Peace Day Project

This year, we are back with our annual Peace Day Project! Throughout the term, we will cooperate with Rhodes University's Department for Music and Musicology and the Sonic Art Music to give our learners the best possible opportunities to write their own lyrics, record their own songs and to come up with a great performance.

So far, five schools are involved, namely Ntaba Maria, Archie Mbolekwa, C.M. Vellem, Good Shepherd and Grahamstown Adventist Primary. Our learners will have two classes per week, one for awarenet and one music class which will be organised by their awarenet coordinators and Zukani from Sonic Art Music.

In the beginning, we will work on our learner's musical education, divide them into groups (rappers, choir, etc.) and work with them on their lyrics.

Afterwards, the lessons will be more practical with singing lessons and the recording of the songs. All participants in the project will present their song during the Peace Day Concert on the 28st of September and a professional jury will vote for the best song, best rapper and best male/female singer.

2. Grahamstown Adventist Lyrics

lerato Jenje
nasiphi zita
lubabalo matshoba
nathina tanda
siyamthanda ndolo
chulumanco mjekula
lukhona namba
aviwe siwundla
Sahluma Hoboshe

CHORUS - Lerato, Nathina, Siya


Peace and love are the key

to a better future

Working together as one

We can make a difference


VERSE 1 - Lukhona


Ndifun'uthando lokwenyani hlale nefamily

andfun'uhlupha'bany'abantu ndibe yi enemy

ekse ndasfela ngalentombi kuthwa ngu emiley

ndiyabathanda bantu andizenzisi

masibathand'a bany´ abantu s'ngabakhalisi

let's stay together sonke man senzi fantasy

singothuki man senzi legacy

siyekuhluph'abanya'bantu siyeke ne teasing


VERSE 2- Lubabalo Matshabo


Undbuza what is love

Ndalibona pha kumandela

Lo mntu lo wasfela

Senzeli lizwe liphela

Oongamla besdelela

bemane besxelela

Benzi ngathi asbeva

I wrote but can I

I've shown my best side

senzi ngathi asbeva

Kodwa ndabaxolela

Coz andnanto yoswela

Ngok ndiyakhweba

Bona bayasebeza and bayakhweleza

Oomama bememeza


[CHORUS]


VERSE 3 - Sahluma


I am the king of the game

not only because I have fame

me and Madiba we have lots of love

and peace like a white dove

I ain't nervous when I'm on stage

that's why you jealous with rage

I remember the childhood daysbut now I'm in teenage ways


VERSE 4 - Chulumanco


Masihlaleni sisonke si together

Masihlaleni sisonke singo brother

Let’s stay together

Let’s live forever

Let’s stay together sinothando

Sihlalisane sonke sinovuyo

Sihlalisane sonke sinoxolo

If peace is there we will conquer

Noluthando ndingalzoba


VERSE 5 - Nasiphi Zita


if ndiyaxoka izobona

musubhoxa

musurhobha

sifun' uthando noxolo sifun' uhleka

kuzakubamnandi aphe khaya kuzobukeka

VERSE 1 – Lukhona


I want real love and stay with the family

I don't want to bother other people and be their enemy

I'm crazy about that girl called Emily

I like people I'm not faking it

Let's love other people and not make them cry

Let's stay together everybody and make a fantasy

Let's not fret rather make a legacy

Let's stop bothering other people and stop teasing


VERSE 2- Lubabalo Matshabo


you ask me what is love

I saw it in Mandela

the man who died for us

made us a world when it was dying

crooks taking advantage

they kept telling us

acting as though they can’t hear us

I wrote but can I

I've shown my best side

acting as though they can’t hear us

but I forgave them

because I have nothing to loose

now I am at ease

they are whispering and complaining

the mothers weeping


[CHORUS]


VERSE 3 - Sahluma

and peace like a white dove

but now I'm in teenage ways


VERSE 4 - Chulumanco


let’s get together

let’s get together like brothers

let’s stay together

let’s live forever

let’s stay together with love

let’s stay together with joy

let’s stay together with peace

if peace is there we will conquer

you can draw this love


VERSE 5 - Nasiphi Zita


If I'm lying come and see

Don't mess up

Don't rob

We want love, peace and laughter

It'll be wonderful at home, and lovely

eyam cikana

emihle nokama
uminathi landu
mbasa mconi
loyiso mconi
jaydon brown
siphuthando fudumele

Chorus:

This is our Peace Day song
Let's all unite is that wrong?
Let's all be one nation
So get an education

Let us respect and love
Because we're all above
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Eyam Cikana:

I share and I help
Love is my app
Ain't wanna give it a gap
And give it a nap
Enough is enough
I smile and laugh
I share and I love
My brothers are though
I felt like a king
When I heard a peace thing
Love is a winning
Love is a caring
Love is ain't kidding
No fighting and kicking
I am winning x3

Lifa Sitole:

Love is a peace
That's what it is
Children are Bless
Nobody is curse
Nobody is obsessed
Money is next
My life is impress
People are ready but never rehearse
Love is a pain
There is nothing to gain
I help and I care
I am kind and I share
Nobody is fair
I fight for my name
I never be lame

Emihle Nokama:

This is a Peace Day
This is a lovely day

Jaydon Cameron Brown:

This is a Peace Day song
Don't take it wrong
Were like King Kong
No ching chong
We ain't tall
When we roll
We don't fall

Kamva Tafane:

Love is my life
Andiphati maboso ne knife
Andibulali wife
Jeez man ziphabeni grend
Sifunale peace
I'll go on my knees
I'm praying the king's
Simanyane sonke siywan
Love is so fun
asifuni otsotsi abaphathi gun
me and my homies we don't wanna
see some blood shot

Siphuthando Fudumele:

Asifuni gazi
Asifuni ngozi
Asifuni gani
Sifuni thando
Sifuni xolo
Asifuni sgezo
Sicely thando
Siceli mbeko

[Chorus]

Mbasa Mconi:

When wars and conflicts totally cease
In our world there shall be peace
So stand long and sing your peace song

Loyiso Mconi:

Stand up and give each other a kiss
Stand up and give a hug to those we miss

The neighbour cries oh no!

Even the mother cries oh no!

Even the children cry oh no!

Everyone cries oh no!


Verse 1 Siviwe Tyala


These news make me feel worried

They torture mother

They strip father off his belongings

They hang around the corner

They don't move for a long time

They're just sitting down doing nothing,

They even buy cheap tobacco

They even travel to East london

They like to be troublemakers

They like…... ?

They keep on killing

Making mom cry again

Making dad cry again

The nation is perishing

It is not rude, it is not left open

It disciplines you it takes time


VERSE 3


It is not dangerous, it doesn't strangle

It doesn't make you bleed, it gives you knowledge

It doesn't beat a woman, it doesn't beat a man

It doesn't call you to jail, it doesn't call you by number

It doesn't have Satan, it doesn't have witchcraft

It doesn't have witches, it calls for the traditional healer

It calls for Cirha (a clan name), it calls you family

It calls the young one, it calls the old one
