I think that you should take a fresh start by doing the following:
1. Create a new user name for yourself.
2. Do a lot (I mean very many) small edits on many different articles, and only change little details one at a time.
3. Avoid copying large amounts of text to avoid any copyvio issues.
4. In about 6 months time, your reputation will be solidly established as a reliable Wikipedia contributor.
5. In six months time, you can return little by little to improving the articles that have created the situation we are in right now.

OK, I know that this is easier said than done, but ALL the articles about Africa need improving, and what is better for us in the long term? By doing a lot of small edits, the global quality will improve and you will gain a lot of very usefull experience in dealing with what are basically a bunch of american or british editors.

And, by the way, once you have established a new ID, you can ask to have your old account merged with the new one. But once you have created this new account, you should not log in with the old one. We do not want anyone accusing you of sock-puppetry.

@Enock. Nope I've not tried defending myself. I guess you might ask, "Why?" Don't ask that yet! ;)

Rex, Sorry to see you blocked.

By the way did you try defending yourself in recent copyvio raised against you? And what was the outcome?

If we can address the cause of concern about the perceived copyright issues and address them then I think it should be quite simple to get it reverted.  

What are the copyright concerns that Wizardman has?
