2015 Accra. Apam. »Diversity«

# no matter where you’re from
Uuu wei oh // Uuu wei oh
# verse: The sun comes out in the morning // The moon is out at night // They’re both very different // But we need them both to survive // Your smile gives energy like the breeze on the desert // When you dance let your heart fly free

#chorus: No matter where you’re from // No matter where  you’re at // Just take my hand // let’s do this right now

#rap: We’re a family // Like the bark of a tree // We live in harmony // Build the chemistry No matter what we’re going through // let’s give the best of we // Meness gɔ fi strike stones them no go fire we // See our category heavyweight // See out hearts beat as one // E dey accelerate // When we step in the game we dey elevate // We go fi extend our fire we dey procreate

#chorus: No matter where you’re from // No matter where
you‘re at // Just take my hand // let’s do this right now

#verse: How can l live in this cold world // when everything  around me looks confused, // families  separated  here and there. // There’s no place for me.

#spokenword: Woke up in the morning // Couldn’t see no one but me // Then I fell asleep
And I met u in my dreams
#verse: Ich bin Feuer // Du bist Wind // Wir sind nicht gleich
Aber wir kriegen es hin.

#verse: 2x Halt mich fest // Flow like water // unity we breath // halt mich fest
heartbeats connects in the heat
we survive

#Hallelujah
#verse:  I listen to the preacher man // You bow before the trees // What makes yours different from mine // Prove to me yours is divine

#chorus: Halleluyah
Halleluyah, Allahu Akbar,
We’re together // Together we’re one

#What is this unity // Cos I see no equality // I commit to non comformity // Will I ever one day be free //

#Should we try to hide our faces // In order to fit in // Being different is what defines us // Hate is easier than love

#Rap (Nick): Mi ye obrouni, wo yɔ bibini // I don’t want see no inequality // No difference dey between you and me // So make we dey for one community // Together we go chill freely (yeah) // If you no like, come see me (yeah) // Nick on the mic, one two three // Now put your hands up for my man Melih

#Rap (Melih): Talkin bout equality, lets talk free // why is it ok for you but forbidden for me // see, when we use the same phrase to deliver the fact but you dont even think about how or what it’ll effect But when the same word // leaves my mouth and reaches your ear // your whole mood changes and now I have to clear // the whole situation so you dont get offended // let’s go back to the fact that we are equal and stay there //

#chorus: Halleluyah
Halleluyah, Allahu Akbar,
We’re together // Together we’re one

What is this unity // Cos I see no equality // I commit to non comformity // Will I ever one day be free?

#all music medley
#whooooooooo ooo oo oooo (Teya and Samera)

#rap: Life, Hustle, Struggle
I’m thankful for the life I live
Lord knows I’m thankful for the life he gave // Try not to intimidate the light of day
Cus I know everything’s  gonna be okay // It’s the fire that extinguishs us // It’s the rain from the sky that delivers us //

#Heya (Evelyn and Seyram)
Heya!, heya // Heya, heya
I want you to see me // As your brother // Just the way I see you as my sister
Heya!, heya // Heya, heya
You see, our differences is what defines us // The need to get together will make us stronger // Heya!, heya // Heya, heya

#spoken word (Karl): We only look different to the shallow // But deep within we share the same marrow // So we need not hide behind bows and
arrows // When you and I can live together before tomorrow
For right here this year till next year // Lets be there and show we care // For all far and too near // And trust me without fear for greatness beyond who we were // I swear

#Rap (Melih): Let me see your hands rise in the air like a phoenix // Give me all the love that you got for Ghana‚ cuz  I need it // We started as  strangers but grew into a
family // Ghana and Germany, standing like a unity // Let the energy flow from all the way back, to the front, // up on the stage and give me all you have // Thank God for this day, the opportunity we got //  You get it once in your life you either grab it or not // And we did, standing here for you is a honour // Sharing the stage with great artists like my bro-ther // Two days ago he was a stranger to me //  But today we enjoy our diversity //  So when I say „cho“ // You say „bue“

#Yeye nnipa baako.
(Dariya and Yaa Yaa)

Se me to mɛani a.
Hwan na menk) ne h) ooo.
Agye se wo aaa.
Yeye nnipa baako
#Gbele ni ma ya.
Oh oh Gbele ni ma ya.
Oh oh Gbele ni ma ya

#source of knowledge
#verse: Source of knowledge
Pride and courage // You are magnetic // You are dynamic
Never retire // Never expire
We seem so different // Yet we are one

#chorus: I speak of hope and assurance // I speak of future and change // Hope is what has brought us here // And to believe that our destiny // will not be written for us but by us

#rap: You can be short // I can be tall // You can be Ga // I can be Dutch // We can be something // But I bet you // We share the same air, the same water // 4x We share that single sun //

#chorus: I speak of hope and assurance // I speak of future and change // Hope is what has brought us here // And to believe that our destiny // will not be written for us but by us
