The first mosque to be built in Africa is the Mosque of the Companions in Massawa, Eritrea, which was built in the 620s-630s.

The mosque is believed to have been built by companions of Prophet Muhammad, who went there to flee persecution by people in the Hejazi city of Mecca.

In other news, Chefchaouen, Morocco, is regarded as the bluest city in the world. The city is a popular tourist destination because of its proximity to Tangier and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.

It is this beautiful atmosphere of the town that makes Chefchaouen very attractive to visitors.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that at just 14 years of age, Dorothy Jean Tillman of Chicago became a perfect example of black excellence after she obtained her graduate degree from Unity College in the United States.

Through distant learning, the teen prodigy grabbed her master’s degree in sustainable science and environmental planning.

According to a report by becauseofthemwecan.com, at just 8 months old she began talking, by four she was completing math problems and by nine she was starting high school.

Tillman has always loved learning and once she finished high school, she figured she should pursue her associate's degree which worked in her favour since many of the credits counted towards her bachelors.

She just kept going and at the age of 12, she earned her bachelor’s degree in humanities from Excelsior College.

Before that, Tillman earned her associate’s degree in psychology from the College of Lake County at the age of 10.

Tillman plans to find ways to give back to other young people looking to pursue a career in STEM.

Addressing her admirable accomplishment, she is quoted as saying that she has ‘‘been working on STEM labs for kids because I really want to go into the STEM-related field and work with kids.’’
