Here are the lyrics of the popular song 'African Queen' by 2face Idibia (some people know him as 'tuface idibia'). What do you think of the song? Is it over-rated like some people claim[b] Olufunmi[/b] is?



[I]yeah, yeah,[/I] you are my african queen, [I]oooh lord, oooh lord[/I]

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 coulda 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.

[I]CHORUS
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[/I]

[I]yahh oooo[/I] you are my african queen,[I] oh lord, oo lord hmm[/I]
out of a million you stand as one
the outstanding one
I look into your eyes, girl what I see is paradise,

[I]yeah[/I] you captivated my soul, now everyday I want you more [I]o o oo[/I]
How can I deny this feeling I'm feeling inside
[I]ey[/I] oh no one can never take your place,
can never take your space,
thats a fact I cannot erase

and you, you are the one that makes me smile
make me float like a boat upon the nile.

[I]oooo ooooo yaahhh yahhh oooo[/I]

you are my african queen and I know, oh yes I know[I] hhn[/I]
you are my african queen and I know, see I know
See I know what I am feeling in my heart and in my soul
oh I know that it is love
And I know that this love was surely sent from up above
Cause you're the only one I think of

you are my african queen
and I know that this means that you're the only one that I will serve
I'll give you my heart, my love, my body and my money
Every other thing you think of
Who could think of anything better than you
Who could think of ever hurting you

Sacrifice my all, I'll give it all to you
cause you ar my african queen
for REAL

So black, so beautiful
I love you, I love you, I love you, [I]munyemo[/I], I love you, I love you, I love
you, munyemo, I love you, I love you,[I] ooohhh yeah[/I], my African Queen, I
love you, I love you.

I'm of the personal opinion that Olufunmi is wonderful. African Queen is by no means any less wonderful. The fact that 2Face's vocal quality can not be overlooked makes it even better.

There are three songs I listen to repeatedly and 'Olufunmi' takes the first place, followed by 'African Queen' and "Oruka Ti D'owo Na". I usually leave them on while cleaning on Saturday or something. So, yes, it's really good and I don't think it's overrated.
Re: 'You Are My African Queen' lyrics (2face Idibia) by Nobody: 1:49am On Apr 30, 2005
Overrated is not the word. the word is "over popular".  The song has rained too much that I'm getting sick of it. the same way I'm sick of 'Olufunmi'.  Anyway, good luck to 2face.  I envy you big time!  You're the man.

Now I know why this thread is in the list of top ten thread by views, despite only two replies, it gets so many hits via search engines http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=You+Are+My+African+Queen+lyrics+2face+Idibia .  You know, I got a blog and I keep track of my hits so I know that Nigerians and music lovers alike are crazy over 2face material on the net.

All over the world people are crazy about stars. "Britney Spears" has been the top search term on google for years!

I don't know what else to say, because 2Face is the bomb, over here in South Africa, they are very crazy about 2face's album, especially My African Queen, he is just too much, anytime I listen to the track, I always wish I was in Nigeria with my girl. Olufunmi is alright, but another track that I like listening to is Faze's track. I think you guys should check this website www.duduradio.com, because they always make me feel at home. Sharp.

Trae, I have always thought you are an artiste worth his salt but I might have to disagree with your view for once. How can you ever get tired of a classic?

Nigerian artistes have produced few classics over the years like Fela's Lady n BONN, Sonny Okosun's 'Which Way Nigeria' and Mike Okri's 'Omoge'. 2Face's 'African Queen', Sunny Nneji's 'Oruka' and Styl-Plus's 'Olufunmi' are the best songs to have come out of Nigeria in this millennium.

From your blog, I know you are more disposed to rap music, so would you rather one of Nigerian Rap Songs be rated on same level with these songs? Brother, keep it real! Let's hear it for these guys in 2004.
Re: 'You Are My African Queen' lyrics (2face Idibia) by Nobody: 9:18am On May 05, 2005
I'm flattered, what more can I say? But Jio, I hope you know the saying that too much of everything is bad or familiarity breeds contempt. For me, I have to rest 'African Queen', so that when I listen to it again in the next two/three months it'll be music to my ears once again.

I want to be able to listen to the 2face songs on my account.
Re: 'You Are My African Queen' lyrics (2face Idibia) by Seun(m): 2:06pm On May 17, 2005
Odunayo, to play 'African Queen' on your PC right now, just go to the official website and wait for 5-25 minutes depending on the speed of your Internet connection, and you will hear the song on your PC.

We're working on making it possible for our members to listen to Nigerian music from their accounts, but we want to do it in a legal manner, without violating any laws.

Well I do like this song a lot, there is a deep meaning behind those lyrics.

He talks about the beauty of a black women. He is proud of where he comes from an African man, he puts a number of ideas into one song. If someone sang that to me it would at least put a smile on my face.

Would you rather him sing about a tall blonde women, or something meaningless. I mean girls are always complaining of how unromantic guys can be. There are so many different angles to look at this song, I could strip it of every layer but that would take forever.

Everyone interpret it as you like and find you own individual meaning. I am sure that everyone can relate to it in some shape or form.

Hi
Am Omobolanle, am new to the site/forum, am really impressed. Talking about African Queen, whatever popularity or rating the song is getting now is well deserve. The song is a true reflection of the African beauty - the lyrics, the composition everything about it.

One love

Hi ,
I am physpamac and new in this forum. talking about about african queen, I think 2face has done something wonderful. He has served as an eye uponer to most of us and today, I must say that I am proud for I know our ladies are all queens and should be treated as such.

2Face's voice is so thrilling and all I ahve to say is for him to keep making proud .

I am always touched and marked each time I listen to African Queen.

Thanks for doing what you do.
