Send me lollipops
Send me rainbows
Send me dreams in the mail
I’ll be waiting But not for too long
If you ever leave my trail

I’ll be swaying, in the wind
Saying a prayer, for grace
I’ll be waiting, remember
You are always in my space

Send me flowers Send me daises
I like the smell, of red roses
When they falter Bend the hour
I suppose you know, it’s not showbiz

I’ll be swaying, in the wind
Saying a prayer, for grace
I’ll be waiting, remember
You are always in my space


Oh lawd wont you do me a miracle
I care too much for a tragic pinacle

Embrace my heart its full of you
Wont you, wont you, wont you !!!

Send me greetings, In the sunshine
I’ll unforget, to warn the rain
When charlatans Worship sun gods
I’ll pray away the migrain

Intl

Oh lawd won’t you do me a miracle
I care too much for a tragic pinacle

Embrace my heart its full of you
Wont you, wont you, wont you !!!

Send me flowers Send me daises
I like the smell, of red roses
When they falter Bend the hour
I suppose you know, it’s not showbiz .. end❤

Documentary: Migration Of African #Music ..’ – #In14Ways #Documentary #Aremuorin

Great News. The final cut is here ..’ – Aremuorin

‘Migration of African Music’ was selected to participate in the documentary film competition of Africa International Film Festival.

So blessed. My first documentary. Nearly said no. Just watched it. It’s really good ..’ I’m so proud of myself. Finally done something different for a while.

Thank you God. I see now why it was nominated for an African International Film Festival for Best Documentary & a GAB Award Finalist.

The banter and jokes man ..’ I think Alim was so effortessly magical. Would love to work with everyone again someday. Just let me learn all the tunes first, okay – jokes😂👈🏿

I was scouted at a Nollywood red carpet premier for a Nicholas Beveney’s (The Kings) movie by a director from Ben TV. Actually nearly turned him down cuz the project he sold to me originally, failed.

So, I was very sceptic and nearly pissed off, the director, of this other documentary – he brought to me.

But Temi Obadina was so Godly and patient. He taught me patience with a ‘C.A.P.I.T.A.L – P’.

Thank you Temi for working with me. Onwards up. This is just the beginning of greatness. You deserve it. Looking forward to a sequel. Amen🙏🏿👈🏿

‘Kiss Me Baby, live by Aremuorin feat. Bleed These #Colours ..’ – #In14Ways #AntiRacism #Aremuorin

Written by Aremuorin

Music Store:👇🏿👇🏿👇🏿
Kiss Me Baby on Apple 👈🏿
Kiss Me Baby on Amazon 👈🏿
Kiss Me Baby on Spotify 👈🏿

‘Kiss Me Baby’ live in collab with ‘Bleed These Colours’, a bi-racial artiste-producer, in an anti racism era, is a worthy time spent on raising awareness on anti-racism, in a world full of divisiveness. This song works well on guitar thou I wrote & arranged it on piano.

Kiss Me Baby is a cathartic layered song; softenining the volatile tone on civil rights actions of restoration and not condemnation told in a creative way, through the familiar universal language of love.

It sits well in inclusion narratives figuratively for most of our humanities from racism, to colourism, captalism, agesm, anti-semantism and etc.


Love conquers all essentially in an ideal world. Naturally, everybody needs mercy and wants to be loved ..’

The God of Love Guide Us From All Evil. #Amen ..’ – #14Ways


“There are times when a higher power speaks to us through us or though someone else.

The higher power does not come down itself – it’s just an energy that flows through us.

We can choose to resist it and we can choose to assist it”.

Either way, resistance is really only temporal, because the force within is usually greater when it’s pure and genuine.

In other words, you are wasting your time trying to impede it. Sometimes we waste our time with useless people.

People who can not add value to our life when we can be moving mountains elsewhere ..’

There’s still so much more life, in life, itself – after, life !!! The signs are not just there, for wonders. They are there for purpose, intent and information.

Life is a miracle. God is the reason. Dominion and ruler of everything. There are no chains on me. My soul is free.

My thoughts are lucid. Clean as the moon and bright as the sun ..’ Know your friends and know your enemies even more.


Salvation is not yours to give or take. Worry about your own sins. I call that repentance. If all did that the world would know love ..’

LGBTQIA Monarchs In #Africa ..’ – #In14Ways #Lgbtqia #MercyfulGrace

Written by Aremuorin

fb_img_1589821401477290442256444761386.jpgI am a Tom Girl, Nigerian origin; of the Yoruba tribe and Kingdom. Born this way, in fact my sister 7 years my junior, was a natural Tom Boy; as a child.

Imagine my horror after years of harrasment, bullying & dehumanisation for my genetic disposition as a blackman, to find out 700 years ago, my ancestors, endorsed anďrogyny & same sex relations in Africa🧐. See Osumare (3).

