"The Return of Supa Chompia"

Supa Chompia first appeared on "Green Card". An african super hero kid dashing around various parts of Africa getting various disasters under control.

The first episode and this return on "Orange Card" were both co-produced by Kweku Ananse.

I created this character to fill a void Captain Planet left. This is an african child with powers who is environmentally & socially conscious so uses his enhanced abilities to heal the continent.

I feel we need a lot of fictional african heroes that children can identify with at an early age. We plan to release animation videos and children's comics on this character.

"Supa Chompia" is a way of saying "Super Champion"

lyrics

Merrr
Oh no!
A wounded goat
Someone used a blunt knife to wound the throat
Check ma juju bag 4 som kokonte powder
Mixed with rain water
And zomi quarter
Applied it to the neck
And checked the temperature
Everytin was cool
Dis fool will get better
Headed further west with fresh tswapia
The best
At the request
Of Ayi Kwei Armah
He had a guest
I guessed it was Ms Haruna
Made me a vest
On the chest
The crest of Nubia
Made 2000 copies
Of 2000 Seasons
For 2000 readings
In 2000 regions
The vibes over there were very pleasing
But I had to head East coz it was teasing
At the bark of a dog I jumped on the back of a bat
Landed in Kibera & heard...

Who b dat?
Supa chompia...
Ah I hear of am
E b stronger than...
Superman
Wey e powers b...
African

Magicians
Who b dat?
Supa chompia...
Ah I hear of am

Magicians

The whole Kibera
Then pipe no dey flow
So I gather the plastic
Spit fire
Wey I mould
Huge water tank out of am
Wey I go
Stand the hilltop chant mek the wind blow
Clouds start gather norr rain start fall
The water tank fill with enuff 4 all
We plant potatoes wer den the borla dey
The youth leader deem dat day holiday
Yayyyy!
But no time to party oh
Supa Chompia I jump wey I land Soweto
Apartheid tear e body apart wey e hide
I redistribute d land wey dey start cry
Many tears of joy
Few of wickedness
Sangoma destroy weapons with a quickness
Penguins start fight I whistle jump on ma bat
Back to west africa
Wey dey ask...

Who b dat?
Supa chompia...
Ah I hear of am
E b stronger than...
Superman
Wey e powers b...
African
E mommy den poppy be...
Magicians
Who b dat?
Supa chompia...
Ah I hear of am
E b stronger than...

Magicians

Splash!!!
I crash into Makoko
Den ma bat dey sick
B like e get kooko
I giv am agbalumo
Wey I say carry on
I turn see pete dey feed on carrion
Small juju boy u must help us now
Dem dey demolish wana homes just anyhow
I start chant wey I suspend above the lagoon
Wey I cover the whole place with a golden dome
So only those worthy fit exit or enter
Magic gari soak up all the oil for the delta
Der norr wey I ride bonsu to volta
E tell me say now d biggest fish b tilapia
Sake of antibiotics from China
I bore go slap d wrong one den e b miner
U polluted our rivers so take it like dat
As I fly off on my bat wey e ask...

Supa chompia...
Ah I hear of am
E b stronger than...

Magicians
