Emerson: The Clannish and Tribal Bigot
Posted by psychology Professor / Side Judge on October 31, 2009 at 21:35:17:
Emerson began working on harming the reputation of the All People Congress just one year into their regaining of political power in Sierra Leone. He is part of that clannish group of political bigots who call themselves diehard SLPP Mendes. He is as arrogant as the rest of the crude bunch with no perception of the current facts. Why would he end his song with “This nor to tin for laugh ’bout o Ee jus look lek the way wea tin dae go so, If ee nor change; 2012, 12 o clock sharp, We dae wap!”.
I am flabbergasted that the once
highly respected Sierra Leone’s artist will lower his talent to endorse the
absurd ambition of the limping SLPP to bounce back 2012, 12 o clock sharp.
Perhaps, him and his clannish group have failed to recognize Sierra Leone today,
is not the same as Sierra Leone in 1996, and 2007. This unqualified baloney of
2012 sharp 12 is driving this desperate bunch to foster foolish and harmful
endeavors; such as Emerson’s asymmetric song.
Sierra Leoneans want peace and not war or the revolution you and your clan are trumping. Sing about development and not try to raise doubts about the Bumbuna accomplishments of President Ernest Bai Koroma and his government. A better alternative could be, for you to forget about the music business for now because all your songs have the same rhythm with slight variations here and there. You have lost your originality and creativity and now trying to force words into a tune without allowing the harmony to flow out of you. It is categorically inappropriate to abuse the current image of Sierra Leone, simply because you want to carry out the will of your people.
Emerson said, “Yes, some man say den nor go love me coz me mot sharp lek Bob
Marley but ar get for say watin me people want me for say” Am I the only one who
heard him right? Nevertheless, I have to say what my people want me to say.
Therefore, the song is not your original voice, but an articulation of the
directives given to you by your clannish tribesmen and women. How foolish of you
to lose your independent voice in order to please a disgruntled minority in
today’s Sierra Leone? Dis nor to tin for laugh:- Bounce Off Emerson Bozo and go
tell the other dogmatists in your tribal clique that 2012 sharp 12 will meet
them weeping due to their unrivaled defeat by the All People Congress. I hope
you have the courage enough to sing about SLPP’s trounce after sharp 12 in 2012.
Ndi-Leh-Lee Emerson Bozo. Yes Peace out Emerson Bozo.
