Ngoma ni Mzito literally translates to ”the drum is heavy”. When we go to the dance, it is easy to make our way to the dance, but coming back from the dance is very laborious. A man who goes to drink, makes his way very easily to the pub, but once he has had his drink, making his way home becomes very difficult.
The song is metaphorical about consequences to our actions. It is easy to get into situations but the consequences might turn out to be too heavy to bear.
