Childhood memories

This song takes me back to the '80's. I was a 5-year old, running bare footed in my village in Nigeria. I remember my uncle playing this on his little radio back then. I remember how carefree life was and the pleasures I had in just playing with my mates. We didn't have much then, but life was beautiful. I remember not having dolls, but using weeds instead. My mates and I would uproot fibrous weeds wash them to get rid of the sand, then form the roots into hair. We would use old rags as clothes for our 'dolls'. We were really innovative!

So enjoy this beautiful song by Sonia Spence called 'Where is the love?'
