Tanzania’s Beka Flavor has released a new song dubbed “Poa Poa.” The song which reflects Beka’s sound resolution to a conflict he has is definitely a hit.
Done in Swahili, the Tanzanian artist demonstrates his amazing vocals as he navigates the lyrics
Kuna mengi tulipanga kipindi nipo na yeye
Ila akaja akapangua akayavuruga yale
Kusema la ukweli nimepata pigo
Moyo umetoboka ninauma figo
Kichwa change mwenywe unaona mzigo
The song I mostly about how disappointed we can get when betrayed by lovers.
He goes on and on about how to deal with the it in a rational way before he decides he is not going to take it to heart and concludes:
Mimi nachukulia tu poa poa
Siwezi weka kwenya moyo,
Ona kawaida, ntafanya nini kibogoyo mie.
It’s quite a peaceful song despite the magnitude of love emotions behind it. He takes the less stressful approach. Beka Flavor retains calmness throughout the song whose lyrics suggest so much sorrow within.
The video is in a domestic set up and a little of the outdoors in the rain.
We see the very young family in their happy times and the agony as he is going to miss them when they leave after that fight.
