You know you are African if?

Okay people I know I have been away for a bit but I have an explanation, it had something to do with my new year’s resolution (long story). Anyway, I got this email from a friend and I ended up making my own modifications to it. I know that the title says “you are African…”, but if Nigerian, Ghananese (oops Ghanaian), Ethiopian etc. suits you, you can write something fun that relates to you. So here we go…
