About OkayAfrica

OkayAfrica is the most influential digital destination bridging African art, music, style, politics, and more. OkayAfrica’s mission is to build a highly engaged community of empowered black people globally by connecting a global audience to African culture and its diaspora through authentic content and immersive experiences.

Launched in 2010 as a sister site to Questlove’s Okayplayer, OkayAfrica believes in the power of using storytelling to bridge cultures and challenge stereotypes. Through our compelling articles, interviews, videos, and events, we strive to provide a fresh and authentic perspective on Africa, highlighting its rich heritage and contemporary innovations.

With more than half the population in many African nations under the age of 25, Africa is currently undergoing an explosion of vibrant new music, fashion, art, and political expression. OkayAfrica is the multi-faceted hub capturing the spirit of this unprecedented boom in youth culture, focusing on emerging and progressive Afrobeats and amapiano artists, blending traditional aesthetics with a futurist lifestyle.
