Fun with African flags

It’s that time of the week again! Every Saturday (God allowing) I bring you a weekly blog article that has nothing to do with Sheldon Cooper. It’s a Visually African weekly meal I call “Fun with African flags”. Get your plates ready as I prepare to dish out ten brand new “African” flags that are (hopefully) an upgrade to the European Union’s flag. Who is ready for a new European Union flag design? I know Britain is… or not

Fun with African flags

This is yet another weekly-weekend article I like to call “I am not Sheldon Cooper”. Every Saturday, Visually African brings you this post called Fun with African flags.

Death of a Superhero

Like many of you, I woke up today to the sad news about the passing away of Chadwick Boseman. He had been fighting colon cancer since 2016 when he got diagnosed.

Today’s heading of “When life imitates art” came after watching the interview attached in the article, where Misty (a fashion model) said, “She first saw Shudu (a computer generated model) on Instagram and thought, “Wow, this is amazing!” After a while, Misty and Shudu’s creators commenced doing projects together, where Misty is the partner and “body double” of the virtual model called Shudu.

African-owned comic projects that you can access and support via Patreon

On Kugali’s website, they have a lot of free and paid-for comic books. African-made comic books! In their vast library, it won’t be long before you quickly stumble upon their multinational African Anthologies! These 200-paged Anthologies which come in two editions: Standard and Raki are a must-have. The Raki edition features comic stories for the more mature audience, whilst the Standard one aims to carter for all ages. All in all, you have four 200-paged Anthologies waiting for you. That’s two Standard volumes and two Raki ones. In my opinion, the only way…

Zimbabwe desperately needed a hero

Good news vana vevhu (a Zimbabwean phrase which means: children of the soil.. though at times it feels more like children of great toil), finally the cries of a nation with 16 official languages, have now been heard.

Everybody knows that the Avengers gang mostly concentrate their “world-saving” efforts within New York State and fictional African locations like Wakanda. This means the rest of planet earth needs its own heroes. Kids in Uzumbamarambapfungwe district also need a hero, the same goes for the people hanging around…

As a child, growing up in Africa in the 90s. I struggled to find African cartoon characters in the shows that were on TV at that time. Nowadays things are starting to change. Actually, things have been changing for a while. Back in the day, whenever a “black” cartoon character was added into a show. The character had zero depth and relevance. Not anymore…
