It is created in 2001, the English version has 5000,000articles, the French version have only 1million articles, it has 2085 languages. But we do not have it in the local language in Cameroon. It is the most visited in the world, it is a place to be when you need information, or to be known. We need to create content in Africa, by African, most content are created by tourist.
Who can talk about your language, culture, eating habit, dressing style better than you.
