Money, Music & Monarchy
by Joseph O. Okewa
MONEY, MUSIC AND MONARCHY explores three human desires: Wealth, Fame and Power. Fulfilment of one of the desires leads to the craving of another. When we crave for wealth and get it, fame becomes an obsession, and ultimately power. Wealth, Fame, and Power are legitimate cravings, just how to fulfil the individual desires legitimately to uplift the society is what matters. The writer explores the meaning of money, the process of acquiring wealth legitimately, how to allocate wealth for the betterment of the society and how to promote sustainability in wealth endowment. He looks into what makes good music, the power in the music, good music practices, music as a tool that transcend cultural barriers, and music in everyday life. In monarchy, he tackles the world of politics and power, and leadership.
