Proudly African perspectives.
The AFROBLUSH Podcast is an audio series exploring African culture and lifestyle. Each episode is a personal and unique journey into the lives of African communities around the world and the impact of culture in shaping our ideals, identity and way of life.
Made in Africa.
The Meet the Makers Podcast is a collection of inspiring interviews and stories featuring Africa’s thought leaders, change makers and entrepreneurs. This is more than a podcast, it’s a movement of people, changing the way we think and act about making it in Africa.
Are you a change maker?
Are you up to something amazing or know someone who is? We would love to hear from you, fill the form and we’ll be in touch.
Our stories matter.
I’m Louisa Olafuyi, the creator of AFROBLUSH, a media platform for sharing fresh perspectives on contemporary Pan-African culture and lifestyle. I started AFROBLUSH in 2012 as an outlet for sharing my experiences as a Ugandan born Brit.
I realised there’s a huge gap between the lived and perceived experiences of people of African heritage, in Africa and abroad. I began AFROBLUSH to share my own stories, and those of others, to show just how vibrant and nuanced our cultures are.
AFROBLUSH aims to give African voices a seat at the table and an opportunity for us to lean in and talk about topics that affect, interest and inspire us. Read more
This spring I spent a short few days back home in Uganda. It's becoming common that when I arrive at Entebbe, I bypass buzzing Kampala and hit the highway towards the South West of the region to a town called Mbarara, the town of my family and ancestors.
My husband and I spent a few days in Dubai on our way to Uganda. It’s a stunning and opulent city, which is what a lot of people travel here to see. However, I tried to step away from all the shiny things and spend some time in the markets, meeting people and understanding their culture.

My first visit to Ibadan, Nigeria, and also my first time as a guest at a Nigerian wedding, in Nigeria. This trip was so much fun, I loved having a custom outfit made and think I wore my gele pretty well! We travelled from Lagos to Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.
Beautiful day in Madrid working on a project for Ford Motors.
