LYRICS: '2015 Wrap Up' by Ruyonga

Wrap Up 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another year
Seems reviewing the one that just ended is only fair
I even heard the social media awards are back
30th March at The Serena’s where they’re gone be at
Courtesy of Blu Flamingo so you know it’s gone be packed
So if you miss them then die from the FOMO, don’t be mad
Cant say I never told you, now back to the task at hand,
2015 was crazy, it started with a bang
and not a good one either, shots fired in parie,
Terrorists killed 11, hashtag je suis Charlie
Our first splash on the scene was when, Kony’s General,
Dominic Ongwen, went and turned himself in -
From victim to kingpin, his crimes against humanity
Have him currently awaiting trial before the ICC
And music had it’s first taste of insanity
As Kanye West almost Tailor Swifted Beck’s Grammys speech,
John Stewart said his time at The Daily Show was over,
His impressive successor was S A’s Trevor Noah
I guess John, felt black lives matter, while the cop
Who popped Walter Scott, seemed to disagree on the matter,
And with all these issues on race and what we could address -
People still had time to debate the color of the dress
Was it black and blue? Or was it white and Gold
Did Flavia really turn down advances from J Cole? -
Some german pilot caused tragedy for his clients
By intentionally crashing the same plane he was flying
So much bad news, we needed something to give us joy
In stepped socialite Seanice, birthing a baby boy 
Congrats, Boss, Jokes, you know it’s all fun
Like Salvador taking down Serena by his lonesome
One man show, he completely sold the house out
Joke after joke, he completely brought the house down
Laughter rumbled like an earthquake coming from the halls -
Sadly real earthquakes killed 8,000 in Nepal
Eddy Kenzo is still undoubtedly the king,
Giving Uganda it’s first BET Award win,
And some cats felt otherwise but they ain’t bring back the prize
As Konshens came again for what seemed like the hundredth time -
From Patoranking to Diamond Platnumz, those gigs were G yo
But we know, the concert of the year almost went to Neyo,
From crowds to set to production, it was legit,
Felt like the Oval held as many people as it could fit,
Yeah, that event would’ve definitely taken the cake
If we’d not become a stop on The Pope’s World Tour Dates
Cause soon as he touched down, he pulled crowds that shut it down
Even enemies shook hands because he’d come around
And once homey got to the shrine and he blessed the mic
(Whoo), them Pope bars had every listener set for life,
Too bad these old heads can’t understand the word finished,
Ain’t raise no standards, only thing they lift(ing) is term limits,
Claim they got still got it, but they just looking sloppey,
I just hope they don’t get caught slipping, what up Mugabe?
If only these dudes who refuse to be moved
Could all stop and ask themselves, what would Magufuli do?
But till then, some entertainers figured if standing by Mzee
Was gonna get them dimes then hey, Tubonga Nawe
Problem is now the country’s looked at them sideways
Cause it’s kind of obvious it was all about pay
One cause that brought artists together for the positive was
When they fundraised for the late Rose Nyakabirwa
They cleared her medical balance at an impressive speed
Sadly she still passed away though so RIP
We also lost Barley Francis, Big Ups to the Legend
From the first to the finish, that’s a dude who represented
Back in the states, it shocked hearing bout that white elitist
Shooting up that Charleston church killing nine black believers
No peace in the Middle East, as world media
covered the tens of thousands fleeing war torn Syria
then add the mass killings all in the name of religion
Egyptians sliced on a Libyan beach for being Christian
Same with the Garissa Campus shootings of all those Kenyans
All cause of ISIS’s world conquering intentions
That heat and May weather brought with it that Mayweather
Versus Pacquaio fight titled the Battle for Greatness
The build up was more exciting than the actual fighting
Seemed like Mayweather basically ducked his way to the title
Now last year both here at home and in the states
We watched the candidates start their presidential race
Trump gave everyone a run they ain’t anticipate
He played his opposition harder than some drum and base
Gay rights activists last year made some major plays
From gay marriage legalized in all fifty states
To Vietnam and even Ireland doing the same
So for the Christians, I guess all that they could do is pray
Speaking of prayer, some whatsappers are out of order,
That’s word to that one prayer group and Brother Ocholla,
From Sports to Music to politics, what can I say
If I tried to exhaust them all, we’d be here all day
So shout outs to web growth, Opera and props to google
Shout Outs to trace, you know it’s music business as usual
Shout outs to all the nominees, I hope you know your winners’s the site, Ruyongamusic is the twitter
And so for now we’ll stop it here and chill where this verse is
And end it on a high note like Justin Bieber’s purpose
So for 2015, that’s the year in review
And we’ll be doing more of these, so we’ll be seeing you soon
