about

This is the first song I recorded at TJ Records. We recorded the same night I met Nerio and the guys in the street. I had been in Gulu, Uganda for only two nights and so a lot of the lyrics I'm spewing out are the names of things I picked up as a visitor. "Boda boda" is a motorycycle taxi. "Rolex" is the name of a local street food. "Diana Gardens" is the nightclub that I was at the night before. LMG Silver's Lugandan lyrics are about giving me a baby.

At the top of Uganda,
A place called Gulu,
People are friendly,
Don’t let history fool you.

At Diana Gardens,
Party’s going down,
Last Friday of the Night
Tusker Pilsner passed round.

Roosters will awake you
Cock-a-doodle-doo!
At night we eat pork
It’s roasted not stewed.

Boys making Chapas under the stars
Producer Nerio Make Music Always Going Hard!
