Thank you @UliTerhile ❤️🇳🇬🙏🏾🇬🇧👆🏾💗 for your insight.
I was recently challenged to dumb down my androgynous roots, looks and gestures for a slice of the African Music Market, because of #prejudice and #ignorance:
Even thou, “Osumare”, (Meaning Rainbow) the African God that balances feminine and masculine energy in African Folk History, is a Yoruba Deity, (in my tribe), the personification of the lgbtqia+ appropriated in the west. This God lives 6 months as a male and 6 months as a female.
Explain the concept of why, where, and how did Africans get so mis-educated in our own truths substituting it for sentiments of white JESUS.
Am not promoting idol worshiping but hoping you get my logic and point here. Each to their own belief systems. Let me know your thoughts. Uri makes a great point, on this questionable insanity.
“Let’s not get ourselves confused here, not all Afrikans are controlled, but majority of the masses.
We have to ask ourselves about what brought this control? Who are the ones been controlled? And how can this control be reversed?
Afrika is suffering from cultural control and not until we realize this fact collectively, our liberation struggle would remain an illusion.
Afrika was the first place of civilization before the invasion of Afrika by Europeans and Arabs.
Neo-colonialization is real and still at play.
Afrika must trace its steps back to the roots spiritually, culturally, traditionally, politically and socially for the seeked liberation to be achieved” – Uli Terhile, Facebook
I couldn’t agree more. I don’t have all the answers but this resonates with me as part of the challenges faced by Africans coming from mis education and mental slavery.
This is not about black vs white for me. It’s about good vs evil. So, I will always endeavour to be authentic and not a hypocrite coupled With LOVE AND Passion, to teach as best as I can.
Present yourself authentically. Nobody can call you a hypocrite. Until that day, you are.
I have no desires to misrepresent myself any time soon, cuz that would be incredulous artistry when I know the truth.
Only the truth will set you and I free. I know the truth hurts, but the lie is worse. The truth is always found in love. Love is the truth. It precipitates with self love.
I bet you good money, many black and white folks would not know this. I bet you too, many Yoruba, Africans; would not know this too, which is even more shocking .. ‘
But some Africans are still bowing down to a statue of a dead white woman called, ‘Mary’, asking her, to pray for us, Africans. What can a dead statue do for you? I beg your pardon.
Don’t come out here and be talking about holding your tongue. If you and your ancestors held their tongues you and them will still be in shackles as slaves. There’d be no educators, humanitarians and peace makers. Leave me out of that cognitive dissonance.
Stop demonising people who are different with your ignorance ..’ – #In14Ways
Take all that self hate from unprocessed anger, trauma and prejudices to a psychologist. Tis the season to be jolly. I’m not about that ignorance ..’
No biggots allowed ..’ – Aremuorin ❤️🇬🇧👆🏾🇳🇬🙏🏾
