Juli Endee Releases New Single

first_imgLiberia’s cultural ambassador, Juli Endee, has released a new single called “Open Your Eyes”, an awareness song for the upcoming general and presidential elections, calling on Liberian people to fully scrutinize all politicians before voting.The new song, which is composed on the signature Liberian “Gbema” beat, opens with a battle cry – Yor-yor! – and continues with captivating lyrics about “two types of politicians”.Going exactly in the writer mind, the song advises people to not sell their vote because of poverty but vote for their children’s future so that Liberia can be a better place.The song also advises Liberians not to vote for people who come in a very short period of time just to initiate cosmetic projects that will not last.Ambassador Endee said, “I think over the years, I have seen, watched and participated in several elections at the same time, observing that the vast majority of the voting population have not been fully educated about the value of a person’s vote.“Their rights have been played with and so I sit down asking myself, what can I do to educate my people about the electoral process? I then thought to use music since it can go across all boundaries and be food for the soul.“This is the 21st century; you do not need latrines, bus stop and other things to vote for a politician. Be mindful of the person you vote for so Open Your Eyes.”She said the song title, “Open Your Eyes”, speaks for itself because it urges Liberians to see clear before they cast their votes.Below are lines from the song: OPEN YOUR EYES LYRICSIntroYoaaa yorYorBatioooo, batiBatiZay quo, zay quicLiberia zay quicZay quicThere are two kinds of politiciansGoodies politicians andKpankpan politiciansI wan, hey, I wan heyI wan, hey, alllllll……LiberiaChorusOpen your eyesOh my peopleMama, Papa, Brother, SisterOpen your eyesOh my peopleMama, Papa, Brother, SisterI don’t want no Goodies oooI don’t want no GoodiesI want my Kpankpan yahI want my KpankpanI don’t want no Goodies oooI don’t want no GoodiesI want my Kpankpan yahI want my KpankpanWhich person you dey want nowAbi na which person you dey want too A Goodies politician orKpankpan politiciansMy brother, sister, mama, papaLet me tell you somethingStanza 1A goodies politicians, start 1 year before electionThey bring their plenty moneyAnd their big big motorWith their T. shirts, flyers, postersFew offices, fan clubs, cars and speechesKai tay ma, kai tay ma way kai tay maGoodies kai tay maKai tay ma, kai tay ma way kai tay maGoodies kai tay maThey only bring two projectsHand pump and school feesThey think say we are gbellehWe na gbelleh ooooSo mama, papa, brother, sisterShine your eyes, well well oooChorusOpen your eyesOh my peopleMama, Papa, Brother, SisterOpen your eyesOh my peopleMama, Papa, Brother, SisterI don’t want no Goodies oooI don’t want no GoodiesI want my Kpankpan yahI want my KpankpanI don’t want no Goodies oooI don’t want no GoodiesI want my Kpankpan yahI want my KpankpanStanza 2Kpankpan politicians oooo oh ohKpankpan politicians ooooKpankpan politicians oooo oh ohKpankpan politicians ooooIs a person for the peopleAnd the person with the peopleThey love their peopleRespect their cultureThey know their people andThey can help their peopleThey support health, agriculture and educationAnd they can do more projects before 1 yearDeposit all their money in their countryInvest all their money in their countryKpankpan politician dat better personKpankpan politicians dat better people oooOk!
