Do you know how many nights I’ve spent twisting your English off my tongue? I do not take pride in your English. I want to stumble on my words. I want to speak with an accent so thick that it requires silence. I want you to struggle to understand me. Realize your English is not superior. Your English does not equate intelligence. Do not compliment me on how well I have accepted colonization. I do not want your pat on the back. I was forced to learn this language. I didn’t choose to. Your English disconnects me from my people. I am deaf to my own sacred language because of your English.
Your English has done nothing for me.
Nigeria is an absolute and unparalleled mess - 70% of your country is in abject poverty and you wanna celebrate having the highest GDP in Africa?
You’re blaming decades of infrastructural, political and moral failure on the devil and spiritual warfare?
Mismanagement of potential on an epic scale folks…
