The Negro

OFFICIAL POEM FOR CENTRAL MUSIC AWARDS

Written by The Haymaker

Once upon a time

In a land born along the coast

On the same stretch as the land named after the pond of salt

Where maidens treat you to the unique taste of exquisite Fante fante

And men hit their chest with pride

Pride born out of hardwork

As they sip from the belly of the palm tree beneath the night skies.

With sweet melodies from the indigenes of the night.

On such night was born the dream

Dream conceived by musings of a great soul

And nurtured by tireless efforts of great minds.

The dream to take the melodies of the night

To the fireside in the middle of land

Gathered around it were the old and young, strong and weak, rich and poor, royal and common.

With a clap, a shout, a nod, and a leap

We fired the spark into a wild fire
