Africans was put forward with a lot of turd.
Seriously. It’s humiliating.
No, Africa is not a number of countries( it’s a continent with approximately 54 countries !), but we formerly had a presidential candidate who apparently didn’t is understood that. We’ve had an airline who assumed giraffes prowl around everywhere. And we have this never-ending project that Africa needs to be saved.
The myths are aplenty.
Collectively, the rest of the world has been going Africa wrong for so long.
It’s time to make it privilege.
Young Africans are posting on social media to show what their real lives look like.
Under the hashtag #TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou, young people are helping to debunk the ludicrous stereotypes we’ve been fed about Africa to show the place they call dwelling for what it rightfully is.
It rightfully is breathtaking. There’s art, education, dwelling life, cool sceneries, pattern, metropolis, and more.

By 2050, it’s estimated that Africa will be home to every 2 out of 5 children in the world.
That is A LOT OF KIDS. From UNICEF:
“According to the Generation 2030/ Africa Report , high fertility rates and rising numbers of women of reproduction age mean that over the next 35 times, almost two billion babies will be born in Africa ; the continent’s population will double in sizing; and its under-1 8 population will increase by two-thirds to reach almost a billion children.”
Africa is booming with potential, and it’s era we stop lumping more than one billion people from 50+ countries into one mental picture. It’s simply absolutely no truth to the rumors.
Young parties+ new ways of thoughts+ engineering= watch out, nature.
It’s already starting. Don’t blink.
