    ... a place where people are allowed to publicly spout off any nonsense in the interest of self promotion, no matter what entire foreign cultures are ludicrously homogenized in the process?

    can you imagine Hiplife and Naija artists saying "oh yeah we all make the same kind of music. it is called Afrobeats"
    you know what? i'm going to take calling bullshit on this silly wanker to the next level and ask Appietus about usage of this stupid term in Ghana, probably the most significant and prolific producer, artist, and architect in the Hiplife scene for many years.

    the african diaspora in england is not big enough to sustain inter national rivalries in any significant way. if they want to make an impression on the local market it makes sense for them to band together. does this make sense to you?

    africans were always looked down upon in the uk by west inidans. they were figures of fun. do you understand this? can you see how this would helpto create a group identity?

    is that likely? in my brothers school the number 1 pastime was west indians vs africans gang fight. not serious. not stabbing or anything. mostly for fun. but those were the sides. it wasnt ghana vs nigeria.

    judging from the silly shit coming out of his mouth, i probably do.

    plenty of American or European friends of mine know more about Chinese culture than i do. ain't nothing strange about that. for instance i have friends who are crazy about Beijing Opera, and can talk for days about its history or stylistic variations -- something which i've no knowledge about what so ever, even though it is the place of my birth and childhood.

    but that doesn't explain this:
