Let me start by giving a Full Disclosure: I am not a psychic or an Expert Analyst, but I believe in my own people.

The Future of Africa is the Present.

I want to start by Thanking Baba God for the magical Africa I am proud to always claim. The little girl in me has engraved it in her heart and mind, thanks to my parents.

Growing up abroad being called "African Booty scratcher", I had to be reminded constantly the African Giant that lives in me.

While I am at it, Alexa play Collateral Damage by Burna Boy (African Giant Album)

.....I digress. Let us continue to build the future of Africa.

Let's buy and support our local Africans!

Issa Rae mood 24/7: "I'm Rooting for Everyone black".

This is a boost for our Local Economy and the fight to decrease Unemployment. No dependency and freedom to show the many facets of Africa in its essence. We control the narrative and ensure no appropriation along the way (If you know what I mean).

I can state so many creatives and entrepreneurs of our generation as examples.
