AfroFunk, (Fresh, Urban N Kingdom) is an initiative that aims to redefine the narrative in Africa's Youth; music & hiphop culture to be one that's Creative, uplifting & God glorifying.
My name is Jefro Katai & for the past 15 years; I have been actively involved in Kenya's youth, music & hiphop culture through various roles.
I have had the honour to have pastored, mentored artists, organised local & international music events and by God's grace played a part in shaping the Youth's Gospel music narrative through initiatives like Madlove Lounge.
In 2021; my team & I, have identified a huge need to create an online platform that will collect digital content from credible Christian artists & urban influencers from across the African Continent. That's what has birthed the #AfroFunk idea.
The need has never been more urgent & evident than during the Covid-19 lockdowns where digital media & entertainment has played a major role towards either affirming or destroying the youth's true Identity.
Generation Y are heavily influenced by the many voices that they interact with daily in social media pages more than the 2 hrs of their Church's "Sunday's sermon".
I believe that by having a central digital location;
New talent, emerging ministers & leaders from across Africa can get to be nurtured, trained & network with like-minded individuals for effective Kingdom advancement.
We have a target of raising 1150 USD that will go towards our 1st phase of creating the website and facilitating the initial team of content creators.
Your kind contribution of USD 5, 10 or more will go towards helping us kickstart this noble initiative.
