Facebook Africa launches ‘Made in Africa, Loved by the World’ ahead of Africa Day

Facebook has announced the launch of its global campaign named “Made by Africa, Loved by the World” as part of its celebration of “Africa Day” on May 25th.

The campaign features a series of short films that tell the stories of eight phenomenal creatives and small business owners from around the continent who are breaking ground across the world.

The films show how African creatives and companies from Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, and Gabon have achieved global success.

This includes South African fashion designer Laduma Ngxokolo, whose clothing brand ‘Maxhosa’ has been worn by international celebrities such as Beyonce and Alicia Keys, and whose designs were recently featured in the film ‘Coming to America 2′.

Sauti Sol, a Kenyan collaborative Afro-pop music group that has earned international recognition with awards and shows in Europe and the United States, and Mark Angel, a Nigerian comedian with over 15 million global Facebook followers, are also featured.

The series aims to highlight, heroize, and honor the people who are making an impact on Africa and the rest of the world through their music, arts, and crafts.
