TV: I learnt that at the capital Freetown, at the guest house you lodged, there is a tree nearby, and every morning a bird came to sing, and out of the song of the bird, you composed a song from it.
Joseph: Yes' yes!! It is true.
TV:On July 4th 2004, I interviewed Lucky Dube, he told me that as a friend, you are one of the best men in the music industry. How do you react to this nice compliment?
Joseph: I take is easy. That's all.
TV: I ask the same question any reggae artist I interview. Reggae music is loved by everyone. But why is it that the music is given less attention?
Joseph: Because the truth is God's friend. But not a lot of people are friend of the truth.
TV: You are following the Palestinians and Israeli conflict for a very long time, and have even even visited the Gaza strip. Who do you think is the stumbling block to this peace everyone is seeking?
Joseph; Greed, greed, greed. Because there is enough to satisfy every man's need but never enough to satisfy no man's greed. So greed is the stumbling block.
TV: In one of your music, you played a song against Yasser Arafat, as the stumbling block.
Joseph: He made himself like that. He has to change his ways and the other man would change his ways. There is something called "Repentance". When repentance meets their hearts, we shall have a beautiful world.
TV: You successfully came out last year with the remarkable "world peace" album. What message do you still have in mind for your numerous fans worldwide?
Joseph: You know people should respect one another. To be used, abused, refused and our hearts trampled by fear, and living in doubt, thinking we are living on top of the world. No we shouldn't live that way. We have to seek happiness, love, mutual respect, joy and justice of God around us, and peace would find its rightful place.
TV: Thank you very much for this interview Sir Joseph Hill.
Joseph: Thanks be to Jah
