      Mind is a powerful thing. We have the likes of Mark zuckerberg,Bill Gates, all these white innovators, scientists, ruling the world etc because they portray a powerful representation of themselves. They’ve managed to create a way to instill self confidence. It starts from home, and media is an additional outlet. There shouldn’t be one dangote, it should be several African innovators, creating things, advancing in medical breakthroughs.
      Barack Obama didn’t need to watch a superhero movie to get to where he is but he followed in the footsteps of great examples.
      It’s just a bigger representation now for Africa/Black people as a whole. If we see ourselves more as superheroes and wakanda(I know it’s a fictional place), there will be a higher level of self confidence, self belief that Africa can be better if we do what’s right.

      Honestly to comment like this, you have to be knowledgable and sensitive to the struggle of African Americans. It means much more to them, and maybe also to South Africans than it does to a lot of other Africans. Nobody is dismissing the accomplishments of other black men. But seeing it, makes US, blacks happy each and every time.
