Blood smells like hate
Oh Africa, you have naked your sons
Your people have turned to baits
To hate, heartlessness and xenophobic slavery,
The future has run away for safety,
Oh Africa, kills her sun.

There are many wars in our hearts
We are ambushed by hatred,
Divorced voices, masked love, sinfully sacred,
We are killed for no cause
By people we fought with for a just cause,
Oh Africa, kills her sun.

They rape our smiles and stab us
They smile and frown at us,
But in their hearts evil lurks
As we watch man’s inhumanity to man,
Love has gone on sabbatical
Replaced by machetes and guns…
Oh Africa, kills her sun.

South African’s, you have lost your self – esteem
You kill Nigerians because we kill ourselves
Because our leaders are blind to realities
Because we don’t love ourselves,
You desecrate your land with the blood of strangers
Leave our country, you scream!
But your insanity flows like a stream…
Oh Africa kills her sun.

Oh Africa!
Why? When have we become renegades to ourselves?
Where is the unity and love we canvas?
Why are we killing our brothers and sisters?
South Africa, you have given us hell in paradise
You have wiped our faces with malice…
A minute silence, for our hearts are heavy with tears.
