Africa is in defiance; it's rising against the common narrative of war, poverty and hunger. In this new Africa, there is a lot to celebrate, a lot to live for. Some call it a creative template from which the world borrows its ideas. Others, like tech genius Mark Kaigwa, have compared it to Silicon Valley and called it the "Silicon Savannah". Others simply call it, the place where the music is. Africa is indeed rising.

As we wrap up Africa Month in May, we met up with some celebrities and asked them to open their hearts to Africa. “When you hear the phrase 'Africa is a Feeling', what comes to mind?” is all we had to ask.
