Exactly two years ago today (May 25th 2017) I ate lunch (pounded yam and egusi soup) with Samir Le Blanc, a good friend from Parakou, Benin. Samir introduced me to the beautiful people of Benin, from little Marie to the artist Sincelor and musician Maasta I’Indomptable MC.
Samir was a gentle soul, going through life in slow motion. He assisted me with crossing the Benin/Nigeria border on several occasions. Samir transitioned suddenly last year, a shock to his family and friends. Rest in peace Samir you are deeply missed. – @OgbeniAyotunde
