The sea is rough, the tide is high. But, we will build the ship that will break through this iceberg of despair. Whether a Muslim, Christian or a traditional worshipper does not matter. Fulani, Yoruba or Igbo is identity. What is key is the unity to save ourselves from the consequences of hate and greed. When we live in love, good things happen. When we open our hearts to understanding each other, our lives become rich.
State Affairs had been airing without Obilo while he was away and many of his fans expressed fears that the controversial and heartbreaking exits he has made in the past had not occured again.
