#CHAN2014 Updates: who’s through to the semi-finals?

After being down 0-3 againnst the Lions of the Atlas Mountains, Nigeria beat Morocco 4-3, scoring 3 goals in the second half and their winning goal in extra time, to make it through to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Zimbabwe made history for qualifying for the semi-finals round for the first time ever in the team’s history after beating Mali 2-1.

The heated match between Libya and Gabon saw the former team qualified by beating Gabon 4-2 in penalties.

Ghana’s 1-0 win, with a goal that came about as a result of a penalty kick, was regarded with a lot of controversy by many DR Congo fans on twitter who claim the ref did not handle the game fairly.

Upcoming matches: Semi-Finals (Weds. 25th Jan)

  • Libya vs Zimbabwe - 5pm CAT
  • Nigeria vs Ghana - 8:30 CAT

All Africa, All the time.

The nominations are in for BBC’s African Footballer of the Year competition for 2013. 

This year’s five players all hail from West Africa and represent four African countries, namely Gabon, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast. No surprise there considering how well West African teams did at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, with Nigeria taking the title and Burkina Faso coming in second place. 

List of the nominated candidates, their nationality, and their club teams:

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - Gabon and Borussia Dortmund
  • Victor Moses - Nigeria and Liverpool (on loan from Chelsea)
  • John Mikel Obi - Nigeria and Chelsea
  • Jonathan Pitroipa - Burkina Faso and Rennes
  • Yaya Toure - Ivory Coast and Manchester City

Who would you vote for?

The New African Photography - Emeka Okereke: Invisible Borders

"100 years ago, photography was a colonial tool…"

"A photography is a window and not the view" - Emeka Okereke

For decades, the camera was used as a tool through which colonial governments and Western photojournalists alike imposed their own views on Africa through the restrictions of 2D imagery, defining Africa without much, if any, input from those whose faces were plastered on postcards, posters, magazines and media platforms across the world.

Profiling a new crop of African photographers using their lens to transform and inspire both change and development, Al Jazeera opens us up to the world of Nigerian photographer Emeka Okereke, founder of Invisible Borders - a organization that gives ‘African artists a space to define Africa for themselves’. In this video, the group travels on their annual roadtrip within Africa, going from Lagos to Kinshasa, as a means of developing young African artists through the lens of photojournalism.

A must-watch journey.

FILM: “Tu seras mon Allié” (Dir. Rosine Mfetgo Mbakam, 2012)

Cameroonian director Rosine Mfetgo Mbakam’s most recent short film follows the story of Domé, a 35 year old woman from Gabon played by actress Bwanga Pilipili, who is stopped at the airport in Brussels, Belgium, due to discrepancies with her paperwork.

Domé then faces a long and grueling ordeal in the form of an interrogation by Belgian airport officials, unsure of whether or not she’ll realize her dream of entering the European country.

The English translation of the film’s title is ‘You Will Be My Ally’.
