Alhaji Kollington Ayinla ~ Blessing

Alhaji (Chief) Prof.
Kollington Ayinla
And His Fuji 78 Organization
Kollington KRLPS 027
side one:
E Ye Ika Se
Oromo Adie Fo
Ko S'Ohun Tan O Le Fi Gberaga
Adio Shile
Won Ti Gbe Oye Fun Mi

"Every morning when the Gazelle wakes up it knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be eaten. Every morning when the Lion wakes up it knows it must run faster than the slowest Gazelle or it will starve. So it doesn't matter if you are a Lion or a Gazelle.. when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

I just found that proverb. It made me laugh.
