TEXT
Ha! eh ha, ponponji. (Gibberish)
mi o gbo (I can’t hear you) ponponji, na so (That’s it).
We ‘bout to spread a mentally transmitted disease, caused by the invasion of the other colour/race, with the sole purpose of neutralising the subject in person of the other-race, and make him feel inferior so much that he starts to believe in his own flaws.

Ati njaye Ko’yinbo to de, Oyinbo de tan Aye di Jakujaku, (Mi gbo)
Ati njaye Ko’yinbo to de ,Oyinbo lo tan aye di rudurudu
Ati njaye Ko’yinbo to de,Oyinbo de tan Oju se monamona
Ati njaye Ko’Yinbo to de,Oyinbo lo tan Aye di rederede

“We’ve been balling before the western invasion; they brought confusion.
We've been balling before the western invasion; they left with chaos in their wake.
We've been balling before the western invasion; they brought perdition.
We've been balling before the western invasion; they left with destruction in their wake”

“First stage, invade its land, slowly, painlessly, non itchy, just some sore, in other words, appear to be friendly, use religion for that one, you can subtly penetrate his mind for a long period with little or no symptom now let us pray”

Solo “second stage, insist on the importance of your culture, (yes Victor) religion can do that one, get more people on your side, study the subjects religion, culture, clear its mind, in fact , you know what, you can exchange something take the land, ponponji (Gibberish), make him sign away the place, divide and conquer, civilisation ni yen (that is it ).
Christianity is the ingredient of the hegemonic European world view, imposed upon its converts, African agency is the transnational network, that has shaped the history of modern world. “
Take it away

Syphiliesation.. e sinmi e do

Listen to me now
Listen to me now
Listen to me now
Teti ko gbo mi Ore “Listen to me my friend “
White man say make I close my eyes to pray (Amen)
But before I open my eye I get bible he get land (Amen)
Arab man say make I close my eyes to pray (Amen)
But when I open my eyes he get land I get Koran (Amen)
You go to America, Dem dey teach dem History
Go to Germany, Dem dey teach dem History
African man no want know him history
He dey think say shango na real devil
e dey think say Oya she dey diabolical
We talk oyinbo pass english man
we talk Germany pass Germany man
We go learn dem culture, throw we own for gutter
we go learn dem dressing throw our own for shalanga
Ati njaye K’oyinbo tode
Ati njaye K’oyinbo tode
”We've been balling before the western invasion”
On’yunmi o, o’ntami jare, O’nyunmi oo “I am infirmed”
Ebami wa doctor to gbona.
”please get me a tested and trusted physician"

chrs ….

Before oyinbo man come my land, I dey love my brother
Before Oyinbo come dabaru (destroyed) the whole thing, I dey think further

I no get Agriculture but food boku (plenty) well well well
I no get democracy, but my people no dey craze
He come share me for Berlin, I come forget who I be.
I don syhphilicate patapata (completely)
Na so… when I dey pray, Oyinbo man dey prey
Shyphiliezation
On’yunmi o, o’ntami jare, O’nyunmi oo
