Relate Vanity By Birago Diop To Our Contemporary Lives
Looking at our contemporary living, a whole lot has changed in the face of African culture. The acceptance of strange styles and the adoption of alien religions have almost painted the hair of African culture to grey making it so close to grave.
In Yoruba land, women no longer greet with two kneels. The attached importance to virgin maidens no longer exist. In Hausa land, men no longer receive flogging before marriage. The true means of making an emir no longer exist, only the rich gets the seat. In the Igbo land, the architectural form that placed families in clans no longer exist.
Modernization, science, technology and strange acquisitions have left the lamentations of Birago Diop to a condition of vanity in this our contemporary living.
