It’s been a while I last checked in and i realized that I haven’t yet shared some of my new videos I created from footages and images I recorded in Africa during my trips in 2013 (Nigeria) and 2015 (Uganda).
First off, here is a slideshow of my images from the 2 trips.
Here is video, called Mzungu from my footages from Uganda, off the beaten track for sure.
Mzungu (pronounced [m̩ˈzuŋɡu]) is a Bantu language term used in the African Great Lakes region to refer to people of European descent. It is a commonly used expression among Bantu people in Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, dating back to the 18th century. Literally translated it meant “someone who roams around aimlessly” or “aimless wanderer.” The term is now used to refer to “someone with white skin” or “white skin”. Around the middle of the video, you can hear the children chant “mzungu” constantly. They particularly enjoyed making fun of me, the mzungu with a camera.
