Was wafting through youtube in search of entertainment and came acorss the late great Lucky Dube. All the irony of posting music by someone murdered in this country , in the aim of celebrating how wonderful this country is, is not lost on me.
But Lucky Dube was just far too brilliant and wonderful a man to allow his legacy to twisted and distorted into any message other than love and redemption.
So once again...I urge you to visit the music of mister Dube. And hopefully find a little of the message of tolerance and love I do.
(That ones a little personal and probably not representative of his best work)
I couldn't be more invested in hope, care and love than I am with this stupid quirky country. It's a wonderful way to live your life : To fight against the odds. To piss in the mouths of gawking cynics. To align yourself with the hapless and hopeless. To build something from nothing. Bury me right here in Africa. Beautiful , complex , aching Africa.
A long time ago I failed to launch a forum to discuss these things. I thought I would give it another go. So why not sign up here and let's get some momentum going where we can talk about the state of this country. Put it up on your site/blog etc.
