special guest: BRIGHT CHIMEZIE

BRIGHT CHIMEZIE (a.k.a Okoro Junior) is a well known traditional musician form the south-east of nigeria. a popular zzigima singer. he was born on october 1, 1960 at a time the country severed its colonial cord from britain.

>>Zzigima means Ozi I Ga Ma in Igbo language. It means the message that everyone (Africans) should know. My music is rooted in the cultural music of my people. I am out to promote African culture and African ways of life. Our people have become copycats in their manners of eating, dressing and even talking. All these have to change. Otherwise, Africans would not be different from bats that neither belong to the air nor to the land. We have to retrace our steps to our African ways of doing things, which are even superior to the European an American ways which we now imitate. That is all about Zzigima sound, the message for every African all over the world.<<



joseph dim is onowu. what does that mean?

onowu is the traditionell prime-minister for the comunity. he speaks with the politicans for the people. for their problems. he does first bevore the "Kaiser".

here in graz is the same work. helping the poor one, finding the problems, helping to solve it.

joseph tells us:
>>i am the onowu one for the steiermark. in ibo traditional culture.<<
