The Okayafrica x Daniel Ting Chong Collection Lookbook

Okayafrica's collaboration with Daniel Ting Chong draws inspiration from African national flags to create a singular African identity.

Today, we’re excited to launch our collaboration with renowned South African artist and designer Daniel Ting Chong. A series of multicoloured graphics on t-shirts, a crew neck sweater, a headscarf and a tote bag, the collection draws its inspiration from various African national flags to create a singular African identity.


“National flags are often used as a beacon of hope, and a symbol of what a country stands for. A flag as a visual representation of its people–and to distinguish it from other nations. By having the same flag, Africa can have a common symbol to bring us closer together–at home or abroad,” says Daniel.

The collection is available exclusively at Okayafrica's pop-up space at 70 Juta Street in Braamfontein, Johannesburg between the 29th of September and the 8th of October.

Our lookbook was shot by South African filmmaker and photographer Lenzo.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
