The efik/ibibio people might call her ADIAHA THE IGBO'S calls her Ada A true born African her hips seals lips for a thousand words are wrapped around her waist... And Her chest carries a mountain A canaan of its own Flowing with MILK AND HONEY even Israel can't compete for her mind has won more battles than JOSHUA ever did with a sword.. Her dark skin tell the tales of her originality.. She is the African salad.. Every man wish to taste.. The young ones look up to her while their mother's reminisce She feed lord lugard and Nnamdi Azikiwe even before they knew how to spell their names.. She was there when Ojukwu declared war on her sons and her daughters were made barren.. She is the mother of poets and the inventor of poetry... Stories were like poems in her mouth even before Hollywood could master the art... Her tongue had painted more pictures in the heart of her children so Her HISTORY they never forget #MAMA_AFRICA
