How to pass state from context

Hi,

I’m trying to pass a state via context, to use it in another component.

export const DataContext = React.createContext();

export class DataProvider extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    {console.log(this.props.continent)}
    this.state = {
      continent: this.props.continent,
    };

  }

  updateState() {
    this.setState = {
      continent: this.props.continent,
    };

  }

  render() {
    return (
      <DataContext.Provider value={{ state: this.state }}>
        {this.props.children}
      </DataContext.Provider>
    );
  }

Here, the consol.log logs the correct

However, I do pass this to one other component, where I’d like to use this state.

 static contextType = DataContext;

  componentDidMount() {
      console.log(this.context)
  }

In this component, the state is undefined. It is NOT undefined if I specify the state in the constructor for the context, such as:

  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    {console.log(this.props.continent)}
    this.state = {
      continent: "ABC",
    };

Do anyone have any idea about what I’m doing wrong?
I’ve wrapped the component with my context in App.
Everything works, except, that the state becomes undefined as soon as it’s a variable.

Edit:
It may have to do with the component, which passes the prop in the beginning never gets called when I enter the next component.

I’m trying to pass a string of a continent. Just doing this:

       <DataProvider continent={["Africa"]} />
