Naga Manu, the song is in the Nagamese language. Nagamese is the native language of the people of Nagaland, India.
The title “Naga Manu” means “Naga People”, here Naga refers to an ethnic group of Native people from Nagaland. Nagas are found in the region of Northeast India and Northwestern Myanmar.
Coming back to the song, ” Naga Manu is the second song from the upcoming album of Moko Koza. Moko Koza is a rapper/artist from Nagaland and is quite popular in Northeastern Hip-Hop Music.
Team Behind The Work:
The song is written and performed in the Nagamese language by Moko Koza. Produced by Rylo, Naga Beatz, INA, and shot by Kohdi Jings. It is mixed and mastered at Infinity Inc. Studio.
What is the song about?
Naga Manu is a satirical rap, talking about the regular life of the Naga People while highlighting the major issues and problems that are faced by the People of Nagaland.
The song begins with the intro of Moko Koza as a Naga, rapping about the place where he was born and about the brotherhood among the Naga Community, and how good they take care of and support the women.
Origin and Food Habits of Nagaland:
He also mentioned the local foods they eat and invites the viewers/people to come and try his Naga foods. They will be surviving the authentic curry of Bamboo shoots and fermented soya beans. There has been much misinformation outside the state about the food habits of the Naga People. So satirically Moko Koza said he doesn’t know what you think about our foods but it’s not your business what we eat here. We come from a generation of headhunters and we are proud to be called Naga. I am a Naga Manu.
Problems/issues in the community:
Then further in the song, he talked about the problems in society, and how people are fighting with each other for land, becoming slaves to the money power. Also how the people get bribed with money during election season and after the election gets over, once again they face bad living situations. Still, they don’t understand and are stuck in this loop of bribed money for short-term happiness.
Alcohol in Nagaland:
Another major issue is Alcohol, which is prohibited in Nagaland but still, people are getting it (illegally) from Assam. This is not contributing to the economy of Nagaland.
The song tries to show the reality of the society and aims to promote the local dialect and bring the community close.
