A resourceful Igbo, Uzo Emenike, continues to be a big ambassador of Igbo achievement. If you listen to Beyonce’s latest album Lemonade, it is impossible for you not to listen to one of the songs that was written by Mr Emenike.
It is a great achievement to write a song that since it is sung by Beyonce would be listened to, danced to and sung by millions of people around the world. And since Beyonce always goes for the best, our congratulations goes to Emenike for making the cut.
This is Resourceful Equianoism.
