AFRICAN MUSIC AND AMERICAN MUSIC RESPECT TOWARDS WOMAN

images

I always wondered why in America, will a woman in her right senses smile and take it as a compliment when his man or boyfriend whichever it is, calls her a bitch or a whore. I have seen this happen quiet a lot.

I also wondered why these woman will go around even boosting about being his bitch, not his bitch in fact his bad bitch, how she is a bad bitch and what not.

I also wondered why African females call themselves black queen, beautiful woman, all this beautiful names a woman will call her self in respect of her status in the community. Why an African woman will slap the hell out of a man who will call her a bitch, African woman i mean those who are educated but still not corrupted by the western lives or the so called “3rd world countries”. There is no how the word bitch can be used in a good way. Because they will say “don’t take this wrong you are a bad bitch in a good way”.

Oh really like wtf do u mean.

Well now i see this trend in Africa, you know Africans we like copying whatever Americans are doing, i think we think that is civilization. Our music is so changed. We call ourselves the N word, do u even know what it means.

It is not civilization to be calling women whores, bitches or cursing to make a song. This is the reason why i don’t listen to rap music.

Enjoy your Friday, i am about to go listen to rap music and sip some hot tea.

NOW I WONDER…MMHHHH

After I took these photos, I then sat my beautiful lovely behind down and I looked at these photos very closely and I said to my self.

1.why did I stop wearing my natural crown?
2. What inspired me to start wearing wigs and all this fake hair?
3. What was the main reasons that I choose that I look better in wigs than my own natural hair?
4. ALL THESE WIGS ARE FREAKING EXPENSIVE…

Well I never even got to answer this questions my self, they seem so hard to answer. I remember the first time I had a wig sewed in my head by a zimbabwean woman in maun by shoprite,she took me behind the shops we found a tree, where we found other zimbabwean women plaiting other women, it was painful sewing it in, and because it was my first time i was so anxious and curious. The more she tried to make the wig to look natural the more it hurt. Anyway they say no gain without pain.It took almost 3 to 4 hours, it was so uncomfortable to sleep on the first day and the care taking of these hairs extensions or wigs is just too much. I remember I had to wrap my hesd when going to sleep, comb it in a certain way to make me look good, and the most annoying thing is the scalp itching part and you can’t really reach it because there is no space to reach as it is a sewn in.

Now back to the photo, I am really loving my natural look and I think, I am going to be wearing this uniquely God given crown for a while because I totally look amazingly beautiful,  what do you, anyway it doesn’t matter because I know how I look BEAUTIFUL AFRICAN MOTSWANA WOMAN.

I love wigs and extensions, maybe I will one day get to it again, but not soon. I am not discouraging anyone from any hairstyles you want but again I always here women saying, they don’t look good with their natural hair, but again if you don’t give your natural crown a chance, how will you know. I used to be like all this women untill I lived according to me but to not to what people will think or judge of me.

NEW COINS, NEW COINS, NEW COINS

BANK OF BOTSWANA: NEW FAMILY OF COIN TO BE INTRODUCED

NOT ONLY AM I HAPPY ITS A NEW FAMILY OF COINS, I AM HAPPY ITS MONEY, I LOVE MONEY BUT WAIT, WHO DOESN’T? YEAH RIGHT LOL YOU DO TOO.

The public is informed that the Bank will introduce a new family of coin in the first quarter of 2014. The introduction of the new coin follows a comprehensive review of the national currency, in this case Botswana coin. This is in line with international norms where currency is reviewed and updated periodically to take account of latest technology trends and security features. Indeed, in designing and minting the new family of coin, the Bank accessed the latest technology in the industry with a view to producing good quality coin.

The new family of coin has retained the seven denominations; viz; 5 Pula, 2 Pula, 1 Pula, 50 thebe, 25 thebe, 10 thebe and 5 thebe. The detailed shapes and features of the coin will be published shortly in posters and related media.

The current coin will be exchanged for new coin and/or bank notes at commercial banks over a period of six (6) months following the launch of new coin. What will then be old coin will be demonetised and exchangeable for equivalent value only at
the Bank of Botswana in Gaborone and Francistown for a period of five (5) years.

