THE VILLAGE BOY GOES HOME ( SIR JOHN )

THE VILLAGE BOY GOES HOME
Indeed, you’re a legend!
You served humanity with courage!
You served your purpose!
You painted your village to the world!

Proud native of Sakora Wonoo,
Fare thee well as you join your ancestors!
There, you live on forever!
There you’ll be revered more than the living!

Who ever thought the village boy would shine to be known all over the world?
Cocoa ase Kuraseni known as SIR JOHN,
You taught us, village boys, to be proud of our village,
Your life taught us that hardwork pays,
You taught us the value of sacrifice!

Wofa Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie,
I wished you lived a little longer,
I wished you nurtured us a bit further,
Wofa, man proposes but God disposes!

Farewell to the land of the ancestors!
Village boys never die,
Rest well, Rest in power!
Damirefa due, due, due, due ne amanehunu!
