In Africa, there are diverse cultures due to the many different ethnic groups spread across the country. The many languages, art, music, oral literature and the different religions they practice differentiate each ethnic group. The reason why there are many ethnic groups is because in the 7th-century people from different parts of the world came and settled in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Even though many different cultures came together, they stayed true to the African culture and carry out African customs still.
