Did you know They Were African?:Isiah Washington /Chris Rock/Gym Class Heroes Dude.
And now,for another exciting (lol) blog post of my series ,"Did You Know They Were African?".Here we go.
At the end of 2008,former Grey's Anatomy star Isiah Washington took the DNA test that can trace african-americans roots back to Africa ,and according to the DNA,he is part Sierra-Leonian and part Angolan .According to ,the actor was granted citizenship from the Sierraleonian government after he petitioned.Well,I'm hoping to see him doing some charity work back there and building schools and all that.He could use his star power for a good cause.
Chris Rock is apparently from Cameroon ,and he used the african ancestry DNA Kit as well.According to concreteloop,he is from the Udeme people of northern cameroon.
And lastly,Gym Class Heroes guitarist Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo(what a mouthful!) is from Congo DR.I guessed that just from the name.
