Salutations. This page has been created with two purposes in mind:
1) To encourage media outlets to get in contact with the Displaced African
In a nutshell, if your media outlet is doing good work and you want to interview me or get in touch with me, I am available 24/7 as long as I receive prior notification of 24 hours or more.
2) To post up all the press that the Displaced African receives and all its media appearances:
I don’t want to have to stop churning out content in the intended order or interrupt the regularly scheduled programming of the blog every time I appear in the media.
And so I have created this page which I will update every time I make a media appearance that I can publicly share. Check on this place regularly as I intend on media and media appearances becoming a big part of the Displaced African blog.
Media and Press Appearances
My cash flow muse, got a front page chance to display its merit when it was featured on the 4th biggest Internet marketing blog on Earth ( 50,000 daily RSS readers+), Entrepreneur’s Journey. Check out the article below:
On 21st December 2008, after a period where I had tried for months, without any effort, one of my articles got featured on Global Voices Online. It was:
Featured on the Homepage of the African Bulletin on September 2008
Thanks to Caroline Atieno, a writer from the African Bulletin and a comrade in arms for not only putting my press release on the homepage of the African Bulletin in September 2008 but also getting me a monthly spot on their newspaper. Asante sana!

Interviewed by Capital FM on July 9th 2008
A great 30 minute interview with Linda that was featured on Urban Nites on Capital FM. I recorded this myself by recording the live stream of Capital FM and then cutting it up in an amateur fashion: the content is still 100% intact and hearable:
My Interview with SARFM Radio in New York
As a result of my press release being featured on African Loft, I got a call from the lovely Pamela Stitch all the way in New York and we managed to record this fun interview where we cover aspects of my immigrant life, interracial relationships, Heidi Klum and Seal:
