Track Name: Cheer up
Chorus
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the in a club they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get at the work place they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the game they cheer me up

Verse 1
To wish for a scene away is like looking for a green horse
My first love that I really adored,
Ooh my only virgin garden that I truly worked on
Moiled and toiled; slashed and cultivated.
A lot of water I sprinkled unto my seedlings
One of the trees grew and bears me a fruit
But I deeply regret because I never ate my fruit

Chorus
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the in a club they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get at the work place they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the game they cheer me up

Verse 2
Why did you my garden let a stranger make away with my fruit
For the stranger to begin and carry on cultivating my only garden
It’s a pity I have lost my earring but I still have ears in my ears
I searched for good fortunes elsewhere and I finally found something good
Its like I was in a high school but I have graduated to the university
Now the love is roaming because the other farmer is lazy
He is no longer taking care of the garden
But I’m sorry I can’t make it now as I’m very busy with my new love

Chorus
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the in a club they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get at the work place they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the game they cheer me up

Verse 3
Girl I know you can’t believe you’re my former
Living without my hot loving like electric transformer
All friends and foes are slandering you
You abandoned our love and swore never to love me
You now live in winter and I live in summer
To make up never again can I because with her I’m so happy,
She loves, understands and fulfill all my needs
(Chorus)
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the in a club they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get at the work place they cheer me up
I’m still the one you abandoned
When I get in the game they cheer me up
Track Name: Mr. Gwiji
Chorus
Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public
The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER.

Verse 1
Mr Gwiji was highly regarded with esteem and value in the society. He rapidly progressed in many aspects and especially financially. He drove luxurious cars and invested in real estate. Little did people know the source of all his wealth. “Ooh no MR GWIJI! You are a dubious character! Your wealth was not legitimately acquired.”

Chorus
Mr. Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public
The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER.

(Verse 2)
Your deadly drugs are so addictive that our youth’s lives have been badly ravaged. Some have been turned to zombies. Parents are in enormous grief each day over the lives of their children. They have sworn to deal with you harshly. There is little hope for a brighter future of their children. “Ooh no MR GWIJI! You are a dubious character! Your wealth was not legitimately acquired.”

Chorus
Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public
The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER.

Verse 3
We have finally caught you MR. GWIJI and therefore we are not going to leave not until you disclose your accomplices.
But whom shall we turn to?
Is it the Police?
or
The judiciary?

Chorus
Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public
The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER.

“MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER
“MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER

Chorus
How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?)
How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2

Verse 1
She is my beautiful girl whom we were so much in love. I adored her indeed,
It came a day that we parted ways through some unexplainable circumstances
After one year she re-appeared. She got into my house shedding tears
She didn’t hesitate to narrate her story of what turned out during the separation period
Adding that she indulged in decadent behaviours; changing men - one after another
Today she went to test her HIV/AIDS status only to learn that results were Positive
It’s so painful and tormenting but I swear to take care of her without stigmatization
where did you come from you deadly monster (HIV/AIDS) who has no cure
Chorus
How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?)
How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2

Verse 2
He was my uncle who was a beloved of many people and the whole family at large
It’s unbelievable that he is no more. Since he got sick he was mentally disturbed.
He turned skinny. He developed unending coughing.
We moved up and down and all over seeking for his medication
Unfortunately he is all gone; regrettably it was this deadly monster
where did you come from you deadly monster (HIV/AIDS) who has no cure
Chorus
How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?)
How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2

Verse 3
Extra marital affairs is dangerous (be faithful to your partner)
Please my friend it’s vital (to get tested and know your HIV status)
If you are already a victim (do not panic just have a proper diet)
Oh our heavenly father save us (and help us to stay away from extra marital affairs)

Chorus
How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?)
How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2

Even though I love you so much my babe tell me how I we going to survive!!!

Chorus
We have just met and known each other today today;
I gave in and you gave in,
I felt you and you felt me back
Hurriedly we have wedded in the club!!!

VERSE 1
It’s on a Friday after work I’m too thirsty for a refreshment
I call my pals and we make up to a city joint,
The club is fully jam packed with revelers
Please waiters serve two bottles each one of us,
I sip and glance on my left, then on my right
I see this beautiful girl staring at me;
I swear to myself she will be mine
I aspire that today it must work out.

Chorus
We have just met and known each other today;
I gave in and you gave in,
I felt you and you felt me back
Hurriedly we have wedding in the club!!!


VERSE 2
As bold and fearless like a lion I set out to the next table,
She looked at me and she smiled beautifully
“Have a seat.” She said to me and I started…
Girl you are gorgeous and wonderfully created
Your features make me go crazy
If you don’t mind please be my babe
“For real” yeah! ‘I like your height” she told me
And I replied “I like your eyes”
I called her queen and she called me king respectively
I said “yes’ and she said “YES! YES! YES!”
Its only today that we’ve met, yeah yeah and is only today ….

Chorus
We have just met and known each other today;
I gave in and you gave in,
I felt you and you felt me back
Hurriedly we have a wedding in the club!!!

