Africa has now joined the hightable

I never imagined that one day my motivation would be drawn from TV.

Yes, nowadays my self esteem boost is drawn from a script. Fiction. It’s ok guys you can judge me now. But can you please hear me out first.

See when I was in Kenya I took so much for granted. Like the fact that everyone thought it is normal to be smart and speak English. I come from a country where 85 percent of the population is literate. No one prepared me for what most of the rest of the world thinks of us as Africans. Yes, I heard about prejudices from friends in diaspora but to be it sounded like a made up tale.

LET AFRICA BE

Dear friends in Kenya, you don’t want to know the picture our beloved UNICEF and UNHCR has painted of us out here. Guys, I have seen some adverts and gone like: “Is that in Mars?” But no, that’s Africa!

Hey, I know we are not a paradise but the UN needs to be realistic. First by updating new photos and maybe clarifying that that’s not how the whole of Africa looks like.

I know it’s too much to ask but surely there is a better way to help someone without humiliating them further. Leave some dignity. The UN which is mostly funded by the Western World should probably remember that if the same countries had not poked holes in our waterfull bucket, we wouldn’t be leaking. You can’t just create a deliberate, entitled, tiresome, sweeping and base ignorance about Africa. No!

Guys let me clarify this, Africans are not poor because we are stupid, no!

This is because we of historical injustices like colonisation and current mismanagement by corrupt governments.

Anyway, I’m slowly accepting the fact that people think we Africans aren’t that smart. And sadly that includes black people who have never been to the motherland.

KENYANS IN SWEDEN HATE THIS

However, I’m encouraged by the fact that there are a few steps taken in by determined Africans to make sure we are eatinh at the hightable with the rest of the world.

The world is now Dancing to Nigeria’s Davido music, reading Chimamanda Ngozi’s books. Speaking of Chimamanda, did you watch the french journalist who asked if there were libraries in Nigeria? A journalist my guys, a journalist! Anyway, I loved Chimamanda’s classy comeback! So diplomatic.

I’m inspired by Lupita and the entire Wakanda team. It’s one thing to watch Black Panther but seeing it featured in Avengers: Infinity Wars? My people legitimising an African accent! Guys, it’s the small things

And this is just the beggining guys.

Africans are coming for what they said we couldn’t have!
