All Around Africa : Leila Moulay [Mauritania]

Bonjour l’Afrique, comment est-il étonnant d’avoir une autre journée ensoleillée! Je suis sur mon chemin à Nouakchott 🙂

A promise is a debt. I did give my word that we will showcase a couple more artists from the wonderful land of Mauritania, so here I am. Indeed, it started from Nouakchott. sorry, that song is stuck on my head. You can’t blame me though, good music is hard to come by and even harder to erase from your memory. 

There is something astonishingly attractive about a beautiful African girl in a hijab. Religions aside, we all unanimously agree on this, may all that support me say ayeeeee! The yes have it. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue with more important matters. Say like the increasingly evident fact that Africa, not only has the most gorgeous women, but also the most resilient, bright and talented ladies who are not ashamed to chase after their dreams. Lupita endorsed this statement before I typed it by the way so anyone else who thinks otherwise, I’m sorry but your opinion is invalid. 

We just verified how Arabic can be so alluring musically when used in rap. Here comes the best part.

If you happen to meet a lady who can sing in Hassaniya, marry her on spot. It doesn’t matter if you have to sell the whole world just make her your wife, do it. And thank me later after your honeymoon. Talking of beautiful, singing and Hassaniya in one sentence can only mean that I have one Leila Moulay in mind. I always hear of angels falling from the sky on to the earth, now I believe it’s true. Because that is the only logical explanation about Moulay’s drop dead killer beauty and angelic voice. She can’t just be an ordinary girl, ooh no she can’t. 

I hear, but don’t understand what she sings about. Damn, I don’t even need to understand the meaning, in my heart I already know she must be singing about something beautiful, like love. Actually, I can sense she professes her undying love for me in her music. I love you too Leila, from the day you fell from Heaven, I’ve always loved you.

I’m delusional. 

Hey, you can’t blame a brother, who in his right mind would resist falling in love with Leila’s astounding vocals? The last time I checked, even those with hearing impairment nodded in agreement. I’m repeating Ma nensah for the umpteenth time. Sweeter with every replay, fresher than the previous listen. It’s honestly hard to believe that musicians like Moulay are also living among us, in what is considered as the dark continent. If Africa is really a dark continent, then Moulay is the star that lights up our motherland. The shining little diamond in the dirt. How I so pray she keeps making our motherland proud.

Watching her dance on the Mourabitounes clip is just priceless. Her smile melts your heart every time it radiates from her visage. Who said again that you have to dance nude for people to like you? I clearly missed that memo, because I was busy watching Leila in her beautiful green hijab. 

Truth is, we don’t have many female musicians who can hold their own, especially on the international platform. We thus need to give all the support and love to the few that emerge. I’m certainly a fan of this beautiful sister and I trust you too will be after listening to her. If I was to make one wish today, it would be to get a chance to see Leila singing live. I can sell my own shadow if I have to, just so I can witness that. We love you princess, the tiara is awaiting you!
