So you fly back to your continent to talk about real African issues, but as soon as you open your mouth someone will say “you Nigerians like to act like you know everything … so dominating … too loud.”
So you keep quiet and run back to your country … to Lagos where you lived your entire life … but as you begin speaking on social issues like lack of light, bad roads, poverty and other issues someone will use style to remind you that you are Igbo…that Lagos and especially Nigeria is not for you, that Nigeria once fought against your people in the Biafra war.
So you run back to East…you open your mouth to say “ndi igbo kedu” but before you finish your sentence someone shouts “mechie onu gi … ndi delta igbo…” with a long hiss … because you are not really from the East. You are Delta-Igbo…that race of people that are not authentic enough to be Igbo or central enough to be Delta … so you are stuck in a racial quandary… You are like wtf am I?
But you know who you are … you are a freaking human being. And you will speak on whatever the heck you want to talk about as long as it fucking affects you. From police brutality in America to Corruption issues in Africa to Light issues in Lagos… because life is too damn complex to listen to everyone’s opinion on your race!
