The Spirit of Ubuntu; *Spoken Word* An African Philosophy

Ubuntu allows us to understand that under the African Sun,
We have the ability to enjoy one culture just as much as another
To dance to Afro-beats, having never been to Western Africa,
To enjoy braai and chakalaka from Southern Africa,
Just as much as chapatti and nyama-choma from East Africa
To know that even with over 2,000 different languages and tribes,
Whether you are,
Kikuyu or Zulu,
Fulani or Swahili,

Tswana or Kamba,

We all have an underlying bond, so strong that our differences in culture only add to our shared identity
