Religion and spirituality are so deeply embedded into the everyday lives of millions of Africans. It’s a continent where myths, religion, superstition, God, the divine, the supernatural and spirits come alive. The incredible array of spiritual beliefs in Africa is truly mind-boggling. There’s no way to quantify it. Spirituality in Africa is endlessly fascinating to me. I’ve spent years studying it and I still feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface.
If you find yourself in a smaller community in Africa, particularly the ones outside of the big cities, it’s a good idea to respect the customary greeting protocols.
