Asante Wakenya by Influx Swagga

Our Family out there in Kenya this is the Doctor http://www.lyricalsurgeon.com and we need your help! We notice that a lot of hip hop world wide does not get much attention .... and in an effort to introduce our audience to different styles of hip hop globally we came across Influx Swagga out of Kenya - the only thing is that there are not any quality translators for swahili so we figured we would ask the family here for some assistance. We used what translators we could (Google and two other sources) but some phrases we could not piece together.

Here is the original song "Asante Wakenya" (Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/artist/song_details/5136376] and below that is our translation:



Kiitikio

Asante wakenya kwa kunisikiliza

Asante wakenya sasa tufanye mambo

Shairi Moja

Hapo tulia nikuelezee, maarifa niwafukuzie

Nisimame na ukweli kidete, siongopi yeyote mola atanilinda.

Hili wingu linapita bana, bona tena wakuelezee

Kwani unasahau hawa ndio walele utokea mtaani baada ya miaka tano.

Kiitikio

Asante wakenya kwa kunisikiliza

Asante wakenya sasa tufanye mambo

Shairi Mbili

Hata kama ulikataa katia, hata kama ulikubali katiba

Una haki ya kujielezea, mtu wangu nashukuru haukununuliwa

Kura yako si ya kupiganisha, kura yako ni kupatanisha,

Kura yako ndiyo maisha yako ni kweli ndiyo inatuakupa Kenya unayotaka.

Kiitikio (xMbili)

Asante wakenya kwa kunisikiliza

Asante wakenya sasa tufanye mambo

Shairi Tatu

Eeh....Hakuna maana tupigane kila time tukipiga kura,

Kwanza sisi mayouth....

Hatujuani hata nasecond name....

Juu hii Kenya ina wenyewe,

Unajua ni nani? Eh....

Ni mimi na wewe, eh ni mimi na wewe....

Sonic sounds ndani ya nyumba

Mziki nafanyia justice bila hata practice.

Uliza Tena

Kiitikio (xMbili)

Asante wakenya kwa kunisikiliza

Asante wakenya sasa tufanye mambo

Asante Wakenya
