Oh! Dear African child
You are beautiful
The society has failed us
It made us hate ourselves
It manipulated us to believe that we look ugly,
‘Cause of our skin colour.

Oh! Dear African child
It is a pity that we were never told to love ourselves
To accept who we are
We grew up under the rainbow nation

African child! You are beautiful
Your skin colour is beautiful
We are the melanin
Black is beautiful
It is expensive like coal
