Nelson Mandela – a Tribute to Madiba

Nelson Mandela – a Tribute to Madiba


Tribute to Mandela
Nelson Mandela our papa
One alone who is Madiba
A pride of place in Xhosa
Of your tribe in my Africa
I’d thank you in vernacular
I am an Igbo, “dalu imela!”
And my name’s Ositadimma
A name given by my father
Thank you Mandela
Africa loves you Madiba
Get well soon Papa Africa

  2. this is sweet, nice one man…. but if time has come for him to cross over, shouldn’t we be telling him to be brave for the journey?!

    Thanks dear.

  4. @vincentdepaul we celebrate life; and in Africa we hope, for life doesn’t end.
    The last thing that dies in a man is hope. Hope you’re acquainted with the
    Confederation Cup? Did you Madiba on the jerseys?

    Have you understood Mandela yet? I dare you don’t!

  5. Nice poem Nelson Mandela sacrificed a lot for his country.I wish the current politicians will learn from him.
