CGTN, or the ‘new’ face of CCTV, just came up with a short series of clips covering African presence in Guangzhou. Interestingly, the angle taken in these clips is (obviously) not replicated in CCTV’s domestic broadcasts.
Is this the emergence of a new ‘ontological milieu’?
“Rolling with NAK is a new tv talk show hosted by China-based Sierra Leone’s Neneh Ada Yang. Ada is an artiste, fashion designer, host, painter, collector and mum. Ada also has a foundation in China, Sierra leone, US and some other countries which supports the less privileged. The talk show is produced by her and hopes to have top dignitaries and celebrities based in China and those that are on tour in the country.”
A great representation of what happens in the stories of many West Africans before they make it to Asia. Although this film is about travelling to Malaysia, the family situation is very similar before coming to China. Enjoy!
It’s very simple. Sino-African encounters go way beyond economistic narratives of trade, commerce and ‘immigration’. Blame your social sciences training and your area study mentality and then, only then, enjoy this music. ;). BTW, in case you didn’t know, Nigerian tunes are the tunes of the future. #NigerianFuturisms
