On her clip that is on BBC News Facebook page, she explains that Africa is a continent that is made up of 54 countries with over a billion people. As much as we are many as Africans the only thing that continues to hold us back is our lack of unity. According to the young woman, she suggest that there s still hope that we can unite through Social Pan-Africanism which is possible through social media.

In as much as African states are headed by some dictators coupled with Africans holding the divides on religious identity pan-Africanism can help in liberating us from some of this alien views that continued to destroy us. The USA is a collection of 50 sovereign states plus territories who have a common federal connection, and we don’t have the same cultural identity in any one of those states.
