Some can’t show where Africa is on the world map. Whatever they know is the stereotype of Africa from movies and internet sources. As an African, I always look for opportunity to contrast the stereotypical views about Africa with the good life that I had in that homeland.

INTRODUCTION I come from the Kikuyu tribe of Kenya and though I have substantially been brought up in the cosmopolitan Nairobi city my parents and grandparents were close to their Kikuyu culture and through them and the many writings about our culture I find that my way of thinking and relating affected by my background and cultural beliefs. I do know that culture relates to a peoples way of life and particularly their beliefs and traditional practices but I believe as well that these evolve through time especially with intermarriages between different tribes that come from different cultures; in fact I have married from the Kenyan Luo tribe and being a cosmopolitan person based in the Nairobi City where all cultures have been thrown into the same melting pot my children are challenged unlike myself in observing two different cultures that are very different but ofcourse still African.

The above listed characteristics therefore help identify what could be classified as media; cinema, television, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, radio, interactive multimedia, video games, computers, mobile phones, pagers, texters and the Internet are some of the viable media options made available to us these days. Widely utilized as a source of information, the media plays an extremely important role in our society. Unable to constantly access this information first hand, we rely on the media to serve as an informational source that is to be trusted.
