Certains coups de génie constituent presque un délit…  

Dans son texte incriminé, le rappeur Julio l’absolu a été équitable au point de donner deux couplets à chacun de ces personnages; il a été authentique, jusqu’à allouer un peu plus de temps de parole à l’un des personnages, pour mieux refléter la réalité. Après le personnage du murid extrémiste, et celui du tijaan radical, il aurait même pu ajouter le personnage de l’ibaadu “ultra-orthodoxe”, qui nous sort parfois des perles bien brillantes et brûlantes.

Que reproche t-on à cet artiste?

Il a commis l’erreur d’être brillant. Il mériterait presque un tout petit tour au trou, pour excès de brio, histoire de mitiger un peu la flamme qui l’habite. Certains coups de génie sont presque un délit.  Il arrive parfois à l’artiste, d’avoir des inspirations si brutes, si belles qu’on ne peut se permettre de ne pas les révéler. Oui, le génie a un prix. On me dira que le mot génie est une déformation de Djinn qui aspire a brouiller la société des hommes.  Je connais cette réplique.

Il a commis l’erreur de laisser ses personnages prendre en charge le discours. Avec un “je” bien marqué. Faire citer ces paroles auraient eu moins d’impacts. En se les appropriant et en les présentant au discours direct, ils ont plus d’impact. Il a usé d’une stratégie argumentative et rhétorique polémique, provocatrice, et risquée à l’air des réseaux sociaux et de la manipulation de contenu. Nettali xuloo, xuloo la.

Et enfin, il nous a exposé, en une seule prise, à une surdose de ces genres de paroles extrém(ist)es qui sont d’habitude distillés à petites doses à la population, par-ci par-là, par des orateurs zélés.

Mais le personnage de la chanson, dans un contexte de fiction, n’a pas prononcé un seul mot qui n’ait déjà été entendu en privé ou en public, dans un contexte authentique,  par des personnalités des confréries concernées, à une heure de grande écoute.

On aurait donc arrêté l’artiste. Pourquoi faire? Pour qu’il explique aux agents de la DIC le sens de son inspiration et l’essence de ses aspirations? L’art ne s’explique pas, sa compréhension requiert détachement et hauteur. Si on fait dans le pointillisme, Messieurs, il y a d’autres sujets qui requièrent votre attention. Peut-être qu’en le retenant plus longtemps, il pourrait vous passer, un peu de son génie. Qui sait?

C’est vrai qu’à la décharge de l’artiste, le Wolof dit “nettali xuloo xuloo la” (relater une dispute en génère une toute nouvelle), mais le Wolof nous commande aussi, avant d’accuser un berger, de comprendre d’abord le sens de l’air qu’il fredonne: “ba laa nga fel gemmiñu samm xamal njëk li mu walis”…

Ce texte particulier, écrit il y a un an, aurait pu passer inaperçu. Il fait surface, inopinément, à un moment critique où la population a besoin de détourner un peu son attention des inondations qui reviennent comme un cancer après la chimio. Parlant d’inondation, le wolof, encore lui, appelle l’eau “ndox”, autrement dit, celui qui marche (dox).

Trouvez un chemin à cette eau, elle obéira à sa nature, et circulera.

  15. You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I
    to find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I would by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.

    to get the cling of it!

  16. Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.

  18. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    Shame on the search engines for no longer positioning this
    publish higher! Come on over and visit my web site .

    Thank you =)

    submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not
    writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted
    to say great blog!

  21. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of
    the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both
    show the same outcome.

  22. This is really fascinating, You are an excessively professional blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and look forward to in search of more of your fantastic post.
    Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks

  23. Hey I am so delighted I found your webpage, I really found you by
    error, while I was looking on Digg for something else,
    Regardless I am here now and would just like to say kudos for
    a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to
    browse it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the awesome work.

  24. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much
    more useful than ever before.

  25. Hi are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
    create my own. Do you require any coding expertise
    to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  26. You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work
    you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you
    who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow
    your heart.

  27. whoah this weblog is wonderful i really like studying your
    articles. Stay up the good work! You know,
    many persons are searching round for this information,
    you can help them greatly.

  28. Thanks , I have recently been searching for info about this subject for a while and yours is the greatest I have
    came upon so far. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you sure about
    the source?

  29. It is perfect time to make some plans for the
    future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I may I want to suggest you few fascinating issues or suggestions.
    Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to this article.

    I desire to read more issues about it!

  30. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  31. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think about if you added some great pictures
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this
    website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

  32. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting
    article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all website
    owners and bloggers made just right content as you did,
    the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