VERSE 3
Undeniably no one can explain how things unfolded
There were lots of spontaneous kisses and roses
One of the revelers shouted “the two should marry now”
The whole club joined in shouting the same slogan “hurry, hurry and marry”
A wedding suit and gown, cakes and pilau rice no one knew how they became availble
Even a pastor the same, The AGs son (Attorney General) inside the house brought the certificates and we signed, wedding rings we exchanged.
was available and ready with a marriage certificate
“Yes I do!” We put on wedding rings and signed in the marriage Certificates

Chorus
We have just met and known each other today;
I gave in and you gave in,
I felt you and you felt me back
Hurriedly we have a wedding in the club!!!
Track Name: Mabaya yako
Chorus
I have ever since forgiven and forgotten all your faults
I recollect all the greatest things about you
I need you come back my angel

Verse 1
I humbly request for your forgiveness my most revered girl
I have now recognized where I went wrong
I listened to their ill advice and irrationally concluded over everything
Making me translate your little mistakes to enormous ones
I acted angrily and behaved weird to shout at you
You even didn’t have time to express yourself dear
I now declare that I did a big mistake
I’m indeed begging for your forgiveness
I promise never to repeat my mistakes anymore
I regret this as anger is not the fine way at all

Chorus
I have ever since forgiven and forgotten all your faults
I recollect all the greatest things about you
I need you come back my angel

Verse 2
You left a very big gap in my heart since we parted ways babe lover
Please have a tender feeling towards my appeal
There is no other who can fill this gap dear
I have indeed tried before but all others have proved inability
I’m down on my knees please don’t be difficult anymore
You hold my life and therefore give me a second chance
I promise we are going to go places and henceforth, our love will shine forever.

Chorus
I have ever since forgiven and forgotten all your faults
I recollect all the greatest things about you
I need you come back my angel

Verse 3
I’m so sorry maa, I’m so sorry maa, and I’m so sorry maa
I’m desperate for your love my belle
You should worry no more as I got real love for you
Please have mercy on me as I can barely eat anything hence so slender
I’m crying in pain because of your love
I have already decreed that I wronged you and I’m sorry
Forget all the haters and we are going to live happily
This song is dedicated to you come back home maa

Chorus
I have ever since forgiven and forgotten all your faults
I recollect all the greatest things about you
I need you come back my angel
Samtaar! Babkubwa! Sadakta!!
Track Name: My crew
Chorus
Toughen me God so that I can come up with hard lyrics
To enable me wrestle this thick guy
In a bid to battle for my gal

Verse1
Oooh my crew kindly listen to my story
Though I live in a S.Q (Servant Quarter)
I have discovered that my girl has kind of low I.Q
If a man comes her way she lacks the will to Say ‘No’
Many are times I have clashed with guys over her
But she persists to love me more than well cooked meat
Ooh my crew ooh my crew

Chorus
Toughen me God so that I can come up with hard lyrics
To enable me wrestle this thick guy
In a bid to battle for my gal

Verse2
Ooh my ooh my crew
There is a game that is being played
It’s quite a dangerous card game
The mother of the belle is working against me
She is soliciting for money from the thick guy
The thick guy has indeed bribed the mother to win my girl
I hear the wedding has even been planned
I’m afraid I don’t have the means to oppose it
This is due to my financially slim position
I’m being deserted
Ooh my crew ooh my crew

Chorus
Toughen me God so that I can come up with hard lyrics
To enable me wrestle this thick guy
In a bid to battle for my gal

Verse3
Someone was invited by the thick guy
Negotiations done in the dark at around 12 midnights
How they dressed was shocking
Hot pants were down and there were not in their shirts
Gal, how comes you are gambling with life
And pretending that this is the way of life
I have never slept in his house neither has he ever fed me
I’m so strong and won’t be intimidated
Even though you received money, it’s soon coming to an end
Nothing that lasts forever in this world
And that’s the way it is!
Samtaar take it over and tie up the song…

Chorus
Toughen me God so that I can come up with hard lyrics
To enable me wrestle this thick guy
In a bid to battle for my gal
Track Name: Samtaar ft Magic Krystals - Kiwaru
Chorus
My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl!
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie

Verse 1
It was on a Saturday when I saw you walking alongside your mother each carrying a kiondo (an African hand woven handbag)
I was busy in my father’s garden cutting nappier grass for his cattle
I stared at you until you went out of my eyesight
I was itched by stinging nettle and accidentally chopped off my finger.

Chorus
My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl!
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie

Verse 2
I would hide in the bush and wait till late. I would then watch you going to the river to fetch water in your African pot
Mosquitoes would bite me severely and would at time persevere the heavy rains.
But I am so privileged that I found you my love
I want to marry you and be my loving wife
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie

Chorus
My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl!
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie

Verse 3
Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so disturbed
Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so disturbed
Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so jealous
Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so jealous
I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru,
(kiwaru is a Kikuyu word which means a big potatoe. It’s used to express great pain whereby one feels as if there is a big item in your throat).

Chorus
My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl!
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie

My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie
My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie
I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru,
