THIS IS OUR TIME:
Beggar nations, He said,
Beggar leaders, He said,
Mass suffering, she said,
Wars, poverty, terror, fear, rapes...
Africa your time has come.
The time when your shame, humiliation to end,
The time when selfishness, division, insecurity to end,
The time of irresponsibility to end.
Your time to shine is now.
Your time to hope is now.
Your time of success is now.
Who said:'' you are poor?''
When full of gold, silver, diamond, land, wealth, wisdom, ideas, ...
When full of genius, green nature, best brains, best climate, best weather...
Who said, you've no potentials?
What's about the billionaire Mo Ibrahim?
What's about the heroes Nelson Mandela, Dr Mukwege...?
Who said you are not educated for peace and security?
What's about the honourable Kofi Annan?
Who said you have no leaders?
What's about Dr Enock Adeboye, Dr Matthew Ashimolowo...?
Who said you are a disaster, a liability to humanity?
You are the Mother of Humanity.
Who said you're full of whiners, complainers, miserable faces?
When you work very hard for your children,
It's time for Harvest.
Africa full of beauty queens,
Africa celebrate virginity and marriage,
Africa respect, honour the elderly,
Africa full of discipline, integrity, social life,
Africa full of joy and smiles.
They say, you are 100 years behind,
I say, you see 100 years ahead.
When your sons and daughters will look back,
They will say, look what our parents have built.
They will say, our parents said:
''United we will stand, divided we will fall.''
Our power is in our diversity,
Diversity of ideas, languages, and ethnics groups...
They will say, we remember them.
When everybody lost hope,
They cried, there is hope.
When everybody spoke of failure,
They shout Success we believe in.
Africa, I am in love with you.
Africa, I am proud to be African.
Africa, I love my fellow Africans.
Africa, I am not scared to die for you.
Hear me Death; I am not scared of you.
Hear me Threats; I am not scared of you.
Hear me Trouble; I am not scared of you.
Nothing can stop me now.
You'll succeed, you'll shine, and you'll stand.
And everybody will know, you are a shining star.
This is our time,
The time to unite as one.
The time to love our brothers and sisters.
The time of actions not speeches.
This is our opportunity to build,
Our hope, victory, glory, success,
The walls of disunity, division must fall.
The walls of fear must fall.
The walls of destruction, distraction must fall.
The walls of shame, poverty, diseases, and wars must fall.
I see 100 years ahead,
I see African glory,
I see African Success,
I see African solving global issues.
No enemy can divide you now,
No weapons can destroy you now,
You will change your way of thinking,
You will change your way of acting,
You will change your way of seeing.
I see a millionaire in every African home,
I see a billionaire in every African nation,
I see them helping their society and nation.
This is your time to take positive actions.
This is your time to stop negative actions.
This is our time.
With the help of God, Success we believe in.
