hear Cheik Hata, feel Cheik Hata

“the people in despair/how to justify someone’s death/that he died because he was being honest?/the creation of one more mystery to steal some money?/the drunkenness of the people to forget the suffering/ Speak on the equality of rights/if the people have no roof ?/we are the indescribable/(…) it is no use talking about laws/here is an inconvenient case/we live in disarray/under the dictatorship of a president

José Gomes Hata “Cheik Hata”, aged 29, hip hop artist, Angola
