Lyrics & Translation: Yehlisan’ Umoya ma-Afrika (Busi Mhlongo)

Yehlisan’ Umoya ma-Afrika
Busi Mhlongo

Yehlisan’ umoya
Bantu bakithi

Ngoba kade madoda
Sibulalana sodwa

Washonaph’unembeza
Sibulalana sodwa

Yehlisan’ umoya ma-Afrika,
Kade sibulalana sodwa

(Isiqaqa lesi, isiqaqa…)

Full grammar
[English Translation]

Yehlisan’ umoya
[Calm down (literal: ‘lower your spirits’)]
Bantu bakithi
[My people (lit.: ‘people of our land’)]

Ngoba kade madoda
[Because for so long, guys]
Sibulalana sodwa
[We have been killing ourselves]

Washonaph’unembeza
[Where has our conscience gone?]
Sibulalana sodwa
[We are killing ourselves]

Yehlisan’ umoya ma-Afrika,
[Calm down people of Africa]
Kade sibulalana sodwa
[For so long we’ve been killing ourselves]

(Isiqaqa lesi, isiqaqa…)
