The awareness level of contemporary African scholars of the inescapability of the truly African renaissance, on what is truly African, has begun to gain cogency among thinkers of different backgrounds within and beyond the shores of the continent. This renaissance in all spheres of life of Africans, albeit for the world to know that Africanness is not identical with dullness of the intellect, rediscovers and repositions the new Africa as one that is mentally liberated from the iticarcerotive influences of western thought system. This revival portends a total and absolute abandonment of Africa's dependency on foreign ideologies for a conspicuous and overt return to original system which, ultimately, will orchestrate and showcase their primordial intellectual excellence, formerly in form of native wit, for which Africans were known. This paper examines, inter alia, the commitment of productive African intellectuals using African projects, in the spirit of 'metanoia' to return to things that are natively African, to secure equal platform for intellectual excellence in science, technology and inventions. In this way the relevance of Africa to global welfare will not be placed on bargain table.
