Africa is truly the motherland and it deserves to be respected. People from Africa are not savages but are some of the most successful people in the world today.

It is obvious to see that black American music derived from traditional African tunes. Africa seems to be the home of musical geniuses and I thank them for allowing us to create our own genre from their inspiration. In closing, Africa night was truly an amazing experience and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us next
