Africa is a vast continent with enormous natural resources and diverse cultures. This is just the tip of the iceberg and all too often the view from outside of the continent is significantly different from the reality on the ground. We believe that Africa is currently viewed through the lens of the media and the movie industry. Our aim is to remove the filtered lens and share the view from the experts on the ground.

I (Samuel Erskine) grew up in Ghana and had an Apple computer back in the early 80s. Imagine life in technology 40 years later. Do you think time stood still in Africa?

Kazeem was born and lives in Nigeria. He is an entrepeneur educating the next generation of tech talents as well as show-casing the advances in technology all over the world. We aim to bring you the current voices, faces and stories of Africans today as the experts of their own continent.
