What comes to mind when you think of life in Africa?
Is it extreme poverty, starving children and squalor a la Save the Children?
How about political corruption, religious war and tribal conflict?
Or maybe African life evokes images of wild, exotic animals roaming free?
Whatever it is, it can’t be modern or include fabulous fashion and brunch at fancy restaurants, right?
Life in Africa is all that and more.
Ghanaian born Nicole Amarteifio decided to showcase a different portrayal of the African woman with her new web series, An African City.
The series has been pegged as Africa’s response to Sex and the City (I also thought Girlfriends) and it’s easy to see the comparison. Five African women who have returned to the continent, dishing on their lives and the pursuit of love over brunch or cocktails at their favorite spots around the city.
Take a look and let me know what you think…
Yes, I know this is NOT real life in Africa for everyone or even a large percentage. That seems to be the main objection I hear from the African women who I’ve asked for their opinion. And yes, Ghana and many other countries in Africa are facing challenges, but I’m happy to see something positive with great production get a good bit of attention internationally.
