Most of us never realize that there is a Duke in every man, and when this innate knowledge is denied, you may never run mad. In truth, in every generation, a unique Duke is sent as a catalyst to activate the Dukes within and unleash the madness required to travel the uncharted waters and navigate the roads condemned by the ignoramus of modern slavery. As a result, many lie in the valley of decision and intimidation.
Running mad most times is an ability exclusively skewed and secretly embedded in royal bloodlines, serving as a shield from the unsuspecting audience. This is because of the worth hidden in them, just like diamonds in the mother earth. Your madness is an ability to harness all the royal potential, coupled with the passion and skills of a genius, to bring to life the hidden values that benefit your world. Your madness is an ability to be eccentric in the face of humiliation on your pathway to success, ready to run naked to bring forth that innate expression of royal interest. A Duke is born with royal blood, and mostly they come without an earthly palace bequeathed to them by their earthly father. However, their hidden aura cannot be denied as they are endowed with an innate ability to enthrone themselves and rule their world. That’s the Duke spirit that I know.
I know of a Duke, neither here nor there, who always runs mad. An eccentric brand of resilience; turn him down and see the energy for the next level. The matrix of his passion cannot be measured, especially when Afang and a bowl of fufu are involved. Would you blame him? Every machine requires some sort of power to function optimally.
Duke of Shomolu! A throne skewed not for the faint-hearted but for an eccentric personality from the region of high hills where the two rivers meet and the dew above settles! A city of angels exclusively for Abasi! Beauty beyond the realms of men, where only the Dukes are crowned!
This Duke I know… An enigma! Try hard to count his fingerling dreads, and also his inspiration without walls! Yes! Tell me of anonymous nipples, to you it’s anonymous, but to the Duke, he knows it all!
Today, I honorably hail my Duke! Masere!
Happy Birthday to the Duke of dukes!!!
Long may you live!
