MBAANA By TESSY ANIESI
Mbaana is the highest form of Gratitude in an Indigenous Dialect of Anam People, of Anambra West in Anambra State – West Africa.
I was inspired to sing Mbaana as a way to express the deep feeling of my gratitude towards the people that have helped me in all endeavors of life.
My growing up, ventures, aspirations, enterprises was never matched with a befitting provision to carry out the mission but People always come through for me.
Where others may thread unsuccessfully, even though I had a very tough time growing up, things that were meant to break me, I see someone come through to the rescue, and I will succeed.
This song is also a kind of teaching at the same time. The teaching in there is that, most of us always thank God for everything which is right, but in our career contents especially gospel musicians,we so much neglect to appreciate the Vessels God used in bringing our prayers to materialize.
By Thanking the People for what they did which are good, we automatically are glorifying the Invisible God who enabled them to do that.
That is why If you listen to the song Mbaana, You will find out the blend of this expression in English, Central Igbo and landed in Anam Deep Dialect, You see I appreciated the people who help destinies, on the add-lips, I praised God and asked Him to bless these helpers….and towards the end, all glory was returned to the Most High God through and through, in the space of “Principal (God) of principalities (gods/men).
Mbaana is the only expression greater and deeper than THANKS.
If something great is done for you and you feel Thanks is not enough, MBAANA is right.
