African culture has been projected variously by different scholars. The case of this being willy-nilly misrepresented often by “tainted” accounts from Western perspective has it fair dose in extant literature. The imperative to address this pejorative and present accurate account of the rich African culture and its import is one of the cardinal aims and objectives of this Journal. And the Journal of African Films, Diaspora Studies, Performance Arts and Communication Strategies is a veritable platform for advancing and sustaining this course. Thus, it provides an avenue for African scholars at home and in the Diaspora to project African cultural heritage and its multi-faceted sectoral impact on the society through films, dramas, music, dance, masquerades, carnivals and other forms of communication.
The Journal strives to uphold the virtues of African culture, addresses its crisis with Western culture and the impact on Africans as well as African states. In this Issue, answers to some of these are proffered through discussions on scenes in African films, protests music, social media communication, transnational dimension to myth and the need to corporatize the movie industry. While we commend the contributors for adhering to the specifics of the journal and responding to the issues raised by the Reviewers, we also thank our anonymous Reviewers for their time and painstaking efforts, as well as acknowledge the publishers, Adonis & Abbey Publishers. We thrive on the confidence reposed in us with regard to the selection of articles and the publication process.
