Ikwun Mokon-Okoitiho

Ikwun Mokon-Okoitiho (To Live is To Hope)

It is true indeed that the style of a man is the image of his mind, the choice and command of language are the fruit of experience. In traditional Idoma’s society the elders speak in proverbs, reflecting a colourful oral tradition. The proverb subject of this song translates the fundamental optimism and philosophy of the Idoma people: Despair is really inadmissible, even in deepest adversities.
