I found this video on ariztos magazine ,which is african ,and in the video,Nas was asked why US artists don't perform that much in africa and you can see what him and Pharell have to say.
I think that some of his comments are well-taken,but am not sure about the comment on how africans have our own racial words for african-americans.While the people I know do not represent the whole of africa,I must say that I have never heard an african refer to a black-american in a racially degrading way.
He also says that we africans and them have communication issues ,which is true,but I think that's because we (or maybe just me) thinks that they don't make an effort to get acquainted with african culture.
He is correct in saying that americans are being lied to about africa ,but it is up to them to find out what's really going on in africa.everyone knows not to just believe the media.
Anyway,I will leave the commenting up to you.What do u think?
Nas and Pharrel get real on Africa.
