In Ghana ft Kwabena Jones

lyrics

Step off the plane
Kotoka airport Accra
soccer is our favorite sport
aha!
there go the caddies
here take ma bag to the taxi
I’m in Ghana men
tune from Ranks Shabba and Priest Maxi
it's shaygaylaygay with the Reggae
eating abele and groundnuts
some ice kenkey or abebe
doesn't even sounds nuts
here
smiles are free
they are not by force
they are not fake
we have a lot of peace officers
and very few jakes
cool sea breeze
very bearable weather
when we say it's our pleasure
we really mean it's our pleasure
wildlife diverse cultures
exotic fruit
ntama and ahenema
or show and political suit
some of us are so rich
some of us are so poor
if you test our limits
you'll hear
onyaye sorrrr
if she did her job well u won't hear it
if u don't respect a threat
at least u must fear it
turn on the radio
th4kwages or Rockstone
give me some Obrafuor Tinny V.I.P
& am in da zone
better yet give me some Ambolley
give me some Osibisa
TV Dr.Rokoto Mc'Jordan Idikoko
proverbs r used we respect our elders
we don't waste
first thing in the morning
after praying toothpaste
wash your face do your chores
use a sponge to bath
just a soap and small towel
aren't enough so don't laugh
night life? don't test yo
we've got clubs
down here we have stunners too
so we've got dubs
don't b surprised if u see superstars
in the disco
Wanlov can dance and it's not b'coz
I went to Adisco
big up all ma cape posses
Toady posse Tema posse
Kumasi posses
hey!!!!! but catch me in Accra
buying pure water at Achimota
chale
there's so much to see
wild animals from desert to bush to sea
the best beer
if u drink too much
don't cross the gutter
never scared
but I was a strong phobia supporter
extended families living together
in 1 compound
when we speak it's not digital
but it's surround sound
out of 1 love
we all eat out of 1 bowl
world cup everybody runs outside
when Ghana scores goal!!!!
home of Kwame Nkrumah & Nelson Azuma
no gun crimes no wars
but watch for Ike's bazooka
Mutabaruka was here
will smith was here
Clinton was here
public enemy was here
Shabba was here
to be fair sport
I’ll just cut da list short
wanna meet me at prisons
bring a b-ball or no court
kenkey banku fufu
waakye check-check chofi
top it off with some bluna tropic
asaana or poki
Bobo Shantis in Kumasi
that's our Adis Ababa
I know your next move
so welcome
and that's akwaaba!
