“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” 
― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Over the years we have done a brilliant job at bringing a balanced representation of Africa and Africans to our global audiences. We utilize creative freedom, forward-thinking and artistic expression to tell stories, to create challenging and engaging dialogues for Africans by Africans.


Afrokanist Magazine is a business, youth and culture-focused publication dedicated to representing and celebrating Black and Africans.



Past Issues

"The attention given to mental health disorders in Nigeria is at best, fleeting; the level of awareness of the Nigerian public on mental health issues is also understandably poor, and the misconceptions regarding mental health have continued to flourish."


Mind Your Mind campaign was launched on the 18th of November 2017, followed by four successful events, focused on:

The correlation of religion, spirituality and mental illness within African communities.

Eating your way to mental wellness. 

Depression and Healing Strategies.

Black men and depression.



Work with us

We are currently working on our next project, which is focused on raising awareness, fighting stereotypes and misconception about depression in Africa, but starting with Nigeria. (more information will be disclosed closer to the time)
