September 7, 2019.
Fellas, the weekend is here again! Clearly, it’s my favourite time of the week – I have to chill with my homies, have quality time with the family and stuff. Anyways, I said it last week and I’m going to briefly say it here again, I’ll be heading to London, UK, for the 2019 Afro Arts Productions’ Awards. Stay tuned, you’re about to read one of the craziest editions of “Behind the Scenes” - the radical thoughts of one Canadian dude called Lans Omar aka The Golden Child, born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Let’s do this: SALNAM has launched a committee exclusively orchestrated for the welfare assistance of community members in the Sierra Leonean community in Winnipeg, Canada. Mrs. Isha G. Koroma is currently spearheading the committee and a fundraising event is scheduled to take place on Saturday November 2, 2019 at the City Oasis in Winnipeg, Canada. SALNAM is calling on the entire Sierra Leone community for support and continued payments of your monthly dues to the organization.
Again and again, I’m appealing to all Sierra Leoneans at home and in the diaspora to remove grease off their meals and reduce carbohydrate intake. By grease I mean “oil”. I know this is a very sensitive subject but someone just has to talk about it. I’ve been ranting about this for the longest time; That consuming any type of oils (canola oil, coconut oil, olive oil and palm oil, etc.) on a daily basis as most Sierra Leoneans do is just a recipe for obesity, heart diseases, immobility and an eventual premature death. Dis Yonibani borbor don kras oh, wuna call Dr. Rahim of Kissy Kras Yard. But true though, this is not funny at all. Let’s just quickly take a simple Body Mass Index (BMI) test here: http://www.bmi-calculator.net/ - you’ll be seriously shocked at your results, but wae man dae talk, wuna feel say nar sassman ar don drink. BMI is a very simple test where you just input your height and weight and press enter, the result tells you right away if your fat or not. Period! I’m out of here.
Switching gears: Manitoba provincial elections are up on September 10, 2019! I can’t wait, I’m voting for the Liberals! Typo, sorry, typo error, my computer's backspace key has a problem, I can’t backspace at all – I meant I’M VOTING FOR THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA! Do I hear a cat meow?
Next stop: Did you guys read last week on this very Behind the Scenes where I talked about Arata threatening "your" president Maada Bio for not binding and giving him money for all the atrocities he has done in the name of SLPP? Did you? Bio is a f**ked up coward, the following week, Bio actually gave Arata a brand new SUV and cash of US$5,000 for him to hold his peace for the moment. Wow! This is the new direction. Mek ar run ba...
Question: How is Sierra Leone's First Lady Fatima Gucci doing? Poor girl. Now First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone! Under high luck, she got that title. Anyways, good for her and hopefully she gets the right sense of governance for that country.
Since you're here -I might have just spilled the beans: Gibril Koroma aka "GK" is having a launching & fundraising dinner event today Saturday September 7, 2019 at 200 Kenny Street, Winnipeg, Canada, commencing at 5:00pm; This is in honour of the Ibrahim Taqi Koroma Foundation.
And finally, don't forget this is the weekend, party responsibly and stay safe. If you’re drinking, know the rules, don’t drive and, if you’re driving - don’t drink. Lonta.
