Teen Age Idol
Who did you idolize as a teenager? Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-ga over Duran Duran? In love with Justin Bieber? Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?

Peter Essoka
When I was a little boy,
He was my teen age idol;
I did so much admire him;
He was a broadcaster;
News presenter;
Sports reporter;
Above all, a singer;
Choir conductor.
A church man;
He was everything good in my eyes;
He amazed me; eloquent;
And so full of confidence;
He simply carried me away;
And continues to be my star today;
He’s called Peter Essoka.
A sweet friend and senior colleague;
Not many like him;
When once all seemed all over,
I told him:
The best is yet to come;
The best did come.
