Our great Afrobeat King, Fela sang “Water e no get enemy”.
Meaning that, ‘Water is a friend to all and accepts everybody. Whether to Life or to Death, it delivers on its promise.’
In Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria we have an adage that says “Water alone washes dirt, dirt does not wash water”. It is against this backdrop that I present to you the fountain, filled with stones and one being prominent. I’m not sure the significance but I know the BIG one could only signify God or the main one (the leader), as this fountain is resident in a church.
As a believer, water is required during baptism, and with the word, one comes into new birth.
