Does anyone know the literal translation to the following lyrics?
O safa, saphel’ isizw’ esimnyama
O safa isizwe sabantsundu
Anitshelen’ inkokheli zethu zisilamulele kuloludaba
I believe it’s Zulu, but I can’t be sure and I found a rough translation online, but I was hoping to get a second opinion. They’re lyrics to a song in Sarafina!, a phenomenal musical & movie about a young girl in apartheid-era Soweto, South Africa.
Can anyone help me please?
looking forward to this weekend! finally checking out nora chipaumire’s film on friday. then hitting up the performances and the bazaar on sunday afternoon. expecting to pick up something dope for my mama’s birthday next week. anyone else heading out this weekend?
