Everything that happens has an explanation. One day, I took my Kamale
Ngoni and went to the fatherland, and came to play for the people of Wassoulou, of Bamamko.


Being young means being ignorant, so I call the youth to learn from the elders. They are the ones owning wisdom and knowledge. Life is a journey, life is a compromise, life is a conversation. Enjoy it, but get rid of ignorance, go around the world and learn. I ask God to forgive the twins Bourema, Diara - my dad.
