The Dinka people of South Sudan are believed to be the tallest in Africa. Today, this African race in its more or less pure form lives mainly in the southern Sudan and surrounding areas.

In the case of some Sudanese tribes, a sample from the 1950s estimated the average male height to be 6ft’ 4” while women of 1.8 m (6 ft).

The most famous group and more racially preserved of the Sudanese race are the Nilotic tribes (from Upper Nile area).

The most famous are Maasai, Turkana, Samburu and Dinka, whose main occupation is animal husbandry.  Dinka people do not eat during daytime.

In the evening, the family gathers around the fire to eat milk, fish, cooked water tubers, vegetables and rarely goat meat…

Congrats!! RWANDA’S FIRST DAUGHTER TIES THE KNOT WITH HER PRINCE CHARMING

Ange Ingabire Kagame (25), the only daughter of the President of Rwanda Paul Kagame, is one of the most influential young women in her country and Africa.

That’s why; all eyes were on her wedding that was held last Saturday. Kagame married to the Rwandan architect Bertrand Ndengeyingoma (26) in a private wedding ceremony in Kigali.

The wedding was held at Kigali Convention Centre and Raddison Blu Hotel in Kigali. The guest list consisted of family members and close friends.

Photos from the wedding have recently been published and are trending on social media at the moment.

https://twitter.com/AngeKagame/status/1148176409967452161

WEDDING PHOTOS

The bride and the groom have many pictures while walking down the aisle. They were accompanied by Paul Kagame and his wife, who were both proud and emotional.

Ange initially introduced Ndengeyingoma to her family in 2017 December. In 2018, a traditional religious wedding ceremony, Gusaba  was organized for the couple.

The very exclusive ceremony took place in the President’s home in a remote location in Ntebe.

 

Rumors were claiming that Paul Kagame initially did not approve the relationship and even refused to set an official wedding date; however, these claims were never proven right.

Ange Kagame, who has a smile from ear to ear in the wedding pictures, tweeted shortly after the wedding:

“I have found the one whom my soul loves- Songs of Solomon 3:4”.

Judging from their academic and professional lives, it is safe to say that they are intellectually a perfect match.

Born in Brussels/ Belgium in September 1993, Ange Kagame spent her childhood in Europe and the US to complete her education at top schools.

She also attended high school at Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Massachusetts.

https://twitter.com/AngeKagame/status/1147983681354686464

she completed her undergraduate degree at Smith College – a private liberal arts college where the undergraduate programs are only open to women.

In addition, she studied Political Science and African Studies. For her master’s degree, she studied International Affairs at Columbia University.

Ever since her graduation, she has been organizing campaigns across Africa to provide solutions for poverty and illness while also raising awareness for women’s empowerment and the importance of education.

African Celebrities Who Give Back

In 2015, she organized visits to textile factories in Rwanda to meet the female manufacturers and inform them about their rights at the workplace as well as future career plans.

In 2014, Ange Kagame made a public appearance at the White House with her father.

They were the guests of former President Barack Obama, who was hosting the United States – Africa Leaders Summit to discuss issues related to investment and security in Africa.

Bertrand Ndengeyingoma

Bertrand Ndengeyingoma is just as qualified as his new wife. His passion for architecture started at the Belgian School of Kigali, where he attended for thirteen years.

After that, he completed his bachelors and master’s degrees at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in architecture.

He is currently doing his Ph.D. at the London School of Economics while simultaneously working with the Bank of Rwanda.

Do Looks Matter? How Do You Define Beauty:  Looks are what others perceive as beautiful or attractive, like art is something that people like to look at, they get positive…

Studies show that good-looking people earn more in the work place as well enjoy more friends and sexual partners.

 

Society assumes that what is beautiful is good. Check out some of the African Celebrities that the society is obsessed with their looks, from their talents, Boobs, hips, height, Hair, talent and more.

There are universally agreed upon attributes that humans in general find attractive, but for the most part the culture, time period that you live in dictates the level of attractiveness.

It is a scientifically proven fact that men place higher premium on appearance than women.

This is a result of what millions of years of evolution has taught them – men have not evolved much since the cavemen.

When it comes to attraction, their inner “metal detectors” still look for the same cues that evolutions says are beneficial to survival of their genes,

fertility which is indicated by the attributes of youth such as full lips, radiant hair, smooth skin, clear eyes, muscle tone, firm ample bosoms, breast size, hips, facial and body symmetry, and good waist to hip ratio.

Some of the ideal attractive beauty with brains described above in no particular order:

Ghanaian TV presenter, Producer and actress Joselyn Dumas

Award winning Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah

Ghanaian actress Martha Ankomah

These attributes are also what accentuate the differences between men and women, the more pronounced the difference the bigger the attraction, men are less attracted to ‘boyish’ women and more attracted to dainty feminine women, damsel in distress…

 

Having worked with several dating services, one of my findings is that younger men prefer women who are their age or a few years younger, as men get older; especially past the age of forty they desire larger age gaps from their mates; perhaps their way of hanging on to their own youth.

