Right away from the start, I intended to write something about a band of young musicians from East Africa…. Sauti Sol for this particular piece
But then, something changed
It hit me that this is not what I will actually achieve
Call it a bluff….or writers’ block….or selective forgetting….
I don’t know
So, here I am.
Kinda stuck behind my laptop
And my fingers pacing down and forth on the keyboard
With my eyes dimming out to the light
And my head buzzing with this headache
Earphones playing the remix of Aje
I read about this whole writers’ block somewhere on the internet
And never imagined it could grab me like this
And then, one time, somebody teased me that I am always welcome to the club
And “One of us”!
How laughable I thought this whole thing was, at the time
Have you been “One of us” before? Let’s share….
