This was her first visit to the continent since taking office and was focused on deepening US partnerships with African nations.

With all due respect Africa needs more than artist promotion. NBA All stars had Nigerian rapper. That's not the direction for Africa. It's nauseous to be treated just like another Africa American who's been put in a cage by Americans and what is expected of them is sport and music only. Africa is Free and diverse in all sectors of the economy. I hope Africa leaders could learn from the East how to progress. Kagame is Learning faster and developing a nation and culture. Don't buy into democracy nonsense that the West has been selling while stealing massive resources and funding NGO with peanut to keep Africans busy. Shetani ashindwe
