When you are King Of African Music Youre The King, Because Is The King Of All Professions

Chorus
Lyrically Do My Thing, Like Fela 
Musically Im A King, Like Fela 
See Im A Smooth Cool Type Of Fella, Like Fela 
The Greatest Artiste Ever To Walk This Earth, Oh Dats Fela 
Hook
I know say u go dey doubt me 
But Soon You Go Dey Shout Me 
Dem No Get Faith O Dem No Get Faith O So Dem Go Dey Doubt Me 
But Soon Them Go Dey Shout Me, Soon Dem Go Dey Shout me 

Rap 1 
Me I liken myself to the greats
Loosers cannot be my mates
So if greatness doesnt fall in your faith 
Then at all at all me and yall cant
relate
Dont you understand that I got a dream 
And I don't care as crazy as it seems
Im about to shine with the brightest beam 
Cus my bloodline Fela running in my stream 
Cross rivers seas and borders and borders 
Cus my Music reaching others 
We from Africa but they reaching for us 
Reality I preach my stories
The Truth wont be told unless we
tell it
If we leave it to them they will wrongly spell it 
The Greatest Artist ever F E L A thats how u spell it

Chorus 
Hook 

Fela Voice 
Music is the Weapon of the future

Rap 2 
If you dont know who Fela is I dont blame you 
Thats why I wrote this song to
explain who 
The Man was, what he stood, for and all the  pain he went through even tho He was an Angel 
A Savior to the world from Mama
Nigerian but had love for Ghana
And the continent but the vip's dem all crazy Fela go talk get drama
I make sure his Legacy lives on 
As long as Man still dey sing song 
Omo I dey write chale I dey sing song 
If Femi Kuti hear this ego sing some 
Chorus 
Hook 

Fela Voice 
Everybody knows Africa has to be United now to have any headway but how its going to happen is the Great Question 
Track Name: Buyaka
BUYAKA featuring Black Prophet

Intro:
Asem: Yo prophet wha gwan
Prophet: Wooh Asem yeah
Asem: We meet again bro
Prophet: Again and again
Asem: Wonua ma )mo nna nt3m
Prophet:Mo b3 da nt3m nt3m nt3m
 
Chorus ( Black Prophet)
Buyaka come kill all dem song
Dis a one a wipe all a unu dirty frown
Righteousness come fi take over nu town
Yooooo burn den without apology

Verse 1 ( Asem)
I save my verses and kill em they know me
Original don dada man a never phony
Lifes good big tv screen a sony
Blow doe? Cant make it rain cus its snowy
Cold with the flow when i spit its like moscow on the beat 
I Russia with punchlines and put you to sleep
Wob3da nt3m s3 me kaa y3
Manum ns3m nya nsaay3
They wanna fit in my shoes but my feet too steep
And my brain too shallow to
follow my line of thoughts
No more kpayor,Pigaro yes those are my lines off course 
Killing everybody in the game is my line of course
Outshine your floss huh 
Line up my force huh
Energy i deliver in my daily remedy of poetry can be compared to insanity
The floe try oh see thats absurd yo its vanity
Rap so good when heard atheist turn to christianity
The devil is a liar and he lies through Delilah
But my head strong pass Sampsom so she  go tire
I'll be strong when she's gone she can't cool mi fire
My ambition way bigger than your desire

Chorus ( Black Prophet)
Buyaka come kill all dem song
Dis a one a wipe all a unu dirty frown
Righteousness come fi take over nu town
Yooooo burn den without apology
Verse 2 ( Asem)
Been on the low for a bit
Trying to grow my shit
So when it drops people won't be like 'oh that's it'?
They're like damn that's good
The man improved
Make other rappers envy and wish they stand where I stood
But my situation is different God is hands-on on me
Continentally I'll be relevant and your fans fall for me
Summer-winterly we will be traveling cos the jet's fueled for me
Big dreams we unravelling every go-getter's story
But some days will come when you will lose a few
Like when little Ray Charles losed his view
He never gave up like losers do
He had aim like good shooters do
The objective of life is lived by faith
My past digressions are not my face
They are pasty impressions of that dark place
I was when I lived in those dark days
The future is always brighter when you have something to look back onto
The low moments will come and go let the highs get stuck on you

Chorus
Track Name: Hold You Tonight
Hold you tonight
 Intro ( Asem )
  This song goes out to the ladies who've got their independence
  Worked hard all her life she
don't need no mans attendance
  Had a few bad relationships in the past approach love with such vengeance
  So the life she lives is empty like a perfume with no fragrance

