Just as Sierra Leoneans were still digesting President Koroma’s impressive report card at the OGI-organised Presidential Town Hall meeting in the afternoon of last Saturday, Sierra Leone’s revolutionary musician Charma Bee took advantage of the euphoria to release his latest music sensation ‘Good Woke’ later that night.This time it was at the Dinner and Dance night organised by the All People’s Congress UK/Northern Ireland Branch at the Wandsworth Town Hall, in appreciation of what they described as the President’s great job in Sierra Leone.
“You have made us proud not only in Sierra Leone, but also in the international scene,” said the branch’s Chairlady Kumba Momoh during the programme.
Chama Bee’s performance brought the entire hall to a standstill as people took to the stage not only because of the sensational rhythm, but also in appreciation of the lyrics contained in the song.
The song, titled ‘Good Woke’ (meaning good job done) dedicated to President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, called on Sierra Leoneans to acknowledge the good job done by the President since taking over the leadership of the country.
The song also called on the President to continue his good job and not to allow detractors destroy the country, making references to the positive infrastructural and economic developments that have been achieved by the President and his government.
Before his performance, the musician paid tribute to the President for passing the Piracy Act into law in Sierra Leone which he described as quite unprecedented in the history of Sierra Leone.
He called on Sierra Leoneans to support the President’s good works as he strives to transform the country to a brighter future.
Also on stage that night was Alonso and gospel music sensation Gilleh Attila as well as King Masco.
