Discovering the Deeper Diversity within African Culture: Kasem Nnanna

There are so many ways to travel Africa, and it is one of the most diverse continents in the world.

Africa is a continent of 54 countries and the home to some of the most diverse cultures in the world. The continent has the highest number of different ethnic groups in the world, with over 2,000 different ethnicities identified across its borders. It also has more languages than any other region on Earth: over 1,000 spoken languages have been recorded within Africa’s borders!

Not only is Africa a place where people speak many different languages and practice many different religions (including Christianity), but they also have unique customs that vary depending on where they live. In Nigeria, for example, there is a tradition called ‘necklacing’ which involves placing tires around someone’s neck and setting them alight when they have been accused of wrongdoing or dishonesty against another person or group within society; whereas Zulu warriors would wear animal skins during battle so as not show blood stains from their wounds when fighting against other tribesmen during times war between groups living together peacefully…

This diversity can be reflected in so many different ways – economically, socially, politically and culturally.

Animism is a religion that believes in the spiritual power of natural objects, such as trees and rocks. The word “animism” comes from the Latin word anima (soul). It’s practiced by many different African ethnic groups including: Zulu people of South Africa, who believe that all living things have souls; Ashanti tribe from Ghana who believe all humans have two souls–one soul stays with your body after death while another travels to heaven or hell depending on how you lived your life; Yoruba people from Nigeria who practice ancestor worship where they pray for guidance from past generations

Traditional African religion is often defined by social norms rather than religious doctrine.
