    Adewale and Boris……….These guys are oozing charisma. My heart just popped out of my chest and I can’t stop shaking. Uuuuwiiiii! Eish!

  • P.Amanda says:

    Boris should not have been #1, Ms. Latina. I don’t care what movies you’ve seen. Maybe because his appearance is similar to a Latino man you think he should have been #1. At any rate the choices they made were great except the football player Adewale Ogunleye was missing from the list.

  • SCW says:

    October 23rd, 2007 at 7:22 am

    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje should have been #1. I CRAVE this man. Great list!

  • blkgoddessrise says:

    October 23rd, 2007 at 7:23 am

    interesting…the top two chosen are the lighter skinned- africans. you might want to ask yourselves if that was a factor in your choices? right now any woman would say that idris elba is killing it right now!

  • kaykay says:

    i don’t think any of them except boris should have made the list just my opinion

  • Emilee says:

    October 23rd, 2007 at 12:29 pm

    Idris Elba, Adewale (“Bull Sharky”) and Chiwetel are just GORGEOUS men. I couldn’t tell you a single thing that i remember from that Madea movie, all I remember was that I pushed the pause button at almost every Idris Elba full-body scene/shot.

  • Mo says:

    October 23rd, 2007 at 1:40 pm

    I think it’s wonderful how half of these amazing men are Nigerian, makes me so proud of my people. Good list but I would most definitely have Adewale Agbaje much higher on the list. The man is simply amazing.

  • BT says:

  • ADM says:

    November 15th, 2007 at 5:53 pm

    The men were fine, but Boris should not have been No. 1. I feel he was only picked for the top spot because he doesn’t look like what most people define as ‘characteristically’ African. Besides, some of the best looking men on the continent are in the country of Tanzania. In my opinion anyway.

  • Sandra says:

    MOST OF THESE MEN ARE NOT AFRICAN AT ALL. MOSTLY NONE. WE NEED REAL AFRICANS LIKE DJIMON. WE WANT PEOPLE WHO WERE EITHER BORN OR RIASED IN AFRICA. SOME OF THESE MEN DON’T CONSIDER THEMSELVES AS AFRICANS. WHERE IS RAMSEY NOAH OR EMEKA IKE? THOSE ARE THE REAL AFRICANS WHO SHIT ABOUT OUR CULTURE. TEST ANY OF THESE MEN ON THE AFRICAN CULTURE AND THEY WILL ANSWER. I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN AFRICAN LIST. SORRY BUT I DON’T FIND ANY AFRICANS IN HERE

  • africano says:

    January 27th, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    GOSH, WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO CHOSED THIS MEN? ARE THEY REALLY AWARE THAT MOST OF THSES MEN DON’T CONSIDER THEMSELVES AFRICANS LOOOOOOOOOOOL THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS. JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE AFRICAN PARENTS DOES NOT MAKE THEM AFRICAN. YOU ARE AFRICAN IF YOU ARE EITHER BORN OR GREW UP IN AFRICA. I AM A PROUD AFRICAN FROM CAMEROUN AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT MOST OF THESE MEN DON’T ABIDE WITH “AFRICAN”. WHERE ARE THE REAL AFRICANS LIKE DJIMON AND RAMSEY NOAH???

  • africano says:

    January 27th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    OKAY SORRY, BUT I JUST SAW DJIMON. HE IS THE ONLY AFRICAN ON THE LIST LOL. ANYWAYS, THE SAME GOES FOR THE WOMEN. HOW CAN YOU PUT IN THANDIE NEWTON? THAT WOMAN HATES AFRICA LIKE SHIT AND HAS NEVER BEEN TO ZAMBIA AND YET YOU FEATURE HER IN IT. WHY NOT PUT REAL AFRICANS LIKE AGBANI AND OMOTOLA AND NAYO? MOST OF THE WOMEN ON THE LIST ALSO ARE NOT AFRICANS AND WILL NOT BE CONTENT IF YOU REFER THEM AS AFRICANS. WE AFRICANS ARE PROUD TO BE AFRICANS, BUT SOME AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE NEVER CONTENT TO BEING AFRICANS THE WORST IS AFRO-BRAZILIANS. NEST TIME YOU MAKE A LIST LIKE THIS, TRY PUTTING SOME REAL AFRICANS WHO HAVE AT LEAST GROWN IN AFRICA. THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WE CAN RELATE TO. I CAN BET YOPU THAT MANY OF THESE PEOPLE DON’T CONSIDER THEMSELVES AS AFRICANS. BORN OR BREED AFRICANS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE AIMING AT

    Africano, Thandie was born in Zambia and raised between the UK and Zambia. Her mother is from Zimbabwe so I’m sure she’s been there too.

    Djimon spent some of his childhood in the west too.

