It Gets Better (A Poem for Xenophobias) by Samcilla Baakojr


Estranging the rest of Africa from the world
Black countries tortured their own with flames
TheZulu once again affirm their underhanded past
Dishonouring the struggle, their forefathers fought for peace
Yet they cry freedom for all..
How?
Soaked in blood mud, pierced by the claws of their greedwhich prevent their own skin colour from feeding… Ignorance? 

XENOPHOBIA to GENOCIDE 
the great holocaust! Who survives?
Emelia was a pretty lady
Smiling friendly her lips always ready
Living quiet in lovely suburbia
Her untimely death by non-whites with xenophobia
 
Why did the potter create them this way?
Was it because there were two types of clay?
One forged as a Cistern the next as an Urn
And exactly whom should this mess concern?

INHUMANE THE ATROCITIES

While the authorities are spectators
Instigated from high level seats
First the defacing of statues to this
something much bigger is brewing
Tears of the victims and their families’
finally rinsing away beautiful painted canvas
“Not my fault I’m better than you, Zulu
You’re the black ball, I’m the cue
My life is going up, yours is going down,
Because you wear a dunce cap and I wear a crown”

…Your locals demand free everything
But foreigners see opportunity in building your economy 
Allow this fate because it’s everywhere; will you also leave my land in peace or pieces?
It gets better Zulu. It gets better…
Do enough to stamp out, racism, intolerance and xenophobia
Respect all nationalities, religious backgrounds, sexual orientation 
and ethnic origins.
Because no one is good or bad on the basis of skin colour
XENOPHOBIAto GENOCIDE 
the great holocaust! Who survives?
It gets better!

Press Release: Black Box by Efo Kodjo Mawugbe.


BLACK BOX BY EFO KODJO MAWUGBE
“Aren’t we all Blemazadonians?” Efo Kodjo Mawugbe, Blemazado, 2008
BLACK BOX written by Efo Kodjo, scripted (scenography) by Arthur Lestrange with Shaji Karyat will feature on the stage of Alliance Francaise Accra on Tuesday 21stApril, 2015 at 7:30 pm for a journey through the theatrics of life.

Four years after his untimely passing, Efo Kodjo Mawugbe; playwright extraordinaire, dramatist, and performer leads an awakening of one of his non-exhaustive repertoire of plays all the way from Blemazado.  Efo Kodjo who is widely known and appreciated for his contribution to education and development of arts in Ghana and hailed more recently for his play, In the chest of a Woman has another of his works seeing the light of day even after his sojourn to Tsiefe. 

In the play, Shaji Karyat performs as Papa Ayivi. In this newly devised piece, Papa Ayivi, who bears the name of the king’s linguist and storyteller in Cinderama, is a hybrid of Bob (Sister), Bodza (The G-Yard People) and Kokosakyi (Blemazado). A fifty-year-old playwright, ICT expert, linguist and lunatic, Papa Ayivi rummages through the rubbish in a harrowing and hilarious attempt to scratch out an existence and build some form of shelter for his people and himself.

SYNOPSIS
The question in all its acuteness is as follows. “How can a human being find clothes and shelter in a poisoned and mutant world, how can one continue to live, to work, to create, for oneself and for others? Papa Ayivi, reject among rejects, is still standing, most of the time. His presence and his harrowing-hilarious actions in the versatile and dubious world where he lives reveal a maternal man who refuses to give up fighting. His delirious alienation will lead him perhaps not to save his entire people but at least to attempt to save a single being. But is there still time?”
This play is designed to shock, create a chain thought, provoke discourse, enlighten and above all,
 explore the human condition.10% of ticket sales will be given to the Efo Kojo Mawugbe Foundation. 
The play is supported by Institut Francais Ghana
