“Shingirira, Hold On” Lyrics:

Verse 1
Moyo wangu warwadza (my heart is hurting)
Saying goodbye for now,
But I know tichafara (we shall rejoice)
Pandichakuona mumwe wangu, (when I see you my Beloved)
Moyo wako (your heart) was so pure,
Everything about you so cool,
Always said don’t worry I’ma make sure,
Whenever there was pain baby you was the cure,
My number one hot stepper,
Fire cracker Hot pepper Go getter,
Trend setter babygirl, irreplaceable,
I know with ya beautiful smile ya would tell us

Hold on
Shingirira Shingirira, Mwana wamai
(Stay Strong My friend/ mama’s baby) baby hold on
Hold on (Hold on baby, hold on hold on)
Shingirira (Stay Strong)
Hold on baby,
Shingirira Mwana wa mai (Stay Strong My Friend/ mama’s baby)

Verse 2
My heart still bleeding, yeah
Baby girl u left us needing you,
But I trust Uri panaShe (You’re with The Lord)
Kuna mai na baba vangu Uko kurinaniwe (Reunited with my mother and father)
Nyika ino (This world) wasn’t ready for you,
But the rest of us who love you wasn’t ready for God to take you,
You touched so many lives so many big blessed because of you,
An angel among us, Wish everybody saw you for you,
Super Star shine bright you left us your lil baby,
For her we gon fight,
For what’s right wit all our might
Now you watching over us flying higher than a kite
I might not see you with my eyes but In my heart I feel your light,


Zorora murugare (Rest In Peace)
Zorora, zorora, zorora (Rest, Rest, Rest)
Zorora murugare, (Rest In Peace)
