Stephen Marley says “Made in Africa”

“Made in Africa” is the brand new song from Stephen Marley featuring Wale and the cast of Fela!; it will appear on Stephen Marley’s upcoming album “Revelation:Part 1: The Root of Life”. The song epitomizes the Orijin spirit of a connected diaspora as individuals of African descent from Jamaica, Nigeria and America joined forces to cook up this empowering track and big up the continent. What is One Love!

Lyrics

[INTRO VOICE 1]
Stars of scientists now conceive that Africa is the first place of mankind, Africans were the first builders of civilization.
They discovered mathematics, invented writing, developed sciences, Engineering, medicine, religion, fine arts, and built the Great Pyramids
An architectural achievement which still baffles modern scientists’

[INTRO VOICE 2]
The 225th Emperor(echo) directly descended from Solomon and The Queen of Sheba
He is the “King of Kings, The Lion of Judah(echo)” The name Haile Selassie I means “Power to the Trinity”

[Verse 1: Stephen Marley]
Educate yourselves, of Africa/To liberate yourself, Africa/Keep your heads up high/No more will we cry/Eeeeyh

Our history that they stole, Africa/Is written in our souls, Africa/All this nation on this earth/Know just what you worth/Well well

Ships that sail to distant places/Robbed us of our rising worlds/History says that you’ve betrayed us/Talking of the Gods you serve/Hear the rambling in the sky/Tears that our fore fathers cry/And today we’re still in chains/Take the shackle from our minds/You’re the corner stone/The king upon the throne

How beautiful of doubt, Africa
Our nation have to bow, Africa
Dont you fall from grace
You’re that secret place
Aye! Aye-ah-aye!

[Verse 2: Wale]
Power to the people, Motherland representa
I’m on trial but the man she my co-defendant
And I demand her attention, can you focus women?
I’m getting closer to the sky errytime I hit it
Haile Selassie I, “Power of the Trinity”
Soul made in nausea, my Vice made in Italy
White mans world that I’m livin’ in, some say
But it was Africa the continent we all came from
Can’t nothing come between me and you
So before I have seeds gotta understand my roots
Gotta understand the truth. We is all king’s ’round here
Lifestyle all fair, work till we fall dead
Paul goin’ hard ’till I urn like a Pall-Bearer
Although my body’s in the U.S my heart’s there
I can never be ashamed of her, I got my features and my name from her
Mama Africa

[Verse 3: Stephen Marley]
The richest place on earth/ Know just what your worth

(HARMONIZING WITH MUSIC)
Talking about the God you serve
(HARMONIZING WITH MUSIC)

Keep your heads up high/No more will we cry

They infiltrate our homes, Africa/ They claim it as their own, Africa/ Now we must stand tall/ To break down all these wall-alls/ Well well

Our children must be taught, of Africa/ The science and the art, Africa/ Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nahhh!

Educate yourself, Africa/ To liberate yourselves, Africa/ Keep your heads up high/ No more will we cry

Beautiful are thou, Africa/ A legend have to bow, Africa/ Oh Oh!

Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
Made in Africa, We share Africa (We share Africa)
