I am sharing this blog as a short response to Kányinsọ́lá Ọbáyàn’s piece on What really is an Afropolitan? Movement or Fad. It’s a thoughtfully written and provocative piece and I cold not have run into it at a more perfect time. I have been contemplating sharing something like this for while, but hadn’t found the perfect angle, and thanks to this article, I was able to put some thoughts together. You can find my other thoughts on Afropolitanism under Africa O!
