"The tragedy of Euro Centrism when the Europeans thought the whole world spins and focused only on them even not recognizing the powers and cultures in Asia came gradually to an end. Our changed and redefined African values that each individual first and foremost is responsible for his own fate and the outcome of his life no more blame games on others or circumstances created a new spirit of responsible entrepreneurship.
