    The fact is the rest of the world thinks this is par for the course for us. We are “animals” and this type of behaviour or experience should be expected.

    Not sure why we africans like to complain about certain things. The western media is loudest because it has the most money and is well managed ans structured. And they are reporting about their own people. Africans want to be free yet you still want the white men to do what you should be doing for yourself. Do your lives matter only if it is reported by western media? What do we really want?

    I’M over this argument, i’m sorry most of my fellow Africans don’t care about other African countries, people are even surprised because I like music from other African countries. When we start caring about ourselves maybe others will, find the news yourselves. I just don’t check on Nigeria but other African countries, stop going on social media and complaining sometimes check facts first.

      Well said the greatest enemy facing africans is africans until ee correct that the rest of the world will always see us as animals.
