Maroua the Martyr: A Dibussi Tande Production

Beautiful offspring of the Sahel 

Land of shifting sands and shaded streets

Land of Bilbil, Couscous and Folléré

Land of overflowing hospitality

Maroua the beautiful Boko Haram’s unwilling lover…

 

 

We hear your cries of distress

Echoing across the Mandara mountains

We see your tears of desperation

Flowing down the Mayo Kaliao river

We hear your howls of anguish

Thundering down Mount Maroua

We shudder at the woeful wails

Of your hapless children

As your leaves turn into petals of blood          

 

 

But do not despair

Cherished child of the Diamare!

From your toil and tears

Shall sprout your freedoms lost

Your broken heart shall mend

Your gentle soul shall heal

And your ghastly scars shall fade

Like a thief in the night

 

 

And throughout the ages

The story shall be told

All across this parched

And picturesque land

Of a proud and resilient people

Who rose from the depths of helplessness

To stand tall once again

Like the unbendable Mindif mountain
