Ikenna gives his take on the saga rumbling on between President of Malawi, Joyce Banda, and the African country’s biggest private donor and all round angel, Madonna. WATCH the full WUA episode here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ChC49EywZ4
This week, a spin on the sniping between Malawi President Joyce Banda and the country’s biggest private donor, Madonna. There’s a preview of ‘Little one’, the moving new film selected as South Africa’s entry for the Oscars. And Ikenna names the best African hip-hop track of not just the last year, but the last two years.
This week: Ugandan Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo wants to ban miniskirts. But he didn’t say anything about men wearing them… We see kids with superpowers in ‘Troublemaker’, a new video by South African DJ Haezer. And Jamaican-Liberian singer Josephine Oniyama inspires Ikenna to do some crooning of his own. Viewer discretion advised.
This week Ikenna asks: why has Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir gone all soft? He also shows us ‘How to Rob Africa’, courtesy the same-named documentary by Zimbabwean journo Stanley Kwenda. And he finally comes to appreciate house music — at least as it’s performed by the South African group Mi Casa.
Ikenna questions how South Africa is “defending democracy” in the Central African Republic. He gets a glimpse into the world of Kenyan cyclist extraordinaire David Kinjah. And he premieres a ballet collaboration between cellist-singer Ayanna Witter-Johnson and… guess who.
