African Twitter Is Still Making Our Stomachs Hurt in Laughter with #IfAfricaWasASchool

Another hilarious take on the complexities of the continent courtesy of African Twitter.

African Twitter is back at it again with the ever trending #IfAfricaWasASchool hashtag, where we get the lowdown on the complex and hilarious dynamics of the continent, but this time in a school setting (remember #IfAfricaWasABar?).


This fluid exchange is still flooding Twitter with witty tweets commenting on Africa’s (old) leaders, colonization, tensions between certain countries and the never ending Jollof Wars, to name a few.
