Immediately after hearing the slogan "Ke nako: Celebrate Africa's Humanity" for the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup, I felt a sense of euphoria.
It felt like this is a new beginning for the continent. Africa has been through tough times with some people even referring to it as the "Dark Continent". I think the World Cup offers Africa an opportunity to show the world it is in fact the richest continent.
This is the time for us to promote, market ourselves and display to the world who we truly are. We should not emulate other continents but display our talent .
