As a celebrated artist from East Africa with great notoriety and a strong social media presence, I come across people in my comment session who question my descent/background especially from 'westerners'. What sometimes looks like a compliment but a stab to my pride as an African. " You look very handsome or fine, are you a black American? " My issue with this is, must I be black American to be look handsome?? It is very stereotypical, that is why I accepted to be a part of a movement that champions such a course.
