To all my precious queens out there, I had to share this dear song. The lyrics are simply out of this world, and the ladies in the video just too beautiful. I raise my hat to 2Face Idibia for capturing the African beauty so well. I have included parts of the lyrics below; for the full version, go here: Enjoy!
‘African Queen’ by 2Face Idibia
Just like the sun, lights up the earth, you light up my life
The only one, I’ve ever seen with a smile so bright
And just yesterday, you came around my way
And changed my whole scenery with your astonishing beauty
Ah, you gonna make a brother sing,
You ordinary thing, a supernatural being,
I know you are just brighter than the moon
Brighter than the star, I love you just the way you are.
And you are my African Queen, the girl of my dreams.
You take me where I’ve never been
You make my heart go ting-a-ling-a-ling, oh ahh
You are my African Queen, the girl of my dreams
And you remind me of a thing
And that is the African beauty yahhh
Out of a million you stand as one
The outstanding one
I look into your eyes, girl what I see is paradise,
So black so beautiful
… I love you, ooohhh yeah, my African Queen, I
Love you, I love you
