VIDEO ALERT: Jain – Makeba (French Artist Pays Tribute To Late South African Superstar Miriam Makeba)


Jain calls herself a songwriter, singer, beatmaker and she sure does does have rhythm. The French artist also has an affinity for the artist most knew as Mama Africa, that is the late South African singer and civil rights activist Miriam Makeba. With the song “Makeba” Jain is paying tribute to one of the voices she grew up listening to while growing up in Toulouse, Congo, Paris, Dubai etc with her family. She managed to pretty much channel a lot of what Makeba was from a musical voice to what she called “the real beauty of human rights”. In the music video for the song, she also did more than that. She portrayed an happy South Africa (where the video was shot), with a lot of dancing and vibrancy. Young and old dancing to the fast paced Makeba beat is definitely something Mama Africa would have loved to see and be a part of. Watch the video below;

Lyrics

Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you

I wanna hear your breath just next to my soul
I wanna feel your breasts without any rests
I wanna see you sing, I wanna see you fight
‘Cause you are the real beauty of human rights

Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you

Nobody can beat the mama Africa
You follow the beat that she’s gonna give you
I need a smile you can love
Make it go, the sufferation of a thousand more

Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you
Makeba, makeba ma che bella, can I get a oooh wee
Makeba, makes my body dance for you

Makeba ma che bella, ooh wee
Makeba ma che bella, ooh wee
Makeba ma che bella, ooh wee
Makeba ma che bella, ooh wee
