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 . . .
