Africa Day is celebrated every year on 25 May to commemorate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (African Union). Africa Day is proposed to celebrate and recognize the triumphs of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) from its creation on May 25, 1963, in the battle against colonialism and apartheid, the day allows us an opportunity to ponder the advancement that Africa has made, while also coming together to discover answers for the challenges that we face on the continent.

🌍Africans take pride into who they are and what they are.

🌍African don’t shy away from their roots and they wear their crowns with pride.

🌍They are unafraid of expressing their identity and teaching the universe who they are.  

Which brings us to the question, what does being an African means to you?

What makes me a proud African is the fact that we can celebrate our diversity; how we can sit with people from different cultures and not being judged for it as before (Apartheid).

A whole ray of issues is facing Africa but not letting it consume our soul. We feel for the other countries, those suffering, those that lack basic resources such as water and electricity, nations coming together to help other lands in need.” – Mitchum George, News Reader/Editor

Being African is not about colour, it is not about your state of mind but it means to be an individual, yet one that structures part of a whole. It means to commend our diversity in a way that elevates understanding and to focus on the challenges facing our continent. This while still focusing on the battle of my own country. Being African is to be complex.” – Chwayita Hlangwana, News Reader

Being African to me means being one with the nature, being one with who you are as a human being and also to not ever forget the history of we as human beings come from, especially in Africa that a lot of wrong things are happening. Being an African to me means understanding the value, respect especially in culture whilst respecting who you are as a person.” – Mkhuseli Veto, Presenter/Producer
