A different kind of grain.

When you put on the television and you find a different kind of music than the one you are used to. You know that kind that it’s fans always say, ‘message!’ thats when you realise that this is just the kind of change you needed albeit for a while. It’s when you realise that Chinua Achebe’s quote was so true and wholesome.
‘A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.’
Gathering around a fire with friends, exchanging growing up tales and hustling tales as you listen to Lucky Dube’s, ‘war and crime,’ as the fire crackles and the night fades away while the moon continues to wax in its nightly glory, making the night pass in a blink of an eye, sort of like Albert Einstein’s, ‘theory of relativity.’
This is the change we need, it’s like we are navigating on a different gradient, a different kind of terrain and the world has suddenly stopped rotating on its own axis. Yeah that’s when you realise that it’s the simple things that matter and like in that everyday’s ad, it’s days like today that are, ‘simply the best.’
As for now, lemmi play a different role,’traffic cop.’ 🤣
