Dear Black Stars,
The other year, I wrote you a cheer song, you disappointed me.
Again I’m leading this cheer song in pursuit of your victory in Cameroon.
“I gave you all of me My heart, my soul, my body I kissed your ass and licked your pee, After all you were my demigod, my idol, my shining star… What did you do with it?
You threw my apples away… You took all the times I’ll still lay the bed and await your arrival home for granted, Whilst you went flirting with the world In search of fame, fortune, becoming complacent in the process You put a knife through my heart and turned me into an ugly soul You scarred my body after I lay naked for you to have your way. … You had me, all of me yet you took all that for granted.
Yesterday I moved on…. Today you come craving my attention again. My support, my heart, body and soul: all of me… Make me fall in love again.
Bring back all the magical moments when you touched me and I melted… When your kick made me do a royal dance because I had danced with a demigod. When the crown that you gave me sparkled with glitters of red, gold, green and the black star. I’ll bare my soul to you… If only you will make me fall in love with you again.
Go Black Stars! Go Ghana! Go Go Go! Make me fall in love again…”
The plea of Ama Ghana.
While we are not rallying behind you fully, as you begin your Afcon campaign today, just know that we won’t be pleased with a defeat against Morocco.
A simple advice to you; make us (Ghanaians) fall in love again. Give us another time to unite and enjoy 90minutes of soccer in this country without getting disappointed, or acting unconcerned after this Nations Cup. Give us your best, your best is what we want. Like you give to your various clubs, give Ghana your best too.
We want the trophy and nothing less!
On this note, know that our vuvuzelas which we have come to adopt may not be blowing from Accra to Paga to Aflao to Elubo, today. Our voices will not echo to sing your praises, we will not be waving our flags but more importantly at some point, our hearts will be with you.
Make sure you don’t break them. Make us fall in love with you again instead. Make us compose more cheer songs for you. Win today’s game and all Group C games, pull through to the round of 16, to the semis and quarter finals, then to the finals and please end our 40-year trophy drought. We want the bragging rights as African Champions, it will take our minds off e-levy and our differences as a people.
When you rise to become AFCON champions, don’t forget that I led the cheer to victory; the cheer song.
