  1. A brave and courageous man. He will never be forgotten like you said.

  2. This is beautiful! People like Mandela, Fela etc can never be forgotten for the impact they made on their generation. It is very sad to see south africans ruling against what such a great man fought against by driving Nigerians away. May God help us all

  3. Well said @Emete Smart. Mandela stood for what he believed in, todays he is Our Hero. we should all stand for what we believe in. STAND FOR PEACE! STAND FOR JUSTICE!
