USA Africa Dialogue Series - #WitsGraduation - Keynote by Professor Molefi Kete Asante | Honorary Doctorate in Literature by Wits - YouTube

A  huge and hearty congratulations to Professor Molefi Kete Asante- the defiant  voice and leader of Afrocentricity. 

I think the beautiful thing about this award is  that  it is coming at the same time when Olufemi Taiwo has birthed another strange masquerade  through a publication called- Against Decolonisation. What is majorly available to the public now is a review of the book but it gives some very possible valid account of the book- that it is against intellectual decolonisation!

 The Igbos say "ebe onye bi ka ona awachi"-people defend where they call home. Perhaps Africa has merely become a house, not a home for some Africans for no justifiable reason!

In  a typical festive period -when masquerades perform at the village square in some parts of  Igbo area -you get a beautiful masquerade performing and an ugly masquerade with sticks pushing spectators as well. 

 Taiwo  has just been shortlisted  for nomination -as one of the 50 top leading thinkers by  the Uk based Prospect Magazine for  his work-Against Decolonisation!

But the question that waits Taiwo and those who applaud the work  is- who he is leading; and to where?
