"This song is sung by the Krobo Tribe of Ghana and the title is Awonye Nakie." -Mawuli

In the West, this song is called "A Keelie Makolay" and is sung by choruses.

Notes

Here's the westernized version of this song that Choruses sing...

A Keelie Makolay

Call:
A Keelie Makolay, mo paco meeno sway
(Makolay, do you want to come and play?)

Response:
Yeah, yeah, mo paco meeno sway.
(Yeah, yeah, I want to come and play.)

Mo paco meeno sway,
Mo paco meeno sway,
Mo paco meeno sway,
O mo paco meeno sway.

(I want to come and play,
I want to come and play,
I want to come and play,
Oh, I want to come and play.)
