|The Problem With †ђε Rick Ross Video by ElMatteo(m): 12:36pm On Sep 22, 2012|
Yes, Rick Ross may have shown †ђε realities about a part of our lives as Nigerians. However, he did not tell †ђε whole truth. I agree đα̲̅τ̲̅ we have so many ills in our nation, I agree đα̲̅τ̲̅ so many live below †ђε poverty line, I agree đα̲̅τ̲̅ so many children die of malaria and remain malnourished, I agree đα̲̅τ̲̅ maternal mortality in my country is one of †ђε highest in †ђε world, I agree đα̲̅τ̲̅ so many live in slums..Yes I agree. But this is not †ђε whole story.
There aя̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ many beauties đα̲̅τ̲̅ my country has đα̲̅τ̲̅ still gives ♍ε̲̣̣̣̥ hope. How can I forget †ђε beauty of African motherhood, how can I forget those đα̲̅τ̲̅ against †ђε odds of Nigeria still become so successful, how can I forget †ђε effort of people like †ђε Lagos State governor in transforming Lagos into a mega city, how can I forget †ђε Ibiye project by †ђε Mimiko led administration in Ondo state that have notably reduced maternal mortality, how can I forget great world scholars like Wole Soyinka and Chinua Achebe among many đα̲̅τ̲̅ my nation have produced, how can I forget Yakubu Adesokan, a disabled athlete đα̲̅τ̲̅ smashed not just †ђε paralympic record but †ђε world record, how can I forget....I could go on and on...
The problem with †ђε Rick Ross video is đα̲̅τ̲̅ it told only about our ills in †ђε society and neglected our many beauties. This is what Chimamanda Adichie called †ђε concept of †ђε Single story. It was not †ђε whole truth but a part of it and if it isnt †ђε whole truth then it isnt †ђε truth at all.
Many people across †ђε world would see †ђε video and think đα̲̅τ̲̅ s all there is τ̅☺ my country and would not be told †ђε complete story of our victories inspite of †ђε odds.
My country may be slow in development but I know đα̲̅τ̲̅ things aя̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ getting better and with time we would catch up with †ђε rest of †ђε world.
