OLDIES SUNDAY: @YasusAfari – My Mother Who Fathered Me (1995) (Happy Mother’s Day)


Happy Mother’s Day! From the Mama to the Aunty, to the Grandma, to the Foster Mom, to the Step Mom, you are appreciated! To show some appreciation, we pulled up this selection from Dub Poet, Yasus Afari titled, “My Mother Who Fathered Me“. Produced by Yasus for the Fathers Africa and Senya-Cum Labels in 1995, the Dub Poet expresses his love for the one he calls, “Mama”. From his birth, to being a man, he speaks on the times his Mother was there for him and other siblings. He also mentions her qualities and the efforts she’s made to ensure the family is good. The single was also a part of his “Honour Crown H.I.M.” album that was released in 1997.

13th Street Promotions wishes every Mother out there a Happy Mother’s Day!
