Chocolate City‘s MI Abaga has released a tribute .. a song dedicated to the Victims of the Brutal Lynch of the 4 University of Port Harcourt students which took place at the ALUU Community in Port-Harcourt.

Its a Touching & Very Great Song! We Hope Everyone Would Learn From This & Put Key Measures In Place To Avoid Future Occurrence(s).

“4 young men died at the hands of a lynch mob on the 5th of October 2012. Whether or not their deaths will mean anything, or fade out of our minds as just another meaningless tragedy, is up to us and what we do from here on.

I hope this song captures that message. Nothing would be worse than for a death to mean nothing.

Nothing.” – MI Abaga.

We were down a sandy beach,

All night talking to your mouth’s words.

Tell me where you would like to be.

Tonight don’t be afraid to dream.

Lean on the fire for a while.

Cause in the morning it’ll all just be ashes on the ground

Instead it be them, let it be me.

Since I will die inevitably,

Then let it be, that it be said

When I am dead: some other was free, some other was fed

Some other, not me, was able to see

That long as we live inside a country where no one is safe,

No one is safe.

We only evade, try to escape

The imminent doom

But closer the date looms.

It comes for all.

If we must go, then at least,

When we fall…

When we’re all ashes…

If I am slain, let them forever remember the name

Some other should gain.

When we’re all ashes…

Because of my pain. Because of my tears because of my scars

Some other should gain.

When we’re all ashes…

The reason I’m gone. Let it be told, let it be known, and turned into song

When we’re all ashes…

If I die alone. Let it be more than dying alone, the reason I’m gone.

The reason I’m gone.

Instead it be sleep.

Let it be hate, let it degrade.

Let it be deep.

Some other should weep

Some other should keep

The memory of

The way that I died

Maybe a change, some other can try

At least we can lie. At least we can hope

At least we can say

tomorrow is better, it wont be today

Some other can pray

Some other can fight

The wrong done to me some other can right.

Then maybe my death can save some other life

For then I would gladly give another life

When we’re all ashes…

Let it be worth

Let it be so some other can live. Let it be birth.

When we’re all ashes…

As I am hurt

As I pass, let it be last, let it be first

When we’re all ashes…

Don’t let them forget

The only regret is that we relent. We all should repent..

When we’re all ashes…

If I die alone,

Let it be more than dying alone. The reason I’m gone

The reason I’m gone

Feels like I stood there watching,

the pain the brutal torture

And added my silence to the violent screams

Of: Burn and torch em.

How do you earn misfortune?

Or does it come unbidden?

If life’s a painted portrait,

Who puts dark colors in them?

If there’s a God in heaven,

Surely he’s weeping now.

As all the blood is shedding

As all His people drown.

God help us all.

Rest in peace Chidi.

Rest in peace Lloyd

Rest in Peace Tekena

Rest in Peace Ugonna

Rest in peace to the Students murdered in Adamawa state.

Rest in peace to those two young girls.
