ARTIST’S STATEMENT

ACTUALLY I DID NOT COME TO MEET NKRUMAH.

HE IS TO ME AN HISTORICAL FIGURE.

WHETHER HE REALLY DID EXIT OR NOT, THAT’S NOT FOR ME TO TELL.

WHETHER WHAT REPORT SAYS ABOUT HIM IS TRUE OR NOT, I CAN’T KNOW.

HISTORY HAS IT THAT HE LIVED, THAT I BELIEVE;

HE DIED, THAT I BELIEVE ALSO.

HE STOOD FOR AFRICAN’S FREEDOM ANDUNITY, THAT I CAN’T TELL.

HE WAS A PAN-AFRICANIST, MIGHT BE POSSIBLE.

DOES IT MEAN I DON’T BELIEVE IN HIS CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACHIEVEMENTS? I DON’T KNOW.

WHAT I BELIEVE IS THAT, THERE WERE MANY CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACHIEVEMENTS MADE DURING HIS REIGN AND I THANK HIM THAT HE ALLOWED THESE CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACHIEVEMENTS TO BE DONE DURING HIS REIGN.
