    Fun with African flags

    Like Doctor Sheldon Cooper, very few things surprise me… lol. Ok, I’ve been surprised every day of 2020. Who knew COVID was gonna happen. The other thing that took me by surprise, was the Japanese flag. I remember seeing it as a kid, and thinking: Is that it? Here in Africa we are not known for having the simplest flags in the world. Look at Seychelles’ national flag. It’s like a festival on cloth! More

    Fun with African flags

    What are we going to be focusing on today? Short answer: birds! More specifically national flags with birds on them. Today I’m focusing on five countries: Zambia, Kiribati, Dominica, Papua New Guinea, and Mexico! How did I not know that Mexico has a whole eagle on its flag? In my mind, I thought it only had stripes. While you digest and marvel at my poor observation skills, grab some popcorn and get ready. More

    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 More

    Easy to craft African dolls made from newspapers

    Most global governments have asked people to stay indoors more than people have ever had to, before. Allow me to say; you are not alone in this unexpected-mess of a year. I know… I know! Making dolls is not everybody’s cup of mahewu, but you might be surprised by how making things with your hands can prove therapeutic! Better yet, you could even bookmark this post and save it for a later date when your sister’s kids come over or something (now that’s a plan). No wonder those little bundles-of-joy always call you their cool aunt. More

    Unbeatably authentic, Nigerian juxtaposing

    After doing my research for this post, I was left convinced that Njideka Akunyili Crosby is a true master of authenticity! A lot of artists talk about being inspired by their lives and experiences. Saying it, however… and actually being able to tangibly prove it, are two different things. And in this blog post, Njideka Akunyili Crosby managed to both speak about her authenticity and demonstrate it… More

    Fun with African flags

    Readers of this blog know by now that this website loves all visually-African-looking things! And one of the most identifying visual things of any global community is their flag design. Warrior tribes have them, governments commission for them and even pirates could not resist the pull (if Hollywood movies are to be believed). “Fun with African flags” is a weekly article where we imagine what different flags from all over the world would look like if they were “Africanised” (Eat that! Sheldon Cooper). More

    African-made Nintendo Switch games

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy some Nintendo Switch games that are made in Africa, by African game development studios! Do African countries have game development studios? Yes, of course! The industry is still young and underfunded but it is growing! In this post, I wanted to spotlight Nintendo games that are made in Africa, and most importantly owned by Africans. More
