A South African fashion model has raised concern about why Africans in the Diaspora fail to share the plight of the countries from which they have sought asylum or have gone to hustle for the cash.
Oftentimes, Africa is always painted by the outside world as poor; always sharing photos of places that they deem will paint the perfect picture of people living on the continent.
It is in view of this that a South African model has shared in a tweet on her Twitter page telling Africans to normalize posting photos of deplorable places in Western countries just as the Westerners as well, come to Africa to take photos of underdeveloped places, and post on the internet.
To buttress her point, the user, @Sli_Buth shared photos of a quite impoverished Cañada Real which is just outside of Madrid, Spain places and wrote,
“Normalize posting these poor parts of Europe like they do with Africa. Cañada Real (just outside of Madrid), Spain.”

Some Twitter users on the other hand raised issues that most parts of Africa look much better than the Photos displayed whilst others expressed shock on the bad state some people in the diaspora live
