  • Description

    Princess Magogo sings a love song: when the lover is far away the woman wishes he would come to the gate of her home to meet her. Once the man has come she would call the dogs to chase him away, the man would have to run and that would please her. On another hand, If she could not be reunited with her lover she would hang herself. Accompanied with a guitar.
