About Us


AfricaLive is a media platform dedicated to telling African stories on the global stage.

The purpose of our reporting is to raise global awareness of the opportunities present on the African continent, and to investigate and debate the critical issues which will shape the long-term future of Africa.

Global reporting on Africa is often misinformed, overly negative, and short-sighted. Over 85% of international reporting on Africa carries negative sentiment, often following the “lost continent” narrative.

AfricaLive will challenge global perceptions of the continent and put forward the vision of those African leaders that believe in a sustainable and prosperous future for Africa.

All AfricaLive reports, in addition to being hosted on this website, are distributed through targeted digital campaigns with the world’s most influential media titles. AfricaLive will take the key debates on Africa’s future to the people capable of making decisions that will influence the future path of the continent.
