Guyana Golden Jubilee – Oh How Happy can Guyana be! – music video by Chris Prashad

Published on Apr 29, 2016  – By Chris Prashad

This song was written at a time when external political forces pitted the two major ethnic groups in Guyana against each other, when true democracy was sabotaged, and conflicts against each group were deliberately instigated. It is my hope that through this song, commemorating our Independence from the British colonial masters the healing process would begin.  

I too was politically victimized and my work was never given the recognition it deserved. It is time that all of us Guyanese take a good look at ourselves and shed all animosity against each other because of skin color and origin. We were never like this in the 50’s and early 60’s. We are One People, One Nation, with One Destiny. Yes we are all Guyanese and should identify as such not by race. Cherish the message in this song, and let the healing process begin and continue way into the future. Here is where our Educational institutions can play a major role. Let the truth be known.
