[Lyrics] E.L - State of the Nation Address (Prod. by Yung Fly)


Yuh! This is my state of the nation address

Its no hating, I’m just  stating the facts, updating the masses on the situation that we facing I guess, we can accept its complicated at best

In these hard times of elevated prices, energy crisis, load shedding cling got your destiny deciding

Its only right no matter how vexatious it sounds we learn to prove beyond reasonable doubt

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to state for the record I am a citizen, unwilling witness of the condition in which we living in

A living testimen of civilians who are innocent

A critic of the system for what it is and shoulda been

It shoulda been a paradise for the world to envy, but its hard when all your capital reserves are empty

The rich get rich, chase girls in Bentleys

The poor die courtside, preacher man screaming Amen!


Give it to God, mama give it to God

He go come one day on a beautiful horse

If you dey hung ibi ein go put the food for your mouth

Make you no talk, go your job and play the fool for your boss


Cos you graduated college, now you wish to work and pay dues

Looking up to the government to help and aid you

After service your bank account isn’t operational

As empty as the promises that politician made you

So, how do we stop, it getting worse than ever

Put our differences aside and try to work together

Reassess our methods for more effective measures

better manage our resources, reinvest our treasures

Instead of pickering, we’ve been complaining for years

Who do we blame for this state of affairs, I blame us

If we have the power we make them do what they must

Demand accountability, stepping our game up

they say a billion dollars is gonna cost a billion dollars to solve our present and our imminent problems

Listen we been borrowing from the beginning in Ghana, nothing change, we still living in darkness, chaley isn’t it bonkers?

How corruption is tearing apart

The very fabric of the society, the damage is done

When officers working, air force are begging for funds

The policeman at the checkpoint collecting his one’s, stretching his hand through my window, the other hand on the gun, to get that 2 cedis fix and this is happening right now

Street kids go without a pot to piss in

Minority pointing their fingers in opposition

Wow! You see for me I had to write some rhymes

Or resort to a life of crime, there’s no industry, I write for mines

I swear we’ll never see the right design till we decide to reunite our minds

So stand up for Ghana, stand up now, this is your birth right

As against oppression and suffering, it’s a fair fight

Stand up against tribalism and impaired sight

Fight for your right, arise, you deserve a fair life

Chaley we dey complain for years, who do we blame for this state of affair, I blame us chaley

I guess what I’m saying is one love chaley, one us chaley, good luck chaley!
