  1. Continue to play and dream
    when w'll finished kick out french, english. It's New air four our Mother language(ߒߞߏ) and start built à New civilisation ever exist on all history of mindkind.
    Africa will not be unified but it's can be federation of military.

  2. EVERY JOURNEY STARTS WITH ONE STEP. SPEAKING ONE LANGUAGE IN THE AFRICAN BLOCK WILL ACT AS A CATALYST TO BIND THE AFRICAN CONTINENT AND ITS PEOPLE TOGETHER IN THIS ENDOWED RISING REGION. IT WILL ALSO INCREASE SECURITY AND BUSINESSES. IT IS THE PERFECT MOVE OF THE CENTURY, WELL DONE OUR LEADERS.

  3. 😂😂😂 ain't no one gonna adopt it as the formal language 😂😂 u dumb to sign to learn the language 🤦🤦😂 ur language holds lineage and history it's a no thanks from me 💅

  4. I'm super excited about this. I am AFRICAN American, I practice Kwanzaa yearly and my wife and I are learning Kiswahili. When I finally get to African I feel comfortable I will be able to communicate with my brothers and sisters on the continent.

  5. … I have just googled the origin of this language and aparently it is being classified as an Arabic language that was introduced to the people on the east coast of Africa by the white Arabic slave traders, and that the white Arabic slavers were the ones who created it!
    … Is this true? If so, maybe this aspect needs further clarification for me because I really find it a very troubling aspect for Africa to be adopting this particular language as it's continental standard bearer! Sorry! (SMDH)
    … WHY DOES AFRICA ALWAYS HAVE TO ACCOMODATE, DEFER, AND ACQUIESCE TO OTHER RACIAL GROUPS AND NATIONALITIES EVEN WHEN THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES TO BE A FREE CONTINENT ? ? ?
    … KISWAHILI SEEMS TO HAVE A COLONIAL SLAVERY PROBLEM WITHIN IT'S HISTORY THAT WILL ENTUALLY BECOME A CULTURAL PROBLEM FOR AFRICA IN THE FUTURE! I HAVE MOST DEFINITELY FORESEEN IT!
    … SO MAYBE WE SHOULDN'T ALL CLAP AT ONCE FOR THIS VAST ACHIEVEMENT! ATLEAST NOT UNTIL THE INCIDENT OF THE TAINTED ORIGINS OF HOW THIS LANGUAGE WAS REALLY SPREAD ACROSS AFRICA!
    … I FEAR THAT, IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL BE UNINTENTIONALLY OFFENDING A LOT OF OUR OWN FUTURE INDIGENOUS AFRICAN CHILDREN BY ADOPTING THIS LANGUAGE AS OUR LINGUA FRANCA! AND IF IT IS LATER FOUND OUT THAT THIS LANGUAGE WAS THE LANGUAGE OF THE ARABIC SLAVE TRADERS, WELL, THAT WOULD BE A BIG, BIG PROBLEM! IJS!
    … WE CANNOT BUILD A FREE AND HONEST FUTURE FOR AFRICA BY OVERLOOKING OUR PAST HISTORY WITH COLONIZATION, SLAVERY, AND RACISM! WE MUST UPROOT EVERY IOTA OF FOREIGN OPPRESSION AND INFLUENCE THAT EVEN GIVES EVEN A HINT OF COMPLIANCE WITH THAT CROOKED, EVIL, COLONIAL ENSLAVEMENT PAST, OR WE WILL OPEN UP OUR FUTURE GEBERATIONS TO RIDICULE AND DERISION FROM THOSE VERY SAME FIREIGN CULTURES! SO, THE FIRST STEP TO THAT END WILL BE CREATING A PURELY BLACK AFRICAN "LINGUA FRANCA"! ONE THAT IS NOT TIED TO ANY OF THOSE BARBARIC CULTURES (ARABIC OR EUROPEAN) WHICH BOTH HAVE A LONG STANDING TRADITION OF DEHUMANIZING TREATMENT OF ALL "BLACK" AFRICAN PEOPLES A EVEN UP TO THIS VERY DAY!
    … Now, I must admit, I am a Black Man from AMERICA, and I am not familiar with this subject at all, but from what I have seen about this language on Google, I have become quite concerned! Google says that Kiswahili was created by the white Arabic slave traders that were trafficking in black African slaves and other perishable "goods" all up and down the east coast of Africa! And this description was repeated in several of these Google searches, too!
    … Now, I don't know about you, but for me to learn about that little description of Lordship on my Google search page just made my stomach turn! Why do we black Africans always have to be gullible idiots, always bending our knees to some other culture rather than standing up for our collective black humanity of African people and destroy every vestige of slavery and colonialism that has scarred the hearts and minds of all African people up to this very day? If we don't stop this cognitive dissonance now, Africa will be forever doomed to be subservient to these foreign cultures for our foreseeable future!
    … Now, I know that I may not be an indigenous African, but I can still relate to how I, as a Black Man, would feel about the subject of adopting such a language as KISWAHILI. And given Kiswahili's tainted history, a detail like that would be devastaing to my subconscious foundation of my own black African self realization!
    …And, in truth, a strong, bright, and clear African culture cannot be built upon the burial ground of black African suffering, slavery, and dehumanization! We must either remove all traces of the other cultures from the language first, or we will be inviting unneeded psychological problems in our own collective future for our children when the childrens children of our former oppressors come into contact with our own childrens children and claim for themselves all the credit for our childrens children's accomplishments based upon something as trivial as this! If you don't believe me on this, just look at how the whites have done ancient Egypt! These goofy white RACISTS have made movies and written scientific books depicting the indigenous Egyptians as blonde haired, blue eyed, white people who were ruling over all of the indigenous black people as the
    natural masters of the indigenous black population of slaves! Google up the movie, 'God's of Egypt', and watch in horror as black history is white washed and repackaged as a European culture! But I digress…sorry.(Ahem)

    … So, Africa better wake up to the subtle influence of trusting other foreign cultures with having any credit for anything that indigenous Africa does because it was just that kind of laxadaisical attitude that the native Americans had towards the invading foreign cultures from Europe that was the catalyst to how the whole collective group of indigenous native Americans lost the whole continent of North America! And that's a cold, hard, fact, Jack!
    … Anyways, that's all that I have to say about that for now! Wake up, Africa! The future is ours, but only if WE REBUILD IT OURSELVES WITHOUT ANY (NONE, ZILCH, NADA, BUPKISS) HELP FROM ANY HOSTILE FOREIGN CULTURES! THE TIME OF 'KUMBAYAH' IS OVER! THE TIME FOR CLEAR AND SERIOUS BLACK AFRICAN UNITY IS HERE!
    … STAND UP, AND STAY BLACK, AFRICA! OUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN WILL ALL THANK US FOR IT!
    … AFRICA FIRST!
