'This book should be on the curriculum.' Nikki May; author of WAHALA Africa Is Not A Country is a bright portrait of modern Africa that pushes back against harmful stereotypes to tell a more comprehensive story. You already know these stereotypes. So often Africa is depicted simplistically as an arid red landscape of famines and safaris; uniquely plagued by poverty and strife. In this funny and insightful book; Dipo Faloyin offers a much-needed corrective. He examines each country's colonial heritage; and explores a wide range of subjects; from chronicling urban life in Lagos and the lively West African rivalry over who makes the best Jollof rice; to the story of democracy in seven dictatorships and the dangers of stereotypes in popular culture. By turns intimate and political; Africa Is Not A Country brings the story of the continent towards reality; celebrating the energy and fabric of its different cultures and communities in a way that has never been done before.
