Soon, like styles from the past, the tailcoat was replaced by the dinner jacket entirely. The jazz age had begun. A new generation of men was rebelling against the aging traditions of their fathers. They were drinking, partying and womanizing like never before. As their fathers sipped brandy in the sitting room and talked about how good things used to be, these rebels were spending their free time in the company of friends and dancing the night away to the new music. During the 1960s and 1970s Brazil experienced economic growth from agricultural modernization and, by the early 1980s, agricultural production had increased to the extent that Brazil had become the fourth largest food exporter in the world.

Bearing this fact in mind, we find it useful to follow Pio Sirimu and Ngugi Wa Thiong”s seminal example in using the term “orature” to denote poems, plays, stories, etc., in oral form, and in reserving the term “literature” for the same things in their written forms. Because “obloquy” has been routinely heaped upon African orature by Eurocentric critics critics of African literature, we have, in discussing African literature, found it necessary to examine at some length the qualities of African orature. furthermore, African orature is important to this enterprise of decolonizing African literature, for the important reason that it is the incontestable reservoir of the values, sensibilities, aesthetics, and achievements of traditional African thought and imagination outside the plastic arts. We are presently engaged and engrossed in imbibing, aping and executing in both speech and action all that is European or American, that we really do not have time to look into our history, culture, traditions and so forth to begin to talk about nation-building, once we understood what we need to know, study and live from our own and selves and culture. It is either we do as we have been made up to be thus far-that we need to begin to recognize, study and concretely know our cultures, traditions, customs, music, dances, traditional dresses and so forth before we can even countenance the unknown and unclear freedom and autonomy that so many tout, and yet that is still has not been realized nor achieved by the majority of Africans in Mzantsi-to date. 1935 The Transvaal Inter-Race Soccer Board is formed by Africans, Indians, and Suzman Cup, the first official inter-racial tournament between Africans, Coloureds, and Indians, is established.

In fact, Black people seeking a scientific approach to the problems afflicting and facing African people, and Africans must begin acting and being Historians, scientists, observing their situation, recording their own data and following up with their own analysis of the their observations, experience and data. Their own analysis will then inform them of what it is that they, as Africans people, need to do to achieve their goal objectives.
As we have discussed above, the Nguni people have populated the areas of South Africa earlier than has been suspected, and their culture, no matter how this has been spun by historians and detractors of African culture, customs, traditions and practices are the same and have been so as far as the literature on this subject can reach into antiquity.

It is also known that about a hundred years ago that pentatonic multipart structures in traditional south African choral music derived from the harmonics of stretched strings in instrumental playing.

People who are ahistorical, who have little knowledge of history, are people who are more gullible, more easily adapted to the capitalist machine than people who are historically knowledgeable. History can become a basis for self-criticism, a basis for self-understanding, and more importantly, the basis for the understanding of the motives and the psychology of others. Beyonce is a Type 3.
