My African soul-mate is a chill, warm black guy worthy of praise.
Feruzi joined my previous company’s office in Dar el Salaam in 2005. He was looking at leaving our office in Tanzania when I decided I should freeze his ass off up in the cold Land of Santa. And so I imported an African Prince to the snowy north. It took some time for him to take off his jacket and hat while sitting inside in our office. And after several months, we managed to make a half-Norwegian out of this tech savvy Tanzanian.
Son of a King in the northern part of the country, raised as a prince with both his feet planted firmly on the ground. Feruzi is one of the most amazingly no-stress, no-fuss, chill people I’ve ever met. Even at his wedding he was cool, calm and collected. I had the pleasure to attend his second wedding party – not the big one with thousands of guests, but the “small” party with only 500 or so.
Feruzi is a caring person engaging in idealistic causes for his people – like making sure Firefox got translated to Swahili. If you’re ever stressed out, for any reason in life, call Feruzi. He’ll chill you.
