Ghana 2032

the most recent dust magazine commissioned  this and this is what I had to say about it: I wanted to make us think about establishment. Not necessarily revolt against it but at least, think whether we are doing the right things.
I personally, don't think we have the right foundations for growth. We hardly own anything in this country and we have a very westernised standard of whats 'cool'.hey, I'm here typing all of this in English. I mean, wants defines cool anyway? Who gave the standards for what cool is? I believe we can set our own standards on whatever avenue. thats where the phrase "get off the slave ships, build our own pyramids" plays in. the Irony is that, I borrowed that text from some "American" rapper.  The Irony is a lot to think about.
oh and we are starting to build our own 'pyramids'! The people upfront represent the new generation thats going to. We have so much to offer the world. It's going to be a shame if no one gets to see it.
Aside the fact that it makes for exciting visuals, destroying and rebuilding was the theme for this. Sort of how Kwame Nkrumah intended. Don't mind me chale. I'm just defiant rebellious youth. I'm going through some anarchism phase.

God bless our homeland Ghana. Hanson
