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!

First I would like to say that I am really grateful to be featured on an article that touches a subject so close to my heart, because the infamous “Where are you from?” question has never been a simple one for me to answer. There are times when I’ll even dread this question because I seriously never know where to begin.

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...

If you’re not a Third Culture Kid but you identify with just tiny bits and bobs of other cultures in addition to yours RAISE YOUR HAND ! I am Oulimata and I was born and raised in Senegal. My story is slightly different from that of other TCKs, because I only claim one culture on my tax returns.

It all started fifteen year...

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...

I identify as a Nigerian-Barbadian, as I was born in Nigeria but have lived most of my life in Barbados and I am a citizen of both. Both countries are amazing in their own right! I like to believe that the dynamism and diversity of Nigeria coupled with the measured and organised nature of Barbados makes for a great combin...

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...

It’s an early Tuesday morning in late September, it’s my 20th birthday and I am late to class. As I go up the grand stairs of the Strand Building at King’s College London, my phone rings and “Mom” with a heart emoji reads across the screen:

“- Botama malamu, happy birthday, joyeux anniversaire my daughter!

- Merci maman

- Bé...

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...

A quintessential scene that immediately springs to mind when talking about the daily realities of a third-culture kid like me is without a doubt that 5-10 minute Uber ride around the city. As it starts, you’re about to get into your ride and as you settle in, you wonder if your driver is either a chatterbox or rather hush...

Hey there loves! What’s gucci?! I’m back with my article of the month and I thought I would share what I learned from listening to Meg Jay’s book, “The defining decade – Why your twenties matter and how to make the most of them”. I guess this is a post for my twenty something readers, but also anyone recently having enter...
