Tanzanian singer Zuchu’s 2020 hit single “Ashua” is a celebration of love and passion. The song’s lyrics are full of sensual imagery and metaphors, painting a picture of a couple in the throes of passion.

The song begins with Zuchu greeting her lover, comparing him to a ripe pomegranate and a tender fig. She sings about the sweetness of their love, like olives from paradise. She describes how they make love on the floor, like two snakes wrestling. She says that he calls her “hunnie,” and that he is the third most handsome man in the world.

In the second verse, Zuchu sings about how her love has taken her on a journey from the coast to the mainland. She says that he is the captain of her ship on the road of love. She urges him to enjoy himself, singing “Ashua,” which means “to enjoy.”

The chorus of the song is a repeated refrain of “Ashua.” Zuchu sings this word with passion and intensity, conveying the joy and excitement of her love.

In the third verse, Zuchu sings about how she has waited for her love with patience. She says that she has been rewarded with everything she wanted. She describes how she spices up their love life, feeding him spinach, plumping him up with her curves, and playing with him like a match.

The song ends with Zuchu singing about how her love is so intense that it will make other people jealous. She sings about how they play games together, including “solo” and “zumari,” which are both euphemisms for sex.

Ashua” is a catchy and sensual song that celebrates the beauty of love and passion. Zuchu’s powerful vocals and evocative lyrics create a powerful and unforgettable experience for the listener.
