Atewa For Rest ft. Sister Deborah & Akosua Hanson

from White Card: The Artivist by Wanlov The Kubolor



Ghanain president Akufo Addo has sold the most important forest in West Africa to the Chinese to mine for bauxite. This is nothing short of disastrous.


If I asked you to let me harvest your lungs for some gold would you do it?

Common sense tells me that you won’t

So why are you letting them harvest the forests?

You do know that trees are our primary lungs right?


Common sense
No be common
To a common fool
U dey cut down
Trees den complain
Say weather no cool
Oxygen make tight
Not right
Sell wana birthright
For bauxite
No hope in sight
Trees in fright
Here comes blight
Fit see am from satelite
Earth set alight
President say mek we get a life
E no b funny how moni dey change situation
B4 e chop post e get different position
Wana mission?
Cease all emissions
Retro wishing no go save we from earth's retribution

We for save atiwa forest
Or we go die

If u save me
I will save u

For every dirty tree killing
Plant 33 seedlings
The forests need healing
Mine into yor feelings
Not the ground
Sounds profound
Pound for pound
The best all round
Mound of hound
And for the right amount
Deliver dem tied and bound
Dey jus wan fly n lounge
Expensive drinks get downed
Dey loosing track n count
Dey oozing stacked accounts
Voters get whack recounts
Evergreen burning brown
