In the face of terror, social disorders, crimes and fading humanity, the artist has a key role to play- To speak up. The artist should stand committed. Preach peace and advocate unity. For His arts would mostly thrive in a peaceful atmosphere. The artist must advocate sanity for humanity. Bello’s poem plays on a soft and appealing language to every human being, that peace is all we need. Read and feel the message Bello passes in ALL MINDS ON DECK.



So, lets reason,
Before us is a critical season,
We shouldnt stop believing,
With optimism, we’ ll keep winning.

From Aba to Adoka,
Bariga to Asaba,
Delta to Gwagalada,
Lets reason together.

Lets allow peace reign,
Lets put a stop to violent reign,
Violence brings more loss than gain,
Lets support peace again and again.

Lets make it crystal clear,
We dont have to live with fear,
Lets create a society that is fair,
Together we can conquer fear.

-Bello, I.O
