Meaning of the song Makeba by Jain


French singer-songwriter Jain's song "Makeba" is taken from her first studio album, Zanaka. Jain wrote the script, and Maxim Nucci, a longtime partner, produced it.


A sample from the 1978 song "Me and the Gang" by American percussionist, songwriter, arranger, and record producer Hamilton Bohannon was utilised in the song's refrain.


It makes reference to South African musician and anti-Apartheid civil rights campaigner Miriam Makeba, popularly known as "Mama Africa".


At its peak, "Makeba" was ranked seventh on the French Singles Chart.

Ooh-ee, Makeba

Makeba, ma che bella

Can I get a "ooh-ee"? Makeba

Makes my body dance for you

Ooh-ee, Makeba

I wanna hear your breath just next to my soul

I wanna feel oppressed without any rest

I wanna see you sing, I wanna see you fight

'Cause you are the real beauty of human right

 

Ooh-ee, Makeba

Nobody can beat the Mama Africa

You follow the beat that she's gonna give ya

Only her smile can all make it go

The sufferation of a thousand more

 

Ooh-ee, Makeba