    Adewale is fluent in Yoruba.

    It’s called “Diaspora Interactive Media Corp” for a reason. I was raised between the two continents. Does the fact that I didn’t spend 100% of my childhood at home mean I’m any less African? Do you have to have a non-Western accent to count? All these people are African in my view. I spent about 50% of my childhood at home. My English is in the same accent as the rest of the people on the east coast. I speak my native language fluently and in the appropriate accent.

    gorgeous black women

  • africano says:

    February 12th, 2008 at 5:56 pm

    Gorgeous Black women. Thanks for the comment. I guess I was a bit narrow minded. but next time they should try putting people like Emeka Ike, Ramsey Noah, Omotola,Kaone. People that african people can at least RELATE to, Some of them on the list are more americanized that africanized. (If it was my list, i will put people like Nadia Buari , Van Vicker), at least you get my idea.

    P.S I LOVE YOUR BLOG. very beautiful. At least, that blog will add to my internet site searches

  • jones says:

    Next time you make a list like this, please provide us with real african men and women. What does sade know about africa. Try to search for women from french speaking african countries and portuguese speaking african countries also. The list has more americanized people than african. Please provide us with real africans.

  • Kim says:

    March 18th, 2008 at 7:15 am

    What is Boris Kodjoe doing on that list. Tha fact that his dad is Ghanaian doesn’t make him the least bid African. Boris grew up with his white German mum in Germany > Please, I am a Ghanaian girl and this should be an insult.

    The only True Africans here are Djimon, Adewale and sello maake. The rest of the men are not Africans.

    Make a new list of Africans who live in Africa and not the diaspora

    This is a stupid list and I order Jamationline to make a new one because most of them are really not Africans

    It is rather funny how people are complaining about who is and isn’t African when some of you have “Americanized” or Western names and speak European languages.
    If you are Christian or Muslim, you DEFINITELY can’t speak because you all KNOW that your ancestors didn’t practice those new religions. Colonization/EUROPEANIZATION/ARABIZATION made African countries less African if you want to get to the real deal of what is “African”.
    Well anyways, those people are handsome and pretty! If you all want “real” African people’s pictures posted, use your own faces and post up your pictures!

    When did we start becoming rascist to our own people?
    If this people won awards, I’m sure Arficano will be the ifrst person to scream ‘Woohoo, our African people are representing!’ yet they are not Arfican enought to make the list?
    People like you resnt the white man, resent the black man in the west, resent black men from countries other than yours, and end up resenting yoursleves.
    With all due respect, keep your opinion to yourself,ok? And let the rest of us celebrate success.

    Nigerians are all ranting and raving on having got the most handsome men! What do you expect of a country with a population of 6 countries in one? In reality what is the percentage of handsome men vs the whole population? Am a kenyan girl and have seen a number of naijas since they’ve spilled allover the continent. What they got is a really feel good attitude,mistakenly labelled charisma, which obviously draws the weaker ones and especially women.They are the charismatic preachers who have got so many bewitched into lies , falsehoods and the worship of humans. Better tone it down a bit my brodos.

    All the bickering about who is or isn’t a “real” African is a prime example of the problems with black people today. I love my chocolate people, Africans, Afro-Caribbean, African American alike, but sometimes we discriminate against ourselves and act like crabs in a barrel, pushing each other down to get to the top or to be in the spotlight.

    Yes, I am an American, and I know there are Africans that feel I don’t have a right to speak on it, but as a people, there is a vast disconnect between within our people that keeps us down.

    I have traveled the world (several African countries) and was raised most of my life outside of the US, but I was born here and have since moved back in my adult life. It doesn’t make me any less American or any less “black”, and most places I travel, people do ask me, “what part of Africa are you from?” Still, no one can tell me I’m not American just because I wasn’t raised here, and at the same rate, I celebrate my African heritage. Take Marcus Samuelsson or Kenna Zemedkun… I would never say they are any less African because of where they live or where they were raised.

    Sorry this just drives me nuts.

    We all are a beautiful and powerful people. <3

    Have u guys heard the song( dont get where u come from by Peter Tosh). Well i think u guys all need to listen to that song. I may not know where i come from africa and born and raised in america, but in america i am an african american female who is 17. people stop hating it does not matter where u come from if u skin is black and your hair is nappy u r an african, if ur nose is wide and ur lips juicy u r a african. Even though these people got seperated from the actual continent Africa does not mean they r not african or afrikaan which ever way u wanna spell it. U are a african. so who cares obviously the men in africa who hating on there fellow african brothers beauty. If u wanna make a list make a list of ur own, but remember this was some personally opinion and not urs, but all these men are fine as hell make u wanna lick ur lips, make ur jaw drop, and make u wonder off in lala land, especially djimon hounsou :D
