Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A set of primary school students of Como Elementary’s Leadership Academy in the US has become popular after their video rapping about their life’s aspirations surfaced on the internet.
With the support of their teachers, the kids took turns to deliver a brilliant cypher in their bespoke black suits and face masks, NowThis reports.
It is really commendable that the students as young as they are never stuttered on their words as they delivered strong bars.
Their performance will rival many rappers' because their words are clear enough for a listener to easily understand.
One of the kids said:
“I’m grinding each and every day so I can live another day… When education is the key, success is not too far away.”
“Oh yeah, you never see me coming through, intelligent I thought you knew… young, black, and gifted…”

This is not the first time a kid will be deploying rap as a way of expression. Recall that Sam earlier rhymed about the ABC alphabet as a way to teach.
In a video that has been watched millions of times, the boy infused enough gusto into his art that anybody would love to go back to their ABC. His father acted as his hypeman as he sat behind him to support his performance.
When he started, he said:
"You can be an A, you can be an Architect... You can be a B, a Biochemist, making medicines and saving lives"
Days after his video went viral, he was invited to the Ellen Show where he talked about how his dad gave him the idea for the rap song after he had been rapping for about a year.
