The Chief

Nana Ahwew VII - Tufuhen of Abra Wiomoah - Abrah State - Central Region - Ghana
Fontomfrom, Fontomfrom
Nana oreba ooo Nana oreba ooo
The king sat on his throne
looked around at all that was his home
heavy is the head that wears the crown
the weight on the shoulders will wear him down
the spirit of the ancestors are with him
but he has to bring the spirit from within
to help in his rule
and protect his stool
and win the hearts and support of the people around
Nana tinase, Nana bre bre Nana bre bre
kete- kete- kete- pan

Mini Mini Shoe Market

The sun was bright
It was hot and sticky
Market traders were out
Customers being picky
Suddenly in front of me
Fantastic colours appeared
Dazzling my eyes
I saw the trader whose
The road side shop was
Full of multi coloured shoes


Silver from Ghana
