This collection contains the basic ideas on love, religious beliefs and philosophical teachings of Kabutu (The Eternal Prince of Life or the god of Wisdom and Learning) which vividly portrays the way the true traditional African society has understood and conceptualized them. These "Lyrics Of Kabutu" may be termed as historical facts which provides an insight of African history, World View and cultural beliefs and practices which do exist and affects the behaviour of the true African directly or indirectly. These are not poems per se but inner thoughts and emotions of a true African soul expressed in words. This book can certainly not be definitive; Kabutu and the African philosophical lyrics, in which he was and is still involve in, continue to change. For this reason, royal, academic, spiritual and legal methods are insufficient to comprehend his thoughts and nature. But the author has endured with great discipline and dedication to put some of the divine lyrics into simple grammar. These poems are to prepare the reader's thought for understanding and discovering the true African Personality and Identity.
