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!

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:

« Salut, je suis Læt...

Hi yall, what’s good? I’m over here curing a stomach bug and wandering if this article will make sense when it’s all said and done. But here goes nothing.

House of Slaves

In January last year, I went on the best mission ever, since working at my current job. It took place in Dakar, Senegal. I was so worried about this trip....

The question “where are you from” is so simple, yet complex for someone like me. My immediate response when I get asked that is to say, “I'm originally from Senegal, but I've lived all around the world, and right now, I live in New York”. People sometimes look confused when I give them that particular response because you...

It was a summer in Barcelona. A dream come true. Ever since my teenage self had stood in front of the television, singing along to the Cheetah Girls’ Strut, Barcelona had made it to the top priority on the bucket list.

Barcelona is a beautiful city, and as imagined, my trip was an exciting one, full of discovery. From Las...

“So Genevieve where exactly are you from ?”

You’ve all seen those memes on social media that go along the lines of “if I had $1 for every time *insert instance*, I’d be living on a yacht, living my best life."

Well I really do feel like it’s THE most relatable meme for me personally. I get asked that question so many times,...

Hey yall! What’s Gucci?

I am preparing to write my article on anxiety, while, unintentionally yet ironically humming and singing “Don’t you worry ‘bout a thing” (Tori Kelly adaptation). Hehe, don’t you worry ‘bout a thing. Lol. How? How in the hell is that even possible?

Living with anxiety (encompassing my often-unbearable...
