Snura’s ‘majanga’

When I finally get to start on the Swahili & lyrics segment that’s long overdue,  this tune will definitely be one of the first ones I’ll cover.  It was so popular here in TZ last year (it still is actually) and until now people still refer to the word majanga when things aren’t so good. Majanga is a Swahili word meaningdifficulties, troubles, calamities etc (sing. janga-M-MI class).  So for instance I once asked a friend, “what’s going on you are so lost nowadays?” And her reply was “majanga tu”  as in things aren’t so good, one problem after another.

This one’s for the month ender and here’s hoping the new month will be a majangaless one for all of you!

Happy new month 🙂
