I'm impressed by President Obasanjo's dignity and restraint. The lawyer questioning him just muddies the water by giving his useless opinion rather than ascertaining the facts. This lawyer should go back to law school. His attitude is patronising to say the least.
Great vision! I'm impressed.
If he sticks to what he knows, not when your lord and master strays from his chosen field, then he starts to look stupid. Can I ask why you chose to be anonymous!
This song was ad-libbed live at the original Afro-Spot later called Kakadu when a fight broke out while Fela's band was playing. In those days the breweries charged deposits for drink bottles. They were smashing bottles and this was Fela's response to those ingrates who didn't appreciate the music and would rather fight over some woman. You can google Bodederek for more info.
Tupac's feel came from his passion. A true artist in every sense of the world.
That is a myth. Obama is president of the US and he has not created any chaos. The chaos that is Nigeria comes from the citizens being gullible and naive that the people with the worst characteristics somehow emerge as leaders. We as Nigerians have accepted corruption as part of our identity although most Nigerians are honest, law abiding and God fearing. I pray that one day the bad apples who are in the minority, are taken out of the barrel.
Kelvin is an example of the millions of talented kids all over Africa (not just Sierra Leone) who have exceptional ability that could take Africa out of the rut. Unfortunately foreign aid is controlled and disbursed by the people who are least able to help these kids to develop their individual talents. The Sierra Leonian government has a duty to help set up institutions like Fourah Bay college that educated a generation of prominent Africans in the 1950's, 60's and 70's.
The sound guys need to go back to college.
I learn't to play by ear and still envy those who learn the orthodox way. My love of the instrument was the only force. No money, no guitar, no encouragement from my family. Learn anyway you can, your fingers will remember the notes, if you play all the time.
