I AM KALABARI

Like a shoulder
I carry my etibo
In a word
I represent oyibo
You never see me without my njirre…

I am Kalabari
My words step like the mkpara
As proud Ekine Sekibo..
I show
When my culture show

I am Kalabari
Yes
I had hospitality like a decent meal
Mountainous heap of onunu and fresh fish
show the kalabarism in me
Like our epitee to our akara‘koro

Kalabari
We stand in irudugo
Isam fucos is Kalabari
Ingbe and Ofingor speak Kalabari

I am Kalabari
My language is me
Kalabari is the name.
