The Blacksmith Prince and the Tyrant
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.
