Thank you very much and I think it is in the proper place of us who are overseas at times to be reminded what makes us who we are. On the topic of halloween you guys are correct but the previous comment wasn't representing their faith in the proper manner. You cannot say something is satanic and act in a manner that resembles that of what you despise. I agree with you and this forum along with others will lead this project and our family in the positive direction. We here in the states have never looked at this holiday like that. It was just another excuse to get dressed up and go out but if it's something that we know isn't appealing to our true identity we'll stop. Having an open mind is the best way to communicate and next year you probably won't see another celebration or try to find a middle ground without making its negative holiday.  Thank you for the support Jabes

That is a very nice and brilliant idea, its good now as African we have learnt and realize that we can do it, make a difference especially us who are from East Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda etc... if you can make it happen there I guess you will even expand to other states, some of us have forgotten about Africa dishes, I am much positive you will gain popularity keep that dream alive. On the issue of celebrating Halloween, damn it depends on what type of a person you are, I am sure as African with african culture we should not have to celebrate it, unless if one has his or her reasons, otherwise there is no reason it is satanism, celebrating the dead one that is bull s*** . why should we engage ourselves in such activities? now days holloween is business, I really hate it... In some states they even give price to the best halloween costume man of the day,that what happened lately here in Toronto.
I bet you you can only do that when you are not a believer. Why should we embrace ourselves with such a thing? However I am happy that you have came up with that project...make it happen....wishing you all the best.

Many of my dates to impress women have been at Ethiopian restaurants in Harlem. Currently you are speaking to Johnson the older son of the family. I think that is a very good idea of collecting recipes. I remember being in Vegas and having to go to a buffet that had tastes of Asia. I think we can develop the same type of concepts. The idea of making this reality show wouldnt just be about gaining popularity but about creating a global brand. Being known for making us Africans main stream. For example the idea of having multiple restaurants, maybe fashion, creating charitable foundations that actually work. Too many times we have people who come to help in Africa but never teach us how to fish. Once you have a name, raising money and capital required for such endeavors wouldn't really become an issue.

 Dear "Growing Up African" members. I like your brilliant ideas about African dishes. Try this: come up with an African dishes catalogue and start a restaurant. Collect recipes from across Tanzania, Kenya, or Uganda, etc. I know this project requires cash to take off. However, let's come up with the idea, in the first place. Ethiopians beat us on running such a project. I am sure you have gone to eat in an Ethiopian restaurant. Tell me what you think.

As a family we just end up influencing others in teaching or passing on the positive qualities of Africa. From simple things like cooking, the food cooked in the continent is so diverse so it presents a learning curve for other cultures. Imagine chefs from Europe & Asia traveling to Kenya to learn how to prepare some meals or just visiting a country for their cuisine. We have so much to offer but before anyone accepts or listens to what we have, we have to show that we embrace them too. Women in Africa can share so much especially to other women of their race in different parts of the world on how to handle pregnancy. What to wear, what to eat, how to take care of their skin. It's so much there to show but it takes one step at a time.

We cannot address such a negative comments. One thing that should be known is doing good and committing positive acts of humanity never arose from a negative perspective. There's plenty of negative energy in other places but the family is merely trying to create a positive depiction for Africans. This holiday isn't about anything negative and if you watch the video you will be informed.

Thanks a lot for your candid response. Yes, we now live in a globalised world and none can avoid the cultural impact of others. You also said that in the coming years, there is hope that something African can be developed to impact the Non-African communities. What an excellent idea!! Do not wait for too long a time to start out. I, for one, cannot wait!! It is about time for others to embrace the positive elements of our own cultures. What would be the head-start, for example? Is it about the revival of our traditional dances, story telling, proverbs, formation of family bonds, raising children, sharing of our common ancestry, social cohesion based on marriage, blood relationship, age-group, or sharing of our common ideas and ideals? Can't wait to see it getting started.
