about

“Amazing”, the EP, was written and recorded in Paris, Philadelphia, New York and Maputo over a two-year period, and each city played an important role in shaping its sound.
The project’s sonic diversity is a testament to Rafiya’s transcultural influences and its transcendental appeal is proof that music truly is a universal language.
Through songs about love, faith, heartbreak and hope, Rafiya wants to share her positive and optimistic perspective on life - a gift she deems Amazing.

Track Name: Amazing
You keep on giving me everything that I need
Even when I don’t deserve it, you’re there for me
It’s your nature to love me in spite of me

When my heart is heavy and I can’t sleep at night
Lord you have a way to show me your light
Before I know it I feel peace
And I know you touched me

You’re amazing, so amazing

When I think of all the things that I’ve been through
I know if I’m still here today it’s because of you
Your grace, your mercies have kept me
And your grace, your mercies will keep me

You said you’ll be with me every day until the end of the world
Since you’re with me I shall not fear
Because I know that everything will be alright

You’re amazing, so amazing
You’re so amazing
Track Name: So Beautiful
I’m so happy to be your lover, your lady
All day, all night wanna be by your side
The touch of your smile makes me high
The taste of your skin takes me on cloud nine

Boy it just feels so right
Didn’t wanna waste no time
You stole my heart that first night
I can’t deny it baby
I love it when you say

Girl don’t you know
You’re so beautiful
I wanna give all my love to you girl
Not just a night
But the rest of your life
I wanna be always here by your side

When I don’t hear your voice
I feel so empty so all alone
I need you by my side
Never leave me baby
Can’t be without you baby
It feels so good in your arms, in your life
Baby I’m so happy you feel the same way

Boy it just feels so right
Didn’t wanna waste no time
You stole my heart that first night
I can’t deny it baby
I love it when you say

Girl don’t you know
You’re so beautiful
I wanna give all my love to you girl
Not just a night
But the rest of your life
I wanna be always here by your side

J’ai besoin de toi
Reste près de moi

Boy don’t you know
You’re so beautiful
I wanna give all my love to you boy
Not just a night
But the rest of your life
I wanna be always here by your side
Track Name: Mario
Je ne veux plus écouter tes promesses
J’en ai assez que tu me mentes sans cesse
Je pourrai bien me passer de tes caresses
Mario nalembi
Mario nabaye

I’ve had enough of all of your lying
Go ahead and stop the begging
You never loved me
Stop pretending
Mario nalembi
Mario nabaye

Tous les jours c’est une nouvelle histoire
Toi et moi il n’ya plus d’espoir
Je ne veux plus pleurer tous les soirs
Mario nalembi
Mario nabaye

Mario c’est trop tard
Il faut que tu partes
Stop lying
I’ve had enough
Mario na lembi
Mario na baye
Track Name: I Forgive You (Na Limbisi Yo)
No one’s perfect
We’ve all made mistakes
Even when we do our best
We fall sometimes

I know you feel awful about what you said
Your silence would have been golden
I know you wish you could take it all back
I saw it on your eyes
Relax

I forgive you, I forgive you

Essuies tes larmes
J’ai tout oublié ne le sais tu pas
Je sais que tu regrettes ce que tu as fais
Tu aurais aimé l’effacer
Je sais que tu aimerais revenir en arrière
C’est le passé, c’était hier

Je te pardonne, je te pardonne
Na limbisi yo, Na limbisi yo
Track Name: One Of Those Days
Woke up this morning feeling a little sad
One of those days when I just want to stay in bed
I don’t want to do a thing
I just need to be left alone
Turning my phone off
Sorry if you can’t reach me

Just one of those days
Wanna be on my own

I don’t feel like getting in the shower
The light’s too bright
I might as well close the shutters
I don’t want to eat a thing
I just need to be left alone
Retreating to my soul
Please don’t try to reach me

Just one of those days
Wanna be on my own
Track Name: Fétiche
Nzambe asala bato
Motindo na motindo
Oh Nzambe
Nzambe yokanga
Apesi bango nzoto
Molimo pe mayele
Oh Nzambe
Tata na biso

Nzambe asala ngai na bolingo
Apesa ngai se buania
Apimeli ngai se nzoto
Mpongo Love

Papa na ngai awaki
Atiki ngai se mwana
Oh Mpongo oh Mpongo

Papa na ngai awaki
Atiki ngai se mwana
Oh Mpongo Oh Mpongo
Atiki ngai na pasi
Nazalaki nanu mwana
Oh liwa
Liwa yo mabe

Mama na nga asali nionso
Nabokasi ya bo muasi
Natelemi
Natamboli na nguya se ya ye
Track Name: Je Me Cherche
Quand je regarde au fond de moi je m’égare
Je cherche qui je suis
Je cherche l’essence de mon être
J’ignore ce que je veux dans la vie
Je ne sais pas ce que la vie veut de moi
C’est un sentiment qui me ronge
Quand j’y pense dans le noir je plonge

Ils me voient sûre de moi
Et pourtant mes démons me déchirent
Ils me voient sûre de moi
S'ils savaient que mes doutes me torturent

Quand je regarde au fond de moi, je m’égare
Partout je cherche ce qui est mien
Je ne trouve rien
Dans la pénombre je sombre
Je dois trouver ma lumière
Depuis trop longtemps c’est ma prière
Elle semble se dissiper dans l’air

Ils me voient sûre de moi
Et pourtant mes démons me déchirent
Ils me voient sûre de moi
S'ils savaient que mes doutes me torturent
Track Name: Silent Hearts
We were friends
Used to run to each other whenever times were rough
We shared our deepest secrets and fears
We thought we knew everything
And it was us against the world

We never said anything
Didn’t wanna wreck everything
It was obvious that inside our little hearts
There was a dazzling flame
Burning incessantly and killing us
Didn’t want to let them speak

When you smiled my body trembled
My heart stopped
Couldn’t control it
I thought I could tell you how I felt

But I never said anything
Didn’t wanna wreck everything
It was obvious that inside my little heart
There was a dazzling flame
Burning incessantly and killing me
Didn’t want to let it speak

You never said anything
Didn’t wanna wreck everything
It was obvious that inside your little heart
There was a dazzling flame
Burning incessantly and killing you
Didn’t want to let it speak
