~ A Lesson To Rivers APC

Erudite Hon. Barr. Worgu Boms wrote:

The English language, which grew out of a sub-dialect of the German language, has become the world’s language with all its squirm and squirk!

Two examples:
1. A shotgun means the opposite of what the name implies!
It is actually a LONG, yes, long gun that fires a lot of small metal bullets (called shot) and used especially for shooting birds or animals.

2. The meaning of ‘Tomboy’, defines a kind of girl, not boy!
‘A tomboy is a young girl who enjoys activities and games that are traditionally considered to be for boys’.
Why they didn’t call her Tomgirl or call boys with the equivalent behavior Tomgirl, drives home the point we are making.

Despite all that, the Language has come to rule the whole world!

According to Bill Bryson, in his Book titled ‘Mother Tongue’, The Story of the English Language, “what immediately sets English apart from the other languages is its rich vocabulary”.
“Altogether, about 200’000 English words are in common use, more than in Germany, (184,000), and far more than in French (a mere 100,000).”

Bill Bryson, the famous author (if you read just one of his many books, you’ll beg to read anything he writes! Some persons are exceptionally gifted!!) then makes this valid conclusion based on the above:
“The richness of the English vocabulary and the wealth of available synonyms, means that English speakers can often draw shades of distinction unavailable to non English speakers “.

I agree!

Jules Feifer once drew a strip cartoon in which the down-at-heel character observed that:
“He was first called poor, then needy, then deprived, then underprivileged, and then disadvantaged and concluded that although he still didn’t have a dime, he sure had acquired a fine vocabulary!’ ”

This is one beauty of the English language, we cannot deny.
One thing, that same one thing, depending on the context, can be called a phenomenon or philosophy, or creed, or Spirit, or modus, or modus operandi, or modus vivendi, etc etc and you are still referring rightly, to that same one thing!

This is the beauty of English language, we cannot deny.
We take this beauty in English language for granted.
But when we remember that other notable languages lack this beauty, we should appreciate this beauty more .
The French, for instance, cannot distinguish between ‘house’ and ‘home’.
To us English speakers, we know of deep difference between the two.
The Spanish can’t differentiate a ‘chairman’ from ‘president. ‘
Italians have no equivalent of ‘wishful thinking’.

As one authority on the subject authoritatively observed; “English is the only language that has or needs books of synonyms like Roget’s Thesaurus.
Most speakers of other languages are not aware that such books exist.”

Thabo Mbeki studied Economics in London.
By all standards, he is well educated.
Nelson Mandela was a lawyer. He studied both at Forte Harry and Witts.
Both governed South Africa one after the other in quick succession.

Jacob Zuma is not in their class of the highly educated and urbane.
Zuma is not a university graduate.
Zuma was like a street boy involved in some kind of unionism with trade unions and ventured into politics where he became loved by the vast majority members of the party despite his contrasts to Mandela and Mbeki

When it was time to run for the presidency of South Africa under their party the ANC, Zuma made clear he was interested.

Left to Mandela and Mbeki, they would never allow him.
They would fight him to finish!
It was obvious.
It was clear.

You can watch the video of the ANC congress again and the speeches.

But it was also clear that Zuma, degree less and urbane-less, was the choice of the rank and file and hoipolloi of the party, the ANC and that without Zuma, the ANC would be politically imperilled!

“Should we oppose Zuma out of our own personal prejudices and lose the election, seeing that the people want him,’ Thabo and Mbeki reasoned.
They submerged their huge, personal, valid prejudices against Zuma and allowed the process and the people to decide and today, the ANC, is still politically thriving!

The duo of Mandela and Mbeki, like many South African politicians and political observers knew very well, that the ANC had a formidable racist enemy white party and group, waiting on the wings for the disintegration of the ANC to take over power.
They factored all these into their calculations on Zuma and decided not to suit themselves, but the party and its suffering blacks and members they had the burden of history to lead.

They didn’t go on to instigate the party Faithfuls against Zuma

They didn’t go to the public abusing Zuma as a drunkard or a tout

They didn’t even tell the public what it already knew about Zuma, that he was not as educated as they.

They didn’t go about publicly reminding the people how they, privileged and having governed, how when they were in office, they were chief benefactors to Zuma, the tout, who had no degree and how he would have died of hunger had not stepped in.

They didn’t even remotely suggest that the so-called uneducated Zuma was ungrateful for dreaming to be president which they, lawyer and London-trained Economists had been!

They wisely surrendered to the wishes of the people and the time for the sake of the much needed political survival of the ANC.

This attitude of Mandela and Mbeki towards Zuma and the ANC is the opposite of what played out against Andrew in the House of Reps.
Against the eponymous Andrew in Andoni.
Against the eponymous Andrew again and the APC Rivers in the gubernatorial.

