The Blacksmith Prince and the Tyrant

Suntou Touray
The torturing subject making tongues waking is simply that, will they finally marry or will it not happen. The self anointed Prince of the Gambia, residing in Deutschland has done all Princely overtures to attract the attention of the tyrant but the Tyrant remains muted.
The Prince showed off his illusionary wealth, grandeur, notoriety, devilish cavaliers, and many more elongated trash-self-serving commentaries, yet the Tyrant remain disinterested.
How do we quicken the nuptial of our Prince with the indelible wannabe King, Abdul Aziz Of Kanilia? I for one feel ashamed seeing endless big statements from the Prince. “I am willing to offer my service for free, only if the President gives me the green light” Doh!!!
The Prince ten years ago ran away from the Gambia claiming that, he is a wanted man, wanted by the beast of Banjul. The sympathetic German immigration authorities granted the exile Prince Asylum. Like many European country, after a couple of years, the asylum status can be converted into nationality. I guess this is what the Prince did.
The Prince forgot that, the man he ran away from is still the same person, only wiser in disposing off his enemies and friends. Ask Edward Singhteh, Yanks Touray, Abdoulie kujabi, Lang Tombong, Edu Gomez, Fatou Jahumpa etc etc. However, like many new recruits to self-destruction, they think they have the wisdom to escape the crawling claws of the Tyrant. Good luck.
As of today, no one knows the number of Gambians incarcerated for expressing contrary political opinion to the President. With many dead and many imprison, and a further sizeable number in exile, including the Prince. One wonders why the Prince wishes to associate himself with the tormentor of many.
The Prince has now started abusing and cursing the opponents of the Tyrant, he calls them “fools and stuffs”. He cracks many jokes to be among the Gambian masses. The Prince after all wants attention and adulation, but does the Tyrant care?
Like any Prince, Jesuits would ably employ the service of tandem flattery and unfunny jokes. But since the Prince is in no position to have court jesters, he unashamedly jests himself...
The big question is naturally that, is the Prince with many titles and portfolios wise enough to enter the cage of a man he sort asylum from? The Prince repeatedly bombards Gambian readers with very lengthy personal opinions. In them, he claims to be a Film director, Film Producer, Cinematographer, Nollywood-connected, Rich, and many more grand skills.
Sadly, the Prince has demonstrated the symptom of loneliness syndrome. With no one to verify his loud claims, let us leave him to his big and noisy claims.
My personal message to the tyrant is marry our only Blacksmith Prince before he change heart. Keeping a grown man waiting can be hazardous. His jokes aren’t funny anymore. I wish him well. Yahya shake the hand of our Prince, and do what Yahya does best. Goodbye.

Our home: Free-For-All House

The house was build to serve the people. To welcome everybody with both ears. To unearth the mess that is tyranny. Free-for-all house, welcome visitors indiscriminately. It want to be the home of truth, fair play and justice for all. The urge is to allow all sides to enter the house and have a decent conversation.       

 But as it happens, free-for-all house owner got drunk with attention and the eagerness to hear himself. Instead of following the motto it was built for, it became a home of  vengeance and retribution for no just cause. The house owner became Mr One Big ear. He twirl and abuse people without verification. He insults at the top of his voice using mega phones and a cyber voice.
In fact, the owner keep falling out with people. Yet ironically. he is terrified of allowing decent people a voice! He thunders, "I will not allow   X Y and Z on my set. No one will seek fame on my mega phone." Aah he became the self- consuming little tyrant. This is my home,  Audacity.

The audacious owner, close and former associates fears has turn the house into a Free-dump-House. He now routinely take sides, disbarred certain people, scream at some and make the House inhabitable to others. Some even claim he doesn't listen to advise, because He believes, his privilege position in hearing secret conversations puts him an advantage position to finish anybody who fall on his wrong side. No friendship is permanent to him, no one is beyond his attacks. So the house stands, and we wait. Will it change cause and hear everyone before taking sides, will he restrain himself and allow cutesy and fairness to lead the way? Time will tell.
