Mambo Jambo, comprised of Benjamin, G Stebo, and Only Face, is a Hip-Hop/Bongo Flava band based out of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. "Nakupenda" (I Love You) is the second single off of Mambo Jambo's self-titled 2008 album. It follows after the 2006 release of "2merudi tena" (We're Back!). Mambo Jambo has worked with Miikka Mwamba Kari, acclaimed Finnish producer and founder of Mwamba Productions, and Art in Tanzania, a Finnish-Tanzanian NGO, to produce their 2008 album. The music video for "Nakupenda" was produced by Art in Tanzania and directed/edited by Moriah Arrato Gavrish (Mojo Productions), an American volunteer with Art in Tanzania. In addition to creating entertaining dance songs and heartfelt love songs, Mambo Jambo strives to deliver messages of non-violence and HIV/AIDS awareness through their music. As producer and frontman Benjamin says, "Maybe with our music, people can see the world in our eyes."

Nakupenda Lyrics [English]

Hayya heee [x4]

I love you
Hayya heee
My darling
Hayya heee
Ooh sweetheart ooh
Hayya heee
I'm yours
Hayya heee [x2]

It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me cry
It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me laugh

Sweetheart ooh
Ah yaheeh [x4]

Where are you my darling?
How come I don't see you?
Are you in this earth or in heaven?
I don't understand my love
When I walk
I feel you are not far from me
Come, come, come, come, come, come
And talk to me
Your voice is smooth
It can take a snake from the cave
It makes me strong in our love

I'm looking for you
I fly like a bat
Just to get there
And get a kiss from you
I say I love you Ma
My soul aches
When I look at you
You make me go crazy

I love you
Hayya heee
My darling
Hayya heee
Ooh sweetheart ooh
Hayya heee
I'm yours
Hayya heee [x2]

It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me cry
It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me laugh

Sweetheart ooh
Ah yaheeh [x4]

You're special
Come kiss me Ma
I want to marry you
And be my life partner
Not like a prophet
And not Alesiah
I should pray to God
To open the heavens

I wish my heart will open
For your love to enter
In short, it's like I'm dreaming
You're like a star in a planet of war
War of love which has been there for ages
I adore you love, make my dreams come true my love . . .

Hayya heee [x4]

I love you
Hayya heee
My darling
Hayya heee
Ooh Sweetheart ooh
Hayya heee
I'm yours
Hayya heee

[Instrumental]

It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me cry
It's you, sweetheart ooh
Who makes me laugh

Sweetheart ooh
Ah yaheeh [x4]

Hayya heee
Sweetheart ooh
Hayya heee
Hayya heee
Sweetheart ooh
Hayya heee

I love you . . .
Ooh sweetheart ooh . . .
