I Africa

A Zulu Chief and Witch Doctor wining together

Carnival Hollywood stars in Trinidad and Tobago

These two portrayals are representing the African roots in Trinidad and Tobago. At the Traditional Carnival venue at Victoria Square, Port of Spain in 2006, a Witch Doctor and Zulu Chief posed before the paparazzi moments before entering the stage through a blue nylon sheet. This is what African representation means to Trinidad and Tobago, with many of the ideas merely lifted from magazines like National Geographic. They are kitsch and vile at the same time.

A warrior from a region of Africa, he ain't out to play mas
