"Am proud to be a bembenian,, Keep it cool kigusile..."
Here's some information from
"Bembe (Ibembe) is a Bantu language of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Western Tanzania. According to Ethnologue, it forms a dialect continuum with the Lega language through Mwenga Lega. It has no connection with the Bembe (Kibembe) language of the Republic of Congo."...

Example #5: Yesu ni Mungu by Mungu Jakisa Jackson

MUNGU JAKISA JACKSON, Published on Jul 16, 2015
I've not been able to find information online about Mungu Jakisa Jackson and his group. Notes for two other videos that I've found for this singer indicate that the songs are preformed in the Congolese beat. For that scant reason, I'm guessing that this vocalist and his group are from the Congo. Please confirm or correct this information. Thanks!

Thanks for visting pancocojams.

  1. Mungu Jackson's song says:
    They tell me Jesus is a European (white man)
    I say no. Jesus is God.
    Jesus is God of the Europeans,
    Jesus is God of the Africans,
    Jesus is God of the Nigerians,
    They tell me Jesus is a Jew
    I say no. Jesus is God.
    Jesus is God of the Europeans,
    Jesus is God of the Africans,
    Jesus is God of the Nigerians,
    Jesus is the true Saviour
    We praise him
    We worship him
    for he is good
    He is good to me
    let us worship him
    he is all powerful
    Jesus is God
    (Of various listed countries)
    Our all powerful Saviour
    He can raise us all
    He delivered us from evil
    He will raise us all like those who have been victorious
    He defeated Satan
    We will rejoice with him
    Singing loudly
    Our God is able
    Jesus is God (of various listed countries)
