I wish Bosco could have seen it, though.
Don't worry bout Bosco, Vita, man.

[footsteps approaching]
How was your day?
Um, good.
Still lots to prepare.
- Yours?
- Mm.
Junior took me to some place,
The Butchers.
Mum, I rapped. [laughs]
I didn't even know I could do that.
Are you all right, Mum?
What do you want me to say, Vita?
I thought you came in here to apologize.
You didn't think to ask me
about singing my own song?
I did it for you.
I wanted it to be a surprise.
You never once thought to yourself
what that song actually meant to me.
What happened back then.
Why I was there back then.
Why I'm not there now.
Come. Sit by me.
I know people always say this, but
I really was gonna be something, you know.
It was all planned out.
But just before
I got to release the song
I found out
I was pregnant with you brother.
Your dad told me
that it would be impossible.
I believed him.
As soon as the baby was born,
I thought
he was gonna get me started again.
But one day,
he took me up Lee High Road
and showed me Aria's Restaurant,
family-run West Indian takeaway.
I stepped one foot
in that place 24 years ago
and I've never left.
- Mum, I'm so
- It's fine.
It's fine, Vita.
I don't need your sympathy.
I just need you to understand
what I gave up.
I I hope it works out for you,
but, uh
chances are you'll end up in my position.
You should know what that cost.
[footsteps receding]
[door closes]
[chattering and laughter]
Yuh all right?
Why didn't you let Mum do
what she wanted back then?
[Beres] Listen, nuh badda
wid all dat now, man.
Yuh madda
Don't mek her put her failures pon yuh.
Yuh and her are different.
Like mi and my fadda.
I was neva like him.
But mi mek di mistake
of trying to be di man he was.
[tense music plays]
Don't do wah mi do.
Always be yuh.
Dat's why yuh need fi tek risks.
Strike out like wah mi do

[gentle music plays]
[Beres] Yuh all right, Auntie?

Alla dis is mine now.
