In early mid-September, 17 year old @mxdkays used social media platform, Twitter, to make the following statement:


Several days later, she followed up with hashtag, #EastOnfleek, to highlight East Africa’s diverse people and culture.


Inspired another 17 year old @saradmahmoud and her #TheHabibatiTag, the #EastOnFleek hashtag took off, creating waves through out the online African community, even becoming a trending topic. Salute the young, donkoro, teen because as Africans we need to continue celebrating, educating and controlling the narrative of the image of our people. So please follow @mxdkays and the #EastonFleek movement at @EastOnFleek1.
