ILAM

Topical song with guitar. "If you have no child it is no good. Other women have children, they fill the village. There are many men here standing in the queues for going to Johannesburg. You, my wife, you do not want to eat porridge - you want rice. There is no rice here, because I am poor. Go to the rich where they can afford rice."
So she went to a rich man to get her rice, but now she gets no clothes, no shoes, and at last, no food.

ILAM

Topical song with guitar.
"Now we are well off, my wife, you don't want to know my relatives any more. You want this and that, but not to meet my friends. I have a child who was ill and whom I sent to the herbalist, but although that woman took my money, she did not give my child the right medicine. The herbalist in question was his own grandmother.
