Akon Senegal Lyrics

Last updated: 01/27/2013 01:59:57 PM


[INTRO: Akon Talking]

Yo. In case you ain't know, I go by the name of Akon...and I'm from (Africa! Africa!)
Home of the Goree Islands - I'm from Senegal, West-side (Africa! Africa!)
So I'ma share with you where I'm from and how I was comin' up (Africa! Africa!)

[Verse 1]

So what you know about the struggles that my people went through so you can live the way you live now
So what you know about seeing that brand new mother givin away her newborn child
So what you know about Mr.Amadou diallo, a Senegalese, cops shot down
So what you know about how people love to perceive us when we come into a brand new town
So what you know about the Goree Island, where all the slaves were shipped from
So what you know about being born in America to avoid immigration


Still from the ghetto ooohh of Senegal (Africa!Africa!)
Comin' from the ghetto ooohh of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)
Comin' from the ghetto ooohh of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)
Yes, I'm comin' from the ghetto ooohh of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)

[Verse 2]

So what you know about Thienboudienne,Yassa, Tcherey and Maafey, my favourite foods
So what you know about niggas throwin rocks, bustin' shots at the military invadin my hood
So what you know about kids with automatic machines waiting for the war to get on that side
So what you know about how God comes first in our lives, everything that we do is for Allah
So what you know about that Holy place called Touba where Prophets were born
So what you know about comin here, gettin money and investing it back home


Right in the ghetto oooo of Senagal (Africa! Africa!)
Give it to the ghetto oooo of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)
Take it to the ghetto oooo of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)
Send it right to the ghetto ooo of Senegal (Africa! Africa!)

[OUTRO: Akon Talking]

Now see that's just a little piece of how it is (Africa! Africa!)
See, but we can come together and make it 'lot better back home (Af-ree-caa! Africa!)
So don't complain about how they treating you here, take your millions of dollars there, back to (Africa! Africa!)
We own that land, we own those diamonds, (Africa! Africa!)
We kings man, we dont take orders, we give em.
Think about it.

In life only your loved once believes you | Reviewer: Mukhtar nigerian | 11/2/12

Wit these few refrence i am fully contented dat akon is a muslim. As he said "everything we do is for ALLAH", so if you are a muslim you to Allah not anybody. If no one believes you and Allah do believe you it's fine.
We true aliuane fans should put dis in back of our mind you cannot be as famous as akon and be free from criticesment. All these things are burdens of life let carry them along and be strong. To prove to our enemies that there threat is nothing.

its not good to judge people | Reviewer: khady123 | 2/18/12

all of you that are making bad comments about akon. better back off right now. cause none of you have the nerve to say something bad about him because all of you made mistakes so before talking about him look at yourself again. cause you aint cute so dont put the blame on him and before judging people look at your face and judge that thing . so next time if i see anymore of theses stupid comment on this page my feast will be right in your face so dont think your perfect cause your not and nobodys perfect. and dont be jealous because akon is the best and is famous but your not. lol

He is muslim | Reviewer: Imad-Eddine | 10/28/10

Hi everybody
Im muslim and im a big fan of akon and i know a lot of things about him , so he is a muslim , i saw a video on youtube where he was Praying , and i saw an intervien on tv that he said " my religion Islam made for me a perfect persinality" and he said also "When GOD"ALLAH" solves your problems, You have faith in HIS Abilities ; When GOD doesn't solve your Problems he has faith in your Abilities." And everybody makes a host of mistakes and we know nothing what in his heart , finally he got a foundation for kids in africa(more information "zakat"). and Thank you and im sorry for my english (isn't good).

don`t say something if you don`t know or sure.. | Reviewer: sidy ahmed ndiaye | 5/20/10

hey guys.. i wanna thank you all for participating in this comments, it makes us to know the truth from lies.. i know Akon is a muslim was born muslim.. but i am not going to talk about that a lot.. i am answering those who keep laying to people.. where did you read or learn that Touba is Makka or Touba in Arabic means Makka this is lie my brother. i did all my studies in Arabic language that`s why i am not good at English. we can`t deney that thoses people who fond or creat Touba in Senegal are so great and did a lot to Islam. very knowlegable people they are.. but the people to day are using their names in a very very wrong way.. read well or be sure before you talk.. thanks you all..
