Omawumi ft. 2Face Idiba - What a Bang bang

Omawumi,
(Tell Them, tell ) 2 Baba in the building,
Thank you very much, Danke Schön, Asante sana..

Verse (Omawumi)
I don’t wanna be a guest in my home (i be oo)
I no want to dey feel like I be stranger with my very own (at all)
I want my people back at home to live in peace and unity o (na so, na so)
But them wuru wuru people dey feed on we like bread and tea 

Coda
Dem dey claim diplomatic immunities
On top of the civil political ingenuity
And them people dem using spirituality
Like a mask to hide their anxiety 

In case you no notice
There’s a guy on vacation called justice
When he approaches
You’ll be mumbling words like
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Chorus
Monkey work, Baboon chop
Fire in the jungle
What a bang bang, What What a bang bang (x2)

E be like dem don see monkey
God forbid I no be suffer head
One day (this country go better)
Na me and you (go do am together)
Coz if we no try (our people go suffer)
And wuru wuru people oo

Coda 
Dem dey claim diplomatic immunities
On top of the civil political ingenuity
And them people dem using spirituality
Like a mask to hide their anxiety

In case you no notice
There’s a guy on vacation called justice
When he approaches
You’ll be mumbling words like
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Chorus
Monkey work Baboon chop
Fire in the jungle
What a bang bang, What What a bang bang (x2)

Stop all corruption of yesterday

What Russian President Vladmir Putin said about Crimea crisis.

 Dear friends, we have gathered here today in connection with an issue that is of vital, historic significance to all of us. A referendum was held in Crimea on March 16 in full compliance with democratic procedures and international norms.
More than 82% of the electorate took part in the vote. Over 96% of them spoke out in favour of reuniting with Russia. These numbers speak for themselves.

 To understand the reason behind such a choice it is enough to know the history of Crimea and what Russia and Crimea have always meant for each other.
President Putin said the Crimea vote numbers "speak for themselves"
Everything in Crimea speaks of our shared history and pride. This is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptised. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilisation and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. The graves of Russian soldiers whose bravery brought Crimea into the Russian empire are also in Crimea.

This is also Sevastopol - a legendary city with an outstanding history, a fortress that serves as the birthplace of Russia's Black Sea Fleet. Crimea is Balaklava and Kerch, Malakhov Kurgan and Sapun Ridge. Each one of these places is dear to our hearts, symbolising Russian military glory and outstanding valour.
Crimea is a unique blend of different peoples' cultures and traditions. This makes it similar to Russia as a whole, where not a single ethnic group has been lost over the centuries. Russians and Ukrainians, Crimean Tatars and people of other ethnic groups have lived side by side in Crimea, retaining their own identity, traditions, languages and faith.

Incidentally, the total population of the Crimean peninsula today is 2.2 million people, of whom almost 1.5 million are Russians, 350,000 are Ukrainians who predominantly consider Russian their native language, and about 290,000-300,000 are Crimean Tatars, who, as the referendum has shown, also lean towards Russia. more here

Animals in Ghana : AFRICAN CIVET.

Whiles traveling form Saltpond in the central region to the capital Accra of Ghana. The driver stopped in one of the towns en-route Accra. Two young men approached our car holding two of these animals, obviously on sale.

I was shocked because i thought they were from the family of raccoons which are found largely in Europe and the North Americas. After posting in a Facebook group, i finally got the name of the animal. An African spotted CIVET.

They are mostly nocturnal mammals. They feed on small vertebrates, invertebrates, eggs, carrion and vegetable matter. They are capable of taking on poisonous invertebrates (such as the millipedes most other species avoid) and snakes.

Civets have a broadly cat-like general appearance, though the muzzle is extended and often pointed, rather like that of a mongoose

They  produce a musk (also called civet) highly valued as a fragrance and stabilizing agent for perfume. Both male and female civets produce the strong-smelling secretion, which is produced by the civet's perineal glands. 

The musk is harvested by either killing the animal and removing the glands, or by scraping the secretions from the glands of a live animal. The latter is the preferred method today.

Civets are endangered species and can also be used as pets.

The African Spirits

Even in those centuries, they abhorred  corrupt people,
Here we are, filled with all the Godly people,
Whiles toddlers and infants die of malaria and measles.
Wondering how the Spirits will render us clean of these malady,
Wondering how the spirits shall lead us to Electricity and Water.

Here we are, sitting in abundance and shame,
Our amulets began to wane when we threw our hands inane,
We are back to centuries afore when The vultures landed ashore,
O sour memory of extorted kisses,
Promises mutilated by daily whisperings,
Known men, we never really knew,
To our satisfaction, we christen them; Spirits.
-Kwesi Moore

Once while reading an article from an online outlet, i read a post where an African Bishop blames the woes of the land to Spirits. I was a bit upset but on a second thought acknowledged the sense in what he said. Truly, the African leaders are Spirits. The poem was a 15minutes thought with two lines inspired by David Diop's, The Vulture.
