Celebrities Celebrate #AfricaDay


Africa Day was first commemorated in 1963 when 32 countries formed the Organisation of Africa Unity. To celebrate the continental holiday, media personalities took to social media to share what it means to be proudly African.

Take a look at their posts below:

So some of you may or may not have seen the headlines of me apparently "losing my cool", as they put it, over someone on my Twitter page who I found to be disrespectful of my home language. To cut a long story short, I tweeted a greeting nga TshiVenda and a man of another culture (black, South African) found it fitting to say "nawe" as a response to my tweet. When another person corrected them/informed them that it's a greeting he then responded by saying "rhaa, uyasithuka". Black child, how long will you hate yourself and those that look like you but may not speak like you? Heh? How long? You don't have to like my culture, you don't have to like or understand my language, but do me a favour toe, RESPECT IT. On this here #AfricaDay let it be known that a thi nga neti u di hudza nga u vha muVenda. Never. Ndo livhuwa. Aa. ? A post shared by Hulisani Ravele (@hulisaniravele) on
