Knock, Knock Africa…Who’s there? It’s the Obamas! Barack, Michelle, Sasha & Malia to visit Senegal, Johannesburg & Tanzania



The Obamas

Guess who’s coming to Africa? It’s the Obamas!

America’s royalty – The President of the United States of America Barack Obama and the First lady of the United States of America Michelle Obama as well as the first daughters Sasha and Malia, are heading to the world’s most cultural continent on Wednesday.

Accompanying President Barack Obama on his official tour through Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania, the first lady and their daughters will meet with middle school students in Senegal, taking questions from teens in Johannesburg and attending a summit in Tanzania, according to People Magazine.

In Tanzania, she is also expected to take part in a cultural performance by the Baba wa Watoto youth troupe.

Although they are not visiting Nigeria, we can’t wait to a glimpse of Barack, Michelle, Sasha and Malia all together in Africa.

    Let’s pray for the peace of Nigeria. The on-going boko haram war in the north is strong enough to scare a right-thinking foreigner away talk less of American first family – a country that’s ‘passionately’ hated by the extreme Islamist. David Cameron was in Nigeria but couldn’t step Aso rock; Lagos was his final port of call. Didn’t that send a message?

    who cares? it seems you do though. How will his visit be of benefit to the poor in Nigeria, or even the countries the family is visiting? what of the whole of Africa? Africa has not benefited from his administration in anyway but rather he treats the continent as the scum of the earth. Is he(Obama) wrong to treat Africa that way? no he is not. Africa needs to shape up because the continent represents the black race, and as long as we glorify corruption, then we will continue to be relegated in the world order as a continent.

      @Lola ur comment seem somewhat confused, first u said Obama’s visit would not do anything for the poor if he were to visit Nigeria, then he snubs Africa and treats us like scum and then you said Africa should clean up it’s act and stop glorifying corruption if we want to be relevant to the world as a Continent.First of all, Obama would not visit Nigeria cos the country is heavily embedded in corruption and election malpractices.He said that after his first election, that he will support any African country that conducts free, fair and credible elections and fight corruption. Hence he visited Ghana and snubbed Nigeria and Kenya. I don’t see how he treats Africa like scum of the earth like you claim. Do ur research on Obama’s foreign Policies and financial Aids to Africa especially in areas of fighting terrorism and poverty in the Continent. Like you said when we clean up our act especially in Nigeria he will visit.

    Obama will never come to Nigeria now or in future
    Bill Clinton has being the only American President that ever liked Nigeria/ns
    He’s put up an attitude of throwing the bad baby away wt the bathe water, forgetting that his coming around and sensitizing our morons of leaders can make a slight change if not huge, even though, i know our leaders hearts r made of stones
    i wish him safe trip with his family

      The American government is a fair weather friend. Don’t be fooled by their foreign aid and foreign policy. They give with one hand and take with the other. Also don’t be fooled because Bill Clinton visited Nigeria. I know he has been here more than once but the only reason he came during the OBJ administration was because Nigeria was just returning to democracy and America had to be seen as encouraging a new democracy.
      Fast forward a couple of years Nigeria is in turmoil well almost, with insecurity and corruption everywhere, now the US doesn’t want to be associated with us.
      Bottom line is I don’t see what we stand to gain by his visit except that our current clueless government would use it as propaganda to say Nigeria can’t be that unsafe, after all the Obama’s were here.

    the continent of AFRICA is a JOKE! we have africans in other countries are practically slaves. most of them do the lowest jobs if not prostitution. Africans are highly discriminated against and are the lowest common denominator of all people and races. WHY is that so? its because our leaders pack all the money for themselves and families and yet when we see their kids in public we treat them with respect.
