A message to Italians, words pronounced hesitantly but no less clearly and directly for that.
When Amadou decided to record a song in Italian, he wrote the words down, choosing them and studying them one by one, because he had important things to say.
I left my country because they wanted to kill me. He wants to clarify that Italy is a rather random point of arrival, a consequence of very difficult situations. The journey has not damaged his dignity (
I am African, proud to be black), and not his courtesy either (
I am grateful to everyone who has helped me). But he leaves us with a bitter reminder on which to reflect:
there are wars, there are too many wars.
