about

According to the Yoruba, "Omo l'ere aiye". This means a child is life's ultimate reward. Regardless of what others might say, I truly believe that children are the future of our world for they hold the key to tomorrow's promise for a bigger, better and brighter future for all.

For this very reason we need to invest in our children; their education, safety, health concerns, wealth, empowerment and general well being. The spate of cruel injustices perpetrated by others against our young ones should never be condoned or go unpunished.
#Chibok #Gaza

I dedicate this Samba tinged, Yorubasoul'd out (courtesy of Osunlade) paean to all children globally, for indeed their time to shine has truly come. Join me as I sing and bellow at the top of my lungs...

"Children of the sun lift your heads up to the skies"

Track Name: Children of the sun (Album cut)
HOOK
Children of the sun
Lift your heads up to the skies
Children of the sun
Lift your heads up to the skies

VERSE
Your time to shine has come
Unite together as one
Set aside your differences
To celebrate the gift of life

HOOK
Children of the sun
Lift your heads up to the skies
Your place in this world
Can never be denied

VERSE
Arise you blessed souls
Pay no heed to the lies you’re told
Cast aside your fears and your doubts
Remain hopeful when u go without

BRIDGE
Take a good look in the mirror
You’d find the answers to great unknowns
Listen to the voice within your heart
You’ve got love on your side
Let it reign let it shine

HOOK 2
Children of the sun
Lift your heads up to the skies
Children of the sun
Keep your eyes upon on the prize
Children of the sun
Seek the truth within your life
It will set you free
From the pain that’s deep inside
Children of the sun today…

REFRAIN
And if you just close your eyes
You’d feel the love inside
Walk right through love’s open door
spread your wings apart and fly

REPEAT CHORUS TO FADE
