Sound Sultan - Area
I have just fallen in love with this song. I have never been a fan of this artist but i was at Game a few weeks ago and this song was playing and i actually stopped to listen to it and could not believe how pure and beautiful it was. I asked who the artist was and voila.
I guess i also feel so strongly about this song because i made the decision to come back home and i have to control myself when talking to friends abroad that swear up and down that they are NEVER coming home. I want to scream at them and i just dont get it. I always control myself though because i realise that people should be able to make choices that fit their lives. I rejoice in every returnee (as i call myself) and am so proud to give them the schpill about home and where to go and companies and everything. So far, my brother has taken that mad step and as we speak, he has met with 4 companies all eager to have his talents. I have a pretty close friend in New Jersey who God willing will be making this move in September or so and another friend in the UK who will be home to stay when she comes for the holidays.
I look around when i go out and i see my age mates and people in my generation having a good time. I meet with clients and i recognise people i know or used to know. I find out the ages of the entrepreneurs or leaders of certain organisations and i see only 5 - 10 years that separate us. I am excited about this. Sure my wonderful, raped Nigeria has issues - a lot of it self inflicted but i REFUSE to speak of her as a lost cause, i REFUSE to join the many that say derogatory things about her. I get defensive when some say she will never rise. I have worked in 2 countries and i have never felt as much pride and a sense of ownership as i do here.
This is my home. This is where i believe i will fulfill the destiny that God has for me. This is where i can make a difference. These people are my brothers and sisters. And i believe in the words of Maya Angelou - "Still i rise"
Enjoy the song.
