A walking work of art, Gregory Da Silva is more than an odd spectacle – he is a symbol of Africa’s many diverse cultures…

In the first heady years of the African Union, the world’s eyes are increasingly turned to the continent from which humankind first appeared. The outfit always turns heads – and each day it boasts a new feature, a new symbol of an African culture or practice. His headdress weighs up to twenty five kilograms, his body is armoured with artifacts and his face painted with tribal patterns and an undying smile. Born in Benin, West Africa, 1979, he was trained in computer science at university, but went on to found a theatre group in Benin called ‘Voice of Spirit’ or ‘Voix de l’Esprit’, which performed politically motivated as well as comic and poetic theatre at the Benin National.

He performs every day in Market square Cape Town and adds an air of Rio-style festivity wherever he performs. Many tourrists from Germany, England, America, Italy, France, Belguim call Gregory – “The Eggman”, “Eierman” or “Chicken Man”. Very famous in Africa. and almost an institution at Art festivals in South Africa. Gregory da Silva walks Green Market Square (in Cape Town). The outfit always turns heads – and each day it boasts a new feature, a new symbol of an African culture or practice. His headdress weighs up to twenty five kilograms, his body is armoured with artifacts and his face painted with tribal patterns and an undying smile. Each day, Gregory Da Silva presents the city centre with a new display of his symbolic art. Gregory’s voice is lively and he repeatedly offers phrases and words in French.

Born in Benin, West Africa, 1979, he was trained in computer science at university, but went on to found a theatre group in Benin called ‘Voice of Spirit’ or ‘Voix de l’Esprit’, which performed politically motivated as well as comic and poetic theatre at the Benin National Library. After receiving an invitation to perform at the MASA – Market for African Performing Arts – Festival in the Ivory Coast in 2003, where he represented his country, Benin, for a week before flying to South Africa. He sold his creations at the V&A Waterfront and began to grace the streets of Cape Town with his unique form of art. It was so unique it initially led the bemused Cape Town police to put him in the back of their car and call their superiors for advice! Naturally the superiors advised them to let him go and now Gregory enjoys a good relationship with the city authorities…

Attention is soon turned to his artifact-laden tunic which Gregory says is about “all African tradition, all African culture[s]” and he goes on to explain some of the more prominent objects displayed. First, he points out the clusters of sea shells hanging around his neck, saying that in Africa these shells were “old money” and once used as currency. He explains the eggs on his head dress as being symbolic of life and says “everything must be life, everything must shine, [and] be positive”.

Next his hands grab the arcane black bottle near his waist to explain that in his culture, the Sangoma people would place “good spirits” in a bottle, with which they would “heal sick people [they] passed while walking on the roads”. The broken shards of mirror found on his chest bear similar spiritual significance, and are often worn by Voodoo people in Africa and are said to be a kind of window into the spiritual world, and a “way to talk to [their] ancestor[s]”.Gregory says his main inspiration or motivation is to “make people laugh” and “make people happy” and to represent different African cultures.

He says he always thinks “how we can put all of Africa together to make [it] one”, adding that “not one country can be forgotten”. When he is travelling in Africa, be it in Senegal, Cameroon, Mali or the Congo, the local people invariably look at him and say “ahh, that is our culture” as they see something of their own represented. “All Africa is in my clothes” he says, drawing attention again to his peerless suit.

When not walking St. Georges Mall or Green Market Square, Gregory features at the Grahamstown festival, the Hermanus Whale Festival, has been hired to receive guests at hotels and airports, and has also appeared on SABC 2 and E-TV News. He is very popular with tourists, especially those from Italy, England, America and Germany, who frequently ask why he does not come over and do his thing in their own country.

But he says his focus is on Africa. Pictures of him certainly do get back to their countries though, as Gregory says everyday “hundreds” of pictures are taken of himself, usually posing with the tourists. Asked about his dreams and ambitions, Gregory (or the “Egg Man” or “Ei man” as he is also known) says that he is planning on starting an art school, which is part of his ‘Project For Africa’ . He wants to impart creative knowledge to South African youth, giving them the power to create beautiful things and also to support themselves, all part of his ultimate venerable ambition to “[bring] Africa together to make one.

Friday, 04 June 2010

The Egg Man has become a symbol of the uniqueness and deep Joie de vivre of the African Continent. The Egg Man, who is based in Cape Town is seen at many of the festivals, fairs and events around South Africa. Tourists from around the world can’t enough of The Egg Man, this larger than life character, who prowls the streets in his African dress and huge egg hats. Some weigh up to 25 kg yet he manages to walk the streets day in and day out without mishap.

Forever ready to solve your problems with the wisdom of the dark continent, Gregory Da Silva forgot years ago how not to smile and laugh. If you are touring South Africa and he is not off at some or other event you’ll find him in the City Centre of Cape Town – Green Market Square is his favourite haunt, or down at the V and A Waterfront. Gregory hails from the tiny West African Country Benin – a true international entertainer. See Gregory Da Silva on The Egg Man website, and email him to find out where he will be performing. While in Cape Town you may want to do some touring.

10 Biggest Alcohol Drinking Countries In Africa

By

Nelson Nwankwo

http://www.afrojuju.net/2015/04/04/1o-biggest-alcohol-drinking-countries-in-africa/

 

 

The 10 biggest alcohol drinking nations in Africa has always been a topic of big debate between us Africans, but for sure alcohol consumption in eastern Europe and south America is a culture, especially in Russian federation, Belarus and Ukraine even Germany all have a record on alcohol consumption.

In many countries people don’t always wake up to a Saturday morning the same. some get up really sober why some get up really hang overred, On this exclusive article we shall try to solve the puzzle of the 10 biggest alcohol drinking countries in Africa using a statistical calculation of the liters consumed per year.

So, here are the 10 Biggest Alcohol Drinking Countries in Africa

 

  1. Tanzania-7.7 liters/year

In Tanzania 11% of alcohol consumption comes from beer, and only 0.2% comes from wine, which is actually beneficial to heart. 1.8% comes from spirits and 87% of alcohol consumption is from other types of alcohol. Tanzanians are known to make moonshine-and  very traditional type of  alcoholic drinks, which the local population tend to Obliged more. since virtually halve the population live below $1 per day. and the moon shine alternatives are way cheaper.

  1. Botswana – 7.96 liters/year

Botswana also one of the 10 biggest alcohol drinking countries in Africa,among the alcohol consumption – 42% – coming from the “other” category. But its beer consumption is even higher, making up 57% of the total. This may be due to the high consumption of Botswana’s national beer, St Louis, though many (locals and visitors alike) say that St. Louis is worse than the cheapest light beers found elsewhere in the world. Many opt for beer imports from nearby South Africa or Namibia instead. which firmly solidifies its spot among the elite 10 biggest alcohol drinking countries in Africa.

  1. Gabon – 9.32 liters/year

The favored alcoholic drink of choice for Gabonians is clear. While 10% and 22% of alcohol consumption in Gabon comes from wine and spirits respectively, 68% comes from beer. The cheapest and most popular beer in Gabon is Regab, costing from $0.70 to $2, and the lack of tax on any alcoholic beverages makes it easy to import from abroad. In-fact Gabon is a dream nation for all alcohol aficionado, because it has the cheapest priced alcoholic beverages in Africa and only second to the Russian Federation in the world.

  1. South Africa – 9.46 liters/year

Alcohol is a lot more expensive than in Gabon, In such a big country, it’s no surprise there’s a wider break-up of preferred beverage choice: 56% of consumption comes from beer, which is no surprise because people are little more economically sound, while 17%, 16%, and 11% come from wine, spirits, and “other” respectively. The most popular beer brands are Castle and Black Label, but the country’s extensive wine vineyards, particularly in Stellenbosch and the Western Cape, produce some of the world’s most popular wines as well. The wine capital of African takes the 7th spot in the 10 biggest alcohol drinking countries in Africa.

  1. Burundi – 9.47 liters/year

Narrowly beating out South Africa, drinkers in Burundi overwhelmingly prefer “other” drinks, which make up 81% of consumption. Beer, by comparison, makes up 19% of alcohol consumption and wine and spirits barely make a showing. The most famous drink in the Burundi is urwarwa or banana wine, produced in the traditional method and consumed most often during festivals and special occasions. Alcohol drinking in Burundi is almost like a tradition.

  1. Namibia – 9.62 liters/year

Like its South African neighbor, Namibia has a wide break-down of favorite drinks, but beer carries the most weight with 67% of alcohol consumption. Spirits make up 20%, wine makes up 7% and “other” chips in at 6%. The country’s flagship beer, Windhoek Lager, is popular across the country and surrounding region, and is similar to many lighter German beers (not surprising, given the colonial history) is almost like Namibia was colonized to consume alcohol.

  1. Rwanda – 9.10 liters/year

Just 8% of alcohol consumption comes from beer in Rwanda, despite the popular Turbo King, Primus, and Amstel brands being widely available. The other 92 percent is largely from homemade drinks such as the banana beer, urgwagwa, and the fermented honey drink, ubuki. Ikigage, made from dry sorghum, is also common in Rwanda.

  1. Kenya – 9.72 liters/year

While just 43% of Kenya’s alcohol consumption comes from beer, some of the popular beer brands in Kenya includes Tusker Lager, Tusker Premium Lager, Alcohol consumption in Kenya became so rampant that the government made steps to cub the rate. Also in Kenya women are not left out in Alcohol consumption unlike in most countries on this list, especially Nigeria. Kenyan women also drink as much alcohol as the men. there are also other alcoholic brands in Kenya and the consumption of wine is also rampant, but only among the very “elite” those at the apex of the Kenyan economy.

  1. Uganda – 11.93 liters/year

Ahead of the pack by a long shot is Uganda with 11.93 liters of alcohol consumed each year. Just 4% of consumption comes from beer and 2% from wine, with the “other” category a resounding winner at 94% of consumption. The generic term for domestically distilled beverages in Uganda is  the famous Ugandan Waragi,which contain around 42% of Alcohol making it one of the most alcoholic spirit in the world. but this can cover a wide variety of drinks: pombe and lubisi, or locally made banana or millet beer, tonto, a traditionally fermented drink made from bananas, banana wine, and many more.During my visit to Kampala, most times i wondered if people actually had jobs. because from 24hrs to 7 days a week at every time people where always in the pubs consuming alcohol. if not for the respect of statistics and the heavy population of Nigeria, Uganda would have easily become the Drunkest nation in Africa by a million Miles. A fun country to visit for alcohol aficionados. strongly remains 2nd in the 10 Biggest alcohol drinking countries in Africa.

  1. Nigeria – 12.28 liters/year

No. 1 in Africa for alcohol consumption by the virtue of population which technically results in higher volume and liters consumed per year. Beer makes up just 16% of alcohol consumption in Nigeria, while “other” drinks make up 84% due to the high popularity of home-brewed beverages. Religious lawmakers are making it more difficult and expensive to produce and sell alcohol in the country. Known as Nigeria’s home brew, “ogogoro” is an extremely alcoholic drink . It has 30%-to-60% ethyl alcohol content, depending on how it’s made, and is produced from the juice of raffia palm trees, also some Nigerians also have the famous palm wine especially in the east of the country, palm win is simply the natural alcohol and is also found in other parts of west and central Africa.

So that is the 1O Biggest Alcohol Drinking Countries In Africa you can also contribute your own opinion about the list.
