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; during a youth workshop, I 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 was never more urgent & evident than during the Covid-19 lockdowns where digital media & entertainment 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.
I believe that by having a central digital location;
New talent, emerging ministers & leaders from across the African diaspora can get to be nurtured, trained & network with like-minded individuals for effective Kingdom advancement. It will also be a platform for sharing wholesome content to the (16 to 35) year old demographic.
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.
There is already a web designer, a couple of writers/interviewers and a few urban artists/ministers that are excited to be a part of the initial stage of the vision.
Your kind contribution of USD 10, 20, 50 or more will go towards helping us kickstart this noble initiative. God bless!
