about

I designed this to be the opening track of the album because of the current state of relations between China & Africa...in Ghana a lot of Chinese nationals mine for gold illegally & fish illegally destroying Ghanaian lands & livelihoods.

The track was produced by my favourite producer/scientist Nasei Mainoo aka Kweku Ananse. Though the african drums & asian strings work well together creating funky harmony, the reality is many current afro-asian deals are producing funky smells.

I brought up this concern 10yrs ago on "Chinese Kokonte" (also produced by Kweku Ananse) off my debut album "Green Card". Kweku Ananse's wife is Asian btw and they have a beautiful family.

"Go Wei Yu" sounds like a Chinese name but is "Go Away You" which is Pidgen for "get the fuck outta here"

lyrics

Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!
Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!

The French I learn all be Cos90
Like I know I watch more Kung-Fu fighting
Then I never know say
One day
I go c Chinese dey make kokonte
Now dem dey sell duade for Kokompe
Wey dema kiddies master ampe
Dem get double barrel, plus AK
So shun yor kafungbe n klante
Illegally legal, tnx to stupid government
Dashing dem land
We no fit to pay wana rent
Carpenter turn trader dey sell China chairs
The roads dey build already dey hia repairs

Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!
Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!

Dey no dey respect we coz dey get we cheap
Like dema goods
E be we naa do
Dunkwa turn Chinatown go den see
Dem dey fish illegally for wana sea
Double trawling, but dey bribe the Coast Guard
If u go swim for Offin or Pra u lose guard
The way dem dey pollute wana rivers dier stop
Precious trees 4 wana forest dem just dey chop
Infiltrate the economy & social structure
Now dey sell we momoni plus dema culture
Rubber rice plastic cabbage horticulture
China chofi u r choppin is a pete vulture

Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!
Africaman
Who be you?
Chinese man I work for you
Then u will call me Shifu
Call you who?!
Goway you!
