AFRICAN AMERICANIZED is an actual safari of African immigrants, depicting the sort of struggles, challenges and experiences in which they are constantly hounded in, while in America, as a result of the historical dilemmas we are faced with in the pursuit of better livelihoods.
In this book, an African man's life is portrayed in a modern clarification, indicating the central position they find themselves in as they evolve from the African way of life into Americanization-painfully capitulating their own cultures. This has culminated into resultant bewilderment, dilemma and an egoistically regrettable life, leading to undesirable choices in their scramble to attain material, and sometimes academic wealth.
My own safari to the United States of America sets a suitable example, portraying the newness, indecisiveness, and subsequent orientation to the American lifestyle. It never came easy because it was as good as reliving my life once again-without the birth process and the essential stages of childhood, and physical, mental development.
In this humorous American safari, I stand at the intersection of African values and heritage thus contrasting the African way of life with the American lifestyle. It is a sincere, painful experience considering the initial situation and dilemma in which African immigrants find themselves in upon arrival in America; the newness of the situation; a uniquely shocking way of life, and the subsequent orientation to Americanization.
