What has happened to our nation?
It’s as if it’s migration
Running from here to there
Flying from there to here
Blacks and whites don’t get along
And that’s very wrong
Fighting from side to side
But for what reason?
An empty vessel makes a huge noise
Prevention is better than a cure
So please my fellow Africans
Stop fighting
Fighting will lead you nowhere
It’ll only lead you to death
Only lead you to fail
Only lead to death beds
Just go and open the door
The door of talking about things without fighting
Stop fighting over small things
Please fellow Africans
Be united
Unity is the key to success
