To inform is to empower
To be informed is to be rich
So, this song is for you, Kakawa,
The unsung pantheon of our acclaimed press.
Without your accommodating platform,
Where would Times have got its fame?
How could The Guardian project its flag?
Where would Punch have got the gut to punch?
Like a blessed mum, Kakawa
Your gave ThisDay its daily bread
Tribune found a home in your friendly tent.
Thrusting Trust to the mainstream,
You gave the SUN its tabloid shine
From Vanguard to Telegraph from TELL from NEWS
Blessed we say is thy enduring soil
That projects The Nation to the reading world.
Blessed indeed is the Lagos soil
That offers the media a breaking breath.
