How “Wakanda Forever” Put Africa on the Spotlight Again

A New Era For Africa

Black Panther would forever be remembered in the hearts of many Africans as the movie that rejuvenated the love for all things African. The continent, with its energetic and rich culture, was well represented in the Marvel movie. The premiere of the movie brought out a sense of pride and identity associated with being African.

Scores of people flocked to the cinema halls, clad in their African attire, and with full anticipation to watch what would unfold. Within days, everyone was happily doing the infamous “Wakanda Forever” move, which is basically crossing both arms across the chest with clenched fists.
