Elegba is Oshoosi’s best friend from jail. Elegba seems to be in love
Start: Yeah didn’t know that; wouldn’t know that.
He had just got in there good.
He hadn’t been in there that long ‘t all.
But he was strong.
Quiet to hisself.
To hisself always, but everybody break somewhere.
[.. ... ..]
End: I can’t never be his brother like you his brother.
You know that right.
No need to hate Legba.
I can’t stop you from being his brother.
