This song had been in my heart for a few days. I got my sister's friend, Wunmi to help me with the lyrics…. Then I saw @timidakolo page, his song brought tears to my eyes and this happens every time I sing it. Beyond the nice images on social media today, the smiles, there is a yearning in every true Nigerian for us to be greater than where we are now… God has blessed us and we are a nation that prays so much… We need to do more than pray… We need to put our hand to the plough.. . As we celebrate our independence, let us remember those who don't have access to healthcare, good roads, quality education, potable water, food to eat… Let's be an unrelenting voice for them. That it is okay with those who have more than enough should not insulate us from what is the reality in this Nation.. According to @timidakolo, indeed "WE ARE ALL WE HAVE" GOD BLESS NIGERIA THE LAND OF MY BIRTH Thanks for my Tee, Blaaaaaaad!! Love eet!! @funkekut #NIGERIA #KingSunnyAde #Fela #WeAreAllWeHave #K8DGR8 #MixedEmotions #StrengthAndResolve
