This song was recorded over a year ago but I do not think it is more
relevant to our nation than now. I personally lost 2 close friends and
several known people in the Dana aircraft that crashed in Lagos on Sunday
the 3rd of June
The song was written four years before it was recorded. At a point in my
life when it was really difficult to make ends meet. Those were days I
will walk distances to save N5.00 so to buy a sachet of “pure water” to
drink Garri.
Those days were real to me. The lack was real. But then I will not let
anything take my praise away. My expectation was great. More real than
what I was experiencing, my hope for a better tomorrow overwhelms the lack
I was going through
On Sunday June 3rd, some 153 very important people left us, a 153 that
linked the whole of the country together, we did not know how closely
linked to one another we were until these 153 people let us. To the
departed, we need to let you know we love you dearly and we will miss you
all. No matter how we try, a lot of things can never be the same again
without you.
The best way to go on from here is to encourage ourselves that our friends
live on and they actually do. Let us make sure that all the dreams and
aspirations we shared together live on. They might not be here with us
physically but let them live on in our hearts. We need to see that their
hopes and desires do not die, let us work it out like we will give an
account to them when we see
The best is yet to come…if you lost a friend that left behind children,
make sure you see to it that those kids do well… that is the best that we
hope for!!
I have been to too many funerals and service of songs and you will agree
with me that all the gloomy and sad looking faces will transform to
‘normal’ once we step out of the funeral environment! Life continues…
For all of us, we definitely will miss our friends and loved ones but I
need us all to know that the best days are still ahead.
