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!

Hey yall, what’s good?

Well on my side, it’s change. Brutally uncomfortable, but you know what they say, it’s good for you and what not. As you may recall, I recently moved to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. It’s been an experience, and I hope to tell the tale in a future article.

Today, I’m doing something a little different. I’m...

So…I’m leaving South Africa. It took me forever, to come write these words here, and I know it’s going to take more than one go for me to express everything I have to say about leaving South Africa.

In less than a week, I will be moving to Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. My move feels special to me for two reasons:

Hey Hey Beautiful people? What’s good?

In the next 30 minutes, I’ll be pouring out my love and admiration for the Beautiful Black women that inspire us on screen to live our best lives ever! They’re the women (or maybe girls) that inspire that Black Girl Magic feeling in us.

Upon studying the question of whether seeing peop...

What’s the verdict on Black love?

Black love. I have been reflecting on black love for the past few months now. Having never dated, it’s an interesting topic to me. I’m sure you’re wondering how old I am now that I’ve said that. Well, I am a 24 year old black woman, who has never dated, and never been in love and I ask mys...
