What to know about the continent
Although the continent is part of the world, the real history of Africa is not known by many as it has been portrayed by the western media as a continent with few amenities, hungry children and a war zone.
To tell you the truth, most people were not aware that Africa is a continent with several countries nested within it which is very appalling. Africa is a huge continent with 54 countries.
Out of these 54 countries, only 2 countries were not colonized when the scramble for Africa started. Algeria is the largest country in Africa and Nigeria being the largest country by area. The smallest country in Africa is Seychelles with a population of about 98,000. The continent is rich in minerals, farm produce and intelligent minds.
No wonder human civilization is thought to have started in Africa, Egypt to be precise.
The rich culture of Africans has been thought of by many to be acts of heathens that is totally not their fault considering the drab and dry culture they have.
But over the years, Africans have risen up to make their voices heard by telling ignorant people that what they hear about Africa is not entirely true.
