The cult of Mansa Musa

There is a quiet movement happening right under our eyes, that we have allowed to seep into our consciousness. This movement epitomised by kneegrows today that is a cult. It’s a cult of personality worship. This cult behavior has made us create a sub cult I call the cult of Mansa Musa.

Periodically when I look across my time line on anti social media, I see references to Mansa Musa, juxtaposed against the barbarism of Europe. And what do they use as a measuring stick? His wealth. As if wealth was ever the barometer of traditional Afurakan greatness.

Not his great military feats like Hannibal Baca, T’chaka of the Zulus, Yaa Asantewaa or Ramses the second….to name a few. What the members of the cult of Mansa Musa promote is his wealth in blinging out his trip to mecca.

I mean really people….what great war of liberation did Mansa Musa fight? What rebellion or revolution did he lead against an invader or colonizer? What great monument did he build, that we could definitively point to as attributed to him?

Yet we romanticized this Afurakan who converted to a foreign invader’s reLIEgion. We get giddy over him going to mecca and making it rain, like he was in a strip club, along his journey. Depressing the economy or depreciating the local currency of every state he travelled through.

We are such a celebrity obsessed people, enthralled by bling, bling and the image of material excess that the notion of character building and sacrifice for the greater good, tends to be lost on the celebrity worshippers.

Even today, many so-called conscious folks will hold up Mansa Musa and the image of him travelling to Mecca as the apex of high culture. But in holding up Mansa Musa, they serupticiously hold up Islam as the epitome of Afurakan culture. Islam is considered as a traditional Afurakan culture, if you follow some people who come from generations of Islamic conversion. Keep in mind that Islam first started enslaving Afurakan people in the year 1200. And as the Libyan saga exemplifies, Arob enslavement of migrating Afurakans, this is how they view those who aren’t Muslim.

In traditional Afurakan culture no single individual controls the wealth of the nation. Even in gold heavy Ghana, where the people like to drape gold all over the traditional asantehene (king), he still does not control the wealth of the people. Yet Mansa Musa was purportedly the wealthiest man in the world and had the audacity to spread Mali’s wealth from the western part of the continent, all the way across to Mecca in the east.

In effect he controlled the wealth of the people. How Arob like is that? Look at the Saudis and the UAE and tell me how that works out for the people under that oppression.  Look at black people’s other man crush…Muammar Gaddafi. Most of what kneegrows talk about was how he spread his wealth among his people and to some select Afurakan nations. Ignoring the fact that Gaddafi was a staunch Pan Arob militant.

European enslavers, like the Arobs, could never penetrate into the earliest part of the dark continent, until the idea of converting the leader, was found to be the surest way to convert the people. Because the people saw the leaders action as being beneficial to the people. This is why Christian missionaries are still dirtying up parts of the continent with the filthiness of converting men, women and children with the homophile reLIEgion of christianinsanity. Similar to the rapist reLIEgion of Islam.

I know his will offend many and I don’t care. I don’t care what Christian’s think because they can never hide the fact that missionaries in Afuraka claim to be anti homophiles, yet molest little girls, boys and women. And not one Muslim has answered my challenge to come out and explain why your black ass see the oppression of Afurakans by Islamic terrorists and do nothing about it.

Not one can honestly expressed that Arobs have and still castrate young men and rape women AND men. Keep in mind while there are some Arobs that actually converted to Christianinsanity, Islam is synonymous with them. And Islam fights against traditional Afurakan culture, just like christianinsanity.

And no, when I say Islamic terrorists, I am not talking about those Boko Haram terrorists, but regular muslims, who promote the notion that blacks are slaves and abid means a slave. Not slave to Allah….but slave….to any Arob with $500. This was overstood since Islam’s inception in 600 AD. So it does not matter that the original term meant slave to Allah, today the Arobs call all blacks slaves and the black muslims will look the other way.

Just like the black conscious folks who prop up Mansa Musa are propping up a cruel traitor, who swapped Islam and the favors of a foreign invader culture for his traditional one.

Mansa Musa is not and can never be a hero of mine. He never killed any savage or camel fucker to defend Mali. He never built any walls or garrison to keep out the invaders. All he did was continue the tradition that was first started in Kimit. Of inviting a vampire culture into the land to bespoil it and turn the population into something their egungun and traditions differed from.

We need to stop this cult of Mansa Musa, where we are celebrity obsessed with famous people who have done nothing for the culture, the people or the tradition that was old when every other nation on the planet where either young or were not yet conceived.

    Although a lot of people do not want to admit it, we suffer from the same sickness that white Americans suffer from because we have lived in this country isolated from our spiritual culture, for a long time. We have always had a romanticized view of Africa for all the wrong reasons. We parade and talk about how the Moors run Spain but fail to mention their involvement in the slave trade. We talk about how wealthy Mansa Musa was but do not see his involvement in Islam promotes another religion that is foreign to Afrikan thinking. Conscious folks are all about being conscious but they will not understand African metaphysics and spirituality and learn how to correct many of the errors we have acquired living under the beast because it is all part of the American psychosis that we suffer from. Until we embrace our ancestral culture, we will forever be chained to some false idea of what we think liberation is.

    1. Nokware asafo. The more we learn the more we should know that we are still in the throes of learning and that we must humble ourselves in order to learn more still. There is so much we dont know about our culture and traditions that it is incumbent on us to act like we are but children the first day of school. So many of us read a book, hear a lecture and think we have e a PhD in rhetoric.
