In 700 AD, I was Dahia-Al Kahina of North Africa, Driving away Arabs, as they tried to colonise us,
In the 16th Century I was Queen Amina of Nigeria, A warrior Queen like Shaka Zulu, I conquered nations as Queen,
In the 17th Century I was Queen Nzhinga of Angola, I waged war against slave trading Europeans,
In the 18th Century I was Mbuya Nehanda of Zimbabwe, call me Chimurenga, I fought the european imperialists.
Who I’m I in the 21st century?
Today I spend half my day on Big Brother Africa and reality T.V,
Today I disrespect myself as I dance Naked on MTV and Channel O,
Today I spend Thousands on weaves,
Today I gossip a lot, jealous of my sister,
Today I paint my face with make-up forgetting I’m Beautiful without it,
Today I watch all soaps on T.V.
As a Male,
If I could travel back to the 1700, I would tell them I don’t treat women fair, reading by herself in the Bible believing she is the reason sin is here, you played her.
If I could speak to my Grandfather, I would ask why he lies to her, telling her she can’t be the only one, the one and only.
I must burn all Cosmetics companies for her natural hair and dark skin are gorgeous!
