Nick Cannon is lying when he said Africans don’t call themselves African. It’s not that we don’t we just want you to specify “African” is extremely vague

85 to Africa album has a sound akin to music I’ve heard from Rihanna and jay electronica and I’m here for it. I wonder if got the warrior tattoo because he has Polynesian heritage? Also jidenna excels at everything he puts his mind to for instance in his Bambi video his acting was on point and most hip hop artists and singers shy away from committing to a character other than one similar to themselves. Jidenna seems like a natural at acting. Beyond his videos I liked his cameo in luke cage and I hope he snatches up some more roles.

Why does Nick wear that head cover? Back home that head dress is worn by older women like, grandmothers.That’s not a turban, I feel like whoever does his wardrobe is lying to him. A real turban is a long piece of cloth, that you fold, and wrap around your head, with a little piece dangling to the side to cover your mouth and nose.

I think Jidenna plays a vital role as a bridge maker between African American and African. He is Nigerian blood and not African American but growing up around us African Americans he sees how similar we are to Africans on the continent and he sees how similar Africans are to us

Jidenna, you must pay respect to your mother and her ancestors as well. Do not let the divisive pro blacks of the black community shame you into not embracing both sides of who you are. Having a white mother or father is nothing to be ashamed about and if people have a problem with that then they are the ones with the problem. The same can be said for Barack Obama and Colin Kaepernick who actually acknowledge their white parents. Don't be like Rachael Dolezal and Kamala Harris. Pandering to one side for affirmation and becoming blacker than thou will only get you points with #fakewoke blacks.

Well you must not know him as a artist. He talks about his mother and how he wished he would have protected her when they were kidnapped. She is the strongest women he knows and gives her shout outs. Just because he didn't mention her doesn't mean he is ashamed.

@HILLCREST PROFESSIONAL SERVICES No we are not. I'm saying the name Afrika predates Latin. Afrikanus is the Latin version but it is just that a version or a word that was already here before. Next you should read about who the REAL original Roman's were and where they came from. The Etruscans were the originals and where the latin language comes from.

I totally agree and a news report also confirmed that black women are now the most educated group in the United States. Between 2009 and 2010, black women earned 68 percent of all associate degrees awarded to black students, as well as 66 percent of bachelor’s degrees, 71 percent of master’s degrees and 65 percent of all doctorates awarded to black students. Another factoid: Women have earned the majority of bachelor's degrees granted every year since 1981. That was the last year that men graduated college more than women.
