Above is a recorded performance of Isiqomqomane, a Zulu song about courtship.
Essentially, the song is about a young man who tries to persuade a young lady to court with him. The lady is reluctant, and shows this clearly. The man’s response to the lady’s rejection demonstrates great ambition without any form or demonstration of deterrence. The song is about persuasion.
