The other side of Africa that is rarely depicted in the media
Newscast Media HOUSTON, Texas—There is a sophisticated side of Africa that is
rarely portrayed by the media about Africa. Many still think that Africa is a backward
continent with zebras and lions running all over the place. However, that narrative is
far from the truth. Some Africans have never even seen a real life lion or elephant
other than the ones in zoos.
Another misconception is that the whole of Africa is always engaged in wars. If that
iwere true then how on earth are these cities, bridges, streets and industries being
constructed? There are a few pockets of strife here and there, but that is activity is
found in every part of the world.
Africa is rising. The cities and industries are continuously growing as you will see in
the video below. All the edifices shown were built by native Africans with the very
own hands, through their sweat and blood. These African cities rival some of the
greatest cities in the West and those in the Orient like Bangkok and Tokyo. Yet you
never see this aspect of Africa being broadcast to the world. One has to wonder why.
However, since truth can only be found at Newscast Media, we will show you a rare
side of Africa that will surprise many. This video of Mama Africa was edited by the
talented African sister Loreen Nyambok. Watch:
