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...

Where am I from? If you had asked me this question when I was younger I would have said France. I remember also saying I’m 50% French, 25% Congolese and 25% Beninese when I was about 6. Back then I didn’t realize how important it is to understand and embrace your cultures.

My father is from the Republic of Congo and my mot...

Hey yall, what’s Gucci? I’m over here acting bad and boogie at Starbucks in Sandton City. People always be acting either hipster or “VerySeriousIgotacreativemeeting” type of vibes. So I’m over here too, trying to create a role for myself in both categories, sipping on some Rooibos Tea Latte, because I recently found out t...

The "where are you from” question… I always take a second before giving an answer even if that comes across as slightly awkward. Because I’m not entirely sure where to start with someone I’ve just met. I’ve never wanted to bore them with all the details, but in actual fact, there are a lot of details to cover… It’s just n...

Hey hey yall! What’s good?

Greetings from Joburg!! It’s cold yall, it’s brick yoo, but I’m homeee! Hehe

So what are we talking about today? Me! Okayyy that sounded conceited. I did think however, that, when I follow blogs, I love to learn a little more about the people behind them. So, without further ado, here are 25 facts...

La question à mille dollars ! Aucune question ne me déboussole autant que celle-là. La question à ne pas poser lorsque l’on ne vit pas ou que l’on n’est pas né dans le pays dont on détient le passeport. Voyez, c’est donc toute une introspection! 

Une conversation typique se déroule habituellement ainsi:
