Afrobeat guru is getting us to melt under his charm… he just reminded us that one of his songs was about his late mom… how sweet! 

 

This move by the singer, reveals a softer him…a side of his persona which respects women and can sing beautiful songs to them…a romantic ehn? 

 

He calls the track ‘Walk On The Right Side’. Has anybody heard it yet? Although it’s from an old album, Fight To Win in 2001. 

 

Whatever made him tweet about it today, means the thought of her and her advice crossed his mind. 

 

 

Here’s the lyrics; 

Femi Kuti Walk on the Right Side Lyrics

My mother always taught me

That never hurt another

For everything I do in life

Will come back to me in time

She said never ever let success

Get into your head

For all that would make you do

Is lose all your true friends

She said…

 

Walk on the right side

In your lifetime

You will find that guiding star

In your lifetime

On the right side

You will have that peace of mind

In your lifetime

On the right side

 

Failure is the price

One pays for losing concentration

And obstacles will come your way

To distract your attention

You have to be strong

And prepared for any kind of situation

For that is the only way

You will not lose your direction

She said

 

Walk on the right side

In your lifetime

You will find that guiding star

In your lifetime

On the right side

You will have that peace of mind

In your lifetime

On the right side

 

She made me start to think and feel

About the world around me

She made me have that sympathy

For the suffering around

She showed m great concern for

The poor and underprivileged

And always have that trust and faith in the creator

She said

 

Walk on the right side

In your lifetime

You will find that guiding star

In your lifetime

On the right side

You will have that peace of mind

In your lifetime

On the right side

 

In your lifetime, on the right side, in your lifetime (in your lifetime, on the right side)

On the right side, in your lifetime, on the right side (in your lifetime, on the right side…
