Read Time:58 Second [Awelewa]

You must find Aduke
Awelewa of concrete soul
Bold, black
Beautiful from head to toe

In the hungry sun
That beats and burns
She surfaces and shines
I had to hide my face

Ajani, I pray you see
This princess of the sea
Aduke is the daughter of the forest
The queen of turbid wind

I love her, Ajani,
Talk to her for me, deliver my letter
I’m in the midst of hunting thoughts
That cause my nights to evade the reign of moons

Ajani, Awelewa should marry me,
Don’t you think so too?
Her legs are straight, the way she walks –
Stirs my tummy to pleasure

Tell Awelewa for me
Tell her I wait for a reply
Tell her of my shyness
Of my riches, fame and boldness

Tell of my love, lust
Tell of my name too
Tell Aduke, Awelewa
I want her to bear my child