What do you call it, knowing that the English language is rich in synonyms?
Is it ‘spirit’, ‘philosophy’ ‘Phenomenon’, ‘mentality’ ‘creed’, ‘misusing operandi’ ‘modus vivendi’ in APC Rivers (that is opposite to the spirit mentality etc etc that Mandela and Mbeki exhibited in ANC) that we should strive to exorcise in Rivers APC.
(I didn’t say ‘exercise’,
I said ‘exorcise’)

This is the crux of the matter in APC Rivers: not glib peace talks.

Not expectations of ministerial or other federal appointments Which must come, anyway.

How do we exorcise the spirit, the mentality, the philosophy, the modus ( whether operandi or vivendi), (add your own synonyms for which the English language is famously rich!) that politically hobbles the Andrews of APC Rivers, to the detriment of the entire party?

This is the crux of the matter.

How Individuals See Nigerian Artists

There are bunches of false impressions about artists. These misguided judgments exist even in instructed social orders the world over. While they apply to craftsmen by and large, our concentration here is with music.

One misinterpretation is that the performer must be a “destitute craftsman” and carry on with a poor way of life.

Music, much the same as some other calling, has the individuals who succeed monetarily and the individuals who don’t and those in the middle. You see affluent pop and demigods and you see buskers with containers in the city.

Financial achievement is autonomous of ability, and not really specific to any one industry either.

A fascinating thing to note is that music itself is really a moderately costly industry to the extent proficient artists like are concerned. Instruments and other gear in addition to their support and furthermore spaces can be very expensive.

Quality exercises, a vital speculation, are not actually modest.

All organizations have their overhead and working costs.

What’s more, doing music professionally falls into this class, along these lines it requires legitimate business sharpness and amazing monetary intending to guarantee dissolvability and suitability. You also check out some great Wizkid songs and Davido songs, What’s more, there are unquestionably proficient performers in this world who are not “starving” and doing fine and dandy.

Another bogus thought is that artists must be to some degree insane or insecure, and this has by one way or another become related with ability.

Ability remains solitary and is its own region.

Abusive people made this bogus idea with an end goal to hold imagination down. Anything great, ground-breaking and innovative undermines certain people whose solitary goal is to demolish.

This, by chance, clarifies the predominance of medications in shake music. It is altogether determined. Artists, since they are innovative and creative, are powerless and frequently focuses for concealment.

Performers, similar to some other person, have feelings and emotions. Since they are under greater judgment and assessment, for example, during rivalries or scholarly jury tests, they become progressively inclined to assaults by the individuals who utilize that as a road basically to hurt others, or by the individuals who are just coldhearted.

Opposing assessments between judges can likewise cause incredible disarray.

Being expressive, euphoric, insouciant and entertaining would all be able to go under the heading of inventiveness, so this also has likewise been dishonestly connected with being insane or hypochondriac.

Being genuinely uninhibited is for the most part disapproved of in our general public, where we are altogether expected to carry on with a specific goal in mind, similar to dairy cattle. At the point when a performer is in a supernatural minute, he may appear to be to some degree insane to a progressively standard individual.

A genuine model was an arranger who was strolling down the road and unexpectedly had a sparkle of innovativeness and he began “verbally processing” with his imaginative procedure, making musical hand and body motions.

Some bystanders may have thought there was a major issue with him, not understanding that he was just having a supernatural or inventive minute.

One regular paradox is that it is some way or another alright for a performer to play for nothing. The “pay to play” idea is tragically predominant. Would one request that a handyman come fix the sink for nothing? Not in the event that he needs to get his sink fixed.

In all honesty, an advertisement was put as of late in a specific classifieds segment from a café proprietor looking for a band to come perform at his eatery for nothing with the deficient trade of “advancing themselves and selling collections”. As senseless as this sounds, it is very normal. Music teachers as often as possible get requested free exercises.

While there is nothing amiss with doing humanitarian effort to help meriting oppressed people, that is unique. Would one approach a bookkeeper to do charges for nothing? Once more, same guideline.

Another off-base thought regarding performers is that their physical appearance, conduct or air must be irregular, unique or even strange. This gets forced a ton yet is superfluous. It is an erroneous propensity in numerous social orders. Picture is picture and unessential to show of ability.

It is additionally regularly imagined that artists are excessively touchy and sincerely delicate, who breakdown effectively under the weights of life. As referenced before, a performer, similar to some other person, has feelings and mental soundness or madness. Yet, in actuality, the artist has a specific preferred position, for music is additionally a strategy for mending and venting of injury and accordingly remedial to perform.

This causes an incredible road for help and by and large outcomes in more prominent mental and passionate security.

In any case, in spite of the considerable number of misrepresentations, the reality remains that performers are capable, causative and innovative creatures, and for the most part cherished, since the delight of music is extraordinary and gives life and magnificence.
