    Good one chuck, a little dated, but on point nevertheless. Here's the movie Family, enjoy:

    The death of community leader and Catholic 'noble man' Guelwaar (Ndiaye) brings his family back to Senegal, but his funeral is delayed when his body goes missing.

    There's crazy stories all over the world with the only thing changing is the cultural surroundings. Like Tupac's Brenda was an actual story. The story Precious that made the movie was a real story as well. Modern Africa is so many different things because Africa is a continent with 52 different countries across a vast area of land that is the second largest continent on Earth. I think alot of people get that confused with 50 states within one country, lol. You can travel in the U.S and the regions change with slight difference here and there but you can still get a generalized cultural similarity. Which is not the same on the continent of Africa which has existing kingdoms, all with diverse and contrasting cultures sometimes, encircled by an artificial colonized state left by Europeans.

    Lets not forget that Afrika was demarcated into countries by the Colonizers. Before then, there were Only KINGDOMS and CHIEFDOMS. Therefore, you can find AKAN Cultural elements in Ivory Coas. Vodou[juju] is common in Ghana, Togo etc. The underlyin message is that, Afuraka was a Continent of Kingdoms, not Countries. The current divisions are a ploy by the colonial masters to split and weaken Us, so that we fall easy prey to them!
