The Annals Of An Invisible People


Guy Scott is their Obama,
Adichie is their Emily Bronte,
Dangote is their Bill Gates

Garri is their bread,
Palm wine is their beer,
Gin is their vodka,

Lagos, is their New York,
Abidjan, their Paris,

The war in Mali? France’s Afganistan
The uprising in Burkina Faso? their Arab Spring,
Ebola, the ISIS of their infectious diseases,

Thomas Sankara is their Che Guevara,
Mo Abudu is their Oprah,
Mandela is their Ghandi,

These are in part,
The annals of the world’s invisible people.
