There are over 60 different tribes in South Sudan, each with their own unique facial features, heights, skin tones, languages, hair types, traditions and much more. With such diversity, I find it shocking that much of the world- including South Sudanese themselves- subscribe to the belief that South Sudanese look only one way.
The music industry is one filled with so many characters and some will drain you: the Negative Nancy who thinks that no one will ever make it and that the industry sucks, the two-faced shadows that smile to your face but hope you fail, and the "helpless" who use sad sob stories to get you to spend all of your emotional resources on them without return... yeah, there are plenty of them.
