Leading Kenyan celebrity popularly known as Teacher Wanjiku is the latest African big name personality to join the economic revolution spearheaded by The Black Wall Street (BWS).
Teacher Wanjiku is joined by another top personality Serah Ndanu.
So much talk has been made about the need for Africa to unite. Unfortunately no one knows how to make this unity happen.
Common economic interest is a chord that binds stronger than nationality, tribe, religion, location, community and even family.
And there’s no better unifier than the Africa economic war, the first of it’s kind.
“Africa’s first economic war, the platform for common economic interest for Africa is delighted to welcome two of the best of Kenya in grassroots communication.
These celebrities and social influencers diligently studied our recipe for Africa economic independence and decided to join the fight.
From Kenya we welcome..
Teacher Wanjiku….Queen of comedy and arguably the most popular Kenyan.
Serah Ndanu….Media personality, Award winning actress and one of the most influential people in Kenya.
We have come on this platform to bring to pass the dreams of our ancestors, to establish the fantasies of our slave brothers who cried through the likes of Bob Marley. We are here to fulfil history that one day, the last shall be the first.
Welcome to the BWS community,” a statement reads.
