Some people want to save Africa, but they won’t take one hour to go to a local court to change their name back to an African name.
One hour. Just one.
Here in Togo it cost 10euros and a quick explanation letter.
When asked why you want to change your slave or colonial name, write something like ‘this name confuses me with historic terrorists. I’m not French nor Arab. Also the name is ugly sounding and people laugh at me when I say I’m from Cameroon and my name is John-Paul and I post anti Christian stuff on Facebook. I look ridiculous. Save me from the shame wearing the same name as our enemies’.