Members of the public are requested to familiarise themselves with the features of the new coin, once they are in circulation.

And now maybe our currency will be known world wide. I really can’t wait to see the new set of coins, you go Botswana government. 😉 😉

1st DECEMBER WORLD AIDS DAY

IMAGE COURTESY OF

THE 2013 THEME FOR WORLD AIDS DAY IS “SHARED RESPONSIBILITY; STRENGTHENING RESULTS FOR  AN AIDS~FREE GENERATION “

Approximately one in six Batswana has HIV, giving Botswana the second highest infection rate in the WORLD,( you can imagine I have met some ignorant people who asked me if I have HIV/AIDS because of my country being the second highest in the world) after nearby Swaziland.The government recognizes that AIDS will affect the economy and is trying to combat the epidemic, including free anti-retroviral (ARV) drug treatment and a nation-wide Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission program.

Botswana has reduced HIV transmission from infected mothers to their children from about 40% to just 4%. To come from a highly infected and affected country in Africa I understand how stressful and hurting it is to have HIV/AIDS. This disease is not really a bad disease if you live a healthy lifestyle after finding out that you are infected, also the family support is so vital.

It doesn’t mean that you have to be infected to care about others who are infected because if you are not infected you are affected.

HERE ARE SOME FACTS ABOUT HIV/AIDS

★ HIV stands for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a virus which attacks the body’s immune system ~the body’s defence against diseases.

★ HIV can be passed on through infected bodily fluids, most commonly via sex without a condom or by sharing infected needles, syringes or other injecting drug equipment.

★ There are now more people than ever living with HIV in the in the world— with a quarter of those people are unaware they have the virus.

★ You can now get tested for HIV using a saliva sample in some already developed countries not in developing countries.

★ HIV is not passed on through spitting, biting or sharing utensils

★ You can get the results of an HIV test in just 15-20 minutes

★ There is no vaccine and no cure for HIV

In my Botswana the HIV/AIDS testing centres, hospitals and clinics offer free testing and if you are affected you get enrolled for ARV treatment.

PLEASE GO GET TESTED 😉 MANY HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GET TESTED IN TIME.

A very beautiful spirit lady I have ever met. I and this lovely lady we are from the same village, we went to primary school together and at one point I think we were in the same class and we once walked together from school to home.Of course we didn’t live in the same house but it was the same dusty road that we used to go to our houses. We parted ways I guess when we both went to middle school and high school.

image

Then one of the days I was on Facebook idling and looking at one of my mutual friends to see if I know anyone from school or from my past, that they already connected with then I found her thru a mutual friend. And she didn’t remember me but I reminded her and slowly but surely she remembered me because I used to have a big afro and I was always quiet in school. Thats how she got to remember me. LOL BIG AFRO

image

And since then, there has never been a dull moment with her, she is always happy and always positive and inspirational. I connect deeply with her because she knows what I went thru and what she went thru in her life, the struggles and hardships of growing up that made her a strong woman she is today.I can tell her anything without her judging me or telling others what I tell her. She’ll give me her suggestions but doesn’t get mad if I choose my own. When I’m down she’s there to pick me up. When I’m up she’s there to join me in my happiness. She likes me for the person I am and accepts I’m not perfect just as I accept her for being her. I am happy to call her my friend and say happy birthday to her and may God bless her with many more.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: CULTURE 20/11/2013

image

“It should now be our intention to try to retrieve what we can of our past. We should write our own history books to prove that we did have a past, and that it was a past that was just as worth writing and learning about as any other. We must do this for the simple reason that a nation without a past is a lost nation, and a people without a past is a people without a soul.” Sir Seretse Khama

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Marcus Garvey

“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” Mahatma Gandhi

HAITIAN CLUTCH AND SHOES

I love clutches so bad that I even started my own business which makes women and men accessories. Which includes making shoes, earrings, bangles and of course clutches that why this page is all about me and my love for clutches and shoes.

But today we featuring the clutch here. I am not Haitian but when I was asked to make this set, I was so excited because it was a different thing from what I am used to making like my business name says it all Ruralafrican, I make clutches, earrings and shoes using unique colourful fabrics found in Africa.
