Humble beginnings are stepping stones to greater heights. When sacrifice, talent and hard-work pay off, the result might not be the best yet, but is evident of greater successes yet to come.
Rudolph Adidi (Ruddapoet) received the award for Poet of the Year from Jogama yesterday. Although he was absent during the time he was called upon to collect the award as he had a performance elsewhere,the speech he was set to make during the awards reads thus:
“Errmm, Okay. My mum would always say ‘what is worth doing, is worth doing well’. I’m glad she’s seated here with her husband to watch what their encouragement has done. I dedicate my award to my fans, friends, those who voted, Solomon Haruna, Grandsun, Mala and Leonell Echa. I wish I have more words for this. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much Jogama. I will continue to fan the flames of spokenword until we get the attention required to reform minds, change perceptions,and forgive one another. Thank you”
