Blewu: An Ewe Traditional Dirge For All African Soldiers Who Fought & Died In Needless European Wars

Blewu is an ancient Ewe dirge of endearment for the Dead, to wish them a safe journey home (to the Ancestral World).

Blewu was famously performed by: Bella Bellow (Togo) in Album Denyigba.

Also on Nov 11th 2018, 100 years after Europe’s First Needless War between the Merchants of Blood, or MOBs (Europe’s great powers), Blewu was performed by Angelique Kidjo (Benin)  to once again admonish and teach current European leaders about Peace, and to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the many African soldiers who fought and died in order to bring Peace to the European Continent.

Earlier I had written against Kidjo’s performance, calling it an entertainment for the wicked, the most violent leaders the world has ever known. Several readers wrote to me personally and they have changed my mind towards that act. I have immense respect for the African men and women who died in that needless European war.

I would like to believe that our soldiers didn’t die in vain, perhaps. It wasn’t a war they would have wanted to join in after all; had it not been for the enlightened enforcement that the European Merchants of Blood (Mobs) needed to bring the war to an end. Even as the war ended, we will never forget the history that many of our heroes who survived the carnage were still betrayed by their so-called European “friends”. Some were slaughtered after the war by French Garrisons in particular, to wipe out (1) significant memories of the horror that the MOBs unleashed upon their European citizens as a result of their unrelentless greed for materialism and, (2) to wipe out Africa’s Godly contribution to ending Europe’s needless wars.

Nonetheless, our soldiers fought gallantly on a freezing midget continent to bring about some peace. Kidjo’s performance before the voyeuristic modern-day European Merchants of Blood in November 2018 is perhaps the beginning of the Respect, the Honor, that the African soldiers’ contribution to bringing civilization to Europe deserves. Although the MOBs will later jump at each other’s throats a few decades later in a Second Needless War, the contributions of African soldiers still cannot be overlooked.

The honor after all belongs to all the African men and women who relentlessly fought everywhere around the world against their will. The world, since Pharaoh Tahaka’s war to protect Judea, has always needed the enlightenment of African soldiers to bring needless wars to lasting ends. This is Blewu, an Ewe dirge, for all the African soldiers who fought and died, during and after those European wars, to bring civilization to the savage midget continent that is Europe.

Alas, will the Europeans help themselves to civilization, or will they not? Will the Europeans and their C. American partners continue to buckle under the gluttonous desires of materialism and will they continue to revert to the devilish appeals of cold wars, secret wars and perpetual wars, or will they gather enough courage and finally honor the sacred blood that Africa poured to save them from utter barbarism?
