[tab id=1]Cities have names!
Tshwane, Polokwane and Naspoti
Towns and streets are named and renamed
What is yours?

Africans are called with African names
What is your African name?
When will you be names? Like all Africans

Are you a Mark of subjugation?
Are you an ideology of Grobler?
Who confine you to his name!
Anglicized you to suit whims and fancies.

It’s a decade of change
Why you are not named and renamed

It is a season of changes
Get yourself African name!
Africans are named After African[/tab]
