Hello! This is a temporary web page concerning proposed corrected and standardised AICSA lyrics (as compared to the various current AICSA versions) for the song "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" by Enoch Sontonga.
Thanks to all those who provided feedback and suggested the above changes.
Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo, Yizwa imithandazo yethu, Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.
Woza Moya, Woza Moya, Woza Moya, Oyingcwele. Usisikelele, Thina lusapho lwayo.
Morena boloka sechaba sa heso, O fedise dintwa la matshwenyeho, O se boloke, o se boloke, O se boloke, morena se boloke. Sechaba sa heso, sechaba sa Afrika.
Special thanks go to Michael Winikoff for kindly providing his mup source file for me to hack to pieces. You also might want to check out his Online Songbook Project, which has lots of nifty features.
If you want to hear what the tune sounds like, midi files of Nkosi, including for each individual voice part, are available on my (other) Nkosi page.
