Living as an African has its ups and downs, just like every other situation. Knowing the dopest rappers, mastering the latest dance moves or having a voice like Beyoncè’s does not necessarily make you an African. Most people see colour, but not everyone sees racism. Part of being an African is having a new hairstyle every few weeks, meeting new relatives you never knew you had until someone throws a party, having a surname hardly anyone can pronounce, having to call everyone older than yourself „aunty“ or „uncle“ and, yes, having music in your blood. This radio post is going to help you find out firsthand what it really feels like to be an African amongst Europeans. In other words, an AFRO-EUROPEAN. By Precious and Jessica Nnebedum. Music: Young Paperboyz.
Precious and Jessica also write about their experiences as Afro-Europeans. Here’s to their blog.