(The irony. How sad, when Osumare, means ‘Rainbow’ in ‘Yoruba’, where it’s from. And, ‘Osumare’, a deity (like Sango, Obatala, Yemoja, and etc) who balances feminine and masculine energy, is also an androgynous god whose signature is the rainbow. The same signature of the lgbtqia+ in the west. Yet, some of my people, still dismiss, and truely perish; for lack of knowlege).

No thanks, to white jesus and it’s phonie bolonie, idealogy to suppress, oppress and control my people, with a form of christianity, that will white wash it’s indegenious ways, customs and practices for power and control. GTFOH. The Arabs, are no saints either and just as hypocritical.

White Jesus - Aremuorin
Explain. The lift does not go up in this narrative anymore? This is deep like a rabbit hole. Do I get the sense that this was by design to subjugate Africans with mental slavery by distorting history and historical facts with a white washed religion to enventually enslave Africans, in perpetuity? Thats not fair🤦🏿‍♂️👈🏿. More @ https://Aremuorin.me

I never felt, or was made to feel different, in Africa, until my encounter with homophobia in Europe later on in life. Coloniliasm and slavery did a no on us Africans, just as much as the white Jesus they gave us. My research led me – here.

To break it down: LGBTQIA+ 

L – LESBIANS, G – GAY, B – BISEXUALS, T – TRANSGENDERED, Q – QUEER / QUESTIONING, I – INTERSECTIONS, A+ – ALLIES (& Supporters) ..’ 

Examples include:

  • One notably ‘‘explicit” Bushmen painting, which depicts African men engaging in same-sex sexual activity
  •  
  • In the late 1640s, a Dutch military attaché documented Nzinga, a warrior woman in the Ndongo kingdom of the Mbundu, who ruled as ‘‘king” rather than ‘‘queen”, dressed as a man and surrounded herself with a harem of young men who dressed as women and who were her ‘‘wives”.
  •  
  • Eighteenth century anthropologist, Father J-B. Labat, documented the Ganga-Ya-Chibanda, presiding priest of the Giagues, a group within the Congo kingdom, who routinely cross-dressed and was referred to as ‘‘grandmother”.
  •  
  • In traditional, monarchical Zande culture, anthropological records described homosexuality as ‘‘indigenous”. The Azande of the Northern Congo ‘‘routinely married” younger men who functioned as temporary wives – a practise that was institutionalised to such an extent that warriors would pay ‘‘brideprice” to the young man”s parents.
  •  
  • Amongst Bantu-speaking Pouhain farmers (Bene, Bulu, Fang, Jaunde, Mokuk, Mwele, Ntum and Pangwe) in present-day Gabon and Cameroon, homosexual intercourse was known as bian nkû”ma– a medicine for wealth which was transmitted through sexual activity between men.
  •  
  • Similarly in Uganda, amongst the Nilotico Lango, men who assumed ‘‘alternative gender status” were known as mukodo dako. They were treated as women and were permitted to marry other men.

 

  •  In the former Kingdom o Dahomey, women could be soldiers (above) and older women would sometimes marry younger women, according to anthropologist Melville Herkovits. The Baganda. King Mwanga II, the Baganda monarch, was widely reported to have engaged in sexual relations with his male subjects.

  • Jesuit working in Southern Africa in 1606 described finding ‘‘Chibadi, which are Men attired like Women, and behave themselves womanly, ashamed to be called men”.
  •  
  • In the early 17th century in present-day Angola, Portuguese priests Gaspar Azevereduc and Antonius Sequerius encountered men who spoke, sat and dressed like women, and who entered into marriage with men. Such marriages were ‘‘honored and even prized”.
  •  
  • In the Iteso communities, based in northwest Kenya and Uganda, same-sex relations existed amongst men who behaved as and were socially accepted as women.
  •  
  • Same-sex practises were also recorded among the Banyoro and the Langi.
  •  
  • In pre-colonial Benin, homosexuality was seen as a phase that boys passed through and grew out of.
  •  
  • There were practises of female-female marriages amongst the Nandi and …
  •  
  • Kisii of Kenya, as well as the
  •  
  •  
  • the Igbo of Nigeria,
  •  
  • the Nuer of Sudan and
  •  
  • the Kuria of Tanzania.
  •  
  • Among Cape Bantu, lesbianism was ascribed to women who were in the process of becoming chief diviners, known as isanuses.

The next time you harrass or gaslight any lgbqia+ person with the bible, according to white jesus, remember this post. Because, unless you are stoning all the females in your familiy who are not virgins; on their wedding nights, as the bible commands, according to white jesus, you are a flaming hypocrite. I do not suppose you have a monopoly on grace now. Do you? Realtalk ..’✍🏿

Everybody wants to be loved. Even lgbtqia+. folks. No misogyny, racism, violence or homophobia on my posts. Don’t ask for what you can’t give ..’ It’s an instant block ..’ ✍🏿🙏🏿

To the abusers –  I made no norms. I shared history. Take it to the alter and the ancestors. Not me. Truth hurts. The lie is worse.

Evil has no color and evil is smart. This post is to raise awareness and troubleshoot solutions. Not anarchy and mischief. Live and let live. I do not care what your orientation, colour, class, or creed is. Respect is a two way street.

