ABOUT THE MUSIC:
This musical album was co-produced by African Joe and the legendary Doc Holiday. Most of African Joeâs songs are socio-political in nature, and they are based on his real life experiences and his strong sense of justice; as well as his disgust against corruption, hypocrisy, terrorism, and racism. For example, despite his numerous outstanding qualifications, he was rejected repeatedly for employment within his professions, apparently because of his color and/or nationality.
Determined not to be a burden on society, he established a limousine business which soon became âthe bestâ in a tightly competitive environment; but, unfortunately, he was illegally forced out of business by the racist York County local government in Virginia who conspired with Joeâs White competitor. Joe was also assaulted by a New York City police officer when he went to the police precinct for help. Besides, he was a victim of the notorious racial profiling on the New Jersey Turnpike by the New Jersey State Police. And he was unjustly and unfairly prosecuted by the Federal Government without being read his Miranda Rights. These unfortunate events have had negative effects not only on Joe himself, but also on his daughter, Adesuwa, who contributed to this musical album. This CD album is an educational and historical material presented in entertainment form.
Despite the seemingly satirical nature of some of African Joe's songs, they are all intended to promote human rights, equality, justice, racial unity and harmony, and the utopian concept of World Citizenship. Although he has been repeatedly victimized by the Racist Super-structure and Institutionalized Racism within the American society and culture, Joe strongly believes that many white people are good-natured, as evidenced by his white friends, acquaintances, colleagues, fellow scholars, and clients. However, he also strongly believes that until the arrival of that Day and Time whence-forth, according to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., every person, regardless of his/her color or nationality is judged by the merits of the person's character and abilities, there will be no True Peace in America and the rest of the World.
As with most Americans and many citizens of other countries, Joe Eweka (African Joe) was devastated by the events on September 11, 2001. Restless about the events, he was unable to sleep for days. He wrote the two versions of âAmerican Spiritâ in this album on September 12, 2001, and produced the album a few weeks later under the title: "American Spirit." He detests corruption, violence, terrorism in any form, oppression of the poor and defenseless, and any kind of injustice and police brutality.
Some of Joeâs songs that specifically address such issues include: Mighty Babylon; American Spirit; I've Been There; Why? Is It The Color Of My Skin?; Apartheid; All We Need Is Liberty; Blacks & Whites Unite; Stealing In The Name Of The Lord; Lament; Jealous; Victim of Circumstance; Pick On Somebody Your Size; Iâm Feeling Ghetto Fabulous; War In No Man's and; Religiuos Robbery; Life Is A Walking Shadow; Money; Love; War Against Discipline; Eucation And Unemployment; Hypcritical Friendship; Paradise; Those Bullets Must Not Be Forgiven; Give Us A Chance; Give Peace A Chance; Midday Darkness; Beauty In Diversity; My Heart Is In Inferno; Utopia; This World Is Not Mine; Rock My Groin; What I Know Now; World Peace; Love To Have My Blackness Back; Sun Rays; I Have More Freedom Than My Captors And Oppressors; When Will You Come To My Rescue?; Post-Humous Fame; New York; Kindness; We Are Inmates; Bless These "Nuts"; African Identity; Unforgiven Society; Natty Dread; and some others he has written since the early 1980s. Most of Joe Ewekaâs songs were first written as poems before being converted to songs.
Joe is currently writing four books which are scheduled to be published in a few years.
