[VIDEO] She is from West Africa and He is from East Africa, his mom does not approve but sparks fly


Last week, the CBC posted a clip from the finale of their airport-based television show Hello Goodbye Canada.

The video shared the story of Mary and Lionel, two young lovers from opposite sides of the African continent— Mary from West Africa and Lionel from East Africa.

Sadly, Mary and Lionel’s story is one that some of us are all too familiar with.