For real thou. If you are going to be self righteous, holy and pious, why lose the argument by throwing childish tantrums when facts say otherwise?

Then, run off like a cry baby. Lets have a grown up conversation like adults.

Maybe if some of our inept African leaders were not consumed with looting the treasury with greed we might have some funds left to build schools and institutions of higher learning, for real history; unlike mental slavery from bad religion.

Very mature indeed ..’ ✍🏿🙏🏿

Structured institutional racism explained. When will it stop?

All who think #blm is hijacked are misguided. Black communities have intersections, globally; overtly or covertly.

Wakeup! If African communites could solely end racism and oppression, they would have, by now. Inept, corrupt leaders, and ignorance, stalled that.

Hence, why African communities, need allies co-operatively, in the #diaspora ..’ – #In14Ways

The Selfie That Went Viral #Aremuorin #LindaIkeji #MercyfulGrace #ICantBreathe

Written by Aremuorin

Thank you #LindaIkeji❤👈🏿.

An innocent, red carpet, selfie moment. Then, selfie went viral. I am here ..’ – Aremuorin ✍🏿🙏🏿

God instructed me to do it. I felt his presence after the ignorant fake xtains attacked me verbally at that award ceremony in London for my hair.

I was booked to perform there and someone blocked all my awards from that event. I laugh at the narcissism now. Never needed it.

It was an aftermath selfie I posted on my instagram @Aremuorin (See new IG page @IAmAremuorin). The only viral pic from the bookers event.

The event organiser, allegedly, told photographers not to take my pic on the red carpet. I was avoided like a plague on that red carpet by them.

But see how God shut them up.

Was offerred no stipends and sang on an empty stomach watching everyone after; eat, their main course, and desserts, plus drinks, while I starved my eyes out, dehydratingly.

Worst night ever booked as an artiste! God did me good ooo with justice in the end. Who said there is no God! Please, do it again; dear God. Fight for me. Shalom !!!

My red carpet selfie went viral. I will never forget. God can not be mocked.
Touch not my annointed.

Aremuorin For God❤👈🏿

Cognitive Dissonance Vs #Toxic #Masculinity: #Lgbtqia+ #Aremuorin #LHHH #MercyfulGrace

Written by Aremuorin

Love And Hippop did a great job bringing this to light. Utter respect to the producers and cast. God bless you. Miles & Milan’s relationship journey was a FIRST for “Love & Hip Hop”. #ProudTogether #LHHH

Broadly speaking, from experience. This is my take. I say this to those in the closet proverbially. So you are street, flying the hipop flag, which is about realness, but you are gay/bi, in the closet. Explain that part of the bull sh*t I missed. All that tough exterior, but broken, inside. Who is the butt of the joke? This is indicative of our black communities. It is not right. Bucking!!!I feel for you if this is who you are. Give it to God. Lives are destroyed and broken behind this fassad. It is an insidious unhealthy contradiction. Especially, if you are a homophobic, downlow, black man. I love my #lgbtqia+ life. Read a book. Educate your mind. Get it out of mental slavery and religious dogma according to white jesus. Free your soul. Live. There are many gangstars caught up in this prison. In their mind, they believe; nobody knows. So sad. It is time. Love is love. Everybody knows.Miles & Milan’s relationship journey was a FIRST for “Love & Hip Hop”. #ProudTogether #LHH.

Scattered applause🤣🤷🏿‍♂️ after a performance. Is that good or bad? #Aremuorin #LiveMusic #OblivionEp

Written by Aremuorin


Found this songwriting workshop footage, I attended, a decade ago; performing my first penned, song How Is Life“. 

The scattered applause at the end had me ambivalent and insecure about my singing for years ..’

Watch “Follow Your Dreams: “How Is LIfe” Unplugged”.


An uplugged (stripped) version. Wao! Early morning singing, no warm ups.

So, I cruised through the song, rather than letting rip of my vocal cords. I did that regrettably, once before, due to poor music inductrination and racial peer pressure.

It cost me a lucrative major record deal among other things like racial trauma and ptsd. So, no! Not again. Beyond the pain, and making lemonade out of my lemons, I have performed this song, numerous time’s live at Ronnie Scotts.

It’s a cathartic favourite to play at jam sessions, with the house band, when asked to perform my self-penned songs. I’ve written hundreds of holistic  cathartic songs for my music therapy journey to overcome narcolepsy & depression. The remixes are just as cool.

Been always iffy about the acoustic version🧐. I nearly deleted it several times. It was one of the rare moments I observed on film, I was a Tom Girl and unique. I hated it for years till I embraced my individuality (uniqueness). The very african consciousness (Osumare) I was demonised for .

Everyone should. This opened my eye into the world of toxic masculinity in some men. Particularly, in some black men and why they are the way they are. Escuse the digression🧘🏿‍♂️. Scattered applause🤣🤷🏿‍♂️ after a performance. Is that good or bad? What do you think? Leave me your thoughts❤👈🏿 ..’ ✍🏿🙏🏿
