Nigeria, Country of 200 Million FOOLS - A Lagbaja Story

"Undoubtedly, we the people are to blame for our woesThe "leaders" have discovered that they can get away with anything... ANYTHING!Because of our docile mumurity (sheep behaviour) as uncritical and comatose minionsBecause we never stand up to them and demand probityThat is why Obasanjo single handedly chose Yar'Adua and JonathanAnd led us like sheep into this turmoilHow blessed a nation we could have beenHad he instead used his great cunning for the benefit of NigeriaThe good things he did, his anointed successors destroyedObasanjo used his own hands to destroy what he worked hard to build... Sad testimony... Bad legacy... Sad autobiographyYou may not be richBut your well being is as important as theirs and their children'sAs a human being, you have rightsAs a citizen of Nigeria, you have rightsWhile giving utmost respect to our leadersAnd acting with all sense of humility as dictated by our cultureWe should still demand and insist on justice and equityAh...ah... We are better than thisIt should be obvious to all now...You, like me, may be smallBut even the mightily powerful "big man" is mortal dustFood for worms...No man is God!"

Death Thou Art Cruel! | Solace When Going Through Loss of a Loved One

Nothing prepares you for the loss of a loved one.
It's a very dark place to be, time almost stops, the world almost seize to rotate. 
The void left drains one from within like a black hole.
Leg gives way on solid ground, solid rock starts to feel like shifting sand.
You feel like you are sinking on solid ground like it is possible to drown on top of a mountain.
Sometimes the heart is filled with hurt, sometimes it's broken and filled with void.
We seek and find solace in our faith and the hope that we will meet again to part no more.
To all those going through the agony of losing loved ones, my thoughts are with you and I pray and hope that we all find that solace that our hearts desire.

Here is a poem about DEATH!

DEATH thou art cruel!
You roam around casting your shadow,
Looking for who to consume.

DEATH thou art cruel!
You take one away,
Then break the hearts of many. 

DEATH thou art cruel!
You cut short what could have been,
And leave voids that can’t be filled.

My heart is heavier,
I take my time to do everything.

My breaths are deeper,

And I take extra care when I talk

Just because I don’t want to hurt you.

The time goes by,

And it’s like the world is coming to an end.

The sun rises and sets,

The day increases in number,
Yet, it’s like things are not changing.
The world is spinning so fast without a destination,
But I have a determination
That will soon become a manifestation.
I’m reaching out for your heart,
And all I need is your love, trust, kindness and care.
The depth of the ocean can’t be compared to how
Deeply touched I am by your love.

The heights of the mountain won’t stop me from reaching out to you,
The distance to the sun won’t stop me from pursuing your love.

We went from 
Breaking all bounds,
Defiling all odds.

We went from 
Creating memories,
Making long term plans.

We went from 
The boundaries we broke overturned,
The odds now  turned against us.

We went from 
in a lifetime.
Created memories fading by the day,
All the made plans now unmade,
Deafening silence is all that remains.

Yoruba Challenge - Do You Think You Can Read Yoruba Language?

I wrote a new poem and asked my wife to read it first as usual (role of number one fan).

The poem is a mix of English and Yoruba, a true reflection of oral communication in our household.  
The moment she started reading, I realised how difficult it can be for a fluent Yoruba speaker like my wife to read Yoruba (I'd probably struggle if I have to read something in Yoruba that I didn't write). This led to an epiphany, the birth of #KelzYorubaChallenge. 

The aim of this challenge is to get as many people as possible to read the Yoruba language and share with others. Culture preservation is essential right? Just like the colourful culture displayed in many Nigerian traditional weddings you've seen, Yoruba languge is such a beautiful language and as a poet and author, I appreciate the language even more.

If you will like to take part in this challenge and join me to spread what I hope will be an awakening moment, you can follow these simple steps:

  •  Record yourself reading the poem below: 

Title: Life is a Beach (Written by Kelvin Obareti)

Life is a BEACH.
Classical ELEMENTS in sync,
A beauty to behold.

EARTH be kind to me,

Ilẹ Okẹrẹ, a f’ọkọ yẹri, alapo ika, 
Ma te ori ẹ, ma ṣe ohun rere.

WATER quench my thirst.

Omi la bu wẹ, Omi wẹ mi mọ
Omi la bu mu, ongbẹ Jinna s’ẹnu mi

AIR give me life,

Afẹfẹ o ni fẹ, ko ma kan Igi oko l’ara, 
afẹfẹ, fẹ ire ko mi l’ara.

LIGHT illuminate my soul.

Tan imọlẹ rẹ, Kin r’ona gba
Ki Ona la, kin l’aluyo.

Chichen Itza | Walk around El Castillo | Pyramids

Enjoy as we take you on a journey around the impressive Chichen Itza (El Castillo). This is 1 of the 7 wonders of the modern world.
While the world was immersed in the Middle Ages, the Mayans built this majestic city, primary political centre of the Mayan Region. Its icon #ElCastillo, a pyramid dedicated to the god Kukuclan, is a testimony of this important culture's impressive mathematical and astronomical precision so important that it is named by UNESCO as 1 of the 7 wonders of the world.
The 91 steps on each side of the Pyramid and 1 on the altar add up to 365 steps, the number of days in 1 year.

Enjoy the video of the walkaround below:
