Freedom's like a rash

Viral phenomenon Queen of Vagina is reaching pandemic levels, globally. Symptoms include painting your house whore scarlet and asking strangers if you can have sex with their penis.

I've already got a red kitchen, and well, lets just say I moved straight on to Level 3 Queen of Vagina which manifests as an obsession with Nigerian disco. A vast amount of incredible disco music poured out of the country in the late 70's/early 80's, the years of Nigerian's Second Republic. A democratic government was in power for the first time in decades, the oil driven economy was booming and the growing Nigerian music industry was developing a down-tempo afrobeat influenced take on the commerical disco sound. This song by Oby Onyioha is amazing, combining a strange metaphor of freedom as a rash that keeps on spreading with references to Humpty Dumpty. Have a ball if you want it - it's your life!

Oby Onyioha - Enjoy Your Life
