You did It, Africa Poem by Emmanuel Oduro

Celebrate Africa.
Africa rejoice.
RSA celebrate
You made a fantastic reality,
Out of their fantasy.
Out of their impossibility
You conjured actuality.
The maiden mega match of soccer
Occurred with surprising success.
You did it, Africa.
You excelled RSA

Celebration unparalleled,
Jubilation unprecedented.
Africa has delivered
RSA has excelled
Matching the momentous moment,
With feats that fitted the fiesta.
Excellent in events management,
Honours in hospitality managership.
You did it, Africa,
You made it RSA

You entranced all, Africa.
You enthralled all, RSA
Critics and cynics confounded,
Doubting Thomases dazed.
Scepticism soon gave way to confidence,
Pessimism gave in to optimism,
Distrust gave way to believe,
Totality of detractors silenced.
Deep and deafening silence.
Vote of no confidence retracted.
You did it, Africa
You made it, RSA

Soon, only one tune thundered.
Chorus of compliment with conviction,
Symphony of salute and salaam,
Harmony of homage and honour,
Melody of unison and concord.
Africa has confounded its critics.
You did it, Africa
RSA, you made it

Special salute to RSA.
You proved a splendid stage.
Distorted dark-sides deeply immersed,
Magnificent merits eminently emerged.
Placing yourself on a pedestal,
Ranking you among the best of hosts,
Making you Africa’s acclaimed ambassador,
Asserting Africa a bona fide continent,
And underlining Africa’s continental legitimacy,
A continent worthy of recognition and respect.
RSA, You did it for Africa
RSA, You did it with Africa
Africa you did it
