Why is African cuisine so non existant on UK shelves? The struggles of running a Ghanaian food stall

What’s wrong with this picture?

It’s taken from my local Morrison’s “foods of the world” isle. (I always roll my eyes at how supermarkets name these isles “foods of the world” as if the food in the other isles don’t come from the “world” - but that’s another blog post).

The shelf section…

The “Plat Eye” or “Plate Eye” is a mythical being from Gullah folklore. This image, from a mid 19th century print, shows one popular image of the creature. Others portray the being as a large dog with fiery eyes. The Gullah are the descendants of slaves, largely from western Africa. These individuals were brought forcefully to the New World because of their skill in cultivating rice. Unlike the highly supervised slave economies of the upper South, these tidewater communities worked under the task system, being assigned a particular swampy area of rice-growing land to work under the hot South Carolina sun, and being allowed to rest once it was tended. This allowed a new culture to emerge, which still exists in the lowlands and barrier islands of the coast to this day. The version of the Plat Eye depicted in this image is something similar to a human being. Its eyes, however, are as large as dinner plates, completely covering the face. According to Gullah tradition, the Plat Eye lives among tree branches, seizing victims who are wandering through the tideland forests late at night. Those targeted by the Plat Eye are never seen again.
The Plat Eye is sometimes portrayed as a stalker, following its victims and doing nothing.  Sometimes, it can drive someone to madness.  In other mythologies, the Plat Eye is a simple killer.

ATTO SECONDO/Scena seconda

TURANDOT
O Principi,
che a lunghe carovane
d’ogni parte del mondo
qui venite a gettar la vostra sorte,
io vendico su voi
quella purezza, quel grido
e quella morte!
Mai nessun m’avrà!
L’orror di chi l’uccise
vivo nel cor mi sta!
No, no! Mai nessun m’avrà!
Ah, rinasce in me l’orgoglio
di tanta purità!
Straniero! non tentar la fortuna!
Gli enigmi sono tre,
la morte è una!

TURANDOT
O you Princess,
with your long caravans
from every part of the world,
who come here to try your fate,
in you I avenge
that purity, that cry,
and that death!
No one will ever posses me!
The horror of her assassin
is still vivid in my heart!
No, no one will ever possess me!
Ah, in me is reborn the pride
of such purity!
Stranger, do not tempt Fate!
The enigmas are three,
but death is one!
