The erosion and domination of African people was not going to come via use of force of arms or theological indoctrination; it was going to come through the backdoor with the insidious creep of ideas through global media, Hollywood and the new bogeyman called social media. Our world is now a suffocating small village where we are ruled by the headlines and the number of Likes and Shares and Trends one can muster.  We   are witnessing the death of originality, the death of authenticity and the cheapening of information and communication. We are witnessing the slow erosion of our own true African selves and what held for millennia is slowly passing away in the face of modernization, and with the least amount of resistance.
