Wá, make I tell you something, depicts opposing yet symbiotic mindsets necessary for survival amidst turmoil. It depicts the story of all Tunji’s around the world, overwhelmed by frustration and distrustful of the social systems that “took food from the mouths of his children”. It depicts the story of all Samuel’s around the world, still beating on despite the chaos surrounding him, lest he lose himself. It depicts the story of unity, where grievances are heard, and support is offered.
