Parenting as an African in Europe

Part one of my conversation with Mrs Chinwe Ukuku, Founder and CEO of the Lagos based Incubation Center to Renewable technologies Ltd is about her experiences a young immigrant in Austria, about life, becoming a parent in Austria and parenting in a culture outside of the one you grew up in. The connection between Johannesburg and Lagos was not the best, but we insisted!

The life of a highly qualified African intellectual and father up a black child in Danemark 

My next conversation is with Dr Primus Tazanu, one of the academic leaders from my very own village, Lebang -Fontem in Cameroon, who is currently an independent consultant in Copenhagen, the capital of Danmark. In this part one, we are talking about life in general, and parenting now and then, at home and in a foreign country. 

Identity, Black Panther, Humanity, Madela centinary and the Africa we want to see

Part two of my conversation about Dr Primus Tazanu is about our African Identity, lessons from the Black Panther film, the Nelson Mandela Centenary and many other related issues. Here we go.

Beware of the other side of charity, it is not what you think it is!

And yes there was a part 3 of my conversation with Dr Primus Tazanu. In spite of network challenge between Johannesburg and Copenhagen, we had great conversation. This part is about what how important is for us own and driving our own Africa.
