Are you that African girl, who knows where they are coming from, loves the color of her skin, the texture of her hair,  whose heritage and culture has molded her into this beautiful lady?

Are you that woman who seeks to define and defy everything they say of you who has chocolate skin?

I call this an African Girl redemption song. Just inspiring you with love.

I LOVE THIS SONG by Naomi wachira, CAN YOU RELATE?

WORDS

I’ve been walking down this road
for about 35 years now, and I can tell you, it’s been one hell of a ride
And I’ve been carrying my father’s words that he said to me
learn to be wise, walk with integrity and be honest
and I can hear my grandma say, child I’ve got nothing to give you
but may God be with you, in that distant land
I am an African girl, well I know where I’m coming from
And I know who I want to be
I am trying to defy everything they said of us
we who have chocolate skin

In the back of my mind all I can hear ooh ooh are voices
of those who are here and those who’ve already gone
And I can hear them whispering, mwari witu,
when you go their land, please represent us well
and I can hear my grandma say, child I’ve got nothing to give you
but may God be with you, in that distant land
I am an African girl, and I know where I’m coming from
And I know who I want to be
I am trying to defy everything they said of us
we who have chocolate skin x2

I will sing, I will sing, I will sing
Ngai, wa Ibrahamu, ithe witu, udirikane
tondu wa thakame ya murugwo, udirikane, udirikane
ndeithagia maundu makwa mothe, ndikamachonorithie, udirikane
ndeithagia maundu makwa mothe, ndikamachonorithie, udirikane
I will sing, I will sing, I will sing

I am an African girl, and I know where I’m coming from
And I know who I want to be
I am trying to defy everything they said of us
we who have chocolate skin.
