When a Japanese travels the world he sees Toyota cars everywhere. He is proud of his country.
When a American travels the world, the Boeing planes he witnesses at all airport make him feel good to be American.
Samsung products and Hyundai cars make Koreans proud of their nation.
When a Norwegian or Finn visits the Baltics and see that the banks, the outlets are from their country, they almost feel like at home.
German cars are all over the world, and Germans are very loud tourists because they know where they stand in European economy.
When it comes to Chinese, there is not a single human being on earth who has never owned or used a Chinese produced good. That makes Chinese proud.
When it comes to Africa, a Cameroonian would go to Berlin and listen to Manu Dibango tracks.
A Beninese would go to New York and Angelic Kidjo sounds would be on the air.
A Nigerian would visit London metropolitan museum and witness the great art of the Edo people.
The Mali people would go to Paris museum, and Mali history would be on display.
A Congolese when they visit Paris you listen to Rhumba. There is almost no single human being who has never moved on African beat.
Culture is what Africa exports the best. The world love Africa art. Tourists flock to Africa to witness our cultural festivals.
Unfortunately, the only uniqueness we are used to export is disappearing. Instead of developing what we export the best, we are sabotaging it, we are destroying it.
Christians have burned most of our artefacts, shrines and covered the continent with churches. Islamists have destroyed hundreds of cultures and covered the places with mosques. African petty bourgeoisie have ostracized our culture and only swear by western codes.
No one comes to Africa to visit a church or a mosque. For that you have Italy, France, Germany and Saudi Arabia. No one visit Africa to enjoy a little Europe or America, ugly copy of the originals.
You won’t travel abroad and hear African Christian music. You won’t see any African Christian art nor Islamic artefacts. People love African authentic music, African ways of life. Africaness.
The time we’d finish destroying our culture and replace it with alien ones, we would have nothing to bring the world. We would exclude ourselves from history.
If you are African Christian, you are part of the African destruction program. If you are an African Muslim you are part of African destruction program. If you are a westernizer, you are part of African destruction program. You are contributing to our extermination.
Uncomfortable truth is better than comfortable lies.
Learn or Perish!..🥷🏿
Honour Your Ancestors..
The hatred of one’s ancestors, is the hatred of oneself.
Today, you are casting your ancestors in very bad light. You honour the ancestors of foreigners and consider yours as evil.
Know that one day, you too will become an ancestor.
Those who will come after you, in your lineage, even though they will inherit the assets you would leave behind, will ungratefully speak evil of you (as you are speaking of your ancestors).
On the very land you would leave for them, they would praise the ancestors of the Jew and quarrel with anyone who say they should be grateful to you.
In the very house you built and left for your offsprings which they will inherit, they will hang on the walls of that building, portraits of a mythical Jew and none of yours.
You will be effaced from their memory because you thought your children, which became their father, and grand-father, how to hate their ancestors – which you will be then. You will be lost forever from the memory of those who would be enjoying what you left behind.
Wake up Africans..
Learn or Perish!..🥷🏿
The choice to awaken, is our own agency – heal, change or transform, decolonise own minds, change own mindsets and grow or NOT are wired into out brains and programmed into their minds.
As human beings, we are endowed with two broad emotions for individual and/or collective survival, our brains are wired for choice between fear and love.
Are we ready to unlearn the miseducation we received and embrace proper education? To Awaken from our long Colonial Slumber and seize the occasion to be who we were meant to be?..
Liberty to all in Africa!🥷🏿
