[Spoken word] Go Black Stars, Go And Glow!

The 2019 AFCON is in motion with surprises and ecstatic experience. As Ghanaians wait to witness their successful turn against the Benin  side, many are those who have thrown their weights behind them with strong believe that,  in this Year of Return, the trophy which has eluded the land for long would be brought to Ghana—the Gate to Africa. Among the many Ghanaians supporting the gallant Black Stars in Ghana are also Creative artistes of which the multi-award winning young Ghanaian poet & spoken word artiste—Oswald Okaitei—is part. Oswald has collaborated with a young aspiring spoken word artiste—Euodia Attram—to present a stunning spoken word piece dubbed “GO BLACK STARS; GO AND GLOW!” written by Oswald Okaitei. It has Wiyaala’s GO GO BLACK STARS as background music. GO BLACK STARS; GO AND GLOW!”  implores the Black Stars to be at their best and bring joy to the many million Ghanaians who have for long, thirsted to see the trophy. The piece was shot at a number of locations—including the Independence Arch space, Jamestown community, Dansoman Turf Park & Chorkor- Alhaji Community Park. It was edited by Saani Hallil with videography handled by Chris Tsikata. The poem: Go Black Stars, Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals! Prove your Patriotism on the field of play And send shocks Down the spines of your critics & foes Go Black Stars, Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals! Keep going Till you end our long overdue catastrophe & Prove to the world That you deserve that trophy! Set upon Our weary faces unending smiles And give pride To the many Ghanaians who watch you across several miles Go Black Stars, Go and glow; keep soaring Till you tell A story worth your glory Prove the strength That lies within the Ghanaian feet And shine & sparkle For you are our gallant stars! Go Black Stars; Go and glow, go Black Stars and score the goals! We eye for your victory & long for your glory Awesome as gods Of the pitch, let your rainbow spread across the skies Go Black Stars, Go and glow; go Black Stars And unleash Your socceristic blow Go Black Stars, Go and glow; go Black Stars And return With the trophy!
