OSUS SHALL LIBERATE OURSELVES!
Latest Activity: Apr 9, 2013
I have an interesting heritage. I am born of two people whom Nigeria looks down upon. My mother is Urhobo from Warri where I was born. My father is Osu and I did not know of that until later in our lives when he decided to share stories with me about his life in Igboland. My parents met in Port Hartcourt while in school and returned to live in Warri and later my father found work in Canada where I spent nearly all of my life. I was raised as a proud Ibo and never knew much about my mom being Urhobo or about my father being Osu. My mother had so little to say about her heritage but became weary of my questioning and finally began to share. Once she began her stories, she was like a fountain that could not stop watering. I pledged that one day Urhobo and Osu children will be proud to be who they are. When I asked my dad about Osu, a look of shame came across him and soon I realized, he and I were part of the Osu people. Well, I read much about my heritage as Igbo but little did I know of my Urhobo people and never did anything about the Osus. I promise to learn and give my son all of his heritage proudly. The time is now for me to keep the promise I made. I believe Osu Liberation is up to the Osu not the Igbo. So let us liberate ourselves. My Osu father married an Urhobo woman and she did not die, nor was she cursed. She is a blessed woman whom had great things happen to her, since meeting my father. So I believe prayer changes things and if you are a man or woman of prayer, then you can overcome any curse and get to know the God of all gods is fully in power.
