Under the shade of the sun there are the probabilities as well as some determining factors that absolutely controls and alter some level of effect in the lives of many across the length and breadth of the world.

As culture seems dynamic, the effort of some people reveals such dynamism through the work, the artistic imaginations, talents, socialisation that brings people together to interact with one another as well as some powerful institutions like schools, religious institutions, etc.

Other areas that put powerful messages across the world is music and music as an inspirational tool that forge a strong union among the entire different cultures of the world and thus contributing in a diverse ways in all sort of manners.

In the realm of music, the world have seen the effort of great musicians from the western world collaborating with different artists also in the other segment of the globe in their quest for bringing entertainment as well as education in the doorsteps of the world and such great collaborations favouring Africa is that of Beyonce, the American sensation and music goddess featuring talented African artists on her Lion King album.

In July 2019, the news about Shatta Wale and Beyonce coming out with a song took Ghana, Africa and the world by surprise and it was the Already song, one of the powerful singles in the Lion King, the gift album and the lyrics have something great to tell Africa.

The powerful message Beyonce gave to Africa in the face of the world through Shatta in the part she sung in the already song as indicated below is the main motive for Africa to be great.

Let's look at the first lyrics of Beyonce in the already song and see the real message she was putting across by using Shatta Wale as the vessel to strengthen Africa.

"Long live the king, you a king, you know it

King already, already, you know it

Top everything, everything, you know it

King already, already, you know it

Mind, body, soul, got a king body

Body gon' shine, bling bling, body

Calling all the shots, ring ring, body

Crown on your head, got a king body

Long live the king, you a king, you know it

King already, my baby, you know it

Top everything, everything, you know it

King already, already, you know it

Shine already, it's time already

The line already, it's time already

Shine already, it's time already

The line already, it's time already"

It is clearly evidential that when we mention the word civilization, Africa is where it started in the ancient Egyptian era but since then, we as a continent have not had the strength to turn the fortune around.

Africa, the second largest continent out of the 7 continents of the world that is, Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, Antarctica and Australia is endowed greatly with resources.

Unlike the other six continents, Africa has a wealth of precious natural resources. Most of these commodities are highly sought after throughout the world.

Despite all the commodities naturally occurring in the continent, most nations of Africa derive little benefits from the resources.

High levels of corruption, lack of policies on wealth management, poor resource allocation, exploitation, and political instability are some of the factors that affect the continent.

These problems need to be addressed to enable the continent to benefit from the abundant resources in their hands.

Beyonce reminds Africa as being the king once ago and as the matter of urgency to rise up from it's slumber to claim the greatness it once achieved to relieve the people from hardship.

The lion is a symbol of greatness and even in the jungle, this animal is seen as the king due to it's killer instinct as well as their boldness and how the other creatures fear about them.

There are higher concentration of Lions in the continent of Africa, especially Tanzania and many others .

America had rose higher among the other greater countries like Russia, Britain, China, France, Germany and many others and the world sees America as the main focus of civilization in terms of all the other structures that reveals the greatness of a nation.

Beyonce, an American whose lineage could be traced from Africa stands to throw a challenge to the Africa continent to take the position it once occupied by putting things in the right order to make the continent the force to be reckoned with.

According to some researchers, Africa does not need an aid but the only problem they ought to have is about leadership and strengthening of all the institutions just like the western world to enable the continent to rise up again.

Good leadership brings about vast development and realisation of dreams and aspirations in their highest order and one problem about some African leaders is about indecisiveness, nepotism, preferential treatment, corruption, mismanagement and embezzlement of funds that are supposed to be used to cause greater development to the people.

Beyonce came out with her already song featuring Shatta Wale to throw more light on what the continent is supposed to be doing as in connection with the Lion King story of Africa.

Simba, a young lion whose father Mufasa got killed through the plot of Scar, his uncle got expelled from the the desert to the other part far away when Scar, the uncle wanted the hyenas to devour such a small lion.

Through the friends he met on his Way at the place he seek refuge, he was nurtured to be great once again as a fully grown lion who was told to be like a king to take the crown as he father once occupied by fighting off his uncle, Scar.

Simba's gallantry role about his return enable him to fight his uncle and the hyenas to rule the jungle once again.

Beyonce truly chose Shatta Wale, the perfect Ghanaian dance hall artiste and one of the finest African musicians to send his message to the entire world about Africa by reflecting on what the strength of Africa and the call to fight back into greatness once again.
