A friend of mine found the lyrics to "malaika" here and they are hillariously wrong!!! How did they manage to do this??? My favorite line is.... "nassin dwala mali sinawy"...made my day!!

Check out:

"na me nee sen yeh yeh
nekka na mum see oh"

which we all know should read (I think):

"nami nifanyeje
kijana mwenzio"

Lyrics absolutely butchered!

Even if you say that slowly, twenging, on weed, after hammering 5 shots of chamm and sitting out in the sun for too long, it doesn't sound ANYWHERE close!

Deadly post lakini!

Though reading thru those lyrics ina sum boura rohoyangoo

Do you NOT know that is the LANGA of LANGA's in songs. It has been sang by even Boney M, Kidjo, Makeba, sijui who, even a German band.

So am not surprised. At least you know the original lyric's. Fadhili Williams the man, RIP brotha.

All lyrics provided for "mis"education purposes especially for those learning swahili.

that just looks like gibberish. what's even sadder is that there is someone out there singing along to malaika with those lyrics as their guide and patting themselves on the back thinking that they've learnt some kiswahili! LOL!
