Studio BLVCK (pronounced “black”) is a content company and community committed to celebrating the untold stories of African artists, makers and all-round creatives. They focus on beginnings, the present and the future wrapped in the context of African culture, youth, and environment, through short features, long-form interviews, and podcasts.
Adetunji talks about the challenges the continent has, most notably around inept leadership. There are challenges around income inequality and infrastructure but while there are real challenges, there is a generation of young Africans who see the world very differently to older generations of leaders and are putting more emphasis on the arts and African creativity.
Take a listen to his excellent new podcast Bantu and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
This is just an absolutely fascinating conversation concerning about all things African creativity. There is no one better placed to tell us this story.
If you are remotely interested in the African creative landscape and what that might mean for your business then you will love this conversation.
