The power of the word is immeasurable and always immediate. I fancy myself as a philosopher of the African kind. The contemporary African has always been misunderstood, misinterpreted and sometimes ignored even when there is much to celebrate and cherish. A few words often convey so much. So many words at other times are such a bore and convey so little. I want to use my blog as my platform :to take my place in the grand scheme of things.
