Aisha’s Blues  By Dum Syl Aminikpo

Guitar boy

(Pause, strings play, poco a poco, rises)

Guitar boy 

(Repeats pattern) 

If you see mammy water eee

(Strings, rolling towards a vicious crescendo, drops, gradually, soft, ad libitum).

Fine song. The good days when men were boys, when you could sing anything. Not the same now. 

Aisha, errmm, that song you did, some directors didn’t like the pitch. They said you went off, a little too high, so the song might not be allowed to air. Might never be played.  Not fair. People are saying that the song released by our president’s wife shouldn’t be played because the lyrics were not given an editing opportunity. 

Not fair. Not fair at all. 

Some directors are not happy that Aisha stated that out of 50, her husband doesn’t know 45. Knows nothing, including names of 45 people working with him. 

You see, people are not comfortable. They don’t like it that Aisha in her song complained that everything has been hijacked by strangers. 

Chai! 

Maybe even PMB. 

Chai! 

Maybe even Nigeria. 

Chaiiii!

Even the BBC Studios that recorded the song is being warned never to release it. Why na? Allow Aisha to sing. Haba! Why are people like this, small song that she did, you don’t want it released, why? 

People have power in this our country o. People have power. Big power. Plenty power.
