YORUBA WOMAN: Who are you?  Where are you from?  I am Yoruba! I am not Japanese! We Yoruba people do not require doing that.  I have nothing to do with it.

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: It doesn’t matter what tribe or nationality you are! Are you ready to do your share of communal activities?

YORUBA WOMAN:  “Yoruba tribe is very clean people.  I am also a Pentecostal.”

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: “Excuse me, but…this is not about religion…”

YORUBA WOMAN:“Madam, I tell you what, go to China or U.S. to tell them to reduce carbon dioxide.   I am busy.  I have work to do.”

(Slams the door)

JP WOMAN: “What happened here?”

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: Oh hello neighbor!  I am going around in the neighborhood on this community earth.  I am a CLEAN-UP WOMAN and am asking everyone on earth to join our communal activity.

JP WOMAN: What is that communal activity?

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: Cleaning up the earth, madam.

JP WOMAN: Oh sorry, I am a Japanese.  See the British lady over there…?  You should talk to her.”

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: No, no, I am looking for any residents on earth.  Will you do the communal activities together?  See, our community is getting very dirty.  We need to clean up the earth urgently or climate change will get to us!

JP WOMAN:  “I do community work with Japanese in my village like making sushi rolls.  Here is the British lady.  You work with her ok? Hello”

BRITISH WOMAN: What is it?

KENYAN WOMAN: “Please listen to her, she needs to do some community work.”

BRITISH WOMAN: Sorry dear, I am very busy and don’t have time for anything.

CLEAN-UP WOMAN: We have to hurry on cleaning up the earth together!  Or you will suffocate yourself with too much carbon dioxide.  (cough)”

IBEATYOU TRIBE WIFE: Humm.  Your offer is impossible my dear.  I was born into this Ibeatyou Tribe and I cannot be free from it.

MOSES: Actually you can.  In fact, you do not have to deal with all that non sense of serving abusive husband while no police ever come to rescue you when you cry out for help—only because you are woman.

IBEATYOU TRIBE WIFE: How could that be possible.  I do not get it.

MOSES What I mean is that you are going to start making your own money without depending upon your husband and one day you pack all belongings and take off for freedom. I will teach you step by step how to get out of all this misery in your life.

NARRATOR: Moses, the man of God, today’s prophet, taking the leadership of oppressed in Nigeria started on-line business by a piece of mobile phone and Moses rescued them out of slavery to fate, where he encountered the God of Israel in the form of a “burning bush“. After some discussion with God, he came out and contacted this radio show, Global Eco Theater, and now here he is.

(Theme music begin)

EKO: …so we have a guest today. His name is Moses. Moses, will you tell us about yourself?

MOSES “(clearing his throat) Ladies and gentleman, my name is Moses, a prophet in Nigeira. I got a message from God the other day, and here is the deal. God want you to help the oppressed in Nigeria. Particularly, those live under the $1 a day. Please give them some business to do on mobile so that they can make money by using the mobile telephone. Oh, if you give money to government, the money gets lost before it reaches them. Many don’t have computer but only mobile phones. God says he will bless those who can do the needful. Thank you.”
