Take me back to the good old days where we scurry to the front of the TV by 8 pm every Thursday to see our favourite weekly show, Super story. Whenever NEPA takes the light those days, I can remember some neighbours coming to our house to see the series, as we always turn our generator on to see the series. This drama series was arguably the best television series back then, as it is educating and inspiring. It is the show’s theme song for me, beautifully done by Essence;
” It is a Super Story, a life of strife and sorrows, It is a Super Story of Good food & houses where the fish drown or even die of thirst
, It is a Super Story, a life of Precious stones & Good Taste,
It is a Super Story, This is Super Story EEE EEAHH! This is Super Story EEE EEAHH! Story…”
I sure know you sang along, because it sure brought back old memories.
It is surely not ending there, the television series was the mother of the adage,” we are nothing but pencils in the hands of the creator”. It is the end line catchphrase of the weekly series. These words are very powerful and they require substantial Knowledge to decode its meaning. I believe events that takes place in our daily lives has been predestined to happen.
