The saga of a secret tape

tapeFriends, I don’t like recycling stuffs but to make a point and for emphasis, I want to repeat parts of some posts I made sometime ago. Just put on your dancing shoes and let’s dance to the tune of “Chant a psalm a day” by Steel Pulse. To refresh your memory, Steel Pulse is a roots reggae musical band from the Handsworth area of Birmingham in England which has a large number of Afro-Caribbean, Indian and other Asian migrants. They were the first non-Jamaican group to win the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.

But, please hold on. Have you heard about a secret tape on which some people are planning to stoke more strikes and labour agitations? What about the part which says they are going to recruit ONE MILLION MALIANS into the country for the 2016 elections? Chai, the other issues on the tape are not, not, not. “Ungovernable Agenda” paa nie.

Don’t joke with Yaanom when it comes to “Agenda at-all-costs” oo. They could be dangerously fiendish. If you think I’m doing propaganda, read this chilling account of what was done to Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah by some opposition elements which was recounted by himself in some of his books and memoirs.

“It was 1.00 PM in the garden of Flagstaff House. I was leaving the office to go for lunch when four shots were fired at me by one of the policemen on guard duty. He was no marksman, though his fifth shot succeeded in killing Salifu Dagarti, a loyal security officer who had run after the would-be assassin, as soon as he spotted him among the trees.

“The policeman then rushed at me trying to hit me with the rifle butt. I wrestled with him and managed to wrestle him to the ground and held him there on his back until help came, but not before he had bitten me on the neck.”

Yea mehn, let me join Steve Nisbett, Steel Pulse’s drummer on the drums, as I treat you to a spot of hot roots reggae music. Feel free and blow away your bluesy feeling: Cha, cha, Cha, cha, cha, kirenkeken,

Rejoice, rejoice
Good tidings I bring you
Hear ye a message to you my friend
Voices cry invoke your angels
When pressure drop it cannot conquer dread no
So blow away your bluesy feeling
Spirits say take the world off you shoulder
One foot in the grave is a foolish step to take (dancer)

Who sow in tears shall reap in joy
Wise man doctrines assure your safety
No more stumbling block back stabbers get down
To the righteous revealed
The secret of the scriptures
The wicked dem portion is vanity
Disciples of Lucifer

In your hands lie your destination
The book of true life you hold the key
Mystical powers to you unfold
Seek ye the half that has never been told
Get behind me satan (in this ya Armageddon)
I’ve got chant
Chant a psalm a day.
I want to chant chant a psalm a day
I got to chant chant a psalm a day.

Moses he did chant chant
Samson he did chant chant
Elijah he did chant
I want the whole a we fe chant chant
Solomon he did chant chant
His father King David chant chant
John the Baptist chant chant
I want the whole a we fe chant chant

Chai, reggae musicians and innuendos, smh. Did you hear them? They mentioned “Disciples of Lucifer”and said back stabbers must get down. Kikikikiki, who are the Disciples of Lucifer and back stabbers they are referring to? Keep your answers oo, I don’t want trouble.

I also like the part of the lyrics which says that who sows in tears shall reap in joy. Ghana is sowing in tears, but will reap in joy very soon. Chant a psalm a day for the young man from Bole for strength and the spirit of excellence to make our nation better.
