about

Alhaji Waziri Oshomah begins his sermon before a dancing crowd.

We’re in a small part of Edo State in southern Nigeria called Afemailand, which is known for being a harmonious region where Muslims and Christians live—and dance—together.

Waziri wrote this song to celebrate acknowledging one’s own success in life, even if there are those out there who want you to fail. With his wife on backup vocals, Waziri goes toe to toe with a muted, shuddering trumpet as he defends his achievements: “My enemies will never succeed in their plot to bring me down,” he sings, “whether in the morning, day or night, because I wish nobody evil in my life.”
