Linda, quite impressive. But I would have really commended the feat, if the face of the young "Awo" was also put up, as an inset, to compare with "new" current face! Weldone, anyways!

Historic lessons/notes I have picked up here, I would never have picked up in all my years in Secondary school because our curriculum is bland, dull. We need to beef up our History educational curriculum because there is a lot to learn asides the official stuffs and whatnot.

Because she's a queen you fools, even her own people knelt down to her during that time. Besides this was in 1956, we didn't have our independence, so we were still under her.
