Mabelle Prior says as a social-cultural critique (a.k.a. agent provocateur), she had to put her strong opinions in a handbook that documents some of her thoughts about the idiosyncrasies of Africans. The lives and lies we live. The vagaries of their unique poverty that stretches into billions of dollars. Their worn habits dying for an updated version. She mirrors their fears. She dissects their hypocrisies. She pokes at their beliefs that care for them so much they rid them of every possibility to be exceptional.
We asked Mabelle Prior a few questions, like Who are your role models? My parents: my Mum Mrs. Irene Asase Dagadzi, founder of Doctor Asase Memorial Children’s Home, and my Dad Doctor Felix Dagadzi of blessed memories who was the Head of Medecin Scolaire in Togo. They remain my everlasting models. And of course, my grandma Adadzawa Dede Felicia who was always there for us when my parents were working hard to provide our needs.

What inspires you? Apart from my family, my amazing sisters Serwah, Dorcas, Shine, and their family, who are amazing people with beautiful hearts. They love helping people. Too many people are suffering in the world because of hunger, sickness, and poverty, While others have everything and living extremely grand lives. There are enough resources to give a healthy living for everyone on earth. It shocks me that there is still so much suffering on earth. So yes, no other person inspires me apart from my family and myself.
