Fufu Gang Ladies T-shirt
We all know fufu is an African meal enjoyed in countries like Ghana, Nigeria and Congo. However in popular culture Fufu has been used sadly by other people of African descent in insulting terms.

I got this African chick with Eddie Murphy on her skull
She like: "Jigga Man, why you treat me like animal?"
I'm like: "excuse me Ms. Fufu, but when I met your ass
You was dead broke and naked, and now you want half"
The lyrics above were in reference to 80s comedian Eddie Murphy’s impersonation of his African girlfriend “Umfufu” in the celebrated Eddie Murphy Raw routine.
10 years ago kids of African descent would swear they were not African and had never eating fufu etc. But before Afro beats was hip and being African was cool, in 2009 a group of diverse Africans from around the world created the #fufugang to express what they loved about fufu and Africa in the quest to our African stories. The hastag and name has evolved into many positive things.
Fufu Gang = Lover of Africa = Being proud of Africa
