THE JOURNEY HOME

The Journey Home has been from Ghana in West Africa to Europe and back to Ghana. The album comprises a few of the genres — African-rock fusion, African, reggae — played with some great musicians.

During these journeys, great epiphanies have come to a man. Pain, prejudice, and misery were part of the experience but these were overcome.

Despite the adversities, the greatest discovery of all is the beauty of Human Beings, I have found friendship, true love, and happiness.

I give back to all the thousands of people I have met, the wisdom and LOVE you have shown me.

I truly appreciate your friendship, sisterhood, and brotherhood.

From Ghana to Israel to Palestine to Cornwall to Surrey to Wales to France to West Sussex to many parts of the UK to Spain to Italy to Russia to Czechoslovakia to Germany to Belgium to Holland, I give thanks to you all whom I have met for your love.

I have met and played with extraordinary musicians in all genres of music, from hi-life to classical to blues to pop to rock to reggae to soul to funk to jazz to klogoh to adowa to abaja to rap and more.

To all you beautiful people, you’re all dearly and immeasurably loved.

LOVE LIGHT UNITY PEACE HEALTH WEALTH JOY to you all.

LET THE LIGHT SHINE and LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH.
