Let me start by introducing myself, my name is Nadine Corine a.k.a NaCo and I am a German woman who has a lot of love for the great continent of Africa.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to mingle with different Africans from different parts of Africa with different cultures, traditions, religions, and characters here in Germany.
These different experiences and encounters have immensely affected my life as well as my way of thinking, both positively and negatively.
So I pose this question: Why do Africans destroy the hard work of their own brothers and sisters? Why can’t they appreciate rather than depreciate each other’s sweat and labour? In today’s slang, why do Africans hate on each other?
Nowadays the term “hater” or "hate on" refers to someone who is jealous of an individual or jealous of another person’s work, achievement, success, business, relationship, money, and the list goes on.
Whenever an African in Germany decides to make a difference within the Community by either establishing an event or business, the other Africans don’t support it or try to destroy it.
I have personally witnessed this trend of non brotherliness amongst the community I so very much love. Why can’t they all just get along and support each other? Why do they fight one another? Backbite each other? Gossip about nonsense. But most especially, why do they deliberately destroy each other’s hard work.
A lot of African brothers have opened clubs, restaurants, and even held events, shows, and concerts only for it to be destroyed or not supported by other African brothers.
The African Brother believes that he knows how to organize or establish better than the guy who is currently doing it. So rather than supporting or helping the current guy who has already established the activity, he would rather prefer to start something else from the ground up.
I have seen this trend fail too many times and I urge my African friends to help one another. Don’t discriminate against each other, just work with each other. You all have one thing in common; you are Africans and are all from one ancestor. You are just like a big family with one mum and one dad.
Don’t destroy each other, help each other. There is power in numbers. When you all come together and stand together, you can move mountains.
God didn’t create you to fight each other; he created you to help each other.
So I urge all African brothers to unite and work together.
