BRIDGE
“Soldier come, soldier go…the barrack will remain” is a popular Nigerian, perhaps African adage that means people are the only mobile elements. She has used it to tell the African people abroad that the home [barrack] will remain, as they are leaving the continent [i.e. soldier go], others are settling in it [i.e. soldier come]

It's an African one Yemi Alade Soldier come, soldier go Your home na your home Irreplaceable
It's an African one
Yemi Alade
Soldier come, soldier go
Your home na your home
Irreplaceable
 
 
It's an African one Yemi Alade Soldier come, soldier go Your home is your home Irreplaceable
It's an African one
Yemi Alade
Soldier come, soldier go
Your home is your home
Irreplaceable
