    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

    Amazing Virtual African concert
    shows during COVID-19

    Yes! African virtual concerts are here. Sometime last year, I was invited to my very first-ever: house jam. And I went, with zero clues what to expect, all I knew was one was encouraged to bring mbira or any other African instrument. Plus food! They had me on food, cause food loves me. Some of these virtual concerts have the same kind of “house jam” vibe. Think: relaxing intimacy and chillness, something not easy to achieve in any digital production. More

Lots of face masks… and a shortage of tissues, remember that (another sigh)… The “first world” can be funny at times. In all this chaos, we have no shortage of songs titled “True Love”. Nevertheless we got a new one today! It’s 100% African and its on fire! We all need some true love. Yes, even you! 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

This amazing African video is originally in French, but I did us all the courtesy of providing the English translation below. So that you won’t have to climb into your attics and blow some dust off those “French-for-beginners books” that you impulsively bought back in college. No, Elizabeth! That ship has sailed, just… More
