Zuchu, the Tanzanian singer and WCB artist, released her song “Raha” in 2020. The song is a celebration of love and passion, and it has quickly become one of her most popular hits.
The song begins with Zuchu singing about how her lover’s voice makes her feel. He tells her to “dance,” and she lets herself go, feeling the pleasure of his touch. He takes her to “Mbezi Kimara,” a neighborhood in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and they make love until the early hours of the morning.
In the second verse, Zuchu sings about how her lover has taught her about love. He has shown her new things, and she is eager to learn more. He has drawn her a map of a hidden treasure, and she is excited to explore it.
The chorus of the song is a simple but powerful expression of love. Zuchu sings, “Kupendwa raha” (Being loved is happiness). She is filled with joy and contentment, and she knows that she is in love.
The third verse of the song is a warning to those who would try to come between Zuchu and her lover. She tells them that their words are meaningless, and that their jealousy is pointless. She is a free bird, and she will always return to her lover.
The song ends with a repetition of the chorus, and Zuchu’s voice is filled with passion and emotion. She has found true love, and she is determined to cherish it.
“Raha” is a well-crafted song with a catchy melody and meaningful lyrics. Zuchu’s powerful vocals and passionate delivery make the song a truly memorable experience.
Here are some of the specific lyrics that I found particularly interesting:
- “Kanipa shuruti la kumteka, teka” (He gave me the challenge of capturing him)
- “Kaniweka darasani” (He put me in class)
- “Kopa lenye nyingi siri” (A treasure chest full of secrets)
- “Vineno vya kisirani” (Words of bitterness)
- “Ndege ya asili ya buga” (A bird of the wild)
These lyrics suggest that Zuchu’s love is not easy. It is a challenge, but it is also a journey of learning and growth. Zuchu is willing to put in the effort, and she is determined to find happiness.
“Raha” is a song that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the joy of love. It is a reminder that love is a gift, and that it should be cherished. Stream below;
