On 22 October 2002 Jamaica singer shaggy release his sixth studio album, Lucky Day. Three singles were released from the album, among them, 'strength of a woman'.
A line-phrase in the song captured the writers' imagination about the type of lady-girl-woman every African man including the writer, like Ice prince wants to marry.
The word marriage would chase young men like me into a ghost bomb territory.
In fact the idea of me finding love would chase somebody away. But in the world of assumption, let say if Shaggy's lyrics were actually meant for his found love, then most of us wouldn't mind jumping in front of train to get to that lady.
The idea behind matrimony is being happy, there is no happiness like the joy you derive from your family.
Our Family is our strength. Legendary Billy Ocean used to think that love was just a fairy tale.
Simply not understanding why that first hello, why that first smile would suddenly have a new meaning to us.
But like a cat, she wants attention, like an egg she is fragile, like a baby she needs protection, but a good woman like a lioness protects her cubs.
And would die doing so. With her smile She will keeps you, with her style she will advise you, with her strength, she will encourage you, she sacrifice for you and when everyone doubt you, she believes in you more than you believed in yourself.
At the end, you'll have her signature all over you. If ever as a man, old or like myself, you ever found that woman, treat her like a queen, don't yell at her. Listen to her. For Shaggy still wonders how the world would be; if God is a woman.
