African Music Post: Prince Nico - Sweet Mother

The most popular African song ever recorded, it has been covered and rearranged countless times. Fans of Vampire Weekend might the familiar with the guitar style used in the opening, it is a style used mostly in highlife music. The song reminds me of much simpler times when I had a better relationship with my mother.It is in pidgin english and quite easy to follow, but just incase you don't immediately understand the singer is basically thanking his mother for everything she's done for him and all her hardwork.
