"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

Fela! scores at the Tony Awards :)

The Fela! musical that Jay-Z, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are behind, was nominated for 11 Tony Awards, the most for 2010, and was able to win for Best Sound Design of a Musical, Best Lighting Design of a Musical, Best Costume Design of a Musical and Best Choreography.  Congrats! Nice to see a great African story being told.

Nigerians are calling for the musical, but it seems there is conflict with prior scheduled engagements.  It deserves to be seen on African soil. I saw the Lion King in South Africa and it was one of the best theatre experiences of my life!

Here is a video of the lead actor, Sahr Ngaujah's journey to the Tony Awards.
