If you have not been reading the Be Afrika Magazine, I don’t know what you have been doing. Looking for something fresh in the creative space? here comes Be Afrika.
Watch out for monthly issues and you will fall in love with the creative industry. From fashion, style, Beauty, music and more. The magazine is out for a hunt and support of African creatives and also looks at in depth issue in the industry.
Before I get to the February issue, did you miss the Jan issue? I got you. January was The Festival issue. What brings Africans together more than a festival, right? The issue touched on African Nouveau festival and the looks you can shop. The cover story features rapper Steph Kapela, sing/songwriters Wanja Wahoro, Emma Cheruto, PHY, and Dj /producer Suraj.
The creative segment features one of Nairobi’s finest Co-Be Nairobi. Also La Jon, Nallah B. Sangare and Shiro of Aunty Boss.
The issue also toured areas of experimental marketing, gov’t role & impact on the creative industry, creative entrepreneurship and technology.
My favourite segments were ‘The Artist’ Nellah B. Sengare because I love her work and think she is amazing; Afro Lense Pekat Photography, the photography is bomb and of course the experimental marketing where the magazine looks into why brands turn to artists for marketing partnerships.
For the Feb issue I would hate give too much away. It’s all about collaboration with creatives. Creatives who have a similar mind set but different skills/experience and you get to learn how that can be beneficial for you and your brand. No spoilers for this one, how about you go and sample it yourself?
Here is a teaser.
