We are just Africans with the spirit of our ancestors.
Story telling is something I am expose to…
As a Fulani boy,
Born in Hausa land,
poem and story telling is the other half of me
Been a Hausa Fulani is a powerful moral implication;
Which opens all figment in heart.
The imagination of every artist open all heart.
I am a Fulani boy,
From a cultural mother
The intersection of our locality compose my morality.
A punch line removing shoes before elders,
take an Arabian friend down by surprise
