Muhammad Ali ist eines der herausragenden Beispiele, welche Kraft in einem selbst schlummert und wie man unvorstellbare Dinge erreichen kann, schlicht durch den Glauben an sich selbst, Würde, und harte Arbeit. Und genau darum geht es in ‘Bomaye’, der zweiten Single von TALCOs bevorstehendem Album AND THE WINNER ISN’T, die Muhammad Ali gewidmet ist. Muhammad Ali wäre gestern 76 Jahre geworden.
‘Ali, boma ye!’ sang the African people in Kinshasa during the historical Rumble In The Jungle, one of the biggest matches ever in sports and regarding the positive message that went along with it. Muhammad Ali won the Kinshasa match against Foreman, regaining the title he was deprived of by the US government, trying to destroy his career after he had refused to sign up for Vietnam. The story spans over great sports moments and social claims during one of American history’s most obscure times, during the war in Vietnam and racial segregation: it’s the story of a man who, contrary to any forecasts in the eighth round of the match, lights up and becomes an icon.”
