I love a little break, so here’s a song for you (and reading recommendations).


Eddie Okwedy’s song is a celebration of life that takes us to Enugu in 1970 when the Biafra war ended. The map here is of a part of Enugu: where myself, my parents, their parents and parents’ parents... are from.


‘Happy Survival’ is a patient celebration of life, a graceful nod to the complexity and chance that makes us possible. It’s not beans; survival is a style.  

Press play.
