African people have been in existence for over 1,000,000 years already, whilst the current stock of Asians and Europeans appear around 100 - 200 thousand years ago.

At a certain point in time, everyone living on planet Earth was either black[sic], brown or bronze and was residence in the regions of the world that we now refer to as Africa.

History is a true account of events, an as such African history has been studied to a Tee, and majority of the historians have it that:

(a) Africa is the region of the world where humanity begins.

(b) We ought to be thankful to our ancestors for not jumping off a cliff and putting an end to humanity as we know it.

(c) The specific periods when some of our ancestors took part in their various explorational journies to the other continents.

For instance, by using low-tech scientific apparatus are able to determine when the original inhabitants of Asia and Australasians left the continent, account for a fairly accurate time frame, and identify with their state of mind at the time.

(d) More than 50% of the entire history of the world occurs within the regions we all now call Africa.

If you understand yoruba ,you will know Water in the context stands for black people, there's no life without water,there's no humanity without black people.
