A SPOKEN-WORD POETRY PIECE BY EFE PAUL AZINO

I know a people
an ancient collection of tribes
histories stretching from parchments in Timbuktu
to groundnut pyramids and Nok art
A civilization that spawned magic from bronze
we were kings and queens once
Before Lugard or Mungo Park
Hold your history books to the light
check the facts
How we invented language to teach wisdom
and medicine to heal ourselves
There was an empire in Oyo,
republics in the East, warriors in the South,
and every hamlet in the North had its sage –
A people of culture and HERITAGE
reclaiming their civilization from the sea of self-doubt
one idea at a time
every river feeding an ocean like believers to a dream
Every legacy has its story,
and yours is about to BEGIN
