@Regrann from @emmaugolee - it's me again Jah, as I fall on my knees today, help me Jah I pray, don't wanna be carried away"... I bet you are already singing to this with mad nostalgic seizures. You 90's roots reggae loving fella. Lol. May I even dare say you don't have to have had a thing for the genre of music to have known those very popular words that belonged to the powerful voice of Jephta, known globally as reggae icon Luciano.
Luciano was such a world star that from his home land Jamaica in 1993 he scored the #1UK reggae hit with the song "Shake It Up Tonight", Received a nomination for Best Reggae Album at the 2002 Grammy Awards, Got several recognitions for contribution to reggae music and boy! did he sell out shows across the world. Thousands in stadiums, waving at his command.
Did you know that the name Nigeria brings literal tears to his eyes? Inpired by horrific events in PH where at a canival, Luciano had enthusiastically performed to a booing crowd that assisted the cry to get him off the stage with bags of "pure water". The fluid coming down his cheeks were no escaped drops of pure water. They were pure ache inspired real tears. "But I am Luciano" - His words on repeat in disbelief for the utter disregard for his stardom.
Did the icon loose his skill overnight? Of course not. Luciano with all of his talent, fame and glory simply performed to the wrong audience. An audience baked and fried in deep ignorance over his value or achievements. So somebody pls stop the legend from crying for nothing was wrong with your worth, those whom you gave it to didn't simply deserve it. Period.Many times most of us become insecure over how blessed we are because we have constantly been criticized & disrespected by the undeserving company we stubbornly keep offering ourselves to.
Sinfully seeking acceptance or approval by people who do not even know the half of wat your capacity carries. The regular ignorant assessment begins to make some feel less of everything from intelligent to beautiful or even loyal.
Is that your story?Please change it right now. Stop looking at cracked mirrors for a complete reflection of you."Stop giving what is holy to the dogs"
