwari tongai
God takeover
Gomo iri rovai
That mountain strike it down
Toppai Mvura iyi Topai
Top up this water, top it up
Ndiri ndega ndofa
On my own I will die
