Why are they all from West Africa ?
This was an absolutely beautiful video of our awesome Hollywood celebrities and so good to know where you are from.
I would like to know beyond taking a dna test is their anyone affordable that can help pinpoint our ancestors? For instance my gf had twenty two brothers and sisters. I have been able to locate just a few but would love to present more info to our only left elder out of 13 siblings.
Good for you. You now have where to spend your winter time, away from America that is not good in winter; not even good in summertime. Good commute for you guys: live in America for some time of the year, come back to Africa for another time and invest your capital without the American IRS bursting into your rooms and pulling you out of bed in your knickers and underpants over late tax.
10 American celebrities, imagine my shock when Idris Elba popped up
Wow Samuel L Jackson wow
You said you were doing a list not telling their life stories.
This inspired me! Woman of faith. Babe, you really utilize what you're called👍
Anthony is my brother then.
If this was true they'll use regular people and not actors. Paid actors and actresses been selling us short.
Idris Alba is not Black American. He is an African born/raised in UK.
Badu is also a Ghanaian name
We are not Africans. We are Israelites, some of which lived in Africa and were sold by real Africans to Edomite tribes who are white. Can only be African if born or naturalized there.
Tiffany Haddish has always known her native country.
To be truthful we are Americans and our
ethnic origin is from west African.
Too many black flocks are confused.
Shame on those African Countries leadership for not reaching out to these noble African descendants and volunteer offering them citizenship (dual).
I ain't from no Africa and most so called black people not. My people been right here in AmeRica from the beginning. All you dumbazzes who be(lie)ve yo azz from africa, go right ahead and I hope you got money like all these clowns on this video because that's the only way they gonna accept you. Or you can just go a be a slave over there. Good luck!!
where is Nigeria here… haha
So basically almost everyone on this video is Cameroon
You are welcome home AFRICA, especially here down south was not much black people, but Bushman/Sun people, but its is cool, Namibia♥️🇳🇦📌☄. We are all African brothers & sisters. God bless!!!
This is so awesome. I am a cameroonian
What a good vedio to watch. One day my great grand children will trace thier roots to Cameroon.
Idris Elba was born to Sierra Leonian Parents, and grew up in England.
They are our Africains kids. Welcome back home
I love how Idris Elba is considered American but he's British hehe
I believe we were created in this soil, we are Americans of color, we all come in different shades, we nee to have our own label!
No thank you. They shouldnt tell us. Just stay where they are with all their toxicity.
what about us from the southern tip of Africa nobody seems to have come from amongst us
please do not go by dna which great division befire europian took over africa was one like india like china so you are well come any part of africa is your home that should be that we are played again by dna.
most of these african americans are from Ghana,and Rwanda
What are these black celebrities really doing for Africa .Are they putting anything back into to Africa eg to help build up the African economy
This was interesting, some mistakes, but still inspiring
What I want to know is why the ranking of the celebrities. Based on their celebrity or the African citizenship or their involvement? What? Was not evident or necessary
Mostly from Cameroon 🇨🇲 Mmmmm
SMH FOOLISHNESS NOT ALL SO CALLED BLACK PEOPLE HAVE AFRICAN ROOTS Y'ALL NEED TO CUT THIS BULLSHIT OUT
Ludacris supposedly from Nigeria.
Your pronunciation is really bad. Get lessons please.
This is a deceptive lie, from many centuries. My grandmother, (whom lived to be 100) and uncle traced both sides of our families, and we do not have any African Roots, nor slaves in our families, on either side. All black do not have African ancestry, nor do all black people's bloodlines did not come from slavery either. I know my family roots and Africa is not in it, nor slavery. You folks stop believing this hyped-up mess. Like everything else in this world..
Oprah is from Liberia
Tiffany said her Father was deported in an interview.
Leave African alone, who cares
I have nuffin against Anyone who would like to know where their African roots came from, I feel its All a bunch of crap !! First white people took All of our roots away, and Now they want us to Pay to get it Back 🤔🤫🤭🙄🤢🤮. I dont need to do any of that. Im of Native American descent and African American. And my Great Grand Parents on both side lived long lives. People always say I look either Indian, or Somalian, or Ethiopian, or from the Sudan. But Me, I'm good on All that !!!
How about Michael Jackson and Steve Harvey.
Guys and girls, things are getting clearer with DNA tests from African ancestry and other specialized agencies
We, natives of Africa, confirm the following:
1-the R&B and Pop music that we heard was Afrobeat from Nigeria (mainly Igbo music): nothing has changed forever;
2-Jazz was Malinke African music from Mali to Senegal, a bit from Gambia: nothing has changed since then;
3-your best thinkers, writers, music arrangers, arts businessmen and intellectuals are descendants of Cameroonians: nothing has really changed since forever in Africa; Cameroonians and Senegalese are among the most intellectual in black Africa, and the best speakers too: nothing, absolutely nothing has changed since then;
4-your best actors are from Gambia, Guinea-bissau and Sierra-Leone or Liberia: nothing has changed here in Africa;
5-your best dancers are descendants of Ghana, Ivory Coast: nothing has changed in Africa. Try watching Ivorian dancers on video on YouTube.
We, Africans and Afro-descendants, had forgotten it. Yet nothing has really changed….since the dawn of time. The white man brought to humanity only industrialization which polluted the planet and technology which definitively did not solve any fundamental problem of the human being.
An incredible story!
