‘Together’ is the rhythm of all African music,
‘Together’ is hidden meaning in every African’s name,
Africa and her diaspora,

The other and her other,

Together at last,


Who else are you taking with you?

Who else will view the heady sunset with you?

Do not scale Kilimanjaro alone

Do not sail the Nile on your own

‘Together’ is the cadence of every African language.

‘Together’ is the completeness of every African soul.
