“AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY”
by Ahmed Sirour

[TV intro excerpt]

[Verse 1]
You’re ignorance is no excuse,
you have a map but don’t see.
(no, no)
It has 54 nations,
but many think it can’t be.
(no, no)
We’re in the 21st millennium,
so this is so silly.
(no, no)
Africa’s a continent,
it is not a country
(no, no)

[Hook]
AFRICA, FOREVER, SANKOFA, AFRICA!

[Verse 2]
Do they downplay Africa in our history?
(yes, yes)
If you erase Africa do you erase humanity?
(yes, yes)
Because of us is why there is even society.
(yes, yes)
We are the beginning and the ending you will see.
(yes, yes)

[Hook]
AFRICA…FOREVER…SANKOFA…AFRICA!

FOREVER…SANKOFA…AFRICA!

AFRICA…FOREVER…SANKOFA…AFRICA!
