to pavement...'

18 April 2010
'I SPENT March with a delegation of activists, entrepreneurs and policywonks roaming western, southern and eastern Africa trying very hard tolisten,' writes Bono, in his latest column for the New York Times.'With duct tape over my gob, I was able to pick up some interestingmelody lines everywhere from palace to pavement ...'

 

Below, an extract, read the whole column here.

 

'Sharing a table with Githongo and me one night in Nairobi was DJRowbow, a Mike Tyson doppelganger. His station, Ghetto Radio, was avoice of reason when the volcano of ethnic tension was exploding inKenya in 2008. While some were encouraging the people of Kibera, one ofthe largest slums in Africa, to go on the rampage, this scary-lookingman decoded the disinformation and played peacemaker/interlocutor. Onthe station's playlist is Bob Marley and a kind of fizzy homespunreggae music that's part the Clash, part Marvin Gaye. The onlyuntruthful thing he said all evening was that he liked U2. For my part,I might have overplayed the Jay-Z and Beyonce card. 'They are friendsof mine,' I explained to him, eh, a lot.

 

Now this might be what you expect me to say, but I'm telling you, itwas a musician in Senegal who best exemplified the new rules. YoussouN'Dour - maybe the greatest singer on earth - owns a newspaper and isin the middle of a complicated deal to buy a TV station. You sense hisstrategy and his steel. He is creating the soundtrack for change, andhe knows just how to use his voice...'

I cherish every project, works of Bono. I support Bono from home where I live by myself with my chidren. Its all I can do, if anything changes, I would actually travel to Africa to join him in all his works. Bono is a great man. God has been good to this generation and U2 is the messenger. I love Bono who is a wise man. If he decides to go after the African Market with U2 or by himself, I support him. I am here to serve Bono, & U2, he can only go higher with Realm. I love his works. I love his heart, his essence, the light he gives me so I can drown in it, and I get it in unconventional ways.

 

Bono is a man worthy of my praise, and I celebrate homage to him in my own spiritual way thru God. I will celebrate him for as long as I have air in my lungs. There is only one Paul David Hewsen, One Bono in this huge, universe, and Bono stands out in the eyes of Realm. One day, I Realm will meet Mr. Paul David Hewsen, who is the true Prince, known as Bono by the world. A man with the heart of a Prince. That is the truth. Even though people lost faith in beauty, and the possibility of having a true Prince amongst us. But, I found him, it took for ever, and I would give all of me to be able to meet and enjoy his company to myself. Just a Prince and his Realm meet to catch up on a millenia of separation. I don't think we even have to speak. The energies will take care of that. Its natural meeting.

But on the topic:

 - if they're Streets kind of songs: YEAY!

 - if they're Haiti My Love kind of songs: I'm gonna throw up. When was the last time anyone listened to that song? I haven't since the day I got it.
