The book African child tells a story about an African born child who struggled right from his infancy, but through perseverance and hard work has become successful and continues his living not in his native country but in a foreign land.
His life has been undulating and meandering. No one understands how tough it is to live in a home where there is chaos and no peace, particularly when mother and father are in constant disagreement, unless they have done it. He went through a lot; there are turns in which the boy realizes his dreams and successes after dedicating his life to continued improvement. To grow and become the best, one has to work harder on it.
He stumbled across many opportunities to make his life better as the years went by. Many things went wrong along the way: divorce, mother’s death, falling behind in paying bills, sickness, changing jobs, etc. Kofi continues to be optimistic that someday he will be successful in this land of opportunities: The United States of America.
