Igbo term or phrase: Gi Na-ebia
Im trying to figure out the pronounciation and meaning for this song: Nigerian Chant - Donald Malloy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSMbF9hcqG0)

I believe it to be Igbo:

"Munsq Ani Na/anabata Gi Na-ebia
Anabata Gi Na-ebia

Gi Na-nzuko
Gi Na-nzuko"

Huge thanks to Chica Ozojie for the translation/correction. You would be "almost" proud of me, I pulled out a dictionary and came up with this correction: Mmụọ nsọ anyi na ịanabata Gị
(ịanabata Gị n'ebe a)
Mmụọ nsọ anyi na ịanabata Gị
(ịanabata Gị ná nzukọ)

So not too far off and better then the sorce material I got from the artist's CD liner notes!!
