Ndingu Ntsika Baleka,
A Gcaleka from the eastern of southern Afrika.
Isizukulwane sika Ngqika.
I was raised and taught humanity, unity and solidarity by the majority.
Born with leadership skills, set from generation to generation of our African forefathers,
Great grandfathers, Our kings and from our God, uQamata.
I am an African
Born within the bushes, carves, mountains, my feet and skin can tell.
Ndingum Afrika, waseMzantsi Afrika.
A believer in our tradition, our African ways,
And in the power of our witch doctors, kings and ancestors who connect us with our God.
