Malaika

I was watching FIFA World Cup Kick-Off celebration Concert in South Africa at ESPN web site. I really liked this song "Malaika".  A quick Google search told me that Kenyan musician Fadhili Williams wrote the song. And this web site gave me the following lyrics with English translation.

MalaikaAngel
Malaika, nakupenda Malaika.Angel, I love you Angel.
Malaika, nakupenda Malaika.Angel, I love you Angel.
Nami nifanyeje, kijana mwenzio,And I, your young lover, what can I do.
Nashindwa na mali sina, we,Was I not defeated by the lack of fortune,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you Angel.
Nashindwa na mali sina, we,Was I not defeated by the lack of fortune,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you Angel.
Pesa zasumbua roho yanguMoney is troubling my soul
Pesa zasumbua roho yanguMoney is troubling my soul
Nami nifanyeje, kijana mwenzio,And I, your young lover, what can I do,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you angel.
Nashindwa na mali sina, we,Was I not defeated by the lack of fortune,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you Angel.
Kidege, hukuwaza kidege.Little bird, I dream of you little bird.
Kidege, hukuwaza kidege.Little bird, I dream of you little bird.
Nami nifanyeje, kijana mwenzio,And I, your young lover, what can I do,
Nashindwa na mali sina, we,Was I not defeated by the lack of fortune,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you Angel.
Nashindwa na mali sina, we,Was I not defeated by the lack of fortune,
Ningekuoa Malaika.I would marry you Angel.

Angélique Kidjo's version:


By Fadhili Williams, the composer of the song:
