about

“Forgive Them Oh God Amin - Amin”—part dance track, part prayer—strikes Waziri’s signature balance of folk styles, highlife and pop to create a sublime vehicle for his Islamic philosophy. Get lost in the groove as he entreats you to stay on the straight and narrow (though there’s nothing straight about this beat).

lyrics

For those gossipers,
the Almighty God,
Creator of Heaven and Earth,
forgive them for they know not what they have done.

For those practitioners,
those that go out to gossip their neighbors,
God forgive them,
for they know not what they have done.

You that God has created,
why do you forsake
other important things,
and gossip about other people?

Do you forget that when you point one bad finger at someone
Other four fingers are pointed back at you?

Oh God please forgive them,
for they do not know what they are doing.

Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
[Continued]

I am praying, please God forgive them,
God please do not let me be enticed
with the wealth of another man.

Oh God, please do not let me be enticed
with another man’s children and property.
God please hear my song.

This is the message you have asked me to deliver.
Please hear my cry, oh God.

Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
[Continued]

For those gossipers, Lord God,
forgive them for they know not what they have done.
(Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin)

Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
[Continued]

Forgive them for they know not what they have done.
(Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin)

Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
[Continued]

Forgive them, Almighty God,
for they know not what they have done.
(Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin)

Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
Amin-Amin-tseyo Amin
