The Marhaba song was composed, produced and performed by Richmond Osabu. Lozo.(Marhaba is a phrase used in the Hausa dialect as a form of welcoming).
This is a year of return song to welcome our brothers and sisters from the African diaspora arriving in Ghana. It is a highlife song composed, sung and arranged by Lozo. He featured Dela Botri who is known as the flute magician.
Marhaba, welcome home
There is no place like home, no place like home
Finding yourself at where you belong
Its so refreshing and so amazing
You have been away for too long, this is the right time to come back home, where you belong
Africa is calling you, mother Ghana is calling you
400 years of being away, you have been through the pace and we meet again o
My brothers, my sisters, my uncles and aunties, let us come together as one to build Africa to be number one.
