It is amazing that some people would get confused about the second largest continent in the World. The misconception in thinking Africa is a country rather than a continent is fueled by the media and those who often project Africa as a country damaged by war, famine, and corruption.

Iwani Mawocha

My guest today 22-year-old Iwani Mawocha, defied All odds and became brave enough to help people better understand Africa as a continent not a country. Africa is a blurry image in the mind of many people around the world–warring, impoverished, unfixable. But then there are the stories of young Iwani who decided against all odds to do a video blog that addressed the notion “Africa is Not a Country”. Imani talks about Africa as having 54 states on the continent, yet the media insists on referring to it as one place.

Africa has an image problem. Or, put another way, the West has a perception problem.

Be encouraged and encouraging
