Growing up in the hood wasn't easy for the none rich people, I remember back then when we only had Black and White tv, the antenna will be at the top of the tv and daddy will be tuning it for him to watch the news, we didn't even have a cd player back then, i and big bro sometimes go to our neighbor's house to watch tv, until when my uncle bought the first colored tv we had, though the sellers cheated him, it was all fine.
A few weeks later a Dvd player also came to the house which is good a the goal for us is at least we won't be going to our neighbors always, we shall be doing the watching from home, that was when a popular tv station were showing a drama series titled “Superstory” the 90 kids in my country will definitely know about it, not that they are not to showing it now, but the ones they are showing now are not worth watching again.
Back then, the drama they use to show in the super story was so touching, you won't even know when you will start crying, I remember when they were about to show the final episode of the super story drama that year and there was no power supply in the area, you will see people leaving their homes at 8 pm just to go watch the final episode, I elder siblings and neighbors went to watch the finally the episode, which I tagged along cause they can't leave this little kid at home alone, haha.
Though I wasn't paying much attention and the place that we were watching it was filled up like we were about to watch the world cup finals, back then, it was rare to see people that use generators, unless you own a business like a bar, that's when you will see the need to buy a generator, back then it was the small tiger generator (known as I beta pass my neighbor) that was on board as the whole street was there and they were just focused on it, I have never seen people so focused before.
After the final episode, everyone went home moody and some were even crying in the place cause it was so touching, I don't remember what it was all about but I believe the country people that are older than me here can remember it, that is if they watched it back then.
The series was about a girl, named Amaka, its like she and her mother has been suffering and something happened to the mother and they rushed her to the hospital, the doctor told her the amount, which she went in search of the money, on her way she stepped on a nail when she went back to the hospital, the doctor noticed the way she walks and she was asked if all is well and she said yes, she didn't treat the leg she used to step on the nail because she thought that they might charge her for it, she later died due to the nail injury, which made many to cry.
I don't know if that's actually how the drama went, cause I was very young when I watched it, so I don't fully remember, but one thing I know for sure is that she died because of the nail and she refused to tell the doctor because she doesn't have money to pay for treatment, after all the suffering she went through in the series, so many people was so heartbroken, but that's the fact about life.
Not everyone's struggles will lead to success, Some will get drowned in the struggle while some still excel in life, sometimes is not what about how knowledgable you are (but try to get knowledge so you can be an asset, no matter how small they pay for it) sometimes the battle might be from home or environment, I have seen some people struggle for so long and they are still suffering till today.
Sometimes I wonder why life can be unfair to some and also be fair to others, well, I guess that's just life being life.
