Oswald & Euodia

As the 2019 AFCON builds its momentum for maximum ecstatic experience, many Ghanaians have thrown their weights behind the gallant Ghana Black Stars with a strong believe that the trophy which has eluded the land for long would—in this Year of Return—be brought to the Gate to Africa, Ghana.

Among the many Ghanaians are Creative artists of which the multi-award winning young Ghanaian poet & Spoken word artiste—Oswald Okaitei—is part. Oswald has collaborated with a young aspiring Spoken word artiste—Euodia Attram—to present a stunning Spoken word piece dubbed “GO BLACK STARS; GO AND GLOW!” written by Oswald Okaitei.

GO BLACK STARS; GO AND GLOW!” as a piece is a plea and inspiration to the Black Stars to be at their best and bring joy to the many million Ghanaians who have for long longed for it (trophy).

The piece which was shot at a number of locations—including the Independence Arch space, Jamestown Community, Dansoman Turf Park & Chorkor-Alhaji Community Park—was edited by Ishmael Bampoe with videography handled by Chris Tsikata.

Original poem:

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals!

Prove your
Patriotism on the field of play
And send shocks
Down the spines of your critics & foes

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars and score the goals!

Keep going
Till you end our long overdue catastrophe &
Prove to the world
That you deserve that trophy!

Set upon
Our weary faces unending smiles
And give pride
To the many Ghanaians who watch you across several miles

Go Black Stars;
Go and glow; keep soaring
Till you tell
A story worth your glory

Prove the strength
That lies within the Ghanaian feet
And shine & sparkle
For you are our gallant stars!

Go Black Stars;
Go and glow, go Black Stars and score the goals!

We eye for your victory
& long for your glory
Awesome as gods
Of the pitch, let your rainbow spread across the skies

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars
And unleash
Your socceristic blow

Go Black Stars,
Go and glow; go Black Stars
And return
With the trophy!
