GIRLSIE

You took the words right out of my mouth!!!!!
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh! Your lyrics speak a thousand words of revelation and your tongue is sharper than any two-edged sword! Continue to allow your vibes to expose the enemy. Peace be unto you my brother!

This CD posed a refreshing view on global issues and the influence that the US has on Afrika. In addition, it also made me think twice about black TV shows that my kids watch in the US.

I am proud to be a fan of a man who is focus not only of his roots but history i
I like the way he sums up reality with rhythm. I will continue to be a fan of Mr. Omekongo wa Dibinga as long as his poetry keep flowing as real as reality gets. Everyone who is interested in Africa and African American history shall have one in their hands today.

Wow! Omekongo did it AGAIN!
Just when you think it can't get any better....The beats art hot and the words are on-point. If you loved his first album, you'll want to add his sophomore effort to your collection!
