I’m Méguy. Mostly referred to as Me-Guy by the English speaking folks and Maggie by every single Congolese person that is not a member of my family. But I’m Meggie, Meg-ee! I am a 26-year-old woman. An aspiring author. Passionate about writing, reading, music, singing, travel, daydreaming (I put some time aside for that whenever I can! For real) and the natural high I get after watching a great movie. Welcome to TheContinentMusings! Here I wish to share my thoughts and engage with you on all things THE continent, as I join the line of Africans eager to tell our stories on the continent and Internationally! I hope to be the writer that gets you talking, exploring and imagining through the articles that I wish to share with you!

Adulting: The Un-Instagrammable_The job Interview part 1 

If I may edit my original text, I would like to add my predominant thought in writing this series: fleeting time. For those who know, it is one of my biggest fears. Fleeting time, and perhaps scarier: the changes that come with fleeting time. Over the past year, t...

As we prepared for our second day in the city, I silently worried in front of the mirror, as my cheeks seemed to have started to hug the bones on my face. What if I never stopped losing weight, until, soon enough, I started to look sickly and eventually died? I told you, the extremes in my head… they have no bounds! Start...

New York: The un-Instagramable – Part 3

I walked out of the Uber and the cold air greeted me on my way out. My dramatic self thought; “Is this how this lonely trip is going to feel too? Cold AF?”

 But God Fam! But God!

I walked into the hotel with my suitcases (home girl is extra, and for five days, my mom had to convince me...

So, as I was saying, cute guy from across the restaurant was my airplane neighbor, and I wanted to talk to him! He looked like he would make an amazing conversational partner for the ride. Yep, this is an introvert talking to you, so take my word for it, not a lot of people are worth the effort of conversation. Then again...

  • April 2019. Perhaps, just like in Eat, Pray, Love I needed the solo trip, the time alone, to reflect and mend my broken heart. I don’t know. To be quite honest I didn’t make it past 10 minutes of that movie, shit bored me to death!

  • May 2019. After deliberating with myself on whether or not to cancel this flight,...

If I get past the motion sickness (typing and reading in a moving vehicle), I’ve gotta start writing this. It’s been on my mind, for a while now.

Hello there my beautiful people. What’s Gucci? Have you met your soulmate?

Tell me sweet something, 2015

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always thought, with almost complete ce...

Hey yall! What's Gucci my people, what's Louis my people?

I'm out here excited about posting the women's responses to "Ask a black man" in which I had  received some surprisingly decent answers (lool never experreriiit) and some trifling ones (Nod to you anonymous 32)!

The ladies had a survey of their own, and I took p...

Hey Yall! What’s Gucci? What’s Louis?

I’m out here, in these Abidjan streets, promising I’m not looking for no wahala. I just want to ask a black man! That’s all.

So, here is the back story. A couple of weeks ago, as some of you may know, I stumbled upon this:

"Why do black football players love to marry white women?"

It was...

August 29, 2018

Hey hey! What’s gucci?

So, what shall we talk about today? The continent?

When I over-optimistically think people are changing their perceptions of my continent, I’m stopped in my tracks and thankfully remember that learning is never-ending and there is always more to be said, more to be done to contribute to the elevation...
