Across social media platforms, AfricanCelebs hits daily a stunning figure rounding up to 1.4 million followers.
With 80% of the figure on Facebook alone, the platform has created a giant niche for itself with trendy updates on the continent’s entertainment news.
Established in 2014, it has over the years motivated its focus on people, brands, and events that are positively impacting the world and Africa’s image.
Its central focus has been to bridge the gap between Africa and Africans in the diaspora. The brand’s positive vibes are reflected in its engagements with their followers across social media platforms, and it has managed to build an incredibly strong reputation that they find crucial.
In a close up interview with Oral Ofori of TheAfricanDream, who was recently appointed Head Customer Relations Officer for the Embassy of Ghana in Washington, DC in the United States, the brand explains the type of great contents the social media team are driving in this age of digital journalism, to give an appealing boost for the African image globally.
“It is meant to uplift the image of Africa and her children all around the globe,” said Tina Brown, Founder of AfricanCelebs, emphasising that the platform has been “quietly delighting audiences with its content.”
Tina mentioned a quote to buttress her point from Bose Ogulu (manager & mother to Burna Boy – the African superstar and Grammy winner):
“Every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you were anything else”
Similarly, AfricanCelebs from name to dedication have moved audiences from around the world to cheer, laugh, and celebrate all peoples of African descent.
It runs a magazine that has become the #1 platform on Facebook with an additional 1 million visitors hitting the company’s page monthly.
“We are proud of the growth that we’ve seen. Becoming the biggest page for African Celebrities has been a delightful journey, we were fist to start celebrating our icons and they showed us love back with exclusive content that their fans could only find through our pages,” said Tina to Oral Ofori.
