Ever seen a nation:

of men who added extra to their ordinary

of men who became super in the natural

of men who inserted meta to the physical

of men who brought in 'IM' to mortality

men who in search for a fair nut

prospered even in the far north

and cheered others to fear not

men who arose when many were called and few chosen

burning with passion when many were cold and few frozen

men while colleagues where in sitted were out standing

and have vowed never to sit in but stand out

men who through faith change and recreate fate

men who defy deities to kiss destiny

took terestial trade from global to celestial

men who now trade words with gods

Ndi Igbo

rooted in Nigeria and prospering in diaspora

if only Oha Na Eze could be ONE

then IBOs will forever be Indivisible Brothers Occupying stately
