Sonini meaning

Sonini is one of the songs on Sun-El’s EP Africa to the world whose video was released immediately after the album. Sonini’s video can be found on the YouTube page EL World TV where it was published on 23rd April 2018. As at May 1st, 2019, Sonini had over 7.5 million views with over 26k thumbs up.

Sun-El Sonini is short audio though the video runs for 4.18 minutes. In the uptempo traditional setting song, Sun of El features Simmy and Lelo Kamau. The song continues the theme that is clear from the album- Africa to The World from the unique seductive sound and lovely vocals.

The Sonini meaning is quite clear from the detailed video that was shot in a home setting. In the video, the man has to leave home for work, and the woman now has to do things like wait up to share dinner with her man. The first part is sung by Simmy with Lelo Kamau joining in later on, and the two women pray together. The video has a happy ending when the couple is reunited after he comes from work. It is a love story.

Sonini Lyrics

The song is fairly short, and therefore easy to master with a repetitive catchy chorus and two verses. It would be nice if you could actually sing along as the catchy tune plays on your device. As such, here are Sonini lyrics;

[Intro - Simmy]




[Verse 1 : Lelo Kamau]

Uma ngishiy’wa Nguwe,

Ay angikwaz ukuzibambela,

Angikwaz’ ukuzibambela.

Ngidinga Wen’ eduze kwam,

Eeeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!


Themba lam’ Nguwe.

Eeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!

Themba lam’ Nguwe.

Eeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!

[Verse 2]


Ngoba konk’ engiyikho!

Konk’ enginakho!

Konke kuvela Kuwe.

Oh ngiyabonga!

Eeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!


Themba lam’ Nguwe.

Eeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!

Themba lam’ Nguwe.

Eeeeeh Qamatha! Sonini!
