"She Comes On Sundays" and One Hour Interview On the BBC Radio


"She Comes On Sundays" and One Hour Interview On the BBC Radio

I have produced two singles. But I never released them commercially. I composed them as works of Art for performance. The first one "Hardway To Broadway" was recorded on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, California when I was 21 and loved rock music and had black and white girlfriends who loved rock music.

I was a romantic Roman Catholic youth who was as naughty as smooching a girlfriend in between the pews inside the church. Seal's hit song "Crazy" comes to mind.
"Hardway To Broadway" was fully copyrighted under my name Mike Nelson Chima Eke with a copy in Library of Congress, 101 Independence Ave SE, Washington, DC 20540, USA. But before, I could be lost, I became Born Again in a Pentecostal church. Bye, bye to my dreams of rock and roll and Hollywood. But in 2003, after successfully directing my play "Sleepless Night" at the French Cultural Centre in Ikoyi, featuring Segun Adefila and his Crown Troupe of Africa and the narrator was the highly gifted actor, Funso Alabi of blessed memory; I composed and produced another single, "She Comes On Sundays" using a group of three young guys who sang a popular hit song, "Chinyere" and performed at Miss Moremi beauty pageant of the University of Lagos in 2001. Their rendition of the song was good enough for the BBC Radio to play it during a one hour interview on my performance poetry. And I gave the master copy to the BBC Radio for keeps. The song was based on a true life experience in romance with a girlfriend who always visited on Sundays after church.

Husband Controller


Husband Controller
A man brought his wife to the church years ago. He said in a shaking voice, “My wife needs deliverance.” One way or the other, he had discovered that this woman was openly being unfaithful to him.  .And in those days, we didn’t know all we know now about deliverance. We were ready to pray for anything. If you brought a goat then, we would pray for the goat, we never asked questions. So as soon as he said his wife needed deliverance, we began to pray. We bound, we loosed, we prayed in tongues, we prayed in understanding. We did everything we knew, but nothing happened.
When we were tired, we ask, “Ah, ah, God what else do we do? This woman has refused to be delivered, what is going on?”
God said, “Have you asked her if she wants deliverance?”
So we asked the woman, “Woman, do you want deliverance?”
She said, “No.”
Why? Why not?
She said, “The power I use to control my husband, do you want me to lose it?” She continued, “Ask him, he is the one who drives me to my boyfriend’s house while he sits in the car to wait for me. I will go upstairs to find pleasure with my boyfriend. When I finish, I  come down and he will drive me home. Do you want me to lose that power?"

Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines Documentary Film



Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines: New Independent Feature Documentary Reveals How Successive Governments Collude With Business and Breach Our Human Rights


LONDON, July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Belonging, the Truth Behind the Headlines: This independent feature documentary has already had rave reviews*. The film starts its UK independent cinema tour in London's West End on the 26th July 2017 at the Prince Charles Cinema with Q&A with Director Morag Livingstone. The film then travels from Orkney to Exeter over the following few months. Dates are listed here (more to be announced soon):http://www.belonging4us.com/Screenings.php

(Photo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/538283/Belonging_Documentary.jpg )

Producer / Director Morag Livingstone states: "I went into this film trying to make sense of a few things I had read in the news and had heard in Prime Minister's Questions. As a result I've uncovered both collusion at the heart of government and a secret government plan long suspected by many, but not proven - until now."

Film Information:


Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines is an investigative feature-length documentary about where power lies in the United Kingdom. Re-examining Rupert Murdoch's purchase of The Times and The Sunday Times in 1981 and events surrounding 3 industrial disputes, 3 governments and over 3 decades: News International dispute (1986/7), Royal Mail as it prepared for privatisation (2007/8) and a dispute at the Grangemouth Oil Refinery in Scotland (2013), Belonging explores what has happened behind closed doors of successive UK governments and the resulting impact on all of our human rights. In this film there are many revelations - not least a secret government plan to destroy community and collectivism that affects us all.

Heart-wrenching personal stories are told by those at the centre of three industrial disputes, not only highlighting the impact of the actions of those in power on individuals and communities, but also raising the question of what lies ahead. This is a film that will not tell you how to think but will ask you to think again.
