In a land where all we do is eat, poverty cannot
be seen as a temporary house guest. Showing
off newly acquired Apple and Samsung
products, filling one’s kitchen cabinet with the
latest imported crockery, feeling proud to have
access to contraband goods, looking down on
the world from the lofty view of an ‘oil worker’
with a white boss.
We have been so stricken with lack and want that our definition of creativity is been shrunk to fit into a stereotype of just being different-be it productive or not, value adding or just entertaining.
We need to redefine success. Success cannot
just be tied to learning to use what has been
brought to full life by another, success needs to
be tied to bringing to life what we and others
can learn to use.
Agbe l’oba!! E je ka pada s’oko!!
