I really like this song Dunia ina mambo and the album Twende Twende! (Let's go!) by Eric Wainaina. I would have imaged a slightly different second verse on the same topic of religion, but the video makes its own statement if you are familiar with the faces which include Queen Victoria, Cecil Rhodes, Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel arap Moi and King Leopold II.

Lyrics from: http://lyrics.ghafla.co.ke/e/eric-wainaina-lyrics/dunia-ina-mambo

Artist: Eric Wainaina
Song: Dunia ina mambo

Verse 1
Shetani akamwuliza Mtakatifu Petero
(The Devil asked St Peter)
Umewahi kuangalia huko chini (aye aye)
(When was the last time you looked down at earth)
Mtu masikini akiiba mkate
(When a poor man steals a loaf of bread)
Atavalishwa pingu miaka mnne
(He goes to jail for four years)
Lakini tajiri anayezorotesha umasikini wa nchi nzima (mwajijua)
(But a rich man who causes the poverty of a whole nation)
Anachekacheka na hakimu
(Laughs with the judges)
Baadaye wapo wote pamoja mikahawani
(Later they meet for a drink)

Chorus
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Kweli ina mambo
(Truly it is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Nyuma ya kila mlango
(Behind every closed door)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)

Verse 2
Shetani akamwuliza Mtakatifu Petero
(The Devil asked St Peter)
Ni dini gani inayoendeleza chuki (mambo bado)
(What religion spreads hatred)
Kwa ajili ya bidii ya bin adam
(Because of the efforts of the children of adam)
Mimi sina kazi
(I am without work)
Warumi wachukia wakristo wengine
(The Roman Catholics hate the Protestants)
Wengine wachukia Waislamu (bure bilash)
(The Protestants hate the Muslims)
Waislamu wachukia Wayahudi
(The Muslims hate the Jews)
Na nguvu zangu zote singeweza hayo yote
(With all my might I couldn't have done all this)

Chorus
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Kweli ina mambo
(Truly it is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Vituko na vichekesho
(Jokes and mischief)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)

Verse 3
Shetani akamwuliza Mtakatifu Petero
(The Devil asked St Peter)
Ni kulala mnalala au vipi (hallo hallo)
(Are you guys asleep or what?)
Mnaruhusu viongozi wa nchi tajiri
(You allow wealthy nations)
Kumiliki nchi masikini
(To control poor nations)
Kwa mfano wananchi wa nchi zilizokuwa chini ya ukoloni
(For example, the citizens of former colonies)
Waliporwa mali zao au siyo (au siyo)
(Weren't they robbed)
Basi mbona waliyonyanyaswa wasipande ndege
(Then why can't those were oppressed jump on a plane)
Na kwenda ng'ambo ili kurudisha…haki zao
(Go abroad and claim what's rightfully theirs)

Chorus
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Kweli ina mambo
(Truly it is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
Vituko na vichekesho
(Jokes and mischief)
Dunia ina mambo
(The world is crazy)
