Every day hundreds of African migrants cross the Atlantic Ocean to the Canary Islands in search of the so-called 'better life'. Thousands more are crossing into Malta and Italy, while a lot more attempt to make the journey through the Desert of Sahara. This journey that is no more no less than a New Slavery System is taking the lives of Africans at a much faster rate than even the old chain-bounded slavery system. It is quite unfortunate, totally shameful and disgraceful that a continent like Africa, so richly endowed with both human and natural resources, has now become the parasites of the 21st century. It is indeed a curse on the continent that African youth now prefer to pay into foreign slavery, rather than living in freedom and dignity. The time is now for us to seek atonement; the time is now for us to regain back ourselves and come back to our senses; the time is now for us to shine the light of knowledge into the shadows and darkness of ignorance; the time is now to stand-up as free Africans rather than been enslaved by foreign currencies. It is time for a change! It is time to write history once again as we break the chains and shackles of this new slavery system - which is the whole essence of this book.

Joseph Aigboje Etute was born in Lagos, just after the Nigerian Civil war and well after the old slavery system was abolished and officially outlawed. As a free and proud African, I attended Santa Maria Private School, Arch-Bishop Aggey Memorial Secondary School, and then the University of Lagos where I obtained my B.Sc. and MBA degrees. I willingly and stupidly paid my way into the New Slavery System in 1994, trading my African dignity for foreign currencies. While many died on this slave journey, I dont consider myself any better as I also suffered a secondary death of racism, discrimination, humiliation, dehumanisation, legislative frustrations and life wasting prison sentences. Every AFS has his or her story to tell, just like mine in this book, but the truth is that none can really put it all into writing as there are some experiences that are just inexplicable or better still, left only to the memory of the concerned AFS.
