I don’t know what I did right in my life to come across this beautiful soul but I’m beyond grateful. Since 2014 Milkesso has uplifted me, supported, made me genuinely happy and has just improved the quality of my life so much. He has been my strength and my motivation and has shown me time and time again that regardless of the situation we are in, during the worst and best times this amazing man is ALWAYS there for me. We are so like minded and have the exact same vision for our Lives. Ready to smash life as a team. My life couldn’t be more amazing alhamdulillah. May Allah bless and protect us and our relationship.
#BlackRepresentationMatters and on top of being a bomb ass movie they did so much justice to that very much needed representation. Dark skinned women and men in their natural hair textures with that rich beautiful culture of the continent displayed throughout the movie. Tooooo much black pride #BlackPantherMovie #Revolutionary #WakandaForever
Hold it up extra high for the fallen heroes that could never do it without facing persecution. Remembering the 600+ Oromo’s back home who were killed by a stampede caused by gunfire and eruption by the Ethiopian Government, around this time last year during Irrecha - an Oromo thanks giving holiday. #IrrechaMassacre #Oromo
How many black men of today’s generation do you know that have literally given up their entire career, passion and the millions of dollars that come with it and also receive hate, vilification and become ostracised by an entire nation to stand against the injustice if his people? Coz I don’t know many. Colin Kaepernick is a God damn revolutionary to say the least. No amount of gratitude would suffice for what this man has done for the black community and what he’s gone through because he took a stand against the oppression black people experience. This guy has started a revolution and everyone else is starting to follow (finally lol!). Today over 20 players from the Cleveland Browns took a knee during the anthem prior to the game. Celebrities from P.Diddy, to J. Cole, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Lebron James, Micheal Rapaport etc have also expressed support for his campaign and movement. People are also beginning to boycott the NFL until they see change. Go Colin The Revolution!! #TakeAKnee #ImWithKap #ColinTheRevolution #ColinKaepernick #BlackLivesMatter #NFL #BoycottTheNFL #WhiteSupremacyIsTerrorism
'The people of Syria, Iraq, Libya and nations all over Africa and the Middle East are fighting for survival against the most deadly imperialist wars history has ever known.' ... 'The corporate media has effectively positioned the creators of the crisis [Western Imperialist countries] as the victims' saviors.' #PS #BushDid911
“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented” – Elie Wiesel
Martin Luther King also expressed “The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict…[an individual] who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it”
'Martin Luther King Jr.’s quote provides another voice that starkly outlines the damage caused by neutrality, but it also leads to one of the primary ways we can build a culture of active response to injustice'

Honoured to have met the G.O.A.T that has heavily contributed to Oromo music, culture and art since the early 1960's with his Afran Qallo music band, during a time where it was illegal to sing in afaan Oromo, until now in 2017. Over half a century of Oromo excellence! And yet still Dr.Ali Birra hasn't lost that soul and vibrance that the world knows him for #Legend #KingOfEastAfrica #AliBirra #AfranQallo #Oromo #AfricanJazz
