identity

afofo | ɑ·foʊ·foʊ | – day old palm wine, distilled. Silver date palm sap (phoenix sylvestris); after collection by a tapper, ferments immediately due to natural yeasts in the air.

Compared to sweet white palm wine, afofo is clear, harsh, and strong.

ngwese | ŋ·Gweɪ·seɪ | – an inherited moniker, by one telling it means patience. The great digital oracle claims it represents innovation, independence, determination, courage, sincerity and activity.

…both names harken back to a past life, far away.
