Akwa Ibom, My Akwa Ibom

The spirit of the sun
Shinning in the darkness
For the old and for the young

I greet you my beloved
The womb of my birth
Lying still and gentle
As big as the earth

Akwa Ibom, my Akwa Ibom
I hear you from afar
Your children here and there
Are shinning like the star

The sky right above you
Is left for you to fill
Not with birds and mountains, but
With your sons rising like the hills

Akwa Ibom, my Akwa Ibom
Let’s play our drums for you
I wish you love and peace
And a happy birthday to you