How Do You Define Beauty

Men are hierarchica, and for many the only factor that overrides evolution is someone who validates their alpha male status, and the greatest evidence of a man’s social worth is a woman that is considered beautiful by the standards of the society that he lives in.

The more secure a man is the less he cares about what others think of his choice of a mate, he’s able to create his own ideal…

african celebs

Our society in general unconsciously attributes many positive traits to good looking people. Many studies have found that people assume that good looking people are more honest, intelligent and happy.

Looking good works for both the dating scene and life in general, studies show that good looking people are often looked upon favourably in employment and earn more than their less attractive counterparts.

 

The great news is that many of the universal traits of beauty are attainable by every human being – some have it naturally others have to work a little bit harder at it. Healthy looking skin is universally associated with attractiveness in both men and women.

Since women place more emphasis on men’s status and ability to provide and access resources that will ensure their survival, it is no surprise that the features that women find attractive in men are those that indicate protection, status and strength.

Most cultures perceive men with broad shoulders, arrow waists and nice chests as being attractive.

Taller men are considered attractive; an erect posture communicates confidence, status and strength. It is also believed that taller men tend to have high levels of testosterone.

Taller men are considered attractive; an erect posture communicates confidence, status and strength.

 

Men with strong broad jaws and brows are also considered attractive…

Most cultures consider slender women attractive, there are so many attractive size 10 or 12  women who think they need to lose weight, when in fact most men do not consider women of this size as equally attractive.

Just as many men do not find over obese women attractive they do not find anorexic ones attractive either – being a healthy weight that is proportionate to your height is prescription for success in attracting the right one.

It doesn’t matter what size you are, if you look like the Tasmanian devil it’s hard to find a long line of suitors….

Most women want to be wanted and appreciated for their internal riches, and unfortunately men have no interest in learning of those internal riches if they can not get past the external, you can accept this as reality and a fact of life or you can choose to do nothing to be your best and live in the delusion that it’s what’s on the inside that matters –

Perception of beauty is different in different parts of the world…Some prefer all natural beauty, others prefer plastic surgeries enhance beauty. We say whatever tickles your fancy!

African celebs - African couple in love

There is no one standard of beauty, so being your best is going to attract the right one….

Remember attraction is about instinct not intellect, so no particular Waist to hip ratio or Body Mass Index is fixed, but having clean skin that is free of gunk is within your control. 

Perception of beauty is different in different parts of the world. Some societies, (especially in Africa) define a woman’s beauty by how curvaceous they are, the size of their boobs, hips, hair, skin colour, face first even before their talent.

Africa has so many beauty with brains, diverse people, diverse beauty, diverse talent, from actors, models, Filmmaker & Entrepreneur

Even though Pamela is a model and video vixen, Ghanaians can’t stop talking about Pamela Odame Watara’s boobs. 

 

While most models are tall, men prefer women who are shorter than them, studies across multiple cultures show that women prefer men who are taller than them and men prefer women who are shorter than them…

Tall men like:

 

Ghanaian Actor and Entrepreneur John Dumelo

 

Ghanaian Actor James Gardiner

Overall, beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder…

No one goes to the grocery store and says “emm let me find the most bruised up, rotten melons in here and pay premium price for it” Truth is while you’re on the market, you have to keep the produce super fresh…

Your outer appearance is a direct measure of how happy you are in life, it communicates a lot – self esteem, openness, confidence, insecurities, personal shames, sexual desires, and much more.

Celebrity hairstyles can be a great source of ideas for people who want to know how to update their look. Photographs of celebrities show trendy, cool hairstyles that a person can have a hairstylist copy. There are some factors to consider when choosing cool hairstyles from celebrities.

Hairstyles and makeup do not look the same on everyone. Hair ranges from thin and fine to thick. Not all hair types can easily or successfully be styled the same way. A good hairstylist may be able to explain whether or not the person’s hair type is suitable for the celebrity hairstyle that they want.

Watch The Video Below For The Best Hair And Makeup Trends To Try Now… Some hairstyles that look amazing on a celebrity can look awful on a person with a face that is a different shape than the celebrity’s face. When choosing a celebrity hairstyle to try, the person should compare the shape of their face with that of the celebrity.

If a person receives a haircut that is perfectly executed but an unflattering style for their face shape, the results will look bad even though the haircut itself was well done. So, the face shape is the first thing to determine when looking for a cool hairstyle. The typical face shapes include oval, round, square, heart, oblong, diamond, and triangular…. By Tonighter

An oval-shaped face can be flattered by almost any hairstyle though many prefer to have long layers. An example of a celebrity with an oval face who has long hair cut in long layers is Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé Knowles, Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson….  Hairstyles that tend to be less flattering for an oval face shape are those that cover parts of the face.

Browsing through all these cool hairstyles of celebrities with the same face shape as you will help you select a hairstyle that is more likely to look as good on you as it does on the celebrity than if the shape of the face is not a match. Getting a celebrity hairstyle that compliments the shape of your face is a great way to update your look.
