Ghanama Lyrics by Makhadzi in English Translation:

What does Ghanama or Ganama Mean?

Ganama is a Tshivenda or Venda word which means “to lay on your back because you are tired or you fell”. Other languages use “ghanama” instead of ganama. Please remember it is not: “ghanima”

So, the song means my love life, as well as my work life, are totally hopeless.
