About

there is an old saying - "we all die with our stories inside us". with aKoma that should not apply to you

Amplify is one of aKoma's content initiatives that was developed to further the company's mission to "boldly astonish, delight and engage the world about Africa and its people, by relentlessly delivering stories that capture the essential vibe of the continent, showcasing amazing storytelling talent, and doing it better than anyone else."

founded by CNN alums Zain Verjee and Chidi Afulezi, aKoma has a simple and clear goal - to make Africa come alive. aKoma is a content and storytelling platform built with a fundamental question - who do we want African creators to be, and how do we help them thrive?

aKoma is not just a content platform, it is a context platform for Africa
