    We welcomed you........to our land,
    and let you stay to make merry with our clan,
    when you came we smiled and cheered,
    instead you scowled, cringed and sneered,

    We gave u bronze, ivory fruit from our trees,
    you gave us death and incurable disease,
    you beat us down and tied us with ropes,
    you watched us while we rowed your boats,

    You made us wage war... on a smaller clan,
    then sold all of us away to the evil white man,
    I wondered why you did such a thing,
    It was hard to believe we were the same colour skin,

    you were loved and admired and respected,
    but you let us die and be rejected,
    you killed as if you could love no other,
    you separated kids from their mother.

    You may have killed our tribe,
    but you didn't kill our pride,

    we remain ever-lasting, we remain so strong,
    and the spirits of our people, shall live on.

    WELCOME TO DESTEE

    Very Nice Naija

    Tiger pitted against Tiger. Thats how they solve. Looks better, feels good. I didn't do the lynching your brother did. Brother was sent in to fire me. I told him, I was ready. I had enough of the unprofessionals.

    Stay prepared. He will let you down. Not the brother they sent for the kill. But the one that controls his will.
