The spelling people pronounced it wrong. Not sure if it was on here before but if it was, here it is again.

Real pressure! I have never heard of the word Negus.
I know that the origin of the N word is supposedly Negro, but could it be that it was originally a corruption of Negus? I'm only guessing, but I would imagine that Ethiopians were one of the first African cultures encountered by white people. The word Negus spoken in a heavy African accent would sound very similar to the N word.
Be kind of ironic if white racists have been calling black people Kings for 500 years!

I think the word is pronounced "nejus" which means king in amharic.

Negro in Spanish means black.
The Spaniards were amongst the first to bring black slaves to the New World in mass amounts.
There is a possibility this is where the term Negro derived from.

No idea just taking a guess.

I knew that someone would accuse me of being naive!! But language is often corrupted and myths become truth. I have no doubt the origin of the word was Negro....but you never know.

Lets say that the first white guy, lets say its a Spanish captain, in Africa met an Ethiopian tribe and they took him to their king...Negus. 
Once word passed through to the uneducated ships crew that the Captain called these black fellas Negus, and they corrupted it out of ignorance to the N word. When asked why black people are called that word, they, trying to be smart, say it comes from the Spanish word for black.

I have no interest in the origin of the word, just speculating, but I like the irony of the word meaning king.

Remember when you pointed out that Damarie Hill was originally D'Amarie Hill?  I bet most people in Grande under 30 don't know that!

I remember reading a sad sack comic book. A general tell a soldier to pass the word on to the captain to meet him by the lagoon. Sad Sack was the last man to present the message to the captain. "the general say you are a baboon"

FS, the word was not corrupted. the meaning of the word negro is the color black, and it derived from the latin root word "nigger". as we all know, spanish is one of the four latin derived languages, french, italian and portugues being the others. the word nigger means black in latin, surprised? don't take my word for it, go look it up for yourself.

JC ...

Dahis because the bass is not that pronounced and so too some of the other standard elements ... even as we recognize de riddim, it's very underscored. I doh disagree with you. In fact, I've found some of the product by Don Fidel somewhat wanting (not what "our" ear is accustomed to?), but I think that is also a product of the fact that the Argentinian reggae product is influenced by cumbia. That stated, he is probably the most significant bridge between English-speaking and Spanish-speaking Rastafari that I have encountered. (Some Senegalese youths who in Buenos Aires might take the mantle in due season and bridge Spanish to French).

It also seems to me that his vocals have been strained ... maybe from overuse and "anger". Other than that he could be Capleton. :devil:

Stumbled upon this 2018 offering by Nadal and recalled this thread. Much better in 2018! See the subtitles.

Although, this collaboration with I-Nesta from back in the day is very good lyrically and melodically. Check it out, even if via Google Translate!


Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
O yay, yes I!
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
O yay

Cuando sientas que el día se hace nubla y no encuentres salida
No dejes de buscar la alegría que Jah te da
Si sientes que la luna es tu fiel compañía
Y la por que todo das no te supo valorar
Y te invade la nostalgia y las noches se hacen largas
Y el pecho te quiere estallar y no sabes si reír o llorar

Esta es para salir de la tristeza
No te amargues, hay que mover bien las piezas
Llego la hora de mostrar tu entereza
No mostres pereza vos sos de la realeza
Vamos arriba gente divina
Si estas muy triste ven a bailar a mi esquina
Y si sentís mucha melancolía porque
el amor de tu vida te dejo el otro día
Usa tu humildad, usa tu sinceridad
Y si es un amor verdadero volverá
Y si no vuelve mejor para vos
I-Nesta decíselo!

Deja atrás todo lo malo, porque es ley natural
Que el sol saldrá de nuevo nadie lo puede evitar
Saldrá para ti y también para mi
Saldrá para ti y también para mi
Tal vez cuando despiertes todo sea diferente
Y lo que ayer te puso triste en tu corazón ya no existe más
Y todo vuelve a su lugar
El amor que se fue volando
En otra persona ha de llegar
En otra persona ha de llegar

Toma impulso, toma confianza
Y antes que todo nunca pierdas la esperanza
Se fue la malaria y vino la bonanza
Muestra tu escencia si tenes sustancia
Ponete firme, parate de tus rodillas
Termino el sueño, se acabo la pesadilla
Verdadero amor, no como las capillas
Te va a hacer sentir de mil maravillas
Vas a ver que te vas a levantar y te vas a dejar de llorar
No va a haber tiempo para lamentar
lo que el pasado te quiso quitar
Si es verdad la noche trajo un nuevo día
Más amor y más alegría
No es un capricho ni una fantasía
Todo se arregló como te decía

Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire
Toda mi gente con las manos en el aire

Deja atrás todo lo malo, porque es ley natural
Que el sol saldrá de nuevo, nadie lo puede evitar
Saldrá para ti y también para mi
Saldrá para ti y también para mi
