about

In this original song by Bombino, he advises the Tuareg leaders to be responsible when they defend interests of the Tuareg people. He says they should focus on unity of their community and avoid divisiveness and foolish behavior. These leaders are herders of the Tuareg society and must manage it correctly.

lyrics

People! Hold on for a moment!
Anyone you contact, will tell you
Our community needs help
We are suffering and we have to stand up for our rights
We have to fight against injustice and discrimination
But he has other ideas concerning just his own life
At the end you will realize that he is fighting only for his own interests
And he has no aims for the people
Oh my brother! We have heard so many ideas without a good future
We have lost many men for our rights but there are no benefits for us at the end
It is necessary to find another solution
People! Hold on for a moment!
