Born in China, raised in Ghana, Zhao Huiling is part of a new generation of young social media storytellers who aims to tell a very different China-Africa story than what you see in traditional media.

Huiling joins Eric & Cobus to talk about her new video blog or vlog, where she shares her personal stories about Africa to her followers on Chinese social media.

Join the discussion. What do you think of the stories that vloggers like Huiling are producing about Africa? Do you think social media content will have an impact on the broader China-Africa narratives? Let us know what you think.
