Politician na Winch (politicians are witches)

I like to capture the moment,random stuff that interests me from time to time and I mostly do this using the camera or sound recorder on that one device that as a result in advances in technology and human commercials enterprise has been foisted on me and has almost become inseparable  (my phone, smart phone )

Besides its use for making calls, and the 1001 apps on a smartphone,the selfie culture and the argument this culture has brought about if selfies is a narcissistic behavior. The smart phone obviously still - ranks tops amongst innovations that has  changed and is changing our world.

Personally though, I  think the two best thing my phone's camera is useful for, are acting as a small mirror when I can't find one, and of course using it as at tool for one of my "sport" - capturing the moments randomly.

So, here I was taking a ride on taxi, from the mainland to the island in Lagos Nigeria  and the driver starts playing this song on the radio. I just had to record, some part of the chorus in pidgin English, it went something like

",..  nor be only person wen dey fly for night be winch oh,be winch oh.." me tell you ",..  nor be only person wen dey fly for night be winch oh,be winch oh.."

.. politicians na winch.. dem be winch oh, dem be winch oh...."

... amebo na winch.. bad belle na winch.. dem be winch oh, dem be winch oh...."

In simple English it means, Politicians are Witches.

True Talk,when you start thinking of all Nigeria has been through in the hands of crooked politicians especially since 1999 - although most, and not all - fits this musician's description.

I captured this bit of the song, and enjoyed the comical but true message with a good laugh for the part of my journey this song lasted on the radio.
