A funky collective of Multi-Media Artists. We adapted Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s words: "Art and Literature are the weapons". Our focus is solely to HELP OTHERS irrespective of their reputation, status or life’s struggle through our society, culture, social media and the written word. Everyone has a story to tell.
Wow! I miss Jack Bauer or Kiefer Sutherland but anyway, I really love AfroPop Nation!
You’ll see what I did there if you keep reading, smiley face.
I am an AfroPop fan and if you scroll to an earlier post called Diaspora Drums, you’ll notice we too at the TribeofGuruvé ™️ have grown with AfroPop Nation.
Special shoutout to #MoreheadTavern for all the #memories they have provided in the heart of CHARLOTTE, NC or should we call it Jordan’s city?
You know what, so much growth and maturity has come from the folks and team at AfroPop Nation and I’m here to report it.
Firstly, we must all be #grateful for the #FANS and #Followers because without you, we are nothing. It’s means a lot to each and everyone of us associated with AfroPop. You too, have seen us mature as good vibe tribespeople.
Secondly, we must be thankful for the healthy, relationships that have been planted, watered, fostered, raised, built, and strengthened in the last 24 hours, 24 volumes and ironically 24 months.
It’s the truth.
When we initiated our #SOCIAL #CULTURAL exchange with the Igbo Rebel famously known as Kato & his Co-operative #TRIBE, it was exciting, exhilarating and refreshing beyond #ReasonableDoubt like JAY-Z once said in his first album many moons and many years ago.
If you read “Diaspora Drums” you too will understand the impact this event has had on our #writing and #social #entrpreneurial hopes and dreams over the last 24 months and what can only be described as a not-so-easy, thorn-infested journey like playing snakes and ladders.
The most important thing to know is that we never stopped moving, we never paused because if you look at anything kinetic – oh like a watch, it never stops and neither does a pendulum swing. Shoutout to the ‘Merica for teaching us this on July 4th.
We appreciate all the images, pictures, articles, interviews, artists, writers, podcasts and creators that have arisen because of AFROPOP NATION. We’re just glad to provide some much needed juice, sauce and power in return.
We thank the ALMIGHTY, the ANCESTORS and the PROTECTORS for keeping us safe and for allowing this event to blossom in the capacity that MOREHEAD TAVERN & STAFF have facilitated #24 times.
Oh and now for some spiritual mathematics.
The irony is that there are 24 hours in a day and a new season is certainly upon us. Oh? If we do the mathematics, 2 is now becoming a 4 and the day that was made was 8.18.18. You’d have to read Deuteronomy 8 v18 to understand how divine this day was for our Tribe.
Perhaps like SPIKE LEE once hinted, “If you do the right thing”, then you’ll understand where the fountain is.
I am thrilled to say AfroPop Nation is #ARGUABLY #NorthCarolina and the SEC’s most authentic and electric AFRO-infused Social and Cultural event on the calendar. The coolest thing is that all we do is help each other like brothers and sisters should. We also think Clemson should be in the SEC because the chickens 🐓 always come to roost. You can’t roam with the Tigers who always ride with the Panthers. Get it smiley face? In all seriousness, can college football come already so I can take my Banter crown.
At this juncture, it appears there’s #more to come and optimistically the best is yet come. Remember, for any ending, there’s a new beginning so trust your process like the NBA African Media and Entertianment personality, Joel Embiid who always bellows out. The lady who runs @RunTowardYourLife uttered it too and it was reverberated in our memory for weeks.
#The best is certainly yet to come, so #JOIN #THETRIBE as we #Elevate our #Ordained purpose.
It’s a new Moon.
It’s a new day.
Perhaps, as the Jesuits once taught, from faith comes confidence and Banterians are where it’s at.
We also wanted to say Rest In Peace to Aretha Franklin and Kofi Annan. We are honored to carry their legacy for humanity forward. Winnie Mandela who you saw above was missing in action, but we know she was there in spirit.
It’s me, now you see us and all our tribe wants to do is help others.
Our leader is an African Jesuit who is a Sigma. He’d like to lead from the front. 🙅🏿♂️.
