It only takes me and you
Performance at Kegezi Ndoto and stage manager for and Lwanda, A Ghetto Story.
Most events have always just entertained, little inspired and raised issues people face. There are two most successful powerful musical shows that have done more than just that to me.
Though I was involved in these productions as a performer and as a production team member (Stage Manager), -Kegezi Ndoto and Lwanda, A Ghetto Story respectively-, they made some major contribution to the quality of my life and others who were involved or watched.
These cultural activities have been significant to the extent that they have helped to shape the person I am today both professionally and as a person. Avoiding the complaining corner and trying to leave my environment better than I found it and influencing others to increase the link.
Kigezi Ndoto was a story of the African Hooks and Dreams. Colonialists came and went, we had our heroes, they did their part. We won and quickly lost it all because of selfishness and greed. We lost the hooks to reach our dreams. Each and every one of us has to think and act. We all have a part to play. This continent has done well and can do much better and be a great success story.
On the other hand Lwanda is a modern rendition of a traditional myth set up in a slum. After our leaders became what they are well known for, we were left to survive but not to live. People eating people -allow me to put it that way because I lack the words. Where is the just society where we can all live a prosperous quality life, highly humane as never?
Its time to do something right from the grass roots for ONE DAY change will catch up with everyone. It may take more than a decade and we may not be there to witness the fruits of collective efforts, but however slow it may be, victory will be realised. It is eminent because it only takes me and you!
