Music for the soul Lyrics by Gilad

MUSIC FOR THE SOUL We make music for the soul
Music for the soul, my soul
Music for the soul
Its born in Africa

VERSE 1 What if life is more than what you were made to believe
Keep praying
Life is more than what you were made to believe Beautiful people lift your eyes off the floor
This is how we do it in the 2 5 4,
Our music comes from inside and we've got nothing to hide
We say what we wanna say,
With a little swa makes it sound better
We make life a journey, we keep praying Beautiful people put your hands in the air, it doesn’t matter if life isn't fair
We’ve all got deamons inside
We’ve all got something to hide,
So say what you wanna say
With a little love it will sound better
Make life a journey, and keep praying
Keep praying, keep praying Just keep praying Chorus Music for the soul, born in Africa
Music for the soul, It’s in the air we breathe
Music for the soul, Life is more than what you were made to believe Music for the soul, born in Africa
Music for the soul, It…

Mapenzi Lyrics- Gilad

Verse 1
Mapenzi Ooh
When you give love you get love
Nimekua nikiuliza,Mungu wangu nitaenda wapi
Nikakutana na watu wengi,
Nikawauliza nitaenda wapi
Wakanifunza hivi, wakanifunza hivi

Si unachofanya, ni ufanyavyo
Sio unachosema, ni usemavyo
And you, ukipeana mapenzi
And you, utapokea

 Chorus
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love

Verse 2

Nilienda pwani nilienda, kila mashinani nilienda
Nikakutana na watu wengi
Nikawauliza nitaenda wapi, wakanifunza hivi
Wakanifunza hivi,

Si unacho fanya, ni ufanyavyo
Sio unachosema, ni usemavyo
And you, ukipeana mapenzi
And you, utapokea

Chorus
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love

Mapenzi yeah, mapenzi yeah
When you give love you get love
Mapenzi yeah, mapenzi yeah

Intro
Asante kwa chakula, bless the hands
that made this food
Asante kwa chakula, God is good
Asante for the roof above my head
Asante for my Family
Asante for the work that gives me bread
Asante for loving me
Gilad
Asante kwa chakula, Yeah
Like a blessing from above
Asante kwa chakula, God is love
Asante for the sunshine on my face
Asante for every breath I'm taking
Asante for so many moments of Grace
Asante for those who love me
Asanti Mungu, nashukuru, kwani niko huru
Asanti Mungu, nashukuru, kwani niko huru
Nasema asante
Jina lako kwa masikio ya hawakutambui
nikisifu
Cha kusema sijui,
Nikikosa any, nina tele, nikiwa na wewe
Nina kila sababu
Neema yako inaniamsha
si alarm ama kuku si haram ukweli tupu si vegetarian tu, wanajua
Unatosha mboga.
Roho nje ya chest
Nikiwa less, mkono vest unanipa hand
Kushiba shida njaa shida
Naomba nitosheke na ulonipa
nikifunga eyelids nakuona in my dream
Reality na ulicho niahidi
wembe thin
Iwe mkono katikati ya lips
Mfuko kando ya hips
Nikos…

Kenyan Media vs Kenyan Music

Image
I am writing this article as a great fan of Kenyan music and Kenyan musicians. There is a lot of great music being made in the country and a great improvement has been seen this year especially in terms of content. I would love to commend;
 MDQ's Squad
 Timmy Dat
 Dufla
 Gilad
 Sauti Sol
 H_Art The Band
 Naiboi
 Dela
 Eko Dydda
 Le Band
 Sanaipei

To me, these are artists who have gone out of their way this year. They did international collabos, great quality videos, performing show after show and just making sure they have remained relevant, it is not easy.
Though, I feel like the media in Kenya is really pulling these musicians behind.  They channel their energies in the wrong direction. They feel like a gossip story is better than a real story. Let us take an example of Khaligraph, he has worked so hard this year, chucking hit after hit, but all these almost went down  the drain with one story about him Bleaching. Really guys?! How is this even an issue?
