Please show me your ID please?
This is in my head as I write this...
I was in the bus one day when I spotted a cool looking guy who donned a nice outfit. only that His outfit was a cliche and it made me flash back to one of D'banj's videos..
N.B...I'm not a fan and on a normal day, i wouldn't go looking for this man who loves to imitate Fela but as i would have it, His video located me. kudos to my cousin who has most of these songs that people listen to these days because count me out, I appreciate music when I hear your lyrics..., and mind you, the lyrics must be deep and not just some words like...lets go to the dance floor and shake our booty
We need more than shaking our booty in Nigeria.., even on planet earth
and we need good and sensible music that will make us reflect and not make people to keep drinking, raping people and breaking bottles
Was there any wonder I was formerly addicted to rock? Lyrics...lyrics...the artiste had his soul in the song...don't know which other way to explain this though
okay.., before i drift away from the main topic, i saw this guy's outfit or should i call it costume and then my mind flashes back to D'banj's dressing in His Oliver twist video
identity lost, all i can see when i look at this guy is D'banj!, D'banj!....D'banj!...oliver twist...sheeesh!!
where's the guy's own identity?
He's just a copycat, because He'll never be D'banj, (although I'm wondering what the guy sings anyway) not in this life or in the life to come.
And then I realized while i was discussing with someone that we love to look like someone and yet claim to be unique in our own way. Our sense of fashion, our sense of thinking and our mode of dressing have now been fashioned accordingly to what the world says and I'm like Hellooooo....have we been put in a zombie stage where we grope in the dark while some group of people dictates what we do, and what we wear and how we think and live
the individual i discussed with put it point blank that we have No form of identification anymore. when it comes to the Hair aspect(no offense and please don't aim the sniper at me oo abeg..LOL)..We rush for things that are not even ours in the first place. talk about Brazilian hair or Mexican hair or Human hair.
I hear Human hair and i'm like Whoa...lool...whose hair is that..right on my head..and I'm gonna sleep on my head carrying some form of hair on my head....#shudders#
This multicolored clothes people wear these days with the slippers..(i don't like things that are common. to me they already have a price tag..A general price tag when someone looks at you)
I hate looking like a price tag
I look at some guys with this carrot jeans and tight T-shirt with your boxers showing while your jeans is lowered and i'm like "whoa!!...hold it right there cowboy..LOOl...no one wants to see your underwear...seriously!!!...' but it's the new fad in town. i see some guys dressed like this and my mind flashes to wizkid....
I don't see you anymore, I see a child who got famous and who's rants about dancing whereas when people have not eaten, how will they party...or Someone singing about "his father being rich and you dare not stop Him"...and I'm like.."hello!!..whack!!...go get your own money dude!...your father's money cannot continue being your money silly!!''
Another thing that amazes me most is where do they get all these girls that dance in the Videos
one of my friends stated one time that she dared not pull that kind of stunt. her mother would kill her or was "disown" the word she used
Can't remember and I'm not even interested in that. all I'm interested in is that You get a life and keep your integrity, and stop copying people and be an original
So many copycats, so many people wanna belong and so many fit in yet just a few have their real Identity when I see them
When I look at you, I wanna see You for You, and not you looking like Beyonce or Rihanna or one of those celebrities who really need God in their life. Why can't the world choose to imitate you instead? And i hate when guys try comparing a girl to Beyonce..e.g A shape or body like Beyonce like she's some form of goddess or role model. that girl will never be like Beyonce and so Just Shut UP already!!..if you don't like her for who she is, then..., Adios amigos!!!..She's just being herself and stop pushing her to compromise
If you like, travel and go and marry Beyonce or whoever celebrity you wanna marry, but stop imposing your lust on women who have refused to follow a certain pattern of Hollywood's lies and respect them
And Ladies, please raise your tag and let them see your name and origin boldly written on it.
If you want a gladiator uniform, you already have it. in case you don't know or rather forgotten, you were enlisted as a soldier of Christ when you surrendered your life to Him
As for me, my Tag reads.."A Chosen generation, a Royal priesthood, A Holy nation.''
Do a double check and you'll see.."I am God's own"
what does yours read?
I'm not beefing ooo, but this had been on my mind for a while and i just thought I should share
N.B: for those that followed Lori's journal or rather got my gist in my Journal episode, check out the Lessons learned from Lori's journal(the last episode) that was where i gave my vote of thanks to every one because i noticed most of you didn't see it.
God bless you all darlings
