Drum Goddess ARA advocates for priority

Nigeria's first female talking drummer of international repute, Aralola Olamuyiwa, better known as ARA—described as one who is very humane by sources close to her, has advocated the need for priority for the disabled, elderly, pregnant women and women with babies at various BRT Bus stops. 

The mother of drums made this advocation during a courtesy visit to the Head Office of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA)  in celebration of World Drummers Day—ARA made this known via her instagram page, saying that she was blown away and overly impressed with the orderliness, professionalism and integrity on display.

She expressed thanks in large to Engineer Abiodun Dabiri, managing director and the staff for a very warm welcome.

Speaking with Godfreytimes on the phone, ARA described this priority as also our way of life, our culture—respecting, and showing care for the elderly, disabled, pregnant women and nursing mothers.
