Get the latest African people news from Africa and find out who is in and who is out across the continent with the Top10 Lifestyle news distributed weekly to your inbox.

African people are unique in that they make their home on a continent of more than a billion other people. To rise from the crowd and stand out among your peers requires tremendous energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and intelligence.

We want you to be smart about the people who are making their mark on the continent. We agree with this quote from Jomo Kenyatta – “Our children may learn about the heroes of the past. Our task is to make ourselves the architects of the future.”

Our goal is to help you stay smart about what’s happening in Africa so that you can form factual opinions rather than trust only what you see in western outlets about the continent. We work to provide you with the information you need to be smart about Africa.

We deliver lifestyle news in multiple formats including photos, infographics, exclusive stories, interviews, video stories, audio podcasts, and traditional articles from writers and contributors across the continent.