 Verse ( Afriyie )
  The cars, the crib the nice things can't hold you
  If ebey cold in the night baby tell me what u gon do
 Everybody needs somebody something got to give
 You think you need nobody that's not how to live
 Chorus( Repeats Twice )
  Who's gonna hold you tonight
  Who go dey hold you tonight
  Who's gonna hold you tonight

 Verse ( Asem )
  Yo girlfriend I see you, miss independent you are
  You don't depend on a man you depend on you and that makes you a star
 The picture looks so perfect u go think say she's got it all
 But when you look deep down inside you go see say chale she's got a flaw
 Look into her heart and you see scars
 And tho she drives in a G class
 Don't be fooled by the disguise, let me put the story back on reverse
 She fell in love with a jerk
 Relationship never really worked
 Got her pregnant left when she told him abortion, heart broken really hurt
 So since then, every other time that she thinks men
 She thinks of the jerk she fell in love with and think Love is all about pretense
 So in her defense, she works hard
 Thinking success could replace love
 There's a thin line between love and hate and it never ends well when they face off, Break Ups
 I wrote this song because I care for you
 You beautiful you deserve a man who's gonna be there for you
 So don't give up on love
 This is my prayer for you
 And I made the chorus simple and clear for
Chorus Repeats
Bridge

You dey keep you guard up
  Let somebody in, you need to let somebody in
 You no fed up?
 Been down too long its time to keep your head up
 Baby step up, Don't you give up
 A song for the ladies Asem and Afriyie
Chorus Repeats
Intro repeats as outro
Track Name: Love
Love
 Intro
I met a man who told me son don't fall in love cus you will break your heart,

And I told him  I guess I don't have to live cus I will die

 Verse 1
 Its like a magical feeling when u feel inside
 Could be tragic if the one u feeling isn't right
 If you lived a life and never had it then you lived a lie
Cus it could make you feel like you walking on the Sky
 Huh, it brought great men down on their knees
 From hercules to Achilles, a lot of wars been fought and lost and won for

  Chorus
 This thing called Love, this thing called Love
 I'm talking bout this thing called Love
 This four letter word Love
 Make you feel like you can fly to the moon and back, do things like
damn did I really do that
 Oh Love, I'm talking bout this thing called love
 Make you feel like you swim across the seven oceans, drink the deadliest potions
  I'm talking bout Love, this thing called Love


   
Verse 2
  I met a man who told me love is kind
  And another man also told me love is Blind
 So I asked him homie how do I see the signs
 Cus a wise man told me love cannot be defined
 Is it divine? Is it God sent ?
 If Love ends will the world end
 Another school of thought says Love is a force created by scientists and its nonsense
 The minute you feel it never wanna be alone
 Bebiaa )d) w) no that's where you call your home
 Even Einstein de ne tirim dwene ne na dwene nyinaa couldn't explain this beautiful thing called
 Chorus Repeats

 Bridge
  This thing called Love, Love, Love
  This things called love, I'm talking bout this thing called Love
  This thing called Love
  If you in hear and you've  ever been in love put your hands in the air
 Let me hear you say Yeah
 Yeaaaaah ( Response )

Verse
Most people work from nine to five
Sweat blood and tears everyday they strive
Making so much money but they're not living life
They think they're living but they are not alive
Cus they don't live the life they love
And they don't love the life they live
You just got to pray to God above If u get enough you try to give,
Cus after all is said and done
There's always evil under sun
So you just try to keep a good heart and always party and have fun

We party all day, party all night
And if we don't get things our way we starting a fight
And we don't wait till its friday to get wasted, everyday wasted

I heard them say we are the Brazilians of African football, little do they know that Brazil is Africa and Africa is Brazil 

Chorus ( Funtain )
Brazil do you remember when 
We were brothers and sisters back then 
The game has brought us back again 
We be one I say o my friend 
Hook ( Asem ) 
Na we be number one 
Na we be number one
Africa number one 

Rap ( Asem )
Thank God for inspiration
Its all in the rhythm, its all in the celebration
Its all in the sound and music, its all in the jubilation
Its all in the groove and the vibe, Assembilation, call it Assembilation
The cup is coming to Africa but its going through Brazil first
Africa is Brazil, Brazil is Africa the truth hurts 
When I heard Funtain sing I had to write a cool verse 
This aint Hip hop but I swear to God it will impress Kool Herc 

Chorus 

Bridge ( Asem ) 
Africa marching on 
Europe Is marching on 
Asia is marching on 
America marching on 
South America marching on 
Australia marching on
