"The best place to get that Wakanda feeling" is the campus of the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, the Associate Press said this week.
It beats out Lesotho, the Victoria Falls – and the rest of the African continent – as a smart, cool, tech-savvy vision of Africa.
The opinion has been spread across a good chunk of the English-speaking world.
There is probably no better place in the real world to "get that Wakanda feeling" than the campus of the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, the Associated Press said this week.
"To be surrounded by smart, opinionated, articulate students, fashionably dressed in colorful, sharp clothes, full of hope and plans for themselves, their country and their continent is to feel the heart of the Afro-optimism of 'Black Panther'," wrote the American news agency's Andrew Meldrum.
Johannesburg as a whole also got an honourable mention as a Wakanda proxy; "a dynamic, cosmopolitan African city, full of commerce, high-rise architecture and nightlife that is redolent of Wakanda," wrote Meldrum.
