I have complained about how main stream media refers to Africa as a country. She’s complained about it too. And she is not the only one.
There are many reasons why Africa is painted as a country with very poor people (who can’t survive without donations). Whatever reasons they do it; we have the power to change our story.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie makes a very excellent point. One story has been told about Africa. But it’s time for that to change.
This is an open letter to every African. Tired of your continent being called a country? Are you tired of explaining to people, that there is no African language? Do you get sick when asked stupid questions about pet elephants? Or anything ridiculous equivalent?
