The most anticipated 2022 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) is due to be in motion. Obviously, it is pregnant with surprises and an ecstatic experience.

As Ghanaians wait to witness their National team play against the Moroccan side for their beginning match, many are those who have thrown their weights behind them with the strong belief that, in this Year Beyond Return, the trophy which has eluded the Ghanaland for long would be brought to Ghana—the Gate to Africa.

Among these many Ghanaians supporting the gallant Black Stars at home (in Ghana) are also Creative artistes 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.

It has Wiyaala’s GO, GO BLACK STARS as background music.

“GO BLACK STARS; GO AND GLOW!” implores the Black Stars to be at their best and bring joy to the many million Ghanaians who have for long, thirsted to see the trophy.

The piece was shot at a number of locations, including the Independence Arch space, Dunk community Library in Jamestown (Accra), Dansoman AstroTurf Park & Chorkor- Alhaji Community Park in 2017. It was edited by Saani Hallil with videography handled by Chris Tsikata.

Lines of the 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!
