Burna Boy ft. M.anifest - Another Story Lyrics

[Prelude]

To understand Nigeria, you need to appreciate where it came from

Narrator: In 1900, Britain officially assumed responsibility for the administration of the whole of what we now know as Nigeria from the Niger Company

And then, gradually over the years, British protectorates were established throughout the territory

In 1914, the protectorates were amalgamated into one Nigeria

Actually, there’s one additional detail that bears mentioning

In order to take over the territories from the Niger Company, the British Government paid 865,000 pounds

A huge amount in 1900

So let’s establish a simple truth, the British didn’t travel halfway across the world just to spread democracy

Nigeria started off as a business deal for them, between a company and a government

Incidentally, the Niger Company is still around today

Only it is known by a different name, Unilever

But that’s another story

It’s Kel-P vibes

[Verse 2: M.anifest]

Which kind country be this, chale I conf..

Sometimes I for dey move away, maybe a month

More or less, more yawa

Less people power

Same shit, Ghana - Naija, man tire

Stuck in traffic I dey hate delay

Big man get the motorcade, big Benz and the Escalade

Hustle just dey escalate

But March 6, we go celebrate (Shh!)

Every year, we dey sing cock and bull

Propaganda you dey push no dey go

E dey pain, people tire for this matter

Everyday for thief man, one day for master

“Efie ne fie”, me ntumi ‘nfamu

?man no s?i aa, y?n nyinaa y? ti mu

Ashi me aa, ashi me aa, ashi me aa

‘Nso me ntumi ‘nfamu
