The Saga of the Returnee

Yeah, I was watchin the Saga of the Returnee by Kwaku Sintim Misa aka KSM. I was blown away! I also jus found out that this was the biggest theatrical play ever seen in Ghana. Man, this guy provided social commentary, current events, seriousness, humor, feeling, truth & a whole slew of dynamics that jus boggle the mind. I've been sayin 4 the past few years that the best way 2 convey a message to the masses is thru humor & so don't underestimate the power of comedians. 1 of my fave comedians is George Carlin not jus bcuz he spoke it but also bcuz he spit fire when he spoke it. He died last year & when I needed 2 hear truth & laugh at the same time, I went 2him & others like him. But we here talkin about KSM & pretty much, if U wanna know what Ghana is like, U should check him out on www.youtube.com & see what I'm sayin & if not, allow me to provide a quote from his profile on www.prempeh.org/spotlite/ksm.html. It says that, "KSM stands t…

What Ghana Needs

Ayo, it's dat Blak dude again & after being here 4 a year & 2 months, assessments of Ghana must come 4ward. As an Afrikan & a concerned 1 at that, if I left Ghana & didn't give y'all my oponion, U wouldn't respect me. And if U don't wanna know this, sign outta this site NOW! Boy have I learned alot this year & I hope that I've grown in a way dat I would have never grown if I din't live here this long. Bcuz of my LUV 4 Ghana, Ghanians & Afrika, please allow me 2 share with U on how we can improve this very gifted special place. I know dat alot of y'all is prolly thinkin dat I was down on Ghana but wat da hell do U know? Anyhoo, let's be done with it. What Ghana needs is 1. Closed Gutters:Open Gutters need 2 be shut as it exposes rottin & putrid garbage 2 our noses, eyes & senses. As well, the peepo who sell by the roadside are exposed 2 the fumes & this can weaken those with compromised immune systems. As well, we …

2000 Seasons

Wow, da Blaksmith is reviewing books now? Maybe! This book is actually hurting my head & I had to stop reading it. HEAVY is da only word 2 describe it. I have 2 say dat so far, this is da HEAVIEST book that I've ever read & it's written by a Ghanian named, Ayi Kwei Armah. Are we really in da year of 2010 yet though & if so, what of it? U see, time is artificial as a day is really 23:45 & not a whole 24 hours. What do U think leap year is 4? Time is artificial & artificial cannot stand against real. Using a metaphor from da book, it's like water going into da desert 2 die. U see, most of us have 4gotten the way & 2 boot, we see things so much the way they are NOW that we don't even know that we are living in the falsest of realities. With 2010 around da corner, look 4 things 2 get 2 be VERY INTERESTING! Economies collapsing, Swine Flu & Climategate & if U don't kno what dat 1 is, U need 2 look it up. Da US & alot of other countri…
