about

Mama told me is Osekre's second single release from the Converse Rubber Tracks recording sessions. The track is unique because it's an excellent mash up of West African "Jama," an upbeat folk Medley with Rock. This tune is excellent for dancing and celebrating! Judge for yourselves!

lyrics

Mama told me

Ohhhhh mama told me!

Mama told me
Son listen to me

If you don’t know
Don’t act like you know

Even if you know
Act like you don’t know

So you might learn
Something you don’t know

You be what you are
You are what you be

You give what you have
You have what you give

You sow what you reap
You reap what you sow

No pain no gain
To gain there is pain

2x Oooooh …. mama told me
Mama told me
Mama told me
Mama told me

2x She must be starting something
She must be starting something
She must be starting something
She must be starting something

Her eye brows
Her giggles

Body language
Same age range

I like her

She looks away when I look
And looks at me when I turn
Again I turn when she turns

I like her

I Don’t know
I hope so
She must be starting something

2x Ohhhh she must be starting something
She must be starting something
She must be starting something

Mama told me
Son listen to me

If you don’t know
Don’t act like you know

Even if you know
Act like you don’t know

So you might learn
Something you don’t know

You be what you are
You are what you be

You give what you have
You have what you give

You sow what you reap
You reap what you sow

No pain no gain
To gain there is pain

Oooooh …. mama told me

about

Osekre New York, New York

"This Afro-indie band can’t be pinned to any one genre but instead transcends all, with lyrical and reflective beats. The band “turns local sounds global and brings global sounds local” with its clear African influence, but its sound goes beyond this, creating a universal funk that anyone would want to jam to.
