Asides art, I have keen interest in music, but unfortunately, I have a very horrible voice and I can’t handle any instrument. Well, maybe because I stutter. During my Industrial Training days, I was surrounded by guys and a lady, all artists, that use their voices very well. I tried to train my voice but the training process made me look stupid to some people. My interest in music made me watch a live musical performance by some students from a school not known to me few years ago where they harmonised different voices(Soprano, alto, tenor if I’m not mistaken). The theme of the performance was on Tokunbo. We buy tokunbo clothes, gadgets, home appliances etc and that’s true.
Now our fear, COVID-19 is also TOKUNBO. Tragic!!!
But also, Tokunbo is a unisex name, originating from the Yoruba ethnic group in Nigeria. The name means “from overseas” or “from across the sea”. The name is mostly used for a baby born in a country oversea.
This is my recently completed piece titled from the performance I watched and other things garnered together.
