All you need to know about Baba Nani is that he is from FARAWAY (Federation of Afrikan Republics Against Women And Youth). A true Afrikan polygamist, Baba Nani lives in exile — under the guise of a monogamous family man — in the Unforgiving States of America.

In the Swahili language his names mean “father of so and so”, a subliminal hint that he probably has a half a billion children FARAWAY. He writes about the challenges of being an Afrikan father in a world that is no longer Afrikan.
