Africa, the land of my fathers, the land of my birth. A large continent with various countries, different cultures. A great land with diverse people, all brilliant and beautiful; a people homogeneous in more ways than not. Oh! For how long would we remain vulnerable and used! For how long would our leaders remain greedy and nonchalant about the plight and pleas of its people! Africa has birthed quite a number of highly renowned people who have made history and peacocked Africa. Let us, one and all, together make our continent great,as the world see us rise and shine!
