How not to treat us Africans

No comments

In this episode I share how we don’t want to be treated as Africans.

Before I hit record on my intro episode and first episode, I had already listed 100 topics I will love to talk about either on a solo episode format or with guest. This serves as a guide and a bank of inspiration for content ideas.
