Being associated with the phrase “black excellence” makes me proud to be an African. Our continent is overflowing with beauty, talent and life. We are capable of achieving anything we want because our dreams are valid, no matter how big or impractical they seem. This impracticality is what gives us the opportunity to show that we are blessed with minds that can come up with brilliant ideas. Personalities such as Cassper Nyovest, Bonang Matheba, Basetsana Kumalo and Trevor Noah are the epitome of black excellence. Let’s take over from them and make Africa even greater!
